One of the great advantages of XPages is the ability to extend its functionality by adding your own Java libraries or third-party offerings. In fact, the functionality you want is often available in a readily consumable form on OpenNTF. But what do you do when it isn't? This session is about how to use third party Java libraries in your Xpages applications - installing them, interfacing with existing code, configuring security and optimisation. Join me, and take your application's functionality to new heights.

Transcript

  • 1. 1 Coffee from a Friend: Using Third Party Java Libraries 2014/03/18– Matthew Fyleman
  • 2. 2  Matthew Fyleman  21 YearsasaNotes/Domino Developer  MostlyWorking on:  Xpagesconversions  Product development Who AmI?
  • 3. 3  Based on MyExperiences  Beginner Level!  Using JavaGenerally in XPages  Will focuson .jar files, but will look at other waysof incorporating Java  What to usewhen What isthisTalk About?
  • 4. 4  Why Java?  Advantagesover SSJS  Java Options  Prepackaged Options  .jarspackaged into Extension Libraries  OpenNTF.org  ApachePOI Example  Raw Libraries  Deploying  Incorporation  Security  Creating .jars  Questions What amI talking about?
  • 5. 5 It hasa better structure than ssjs  Stronglytyped  Object Oriented fromtheground up It‘sa very useful skill  Widelyused outsideNotes/Domino  Encouragesbetter programming practise Why Java?– 1. Thebasics
  • 6. 6 <<Demonstration>> Why Java?– 2. ItsFaster than SSJS But not asmuch asyou might think!
  • 7. 7 Seealso Stephan Wissel‘sblog post: http://www.wissel.net/blog/d6plinks/SHWL-8SLCVR Why Java?– 3. ItsEasier to Debug
  • 8. 8 Why Java?– 4. ThereareLotsof 3rd Party Libraries  AdobeAcrobat (PDF) Manipulation  Word and Excel Creation and Modification  XMLparsing  ... Many more  If you need it, thereisprobably a Java library out there  Tested and stable(relatively!)
  • 9. 9  Raw Java  You’realreadydoing this!  JavaClassFiles  Better for development  .jarsprovideobfuscation  .jarsareeasilyportable– writeonceuseanywhere  Managed Beans  Much easier to createthan you might think  Automatically work within ascope  .jar Files Java Options
  • 10. 10  Almost certainly donethisalready:  var vecThis= new java.util.Vector();  Can Import Packages  importPackage(java.util);  var vecThis= new Vector();  Can beadisadvantage, particularly for beginners! Java Options– Raw Java
  • 11. 11  Easyto create  In thecodesection under Java  Createnew java class Java Options– ClassFiles
  • 12. 12  Need to generate constructor?  Under thesourcemenu  GenerateConstructor using ...  Gettersand Setters?  Samemenu  Correct indentation?  Samemenu Java Options– Getting Help FromEclipse
  • 13. 13 Rulesfor Managed Beans  If you haveaconstructor, it must beparameterless  Fieldsin your classareonlypublically accessiblethrough gettersand setters  To support persistenceit should implement theSerializableinterface  It needsan entryin thefaces-config.xml file  SeePer Laustenspage‘Creating Your First managed bean for Xpages’ http://per.lausten.dk/blog/2012/02/creating-your-first- managed-bean-for-xpages.html Java Options– Managed Beans
  • 14. 14  You are probably not the first!  Check OpenNTF.org  Pre-Packaged into an Extension Library  Easyto Use  Documentation (?)  Onceext lib installed, no securitysettingsto think about Pre-Packaged Options
  • 15. 15  Demonstration Pre-Packaged Options
  • 16. 16  Not AlwaysAvailable  Extension Librariesneed to be deployed to the server!  What can you do if thisisnot an option? Pre-Packaged Options- Issues
  • 17. 17  Thiswasthesituation I found myself in on arecent project  Customer needed .docx filemanipulation  Customer would not permit third party deployment to the server  Deployed thePOI Libswithin myApplication  No Deployment to theServer (technically speaking!)  Simple  Still had accessto theFunctionality UsetheLibrary‘RAW‘
  • 18. 18  ThreeOptions: 1. Deployto theserver filesystem  Non-starter 2. Deployunder WEB-INF  Better but onlyuseif you are8.5.2 or lower 3. Deployto jar areaunder ‘code‘  Best option Deployment Options
  • 19. 19  Java Librariesfor manipulatingMicrosoft Word and Excel files  Open Source  Main library ispoi-3.9-20121203.jar  But you will need othersparticularly if you wish to work on docx and xlsx  dom4j-1.6.1.jar  stax-api-1.0.1.jar  xmlbeans-2.3.0.jar ApachePOI Project
  • 20. 20  To create an Excel spreadsheet using POI, have your code perform the following steps:  Createaworkbook object: var xl=new org.apache.poi.hssf.usermodel.HSSFWorkbook();  Add asheet to theworkbook: var sheet = xl.createSheet("Sheet 1"); ApachePOI Creating aSpreadsheet
  • 21. 21  Add arow to thesheet  They start at 0 row = sheet.createRow(rowCount++);  Writedatainto cellsinto each row cell = row.createCell((java.lang.Integer)(cellCount++)); cell.setCellValue(document.getItemValueString(“AField”));  Watch out! ApachePOI Creating aSpreadsheet
  • 22. 22  Demonstration Deployment
  • 23. 23  Sooner or later you will hit this  Need to edit the‘java.policy’ file  Proper wayisto databasespecificentry  For Production Systems  Doesn’t work on Domino 9 ?  For Dev EnvironmentsYou Can Cheat! grant { permission java.security.AllPermission; };  Seeblog post ‘JavaSecurity in Xpages’ fromStephan Wissel:  http://www.wissel.net/blog/d6plinks/SHWL-8JYAT5  don‘t missNathan Freeman‘scomment! Deployment - SecurityIssues
  • 24. 24  Similar to working with Excel:  Get thedocument  Get document’sparagraphs  Get thetext runsin theparagraphs  Search and replacein text runs  Get thetables  Iteratethrough therows  Iteratethrough thecells  Do paragraph search and replacein each cell ApachePOI Search and Replacein Word
  • 25. 25  Java Librariesfor manipulating AdobeAcrobat (pdf) documents  Open Source– but ApacheLicense!  Main library isitextpdf-5.5.0.jar  UnlikePOI, thisisall you need for basicPDFs iTextPdf
  • 26. 26  Itsopen sourceso itsfree, right?  Maybe, but check thelicense  E.g. ApacheLicense  Freeto useif your softwareisalso distributed under an ApacheLicense  Otherwisetheremaybeafeefor commercial use  iText – OEM license, 125 desktops, approx. $3,000 Deployment - LicenseIssues
  • 27. 27  Doing a lot of @Formula conversion to SSJS  Encountering a lot of List Ops  SSJShasno built in permutation operations  Wanted alibrary of List Op utilities What About MyOwn .jars
  • 28. 28 In Domino:  Createtheclassfiles  Test and debug  Go to packageexplorer view  Fileexport  Createthe.jar  Deployinto your database - Simple! MyOwn jar
  • 29. 29  We4IT– www.we4it.com  OpenNTF– www.openntf.org  Ulrich Krause– www.eknori.de  Wissel.net – Stephan Wissel‘sblog  XpagesPortableCommand Guide– Martin Donnelly et. al., IBM Press Resourcesand Information
