by David R. Heffelfinger | September 2009 | Open Source

In this article series by David Heffelfinger, we have explained how NetBeans can help us develop web applications that take advantage of the JavaServer Faces framework.

The following topics will be covered in this article:

  • Creating a JSF project with NetBeans
  • Generating a form to capture user data by dragging a JSF form from the NetBeans palette into our page
  • Laying out JSF tags by taking advantage of the JSF tag
  • Using static and dynamic navigation to define navigation between pages
  • Using the NetBeans New JSF Managed Bean wizard to create a JSF managed bean and automatically add it to the application's configuration file

Overview of CherryPy - A Web Application Server (Part1)

by Sylvain Hellegouarch | September 2009 | Content Management

In this two-part article by Sylvain Hellegouarch, we will see how the project is designed and structured. We will first go through a basic CherryPy example. Then we will go through the CherryPy core, the publishing-object engine, and see how it wraps the HTTP protocol in an object-oriented library. Our next step will be to explore the concept of hooking into the core, the CherryPy library, and the tool mechanism. We will then review how CherryPy handles errors and exceptions and how you can benefit from it.

Create a Quick Application in CakePHP: Part 1

by Ahsanul Bari Anupom Syam | September 2009 | MySQL Open Source PHP

In this article by Ahsanul Bari and Anupom Syam, we will learn some of the important aspects of CakePHP. We will learn how we can create an application that we call the CakeTooDoo. It can manage to-do lists, list all the tasks, add tasks, edit tasks, and delete tasks.

This article will show how we can create a database that follows the Cake convention, and how to configure Cake to use it. It will also discuss how to create models, controllers, views, and the conventions that we need to follow to make them work together.

We will discuss a few important model functions like find(), create(), save(), del() and the use of controller functions like set() and redirect(). The HTML Form and the Time Helper will also be introduced, and we will see how the functions of these helpers can make it easier to display views.
