Enterprise Tech Tip: Securing Attachments With Metro 1.3

Over the past year, I've posted a number of Tech Tips related to Metro, the high performance, extensible, easy-to-use web services stack that is implemented in the GlassFish application server. These tips have been written by members of the Web Services Security group at Sun Microsystems. I just posted another Metro-related tip. This one, written by Web Services Security group member Ashutosh Shahi, shows you how to secure a SOAP Messages with Attachments (SwA) attachment.

Enterprise Tech Tip: Combining Groovy, Grails, MySQL, and the Java Persistence API

With the addition of support for scripting languages in the Java platform, there has been a lot of interest in combining into web applications scripting languages such as Groovy, Java technologies such as the Java Persistence API (JPA), and databases such as MySQL. Read the tip Combining Groovy, Grails, MySQL, and the Java Persistence API and learn how to create an online catalog application using the Groovy language, the Grails framework, the MySQL database, the Java Persistence API, and the GlassFish application server. You'll also learn about the latest NetBeans IDE offering, NetBeans IDE 6.5 Milestone 1 (or M1 for short), which offers many new features including support for Groovy and Grails.

JavaFX Learning Curve Journal Updates

In August and September 2007, the Sun Developer Network staff started a Learning Curve Journal, a series designed to help users get started with the JavaFX Script programming language (shortened to JavaFX Script hereafter). A number of significant advances have been made to the language since then. Perhaps most important is the availability of a compiler-based version of JavaFX Script, which replaces the earlier interpreter-based version of the language. The Learning Curve Journal described the use of the interpreter-based version of the language. The Learning Curve Journal has been updated to show you how to use the compiler-based version of the language. Other changes have been made to make the articles current.

Part 1: Exploring JavaFX Script gets you started with a simple JavaFX program, that is, a simple program written in the JavaFX Script language. You'll learn how to set up your environment for programming in JavaFX Script and how to build and run a JavaFX program.

Part 2: Declarative User Interfaces focuses on the declarative style of coding enabled by JavaFX Script. You'll see how this style can make the code for a graphical application simpler and more intuitive.

Part 3: JavaFX Script Functions shows you how to use JavaFX Script functions to implement actions in a Java FX program.

Part 4: Accessing a Web Service demonstrates how to use JavaFX Script to access a web service. In doing that, it also shows how easy it is to access Java technology classes, such as Swing classes, from JavaFX Script.
