So why provide a JDBC RowSet co-bundle for the Java Web Services Pack 1.4 ? Many of you have contacted us with various questions on how to use the standard RowSet definitions and reference implementations that we have provided as part of JSR-114.
In this instance, we have put together a set of tutorials and samples, and also have structured this co-bundles so you can immediately over-lay use RowSet in any of the three target containers Sun's App Server 8.0 PE (this the same as the free J2EE 1.4 SDK), Sun's Web Server 6.1 , and Tomcat 5.0.
To use the co-bundle, and benefit the samples and tutorials we have provided, you will first need to grab the...
... and download a copy of the co-bundle
As a co-bundle to the JWSDP 1.4, the JDBC RowSet package must be overlaid on top of the JWSDP 1.4 installation directory. Typically most developers just download the zip file and expand it it in the JWSDP 1.4 directory.
How do I use the JDBC RowSet Co-bundle ?
Once you have overlaid the install bundle, you can quickly start using the JDBC RowSet co-bundle. Take a look at the
jdbc-rowset directory. You'll find three directories; however for starters point your browser to
jdbc-rowset/doc/index.html file and you'll be able to navigate from there.
You'll find a set of samples that cover usage of JDBC RowSet Implementations for the five standard reference definitions defined in JSR-114 :
JoinRowSet. All of these samples use the reference implementation of the API providered in the
rowset.jar in the
Specification and Reference Implementation Docs
You'll also find a copy of Specification and Javadoc for both the JSR-114 JDBC RowSet Implementations Specification and the Reference Implementation respectively.
Our tutorial provides a step-by-step guide that builds an application extending the original JDBC Tutorial sample and uses each JDBC RowSet Implementation to demonstrate it's usage.
Last, and most certainly not least we provide a real life application usage of
WebRowSet with SAAJ . You can deploy this application into one or more of the target J2EE containers described above.
