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
  • Testing the Composite Application

In this article by Vladimir Prelovac, we are going to dig deeper into the WordPress engine and discover ways to modify various aspects of the backend to match our specific needs with the help of the Post Types plugin.

Although WordPress is made primarily for the purpose of handling a blog, this basic functionality can be easily expanded to handle almost anything you want. The WordPress backend is very flexible, and can be customized to accommodate a lot of different purposes. For example, you could create a job portal or an e-commerce quite easily with WordPress, and those are just some of the possibilities.

Specifically, you will learn how to:

  • Implement localization support for users of other languages
  • Customize menus and submenus to change the way the WordPress backend looks
  • Handle file and image uploads

Developing Flood Control using XNA Game Development

by Kurt Jaegers | December 2011 | Beginner's Guides

While playable, Flood Control in its current form is rather rough. When the player clicks on game pieces, they simply flop to their new orientation. Completed rows vanish without a trace, being filled in so rapidly that it is hard to tell if they actually disappeared at all. The game never ends! Once you have started, you can play forever, not worrying about the underwater research lab actually filling up with water.

In this article,by Kurt Jaegars,author of XNA 4.0 Game Development by Example: Beginner's Guide – Visual Basic Edition we will address these issues by:

  • Animating the rotation of pieces, when manipulated by the player
  • Gradually fading out pieces of completed scoring chains
  • Animating the falling of pieces into place on the board
  • Implementing the flooding of the dome and adding increasing difficulty levels
  • Adding a SpriteFont to the game, and displaying the current level and score in their appropriate positions on the screen

All of these enhancements will give the player a better game experience, as well as give us the opportunity to learn more about how the SpriteBatch class can be used for animation and text display.

Developing and Deploying Virtual World Environment for Flash Multiplayer

by Makzan | August 2010 | Web Graphics & Video

Usually to play Flash virtual world, you load the web page in web browser and then log in with your username and password. You may need to fill out some basic information for the first time. Then the Flash player is launched and finally you are connected to the virtual world and can interact with others. The socket server handles the virtual world after the player is connected to the virtual world. What about those web pages for virtual world information and SWF files? Yes, we need another web server and database server to handle the normal web request that is not the multiplayer part.

In this three-part article series by Makzan, author of Flash Multiplayer Virtual Worlds, we will understand the relationship of the servers and install the needed servers one by one to get them to work with each other. We will cover the following in this article series:

  • Compare the different features among the SmartFoxServer Lite, Basic, and Pro versions
  • Compare the development and deployment environment
  • Download and set up a third-party HTTP server and database
  • Run an example from SmartFoxServer
  • Set up the administration panel

Developing a Web Project for JasperReports

by Deepak Vohra | May 2013 | Enterprise Articles Java

Eclipse IDE for Java EE provides project facets for various types of projects. In this article, we discuss a more generic project facet for web applications called the Dynamic Web Module project facet that adds support for Java Servlet API to build web applications. To demonstrate the use of the Dynamic Web Project we shall be using JasperReports as an example. Preparing presentation-quality reports is a routine occurrence, and several tools & APIs for creating reports are available. For Java developers, one of the most commonly used API is JasperSoft’s open source JasperReports, which is capable of producing a range of outputs, including HTML, PDF, presentations from either static data or data retrieved form a database table using an SQL query, and is designed to be integrated directly into Java/J2EE applications.

In this article by Deepak Vohra author of Java EE Development with Eclipse, we sets out to demonstrate the essentials of how JasperReports can be used in a web application created with Eclipse. The examples created in this article are a PDF report and an Excel report. The article has the following sections.
