Tables typically present a lot of information in a compact space, making user overload a expot worthy of attention.
Alternatively just tell us what you think! Join me in exploring JMesa! But it’s the page we need.
There will be edit and delete pages to link to, of course, but these are not of exprot here and are completely trivial in the Eclipse project. Insight Into a Hybrid Approach. Installing the Eclipse jjesa is not difficult; the included Ant build file and these instructions assume Tomcat expoort the deployment target I’m using version 6. Since this is functionality I use a lot, let’s design it for reuse, refactoring out reusable code into one class, and code tailored to this project into another.
The Decorator and Template patterns, however, come to the rescue. What you will find here is a carefully thought out API that is very easy to use and can be modified jemsa your own needs. To demonstrate, we’ll use the select at the top of the form to change the exporh of rows displayed to 16, sort by first name ascending and last name descending by clicking on the first column header once and the second twiceand mouse over the third row to see the highlighting: Advanced Linux Commands [Cheat Sheet].
Normally, we’d get them from a persistence service; for hmesa, we’ll just create them in memory:. The key is in the variable resultswhich now holds the entire text of the table generated by the JMesa TableFacade when we called its render method.
The WebContext provides us with the servlet context path, again letting us avoid hard-coding the image URL: But it would be awfully nice if the images could be centered within the column, something notoriously difficult to achieve with CSS style sheets.
This “domain” object should be pretty easy to display: You will have noticed the images in the table toolbar. JMesa is a dynamic HTML table that allows you to filter, sort, paginate, export and edit your data however you need to.
I also released an updated war file as well. And we didn’t have to do a thing!

When this attribute is set, JMesa uses the Memento design pattern to save the state of its tables.
Normally, we’d get them from a persistence service; for now, we’ll just create them in memory: Making a column eport, we need to have expoft HtmlColumn, but most columns qualify unsortable is very simple: I’m going to share with you some of the things I’ve found in JMesa, building up an HTML page containing a table from nothing to, well, considerably more than nothing.
Opinions expressed by DZone contributors are their own. The application-specific concrete class, after all this, can be pretty simple:. I can program them in Java and not worry about them on a display JSP. TableFacade is going to send itself messages passed as parameters in the request more on this in a moment.
Getting back to the two image columns, we have a requirement to pass the Pk property of the appropriate HelloWorld to the edit or delete pages jmesz the images are clicked.
In fact, we’ll learn even more if we put this page in a context. To see the live examples just download the example war file and place it in your servlet container. The select we’ve already mentioned. Let’s start with something extremely simple.
I won’t bother with package declarations, imports, or code not relevant to the point at hand; the complete code is available for download in the form of an Eclipse project. A hands-on introduction to frameworks and containers.
If you would like the JMesa jar file in the Maven repositories I have decided to leave it up to the community to finish the work started.
It contains a preference expoet “html.
