Vroom Plugin 2.0.1 - plugin detail

In this 2 in 1 plugin, I've packaged Vroom Web Framework version 2.3.0 as well as Vroom Request Dispatcher (VRD). VRD is a small Java API for web applications which is used URL mapping to other valid URLs or java methods. VRD makes it possible to eliminate the need of traditional java servlets and introduce a mechanism to expose any valid java method as service. Using VRD you can also use Groovy, JRuby, Jython and JavaScript scripting languages to write servlets. For details visit http://vroom-vrd.blogspot.com Vroom Request Dispatcher is independent of Vroom Web Framework. VRD is more focused towards server side control where as Vroom Web Framework works on client side. Both the frameworks can work alone or in combination of any other web frameworks. It's fun to write Groovy servlets using VRD (I like the MarkupBuilder). Read the comments in vrd-config.xml file which appears under WEB-INF folder once Vroom Request Dispatcher is added to any web application. Note: Add Groovy library from the libraries to the project to write servlets using Groovy. For JRuby, you need to locate jruby.jar file available in NetBeans libraries and add the jar to the project. For Jython, you need jython.jar (which should also be available if Python plugin is installed). For JavaScipt you need Rhino JavaScript library. All the library paths are available on the project homepage http://vroom-request-dispatcher.googlecode.com. Use the plugin and enjoy coding.

What's new in this version

This plugin adds Vroom Web Framework and Vroom Request Dispatcher under Web Frameworks, Vroom-2.3.0 and VRD-1.0.1 under Libraries and add Vroom Category under New Files for groovy, jruby, jython and javascript servlets. Jython servlets can access python scripts packaged with the application or available on ClassPath. The libraries are working fine on both J2EE 1.4 and Java EE 5. (In previous version the VRD library was not working for J2EE 1.4 compliant application).

Introduction

VRD Introduction using NetBeans IDE 6.5 - Part 1

In this video I've demonstrated the request mapping to forward or redirect to other urls.

VRD Introduction using NetBeans IDE 6.5 - Part 2

In this video I've demonstrated the request mapping to invoke java methods. You can invoke all those java methods which satisfy following requirements:

  • The class must be accessible
  • If the method is non-static, the class must have a no-arg constructor
  • The method must following one of the following signatures:
    public (static) [void|Object] methodName();
    public (static) [void|Object] methodName(HttpServletRequest);
    public (static) [void|Object] methodName(HttpServletRequest, HttpServletResponse);
