This is a step-by-step guide to create a "contract-first" web service with Apache CXF. It's a lot easier than doing the same thing with Spring-WS. The project uses standard Maven directory layout. Define the data types ( src/main/resources/hello.xsd ): <xs:schema xmlns:xs="http://www.w3.org/200... Define the service ( src/main/resources/hello.wsdl ): <?xml version='1.1' encoding='UTF-8'?> <wsdl:de... Create pom.xml : <project xmlns="http://maven.apache.org/POM/4.... Generate jaxb bindings: $ mvn generate-sources Code the web service ( src/main/java/com/example/cxfdemo/HelloPortImpl.java ): package com.example.cxfdemo; import javax.j...

Spring-WS documentation says you can use a Jaxb object as parameter or return type, provided that it is annotated with javax.xml.bind.annotation.XmlRootElement , or is an instance of javax.xml.bind.JAXBElement . But that's a lot easier said than done! For example, if sayHelloResponse is defined as: <xs:element name="sayHelloResponse" type="tns:sayH... then the JAXB generated class is not annotated with XmlRootElement , therefore, unusable for Spring-WS. You have to define the type as: <xs:element name="sayHelloResponse"> <xs:compl... in order to generate a type annotated with XmlRootElement . But that is not always possible. Alternatively, you can use the Maven plugin maven-jaxb2-plugin with the jaxb2-basics-annotate plugin (yes, plugin inside plugin) to inject the XmlRootElement annotation into the generated JAXB class. This is the pom: <project xmlns="http://maven.apache.org/POM/4.0.0"... and the binding file: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="y......

Spring MVC 3.1 can send either JSON or HTML response on the same URL, depending on the type of response requested. With this mechanism, a page can be sent when directly requested from a link, but a JSON response can be sent in response to an AJAX request. This is the controller code: package com.example; import java.util.Map; ... In the above example, JSON response will be sent when the HTTP request contains header "Accept: application/json". HTML response will be sent then the header is "Accept: */*", or "Accept: text/html", or anything else. You can add a limitation that the HTML response does not produce "application/json". But then the question is which response will be sent when the HTTP header is "Accept: */*"? Both methods will...

Our custom tag, as implemented in the previous note , is broken when a template is used.

Then request the page with URL: http://localhost:8080/facelet-demo/home.jsf?name=Jack . You'll find that our hello tag works inside ui:repeat but fails to get the value defined by ui:param ! What's the problem? Our hello tag implementation evaluated the EL with the wrong EL context! This is the corrected implementation: package com.example; import java.io.IOExcep...

In the simple taglib example , I used a tag handler class to implement a taglib. This is an example to implement a taglib with a UI component. The purpose is to use a custom tag to split a string and print each part in a separate paragraph, i.e., print <p>john</p> <p>steve</p> <p>mike</p> with custom tag <my:foreach> : <my:foreach var="who" value="john steve mike"> ... These are the files: pom.xml <project xmlns="http://maven.apache.org/POM/4.0.0"... src/main/java/com/example/UIForeash.java : package com.example; import java.io.IOExcep... src/main/resources/META-INF/faces-config.xml : <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <faces-c... src/main/resources/META-INF/foreach.taglib.xml : <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <facelet... How to use: Put the JAR file generated by the above project in the WEB-INF/lib folder of the web app. If the web app is a Maven project, just add the taglib project as a dependency:...

This is a simple example to demonstrate the templating power of JSF facelets. If you've used struts tiles before, you'll recognize the simplicity of templating with facelets. I've stripped out everything else except the pages themselves, just to put our focus on facelets. This is a Maven based project, and you need Tomcat (or any servlet container) to run the resulting webapp. To begin with this is the list of files: ./pom.xml ./src/main/webapp/home.xhtml ./src... I left faces-config.xml in there for completeness sake, it may not be needed. The Maven POM ( pom.xml ): <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <project...

If you are looking for a solution for a progress bar, I direct you to the following resources: Bare Naked App provides a simple and elegant solution based on pure CSS with two images. You control the percentage of completion through the background-position attribute of the CSS. HTML: <img src="/images/percentImage.png" alt="... CSS: img.percentImage { background: white url(/imag... Images: (percentImage.png) (percentImage_back.png) WebAppers extended the above solution with JavaScript. They also added several colored images: JQuery UI has a built-in progress bar widget. However, if you want to get to understand some of the foobar needed to get CSS to work (in general) through this example, stay with me for the rest of this note. Initially I was thinking, a progress bar should be easy: just make...
