I am currently reworking Chapter 12 for the SOA Suite 11g Handbook. This chapter describes various types of interaction SOA Composite Applications can have with Java applications and components. Since the initial creation of this chapter – some 6 months ago – we have had the Patch Set 2 release of the SOA Suite. This patch set introduced some additional functionality in this particular area of the SOA Suite, including the EJB Binding directly based on a Java Interface rather than on an SDO service created for the EJB. While that last option did the job, it requires manipulation of the EJB that is to be invoked – to SDO enable it – and that was undesirable and sometimes even impossible.
This article describes about the simplest way to get going with the EJB Binding – Java based – in Patch Set 2 (18.104.22.168.0). Building on this example, you will probably find yourself able to do useful things with it.
The steps we will go through are:
1. Create the EJB that is to be invoked from the Composite application through EJB Binding. Make sure the remote interface is created as well. 2. Deploy this EJB (in this simple example to the same WebLogic Managed Server that is running the SOA More >
Rapid development of Rich JSF Web applications on top of EJB/JPA persistence (JSF on Rails – Demo 1)
Here you will find the first demo from my Devoxx 2008 presentation. It shows how you can rapidly create a rich web application based on Java Server Faces and EJB/JPA persistency using JDeveloper 11g and the ADF 11g framework. The presentation included below shows the steps one by one to create a rich web application. The JDeveloper 11g application can be downloaded as well. The end result looks something like:
it includes such features as: master detail tables with synchronization; column sort; run time column manipulation: resize, reposition and hide/show; popup with detailed context data; data driven, synchronized chart; accordion for better page real estate usage.
As I was preparing for my Devoxx presentation next Monday, I decided to look at the somewhat harder way of integrating a JPA based business tier into a JavaServer Faces web tier. The easy way – when using the ADF 11g framework in JDeveloper 11g is creating a Data Control for the Session Facade Bean. The Web Application can create data bindings for entities, entity collections and operations exposed in the Session Facade Bean that completely hide the injection or lookup details from the web tier developer. It’s the ADF responsibility to find the session bean and manage references to it.
However, if you do not use ADF, you need to establish the link between the Web Application and the JPA Business Service yourself.
The JEE 5 way of achieving this consists of a few simple steps – on top of the JPA entity definitions: (more…)
