Need for Java Business Integration and Service Engines in NetBeans

by David Salter Frank Jennings | February 2008 | Architecture & Analysis BPEL SOA Web Services Java Open Source

To gain a greater understanding of concept of SOA applications, BPEL processes and JBI applications, and to enable us to develop enterprise level SOA applications, we need to understand JBI in further depth, and how JBI components can be linked together. This article by Frank Jennings and David Salter will show the JBI Service Engine is supported within the NetBeans Enterprise Pack.

Nesting, Extend, Placeholders, and Mixins

by Ben Frain | June 2013 | Web Development

In this article by Ben Frain from the book Sass and Compass for Designers, we will look at the capabilities of Sass and Compass when it comes to actually writing styles. These are the core capabilities likely to be employed when working with Sass and Compass day-to-day. In this article, we will learn:

  • What nesting is and how it allows styles to be modularized

  • How the @extend directive allows us to extend existing rules

  • To use placeholder selectors to extend styles only when needed

  • What mixins are and how we can use them to easily produce oft-needed code

  • How to write a mixin for our own purposes

NetBeans IDE 7: Building an EJB Application

by Rhawi Dantas | June 2011 | Java Open Source

NetBeans is a Java Integrated Development Environment, IDE, which enables fast application development with the most adopted frameworks, technologies, and servers. Different than other IDEs, NetBeans comes already pre-packaged with a wide range of functionality out of the box, such as support for different frameworks, servers, databases, and mobile development.

In this article by Rhawi Dantas, author of NetBeans IDE 7 Cookbook, we will cover:

  • Creating an EJB project
  • Adding JPA support
  • Creating Stateless Session Bean
  • Creating Stateful Session Bean
  • Sharing a service through Web Service
  • Creating a Web Service client

NetBeans Platform 6.9: Advanced Aspects of Window System

by Jürgen Petri | August 2010 | Java Open Source

The NetBeans Platform provides the requirements for window management via its docking framework, known as the NetBeans Window System. In the previous article we learned how to create new windows, that is, TopComponents, and also learned how to position them.

The NetBeans Platform also provides an API to let you programmatically access the window system. Together, the window system and its API fulfill all the requirements described below, letting you concentrate on your domain knowledge and business logic rather than on the work of creating a custom window management facility for each of your applications. In this article by Jürgen Petri, author of NetBeans Platform 6.9 Developer's Guide, we will learn:

  • How to customize the default window layout
  • How to group views so that they open and close as a unit
  • How to change the persistence of views across restarts of the application

NetBeans Platform 6.9: Working with Actions

by Jürgen Petri | August 2010 | Java Open Source Web Development

In this article we focus on "Global" Actions, that is, those that should always be enabled. These types of Actions are not very different from standard Swing Actions. For example, you might want to create "New Task" and "Edit Task" Actions that can be invoked from the menubar and toolbar of the TaskManager.

The topics covered in this article by Jürgen Petri, author of NetBeans Platform 6.9 Developer's Guide, will teach you the following:

  • How to create global Actions
  • How to add menu items
  • How to add toolbar buttons
  • How to add keyboard shortcuts

NetBeans Platform 6.9: Working with Window System

by Jürgen Petri | August 2010 | Java Open Source

The requirements for window management have become quite complex and can only be met by means of an external docking framework, otherwise all these various concerns would need to be coded (and debugged, tested, and maintained) by hand. The NetBeans Platform provides all of these features via its docking framework, known as the NetBeans Window System.

In this two-part article series by Jürgen Petri, author of NetBeans Platform 6.9 Developer's Guide, you will be introduced to the most important topics relating to working with the NetBeans Window System. Not only did you learn how to create new windows, that is, TopComponents, but you also learned how to position them, group them, and extend their persistence. In this article series we will learn:

  • How to define views
  • How to position views in the main window
  • How to customize the default window layout
  • How to group views so that they open and close as a unit
  • How to change the persistence of views across restarts of the application

Network Based Ubuntu Installations

by Christer Edwards | March 2010 | Linux Servers Open Source

This article by Christer Edwards, outlines how to install Ubuntu using the network installer. This utility allows you to install directly over the network, instead of using a CD or DVD image. It does require a small CD boot image, but beyond that it is entirely network dependent.

These steps can be used to install over the WAN from a public Ubuntu repository, or over the LAN from an exported Ubuntu CD or private repository. Network installations are generally faster than CD based installations, particularly when done over a Local Area Network.

Network Configuration—IPv6 with FreeBSD

by Babak Farrokhi | January 2009 | Open Source

Today, everyone knows that the internet is running out of IP addresses. In fact, the current infrastructure of the internet is running over legacy IP (aka IPv4) protocol that was not designed for such wide-spread and complicated use (for example, IPv4 was not designed to run in a refrigerator).

The original design of Internet Protocol (IPv4) is not efficient for today's networks. And even worse, we are running out of IPv4 addresses in a few years!

FreeBSD uses the IPv6 code from the KAME project. The KAME project (see www.kame.net) has been inactive since 2005, and FreeBSD developers have eversince maintained the IPv6 protocol stack.

In this article by Babak Farrokhi, we will look into the following:

  • IPv6 facts
  • Using IPv6
  • Routing IPv6
  • RIP6
  • Multicast routing
  • Tunnelling

Network Configuration—Tunneling with Free BSD

by Babak Farrokhi | April 2008 | Open Source

When talking about tunneling, different definitions come to people's minds. Basically, tunneling is transmitting data that is encapsulated into a pipe, over a public network (for example, the Internet). However, there are different methods to tunnel data over a public network for different approaches. For example, when security is a concern, tunnel protocols with cryptography are more favorable. But when performance has higher priority, protocols with lower packet overheads will be chosen. FreeBSD 7 has a built-in support for a number of important tunneling protocols, although there are also many third-party applications in FreeBSD packages that support more tunneling protocols.

This article by Babak Farrokhi, introduces the manipulation of tunnel interfaces in the FreeBSD 7 operating system. Let's have a look into the following:

  • GRE
  • IPSEC
