The jMaki tutorial from SWDP explained the different approaches to load your own data into a jMaki widget. The jMaki widget models have formalized since then and so the code there no longer works. This TOTD explains how a combo box widget in a JSP page gets it data from a bean. This TOTD uses NetBeans IDE configured with jMaki plugin and GlassFish. Create a new Web application project using...
If you attended JavaOne 2007 or any other conference afterwards where Metro (JAX-WS + WSIT/Tango) team presented, then you've probably seen this demo. The demo shows an Excel 2007 spreadsheet invoking a Secure and Reliable endpoint deployed on GlassFish. Today, I'm announcing the availability of the WSIT endpoint and Excel client code with full instructions to build,...
Doris pointed out that one of my earlier post is not working any more. That entry explained the steps to create a Web application, deployed on GlassFish V2, and contained a jMaki-wrapped Yahoo Data Table widget pulling data from JavaDB using the JPA. The main reason for this is because jMaki data models have evolved since I wrote the original entry and are now formalized. Here is the delta...
ActiveRecord-JDBC 0.5 is now available. As mentioned earlier, one of the main features in this release is simplified database configuration for JRuby-on-Rails applications. From the release notes: It is no longer necessary to specify :driver and :url configuration parameters for the mysql,  postgresql, oracle, derby, hsqldb, and h2 adapters. This means that if you deploy a Rails...
jMaki is a light-weight framework for build Web 2.0 applications. It provides support for multiple languages - Java (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6) , PHP, Ruby (1, 2), Phobos (1). The numbers in parentheses indicate the entries that I've created showing jMaki support for that language. As evident, I've not created a single entry for PHP yet. This entry is going to change that :) This entry shows how to...
Quercus is Caucho Technology's 100% Java implementation of PHP 5. Ludo described the steps to deploy PHP web applications on GlassFish. Caucho has released a new version of Quercus since then. This blog entry is an update to the steps described earlier. First, PHP-enable GlassFish. Unjar quercus-3.1.1.war and copy the JAR files in "WEB-INF/lib" directory to "GLASSFISH_HOME...
This TOTD describes how to convert a stateless session EJB to a Web service and uses information from this thread. Add @javax.jws.WebService annotation at the top of your EJB class. The modified code looks like: @javax.ejb.Stateless<br> <b><font color="#FF9966">@javax.jws.WebService</font></b><br> public class HelloSessionBean implements server....
Watch a 25-minute video as Ed Ort deep dives on Project Tango (part of Metro) with me. How to play the interview ? - Clicking on the image above takes you to the main page where different interviews are located. On that page, click on the Play button (sideways triangle) in the bottom left corner instead of "LOW BAND" or "HIGH BAND" buttons. More than one person asked me this...
In the JRuby Hackday, Nick Sieger described the process models of a Rails application deployed using Traditional C-based Ruby on Mongrel, JRuby on Mongrel, and JRuby on GlassFish. In this blog entry I'm capturing a brain dump from him after the event. The images below shows process models in each of the above mentioned approaches. The containment of boxes in each image is shown in terms...
In a previous screencast, I showed how to develop a Rails application fetching data from the MySQL database and deploy it in GlassFish. GlassFish comes pre-bundled with JavaDB. Based upon a user request, this TOTD shows to use JavaDB database instead of MySQL. Here are the steps required to replace MySQL database configuration with JavaDB. You can either mix these steps with the existing...
