2 Web Development with Karsten Schulz Terp-Nielsen Master Principal Sales Consultant Oracle Denmark

3 Agenda  JDeveloper 10g overview  Application Developer Framework (ADF)  Web Development with Struts

4 Full Lifecycle Support Deploy Test Build Design DebuggingTuning Data Modeling ApplicationModeling Coding Deployment ConfigurationManagement IDEPlatform Infrastructure

5 JDeveloper Framework Support  J2EE Frameworks – Application Development Framework (ADF) – Apache Struts support – ADF Business Components – Oracle 9i/AS10g Toplink – UiX – Java Server Faces (JSF)

6  Implements standard J2EE best practices  Model-View-Controller (MVC) design pattern  Focus on the application, not the “plumbing”  Consolidation and evolution of previous frameworks Oracle ADF End-to-end J2EE Framework Business Services Web and Wireless Clients Rich Clients Model Controller

8 Struts Model 1 Architecture  Browser access JSP pages – JSPs access JavaBeans that represent model  Control de-centralized – current page display, determined next page to display  Complex navigation requires use of scriplet code – Blurs the line between presentation and navigation code and making reuse difficult  Not a model to use in practice - maintenance difficult and does not scale well

9 Struts Model 1 Architecture Decentralized controller - in each JSP page Model 1

10 Struts Model 1 Architecture Servlet/ JSP Web Server Servlet/ JSP No MVC - Statically Linked Pages

11 Struts Model-View-Controller ~ Model 2  Introduces a controller servlet – Controller Servlet handle the data access and navigational flow – JSPs handle presentation  Controller centralizes the logic for dispatching requests to the next view based on the request URL, input parameters, and application state  Controller also handles view selection, which decouples JSP pages and servlets from one another

12 State Change Change Notification State Query Struts Model-View-Controller ~ Model 2 Servlet JavaBean Enterprise JavaBean Controller JSP View HTTP Request HTTP Response View Selection Database Model JDBC DB User Actions

13 Struts Model-View-Controller ~ Model 2 Servlet/JSP Controller Web Server Applying MVC to a Page Flow

14 Struts What is It ?  Open source Apache Jakarta Project  An implementation of MVC paradigm  A framework written in Java, to build web tier employing servlets, JSPs and XML  De facto standard for J2EE MVC applications  Bundled with JDeveloper and works on OC4J

15 Struts Components  ActionServlet class – Part of controller that receives user input and state changes and issues view selections  Action class – Part of controller that interacts with model to execute a state change or query  ActionForm Beans – Data (from Form) bundled into Javabean for reuse and perform validation  ActionForward class – stores path to a page where the user is sent to  ActionMapping – holds mapping that tells controller which Actions, ActionForms, ActionsForwards to use

16 Struts Components (2)  Struts-config.xml – Glue of the framework - holds declarations of the earlier listed components and other details. ActionServlets reads this file and create the configuration objects in memory  Strut Tag Libraries – Custom tags that simplify working with Struts aiding the view component and access Model thru’ Java Beans  Property files – store messages and handle different languages

17 Struts Struts Pictorially Page 1 Controller Struts- config. xml Mappings Business Logic Layer Data Layer View Layer Business Bean 1 JSP Engine Jsp 1 Business Bean 2 Business Bean 3 Jsp 3 Form Bean 1 Form Bean 2 Other Bean 1 request/session Web Browser Database path action [form bean] [forwards] App Server Jsp 2 JDBC

18 Struts ActionForm  Holds state and behavior for user input  ActionForms are JavaBeans with reset() and validate() methods for user input  ActionForm extends org.apache.struts.action.ActionForm  Typically one ActionForm bean created for each HTML form  ActionForm has corresponding property for each field on HTML form

19 Struts ActionForm Example public final class FAQForm extends ActionForm { private String question; private String answer;.. public String getQuestion(){ return question; } public void setQuestion(String question) { this.question = question; }.. public ActionErrors validate(ActionMapping mapping, HttpServletRequest request) { ActionErrors errors = new ActionErrors(); if ((getQuestion() == null) || (getQuestion().length() < 1)) errors.add("question", new ActionError("errors.question.required"));.. return errors; }

20 Struts Action  Action class receives the ActionForm(which holds the data) and you perform action/processing here  Action provides a loose coupling between Web tier and business tier  Controller decides which Action class, using the mapping info  Action is invoked by calling perform() method

21 Struts Action - Example public final class FAQQueryAction extends Action { public ActionForward perform(ActionMapping mapping, ActionForm form, HttpServletRequest request, HttpServletResponse response) throws IOException, ServletException { String result = null;... try { result = FAQHelper.getFAQHelper().query(actionForm, request); request.setAttribute("action", Constants.QUERY); }... return mapping.findForward( “ result ” ); }

22 Struts ActionMapping <action path="/faqQuery" type="faqapp.web.struts.actions.FAQQueryAction" name="FAQQueryForm" scope="request" validate="true" input="/">  ActionMapping object maps the Actions to URI, or path  Specified in struts-config.xml

23 Struts ActionForward  Encapsulates the destination of where to send control upon completion of the Action  The destination(JSP, HTML file, servlet) is detailed in the configuration file – struts-config.xml  Objects that have logical name for referring and a path property <forward name="success" path="/WEB-INF/FAQQuery.jsp"/>

24 Struts ActionServlet  Primary task is to route request URI to an Action class using the configuration information(struts-config.xml)  Is the director - working behind the scene, administering the behavior of controller  Configured using web.xml of the application and mapped to receive url patterns such as *.do  Only one ActionServlet can be loaded for an application  Used as a black box in most cases, though it can be extended

25 Struts struts-config.xml  Holds declarations of Struts components that define the configuration  Living blueprint of your application – What fields are on the forms – Where JSPs are found – Knows about every action and the resources needed  Power and flexibility of Struts is due to extracting out configuration information, across the frame work into struts-config.xml

26 Struts struts-config.xml - Example <!DOCTYPE struts-config PUBLIC "-//Apache Software Foundation//DTD Struts Configuration 1.0//EN ” ""> <form-bean name="FAQQueryForm “ type="faqapp.web.struts.forms.FAQQueryForm" /> <action path="/faqQuery" type="faqapp.web.struts.actions.FAQQueryAction" name="FAQQueryForm" scope="request" validate="true" input="/">

28 gets data to display (adds to beans in request/session)…or saves data from beans via business rules creates/reuses any associated form bean creates looks up path to determine action/ form bean interacts with lower layers - acts as adaptor between HTTP and layers below if submit, auto populates form bean from request params Page 1 Controller Struts- config. xml Mappings Business Logic Layer Data Layer View Layer Business Bean 1 Jsp Engine Jsp 1 Business Bean 2 Business Bean 3 Jsp 2Jsp 3 Form Bean 1 Form Bean 2 request/session Web Browser Business Data reads on start-up incoming requests path action [form bean] [forwards] passes control to relevant action to handle returns appropriate forward relevant page called processes custom tags – fill form elements from beans, display internationalized messages pure HTML sent to browser Jsp 2 Form Bean 2 Application Server Jsp 2 How it all Works

29 Struts JSP Tag Libraries  HTML JSP custom tags – bridge between a JSP view and the other components of a Web application – Tags relating to HTML forms, message and error handling, maintaining hyperlinks and internalization  Bean JSP custom tags – Tags useful for accessing beans, their properties,and defining beans based on access – Create new beans based on the value of request cookies, headers, and parameters in any scope  Logic tags – Tags for conditional generation of output text, looping, comparison/sub-string matching
