It's normal practice to import types from an external xsd file in WSDL like this: <wsdl:types> <xsd:schema xmlns:xsd="htt... When you use <dynamic-wsdl> and have Commons XMLSchema on the class path, Spring-WS inlines the xsd in the wsdl. But that doesn't happen when you use <static-wsdl> . You can define a SimpleXsdSchema bean to expose the xsd: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <beans x... where the bean id "hello" should match the schemaLocation attribute in the WSDL (without the .xsd suffix). But note that the SimpleXsdSchema does not inline the xsd. It only makes the xsd available via an HTTP URL. Alternatively, you can simply put the xsd file under the content directory of the webapp (just link any CSS or JavaScript). Anyway, that's a lot of manual...

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...

The jQuery doc says: If you wish to use any of the meta-characters (such as !"#$%&'()*+,./:;?@[\]^`{|}~ ) as a literal part of a name, you must escape the character with two backslashes: \\ . So what are these meta-characters ? According to the CSS specification : In CSS, identifiers (including element names, classes, and IDs in selectors) can contain only the characters [a-zA-Z0-9] and ISO 10646 characters U+00A0 and higher, plus the hyphen (-) and the underscore (_); These meta-characters are the printable characters in the ASCII but outside the range allowed by CSS identifiers. They must be escaped, with two backslashes. Why two backslashes? Because one backslash is consumed by JavaScript, and with only one backslash in place, no backslash is passed to jQuery...

This is a simple web application with a single servlet and a single JSP page. It is intended to be a test bed for JSTL tags. You may want to store all syntax, rules, and exceptions in your head, but in my opinion nothing beats a simple test program that allows you play with it all you want. So here it is (build with Maven ). Prerequisites: Maven: http://maven.apache.org/ . You don't need any prior knowledge of Maven, but you need to install the binary. JBoss: http://jboss.org/jbossas/downloads/ , or Tomcat: http://tomcat.apache.org/ if you don't run the SQL tests. You need to know how to deploy a web application (shh! Don't tell your boss it's just copying a file to the deployment folder). Steps: The directory...

Start with this page: <!DOCTYPE html> <html> <head> <title>jQu... When you click "Submit", the form submits fine. Now turn the form to a jQuery dialog: <head> <title>jQuery UI Dialog</title> ... When you click "Submit", the form no longer submits! Why? When you convert the contents of the form into a dialog, the form becomes empty! The "Submit" button is no longer associated with the form. Conclusion: you should always put the form tag inside the element you are converting to a dialog.

In this note I'll show you how to create and package a JSP custom tag. The purpose of this tag is to display a random splash image for a home page, among a set of images. We should be able to add or delete candidate splash images from the WAR archive without the need to change the JSP. This is the intended use of the tag: <%@ taglib uri="http://custom.tag.com/demo" prefix... In the above example you provide a set of images named splash*.png (e.g., splash1.png, spalsh2.png, ...), and the tag will pick a random one to display when the JSP is rendered. Let's get started. I'll use Maven for this purpose. Create the standard Maven directory structure ./pom.xml ./src ./src/main ./src/main/jav... pom.xml <project xmlns="http://maven.apache.org/POM/4.0.0"... SplashTag.java package tagdemo; import java.util.ArrayList......

You can use applet , object , or embed tags to embed an applet in your HTML page. However, The applet tag is interpreted by both IE and Mozilla family of browsers. The applet tag won't automatically download a JRE if the Java Plug-in isn't already installed. The object tag works only for IE The embed tag works only for Mozilla family of browsers, i.e., Firefox. Use applet tag: <applet code="MyApplet.class" width="200" ... Use object tag: <!-- latest JRE --> <OBJECT classid="clsid:... Use embed tag: <!-- highest JRE that supports MIME type ... Mixed object and embed tag: <object classid="clsid:8AD9C840-044E-11D1-B3E9... You need to use a different name for the Mozilla embed tag and use that name to refer to the applet...

The scriptable attribute defaults to false . However, even when you set it to true , there is a time delay between when the applet is loaded and when it becomes scriptable . The following code may fail: <html><body> <object classid="clsid:8AD9C840-04... You need to wrap the JavaScript like this: <script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascrip...

This is a script to tail a log file through the web browser. It uses AJAX, apache web server, mod_python, UNIX utilities tail (requires the --lines switch) and wc . The log file may reside on the web server or any other host accessible from the web server through SSH. Although it's written in python, it should be easy to port to other languages such as Perl. Apache httpd.conf : LoadModule python_module modules/mod_python.so ... Python script: import time, os from os.path import basename ...
