Developing SOA Applications using POJOs

by David Salter | April 2010 | Java

PoJos – Plain Old Java Objects, are, as the name describes, simple, ordinary Java objects. They do not have to be derived from a specific class, nor do they have to implement any specific interfaces. In the modern world of Java EE development where the latest frameworks have made enterprise development easier, wouldn't it be good if we could develop SOA based applications using PoJos? Fortunately, GlassFish ESB (OpenESB) allows us to do this using the PoJo Service Engine. In this article by David Salter, author of Building SOA-Based Composite Applications Using NetBeans IDE 6 and Seam 2.x Web Development, we will cover:

  • GlassFish ESB
  • Creating a PoJo and Deploying to GlassFish ESB
  • Creating A SOAP Binding for PoJos

Manipulation of DOM Objects using Firebug

by Chandan Luthra Deepak Mittal | April 2010 | Open Source Web Development

In this article by Chandan Luthra and Deepak Mittal, authors of Firebug 1.5: Editing, Debugging, and Monitoring Web Pages, we will have a small introduction to DOM as well as discussing how to modify/edit values of properties and constants of any DOM object using Firebug.

Document Object Model (DOM) is a cross-platform and language-independent convention for representing and interacting with objects in HTML. DOM supports navigation in any direction (such as parent and previous sibling) and allows for arbitrary modifications. Through JavaScript, one can easily traverse within the DOM. Browsers rely on layout engine (for example, Gecko, Trident/MSHTML, Presto, and so on) to parse HTML into DOM. In other words, DOM is a huge hierarchy of objects and functions, just waiting to be tickled by JavaScript. Firebug helps us find DOM objects quickly and then edit them on the fly. We will be discussing the following features of Firebug in this article:

  • Inspecting DOM
  • Filtering properties, functions, and constants
  • Modifying DOM on the fly
  • JavaScript code navigation
