Eclipse Development using the Graphical Editing Framework and the Eclipse Modeling Framework

2010/01/15February 17, 2004


Eclipse Development using the Graphical Editing Framework and the Eclipse Modelling Framework is written for developers who use the Eclipse SDK to develop plug-in code. This IBM Redbook is intended for a technical readership and for developers who already have good knowledge and experience in Eclipse plug-in development.

In this book, we examine two frameworks that are developed by the Eclipse Tools Project for use with the Eclipse Platform: the Graphical Editing Framework (GEF), and the Eclipse Modeling Framework (EMF). We cover both the Graphical Editing Framework and the Eclipse Modeling Framework, but these frameworks can be used separately, and there is no dependency between them.

This book provides a high level introduction to these frameworks so that Eclipse plug-in developers can consider whether the frameworks will be useful for the requirements of their particular development environment. Next, tips and techniques are provided for writing code that uses GEF and EMF. Also, a detailed example is developed to illustrate a GEF editor that uses an EMF model.

In Detail

Although JasperReports is the world's most popular open source Java reporting library, it has always lacked one thing: It doesn't provide a tool to visually design reports. iReport is a visual report designer built on JasperReports that fills that lack. It is an intuitive and easy-to-use visual report builder/designer for JasperReports, written in 100% pure Java.

This beginner's tutorial book is a straightforward introduction to the iReport environment taking an example-oriented approach in developing your skills from scratch. It shows you how to use iReport for creating reports in PDF, RTF, and other formats, which can be delivered over the Web for immediate access.

This book will guide you through using iReport to develop various types of reports from a simple report through to dynamic enterprise-level reports based on realistic examples based on a sample Inventory Management System. It takes you through the main types of report available in iReport, and shows you exactly how to create them. It shows you how to use different report templates, how to use special kinds of data operations to generate more powerful reports, combine data to produce master-detail reports, add images, control the layout and formatting of your report and many more.

It will also show you how to use the NetBeans IDE to create Java projects with reporting facilities. You will learn how to vary report format and layout according to business requirements.

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.
