Griffon in Action is a comprehensive tutorial written for Java developers who want a more productive approach to UI development. After a quick Groovy tutorial, you'll immediately dive into Griffon and start building examples that explore its high productivity approach to Swing development.
Fully updated for the Java 2 Platform, Standard Edition version 5.0, the third edition of this praised book is a one-stop resource for serious Java developers. This book shows you the parts of Java Swing API that you will use daily to create graphical user interfaces (GUI). You will also learn about the Model-View-Controller architecture that lies behind all Swing components, and about customizing components for specific environments.
Dedicated to my wife and our two children. My dear wife’s support made it possible for me to devote the time necessary to develop my web site and write this guide. To all the new and experienced swing traders that read this book ... May the swing be with you.
Most of the machines that have been developed to improve our lives serve a single purpose. Just
try to drive to the store in your washing machine or vacuum the living room with your car and this
becomes quite clear. Your computer, by contrast, serves many functions. In the office or library,
you may find it invaluable as a word processor. Once you get home, slip in a DVD and your
computer takes on the role of a television. Start up a flight simulator and it assumes the properties
of anything from a hang glider to a Learjet. Launch an mp3 player and you suddenly...
Many advanced systems were developed for forklift
applications such as rear combination lights for
improved protection and reliability, traction & brake
control (TBC), system of active stability™ (SAS). In
1999, The Toyota SAS was first introduced on the
7-series. It is an electronic controlled system, which
automatically observe and controls over 3000 key
forklift functions, which senses instability and then
instantly engages the swing lock cylinder to help reduce the risk of lateral tip-overs...
icket is an open source, component-oriented (POJOs-based), lightweight Java web application development framework that brings the Java Swing event-based programming model to web development. Wicket pages can be mocked up, previewed, and later revised using standard WYSIWYG HTML design tools.
Wicket provides stateful components, thereby improving productivity. It has an architecture and rich component suite that aims to bring back the object orientation and, more importantly, the fun that is missing from the Java web development space. With the impending 1.
Developed by Sun Microsystems (James Gosling)
A general-purpose object-oriented language
Based on C/C++
Designed for easy Web/Internet applications
fixes some clumsy features of C++
automatic garbage collection
rich pre-defined class library
focus on the data (objects) and methods manipulating the data
all functions are associated with objects
almost all data types are objects (files, strings, etc.)
potentially better code organization and reuse...
A technique for developing a program in which the solution is expressed in terms of objects -- self- contained entities composed of data and operations on that data.
Programmer thinks about and defines the attributes and behavior of objects.
Often the objects are modeled after real-world entities.
Very different approach than function-based programming (like C).
Understanding the value propositions of J2EE
Getting a big picture of J2EE architecture and platform
Getting high-level exposure of APIs and Technologies that constitute J2EE
You don't have to understand all the details
Understanding why J2EE can be used for as a platform for development and deployment of web services
With the wide swings in the stock prices in recent years, students of money and banking have become increasingly interested in what drives the stock market. As a result, I have expanded the discussion of this market by describing simple valuation methods for stocks and examining recent developments in the stock market and the link between monetary policy and stock prices.
JavaServer Faces (JSF) is an exciting new technology that will change the way
we build user interfaces for Java 2 Enterprise Edition applications. With the
introduction of JSF, we can finally create user interfaces simply with a set of
reusable components. And with a component-based framework, Web applications
are finally on a more level playing field with client-based User Interface
(UI) frameworks such as Swing. Now, Web developers will be able to use and
reuse components off the shelf in their applications so we will see tool support
and components implemented for JSF....
Today’s wind energy industry is at a crossroads. Global economic instability has threatened
or eliminated many financial incentives that have been important to the development of
specific markets. Such economic sponsorship of energy generation is not unique to
renewables; fossil based sources are also subsidized in many different countries. However,
for a technology like wind energy whose markets are still developing, incentives can be
critical for industry growth.
Synopsis by Rebecca Rohan Professional Java developers who've come as far as they can without exploiting threads will find their skills bumped up a few notches by the time they finish Paul Hyde's Java Thread Programming. In a five-and-a-half-page first chapter, the book gives a basic concept briefing, then gets down to business with an example-rich education from the starting thread through inter-thread communication, thread groups, thread pooling, threads and Swing, and more.
As one of the most popular software languages for building Web applications, Java is often the first programming language developers learn. The latest version includes numerous updates that both novice and experienced developers need to know. With this invaluable book-and-video package, Java authority Yakov Fain fully covers Java?s new features as well as its language extensions, classes and class methods, and the Swing Application Framework. For each lesson that he discusses in the book, there is an accompanying instructional video to reinforce your learning experience....
To put first things first, I’d like to make it plain that I
believe playing baseball should be fun, especially for
the young. For their individual development, as well as for
the enjoyment of doing for themselves and by themselves,
they should have the minimum of parental playing-field
supervision and adult instruction.
It’s absolutely essential that boys—and girls, if they’re part
of the gang or playing softball among themselves—spend
their early years learning to swing a bat and catch a ball. The
fundamentals (and the fun) must come first....
At the annual JavaOne conference in May 2007, Sun Microsystems announced a new product family
named JavaFX. Its stated purpose includes enabling the development and deployment of content-rich
applications on consumer devices such as cell phones, televisions, in-dash car systems, and browsers.
Josh Marinacci, a software engineer at Sun, made the following statement very appropriately in a recent
Java Posse interview: “JavaFX is sort of a code word for reinventing client Java and fixing the sins of the
