This project tries to add new functionality to Echo or Echo point by developing a set of components that are linked to the database. They are transparently populated , saved and updated from/into the database.
2. Data Persistence
In order to make the database access as simple as possible, I have created an API for accessing data in the database as simple as possible. This API is composed of:
PersistenceService - an interface used as a service for creating, updating , querying data from the the database and PersistenceServiceFactory - a factory for PersistenceService instances so that the implementation is transparent to the user.
A summary of PersistenceService whould be:
create(Object object, Class objectClass);
The only implementation that is provided is using JDO (Java Data Objects). Of course this can be extended and implemented using JDBC, EJB or other persistence frameworks. This implementation is made in Cocoon.Persistence.impl package that contains a query handler as well QueryHandler.
3. UI Components
Using this persistence framework, me and Sanci , have developed a few components that are directly liked to the database, such as:
DataTable - a table that is being populated directly from the database, and can be updated to the database.
DataTree - a tree that is being populated directly from the database.
DataPane - a for implemetation that can be used to create or update objects in the database in a transparent manner.
