Swing Extreme Testing

2016/09/24June 3, 2008


The Extreme approach to complete Java application testing

  • Learn Swing user interface testing strategy

  • Automate testing of components usually thought too hard to test automatically

  • Practical guide with ready-to-use examples and source code

  • Based on the authors’ experience developing and testing commercial software

In Detail

Thorough testing is the basis of good software. Whether we use an agile development methodology such as Extreme Programming, or a more traditional approach, we must test our software at the unit level and application level. The tests must run automatically and cover all aspects of the software.

In this book, the authors draw on more than 20 years of experience to show how automated testing can be applied to a real commercial product.

This book will teach you how to automatically test user interfaces (Swing GUIs), the help system, internationalization, log files, spreadsheets, email, and web services, how to perform tests involving multiple JVMs, and a host of other things. These tests are applied at the module level (unit tests) and at the application level (function tests).

The authors have developed the test processes in the broader context of an Extreme Programming (XP) methodology. However, the testing techniques are certainly not specific to XP, and may be applied within any given development methodology.

IBM WebSphere eXtreme Scale 6

2016/10/02November 5, 2009


Build scalable, high-performance software with IBM's data grid

  • Get hands-on experience with eXtreme Scale APIs, and understand the different approaches to using data grids

  • Introduction to new design patterns for both eXtreme Scale and data grids in general

  • Tutorial-style guide through the major data grid features and libraries

  • Start working with a data grid through code samples and clear walkthroughs

In Detail

A data grid is a means of combining computing resources. Data grids provide a way to distribute object storage and add capacity on demand in the form of CPU, memory, and network resources from additional servers. All three resource types play an important role in how fast data can be processed, and how much data can be processed at once. WebSphere eXtreme Scale provides a solution to scalability issues through caching and grid technology. Working with a data grid requires new approaches to writing highly scalable software; this book covers both the practical eXtreme Scale libraries and design patterns that will help you build scalable software.

Starting with a blank slate, this book assumes you don't have experience with IBM WebSphere eXtreme Scale. It is a tutorial-style guide detailing the installation of WebSphere eXtreme Scale right through to using the developer libraries. It covers installation and configuration, and discusses the reasons why a data grid is a viable middleware layer. It also covers many different ways of interacting with objects in eXtreme Scale. It will also show you how to use eXtreme Scale in new projects, and integrate it with relational databases and existing applications.

This book covers the ObjectMap, Entity, and Query APIs for interacting with objects in the grid. It shows client/server configurations and interactions, as well as the powerful DataGrid API. DataGrid allows us to send code into the grid, which can be run where the data lives. Equally important are the design patterns that go alongside using a data grid. This book covers the major concepts you need to know that prevent your client application from becoming a performance bottleneck. By the end of the book, you'll be able to write software using the eXtreme Scale APIs, and take advantage of a linearly scalable middleware layer.

JavaServer Pages™

2012/04/20April 06, 2000


JavaServer Pages™ (JSP) is a new technology that facilitates the development of the dynamic, interactive, content-rich Web pages now in great demand. Cross-platform, fast, easily changed, and extensible, JSP overcomes the limitations of previous Web development technologies and is rapidly becoming an acknowledged standard. Sun has included JSP as a formal part of the Java™ 2 Enterprise Edition, and every vendor of application servers supports the technology.

JavaServer Pages™ is a hands-on guide to building dynamic Web pages with JSP. Appropriate for all Web designers--whether or not you are familiar with the Java programming language--the book takes you from the basics to the most advanced dynamic Web site development techniques. It presents the many relevant technologies, including beans, servlets, and Java language essentials, and shows how they work with JSP to bring sophistication and flexibility to your Web site.

You will find fascinating background on the evolution of the World Wide Web and how JSP resolves many of the drawbacks of other Web development technologies, including Active Server Pages (ASP). The book then demonstrates the step-by-step basics of Web development with JSP, beans, and just enough Java programming to add better control to pages. Moving beyond these basics, the book addresses more advanced topics, including servlets, creating one's own beans, and JSP and databases. It shows specifically how these technologies come together to support the Web applications of e-commerce, customized pages, and ad targeting. Also included is a CD-ROM, containing Tomcat™, Jakarta™, and extensive examples of JavaServer Pages™.

Specific topics covered include:

  • JSP templating, scriptlets, conditionals, and loops

  • Request-time expressions

  • Bean instances and serialization

  • Manual and automatic session scope

  • Database access from Java

  • JDBC and beans

  • Creating a bean for personalization

  • The servlet API

  • JSPs and XML

  • Threads and custom tags

A large-scale example running throughout the book demonstrates the leading edge of real-world Web development. All examples are based on Jakarta™ and Tomcat™, the reference implementation of JSP developed for use with Apache Web server and others. A convenient appendix summarizes JSP 1.1 tags.


Ant Developer’s Handbook

2010/04/01October 22, 2002


Ant has emerged as the preferred building tool for Java developers, automating tedious compilation, test, and code management. Many Java developers are aware of Ant but there is little documentation to assist in getting started with the Ant tool. Even experienced developers who already use some of the features of the Ant tool, struggle with the more advanced aspects. This book will educate those devlopers in these more advanced topics, and help them get more out of the tool. The Ant Developer's Handbook begins with a rapid introduction to obtaining, installing, and configuring Ant and covers all major feature sets and use practices.

Ant is a cross-platform build and configuration management tool. It is written in Java, and uses XML as its file format, thereby allowing entire development teams to share Ant build files, regardless of the operating system each developer is using. Ant can perform nearly any common configuration management function, including:

  • compiling application source code.

  • running test suites and building archive files.

  • moving/copying files to server machines.

  • interacting with source control systems.

DB2 Java Stored Procedures: Learning by Example

2009/12/14September 06, 2000


Stored procedures can provide major benefits in the areas of application performance, code re-use, security, and integrity. The DB2 Family of products has offered support for stored procedures for some time, with each release offering significant enhancements over the last.

In the meantime, Java’s inherent portability and openness, combined with the availability of skilled programming resource, has made it an increasingly attractive choice as the central plank in the e-business strategy of many organizations.

Until recently, DB2 did not support stored procedures written in Java, so the advantages of the two technologies could not be combined. The latest releases of DB2 have changed all that, opening up new possibilities for secure, highly portable application development.

This IBM Redbook aims to give the reader an in-depth understanding of the techniques and issues associated with the development of DB2 stored procedures written in SQLJ and JDBC. The extensive collection of sample code presented in this book and included on the accompanying CD-ROM was designed to run against DB2 UDB Server across the OS/390, Windows, and UNIX platforms.
