    • How Wicket, Scala, andJava EE Can ImproveWeb DevelopmentBruno BorgesOracle Product Manager for Latin AmericaJava EE, GlassFish, WebLogic, Coherence2 Copyright © 2012, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved.
    • Who am I? Bruno Borges  Java developer since 2000  Speaker at Conferences – JustJava, JavaOne Brazil, The Developers Conference, ApacheCon  Evangelized Apache Camel and Apache Wicket in Brazil  Joined Oracle on July 2012 – Product Manager for Java EE, GlassFish and WebLogic  Married, lives in Sao Paulo, has a Golden Retriever, hiker and gamer3 Copyright © 2012, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved.
    • Agenda  All about Web Development  Apache Wicket Overview  Introducing Scala and the Gamboa Wicket DSL  Java EE for everything  The Gamboa Project4 Copyright © 2012, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved.
    • All About Web Development5 Copyright © 2012, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved.
    • 6 Copyright © 2012, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved.
    • Web designing process and tools Mock, draw, code7 Copyright © 2012, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved.
    • PREVIEW IN THE BROWSER8 Copyright © 2012, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved.
    • All about Web Development How do we build web sites and applications?  There are two ways to build web applications – bottom-up  Mock up interfaces, develop using a web framework, apply design – top-down  Design pixel-perfect prototype, adapt prototype to a web framework,  There’s no web framework able to do both… productively speaking  Pixel-perfect websites vs functional websites9 Copyright © 2012, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved.
    • Outside the Java Web Framework Land What are the technologies people use to build pixel-perfect sites?  Ruby on Rails  PHP  Python – Django Framework  JavaScript + REST – ExtJS – jQuery10 Copyright © 2012, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved.
    • What about functional websites? Component-based frameworks work better  Java Server Faces  GWT, Vaadin  Apache Wicket  others  Better use the bottom up design strategy11 Copyright © 2012, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved.
    • Java Frameworks for Pixel Perfect Websites Frameworks that are good for pixel-perfect websites  JSP / Servlets  Struts 2, Tapestry, Wicket  Java Server Faces, specifically Facelets  Play!, Lift  others  Better use the top down design strategy12 Copyright © 2012, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved.
    • What if we could have a framework that doesn’t force us to totally modify the work of a Web Designer for prototype?13 Copyright © 2012, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved.
    • Imperative vs Declarative HTML Markup What is the best HTML markup for pixel-perfect websites?  Pixel-perfect websites are always top-down – A lot of work to add server-side code to the prototype – And it would be good for web designers to continue to have a functional prototype after server-side code is added  Imperative – Must change from raw HTML markup to specific web framework markup  Declarative – Annotates markup to be accessed, and modified, later by the framework14 Copyright © 2012, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved.
    • Imperative Markup Before <form action=”save”> <input type=”text” name=”name” /> <input type=”submit” value=”Save” /> </form> After, using Apache Struts <s:form action=”save”> <s:input property=”name” /> <s:submit value=”Save” /> </s:form>15 Copyright © 2012, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved.
    • Does it run on the browser? Not really…  Imperative frameworks that modify the prototype – Web designers loose ability to preview in the browser – They must install, configure and run  Servlet containers, Ruby, or PHP servers  You really don’t want web designers touching server-side code  Specially programmers modifying HTML or CSS elements to fix things16 Copyright © 2012, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved.
    • Declarative Markup Before <form action=”save”> <input type=”text” name=”name” /> <input type=”submit” value=”Save” /> </form> After, using Apache Wicket <form wicket:id=”form”> <input type=”text” wicket:id=”name” /> <input type=”submit” value=”Save” wicket:id=”save” /> </form>17 Copyright © 2012, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved.
    • Programmers and Developers Happily Ever After…  Programmers focused on server-side programming  Web Designers able to modify client-side without messing server-side  Preview in the browser  Customer happy to see (statically) how the application is progressing – Open Firefox, go to file:///home/customer/project/web/index.html18 Copyright © 2012, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved.
    • Apache Wicket Quick overview19 Copyright © 2012, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved.
    • HTML Prototype The final product from the Web Designer /MyHomePage.html <html> <head><title>Apache Wicket</title></head> <body> <span>some message</span> <form> Name: <input type=”text” /> Email: <input type=”text” /> <input type=”submit” value=”Send” /> </form> </body> </html>20 Copyright © 2012, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved.
    • HTML Prototype The final product from the Web Designer /MyHomePage.html <html> <head><title>Apache Wicket</title></head> <body> <span wicket:id=”msg”>some message</span> <form wicket:id=”form”> Name: <input type=”text” wicket:id=”name” /> Email: <input type=”text” wicket:id=”email” /> <input type=”submit” value=”Send” /> </form> </body> </html>21 Copyright © 2012, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved.
    • Java side Where all the magic happens, object oriented /MyHomePage.java public class MyHomePage extends WebPage { public HomePage() { add(new Label(“msg”, “JavaOne”)); Form form = new Form(“form”) { public void onSubmit() { usrBean.salvar(getModelObject()); }}; form.add(new TextField(“name”)); form.add(new TextField(“email”)); form.setModel(new CompoundPropertyModel(new User())); add(form); } }22 Copyright © 2012, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved.
    • Easily Extensible  Just add the JAR with extra components to the classpath Gmap2 gmap = new Gmap2(“map”); page.add(gmap); <div wicket:id=”map”> Google Maps </div>23 Copyright © 2012, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved.
    • Apache Wicket And so many other features  jQuery as its client-side engine for – Core components – Ajax – WebSockets  Page composition by: Inheritance, Borders and Panels  Integration with CDI  Back button support  Several components, and also the WicketStuff Community24 Copyright © 2012, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved.
    • Scala Language25 Copyright © 2012, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved.
    • Scala Language Quick introduction  Object Oriented and Functional Language var foo = 8  Runs on JVM foo = “bar”  Statically typed  Compiles to Java byte code (sweeeet)  Extensible Type mismatch; found: String(“bar”)  Easy to define custom DSLs required: Int26 Copyright © 2012, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved.
    • Scala Language Functions  They are objects as well val func = () ⇒ println(“functional programming”) def callF(paramF: () ⇒ Unit) = paramF() callF(func)27 Copyright © 2012, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved.
    • Scala Language Very smart constructions  They may seem complex, but you get used to them val list1to9 = 1 to 9 toList for (i ← list1to9) { print(i) } list1to9.foreach(i ⇒ print(i))28 Copyright © 2012, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved.
    • Scala Language Very smart constructions val listA = List(1, 2) val listB = List(3, 4) val listC = listA :: listB // listC is a new List object val listD = listC :: 5 print(listD) // output: List(1,2,3,4,5)29 Copyright © 2012, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved.
    • Scala Language Very smart constructions val map = new HashMap[Int, String] map += 1 → "Number 1" map += 2 → "Number 2" map += 3 → "Number 3" println(map(2)) // 2 is the key, not the index! val romans = Map(1 → "I", 2 → "II", 3 → "III", 4 → "IV", 5 → "V") println(romanNumeral(4)) // outputs: "IV"30 Copyright © 2012, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved.
    • Back to Wicket Strong use of anonymous classes  Wicket programming model resembles Swing  Pushes developers to use anonymous, inner classes  Functional programming fits quite well into this model  Less code, less verbosity  Scala #win31 Copyright © 2012, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved.
    • Wicket + Scala: perfect combination Before, in Java /MyHomePage.java public class MyHomePage extends WebPage { @Inject private MyService service; public MyHomePage() { add(new Label(“msg”, “JavaOne”)); Form form = new Form(“form”, new CompoudPropertyModel(new User())){ public void onSubmit() { service.update(getModelObject()); } }; form.add(new TextField(“name”)); form.add(new TextField(“email”)); add(form); } }32 Copyright © 2012, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved.
    • Wicket + Scala: perfect combination Now, with Scala /MyHomePage.scala class MyHomePage extends WebPage { @Inject var service: MyService = _ add(new Label(“msg”, “JavaOne”)) object form extends Form(“form”, new CompoundPropertyModel(new User())) { add(new TextField(“name”)) add(new TextField(“email”)) override def onSubmit() = { service.update(getModelObject()) } } add(form) }33 Copyright © 2012, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved.
    • Wicket + Scala: perfect combination Now with specific Scala DSL for Wicket /MyHomePage.scala class MyHomePage extends WebPage with DSLWicket { @Inject var service: MyService = _ label(“msg”, “JavaOne”) val f = form(“form”, () ⇒ service.update(f.mobject)) f.scmodel(new User()) f.textField[String](“name”) f.textField[String](“email”) }34 Copyright © 2012, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved.
    • Java EE for everything else35 Copyright © 2012, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved.
    • Java EE 6 Filling the necessary gaps, extraordinarily well  Enterprise Java Beans  Contexts and Dependency Injection  Java Persistent API  Java Transaction API  Bean Validation  JAX-RS36 Copyright © 2012, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved.
    • And more stuff Like…  GlassFish Maven Embedded Plugin  Derby DB  No more web.xml – Servlet 3.0 is awesome  Getters/Setters generated – Scala’s @BeanProperty annotation37 Copyright © 2012, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved.
    • No more web.xml Servlet 3 and Scala package code.webapp import javax.servlet.annotation.{ WebFilter, WebInitParam } import org.apache.wicket.protocol.http.WicketFilter @WebFilter(value = Array("/*"), initParams = Array( new WebInitParam(name="applicationClassName", value="code.webapp.Application"), new WebInitParam(name="filterMappingUrlPattern", value = "/*“) )) class GamboaApplication extends WicketFilter38 Copyright © 2012, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved.
    • Getters/Setters generated Scala’s @BeanProperty annotation package code.data import scala.reflect.BeanProperty import javax.persistence.{ Id, GeneratedValue } trait Identifiable extends Serializable { @Id @GeneratedValue @BeanProperty var id: String = _ }39 Copyright © 2012, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved.
    • Getters/Setters generated Scala’s @BeanProperty annotation package code.data import scala.reflect.BeanProperty import javax.persistence.{ Entity, Table } @Entity @Table(name = “USERS”) class User extends Identifiable { @BeanProperty var name: String = _ @BeanProperty var email: String = _ }40 Copyright © 2012, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved.
    • Gamboa Project Great architecture, written an archetype must be! Apache Wicket + Java EE 6 + Scala Gamboa Project www.gamboa-project.org41 Copyright © 2012, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved.
    • Gamboa Project Maven archetypes  Scala DSL for Wicket  3 archetypes – Java EE archetype  JPA, CDI, EJB3, GlassFish Maven Plugin integrated – Spring with CouchDB – Spring with MongoDB  Both integrated with Jetty plugin  Directory structure simplified for Web development – Not really “Maven convention”, for good reason42 Copyright © 2012, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved.
    • Gamboa Project Directory Structure: simplified for Web development myproject $> tree |-- src --> .scala files | `-- code | |-- web | |-- services | `-- email |-- config --> configuration files | `-- email |-- layout --> .html files and presentation | |-- css | `-- js | `-- libs `-- pom.xml43 Copyright © 2012, Oracle and/or its affiliates.
