EJB3 | Stateless session bean

To build a statelesss session bean in EJB3, you need to create one interafce and on class. Interface is implemented by class and methods declared in the interaface are available to client for remote access. Bean class and interaface should be public. Bean class is annotated with the annotation @Stateless(mappedName="something") and interafce is annotated with @Remote annotation. Both are compiled and packed in jar file.

Coding for Remote Interface
package p1;
import javax.ejb.Remote;
public interface AdderIntf{
    int add(int x,int y);
Coding for Bean class
package p1;
import javax.ejb.Stateless;
public class Adder implements AdderIntf{
    public int add(int x,int y){
        System.out.println("x="+x+" , y="+y);
        int z=x+y;
        return z;
Both are compiled and packaged in jar file. you can you following command to package in jar file.
>jar cvf myejb.jar p1
Here p1 is the package in with two class files are produced by compiler.

Building client for statelesss session bean
Client for EJB may be application program, servlet or jsp. At the time of coding of client program, we need to pass server specific coding to Context object. Following program is using the EJB hosted  on weblogic server. So you can see some weblogic specific coding here.
import javax.naming.*;
import java.util.*;
class Add{
    public static void main(String ar[])throws Exception{
            Properties p=new Properties();
            InitialContext ctx=new InitialContext(p);
            p1.AdderIntf a1=(p1.AdderIntf)ctx.lookup("abc#p1.AdderIntf");
            int x=a1.add(10,20);
Above program will connect to weblogic server and invoke the method add of the EJB having JNDI name abc#p1.AdderIntf and result is received by this program.

Using HyperSQL (HSQLDB)

HSQLDB is a portable RDBMS implemented in pure java. It can be embedded with your application as well as can be used separately. It is very a small database that supports almost all features of the standard database system. It comes with small jar file that can be found in lib folder. The HSQLDB jar package is located in the /lib directory of the ZIP package and contains several components and programs. Core components of jar file are : HyperSQL RDBMS Engine (HSQLDB), HyperSQL JDBC Driver, Database Manager, and Sql Tool. Installing and Using Download: download latest release of HyperSQL database from website and extract it. You will see following contents. Here "bin" directory contains some batch files those can be used to run a swing based GUI tool. You can use runManagerSwing.bat to connect to database, but database must be on before running it. Directory lib contains File hsqldb.jar . It is the database to be used by you. Running database First

How to handle values from dynamically generated elements in web page using struts2

Some time you will see the form containing the button " Add More " . This facility is provided for the user to get the values for unknown number of repeating for some information. for example when you are asking to get the projects details from user, you need to put the option to add the more project for the user since you don't known how many projects user have. In the HTML form, you repeat the particular section to get the multiple values for those elements. In Html page , you can put the option to add new row of elements or text fields by writing the java script or using JQuery API. Now, the question is that how to capture the values of dynamically generated text fields on the server. Using the servlet programming you can get the values by using getParameters() method that resultants the array of the parameter having the same name. But this limit you to naming the text fields in the HTML form. To ally this approach, you have to take the same name for t

In Process Mode of HSQLDB in web application.

If you want to use the database into your web application, you can use the HSQLDB in In_Process mode. In this mode, you can embed the HSQLDB into your web application and it runs as a part of your web application programm in the same JVM. In this mode, the database does not open any port to connect to the application on the hosing machine and you don't need to configure anything to access it. Database is not expposed to other application and can not be accessed from any dabase tools like dbVisualizer etc. In this mode ,database will be unknown from any other person except you. But in the 1.8.0 version, you can use Server intance for external as well as in process access.  To close the databse, you can issue SHUTDOWN command as an SQL query.   In the in-process mode, database starts from JDBC with the associated databse file provided through  connection URL. for example   DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc:hsqldb:mydatabase","SA","");   Here myd
