Bear,

"jQuery in Action"

This book gives a very good overview of jQuery. I was hoping you could point me to a book that has more in-depth examples of the components such as the various UI components.

Thank you again,
Greg
I've been doing web dev with JSPs for about a year now on a project that was already mature. It doesn't use any framework at all so I don't have any experience using frameworks. Would you suggest this book for someone in my situation and if so how could it help me?

Thanks in advance.
Thanks Lynn, that is exactly what I was hoping for! We use a couple of different DB's here so a more generic SQL book is perfect!

And thanks Dave for fixing my title, I should have known better.

--Greg
From reading other posts, the book is based on MySQL, but will it be of any use to someone that is using another DB like Oracle?

Will it point out the differences between what is MySQL specific and general SQL?

Thanks, I plan on getting this book next week!

Michael, what is the more typical style for Swing then, in you experience? I'm new to swing so I'm just trying to get it right!

Thanks

I was under the same impression but the example in the HF Java book does otherwise. It uses named inner classes for the listeners and a named inner class for the Runnable. Using named inner classes versus anonymous inner classes may not be that big of a deal.

I was just looking to see if this was a normal example or a anomaly.

Thanks

HF Java 2nd edition by Kathy Sierra and Bert Bates has a BeatBox client program in it that uses a lot of inner classes. I'm a novice so I was hoping Bert or someone else could explain if it's normal to have that many inner classes, even in a GUI class?

All but one of them are listeners so I know it makes sense for them to be classes but could you have them as their own class rather then an inner class? Same for the Runnable inner class, couldn't that be it's own class?

I guess I'm just confused because up to this point everything I've read has told me that a class should do one thing and one thing well and that is it. But now I'm getting into Threads and GUIs and it appears that one class is doing many things.

Thanks in advance,
Greg

We have text data that has new line characters in it and when we transform it using our XSL the new lines preserved. So I was hoping to be able to replace the new line characters with the <br> tag.

XPath has a function, replace(string,pattern,replace). However, I can't get it to work with the <br> tag.

Does anyone have a better solution or know how I can get this one to work?



Thanks
It's not that we are having problems with cross browser dependences but rather with the data that goes into the tables. Our customer changes things like column headings and validation rules. This causes us pain when the table does not respond very well. Most of the problem is our own. I'm new to the team and there are a ten developers and I think the pages have gone through a lot of flux so they are not developed with a single theme in mind.

I've seen things about developing pages without using tables as the layout mechanism. I though if it was a good way to go I could get the team to buy into it and then in the process get all the pages to meet one set layout. Based on what you said we may just have to look at establishing our own standard and refactor to that standard.

Thanks again,
Greg
Frank,

Once again we had issues with our pages today. This time it was our tables. We seem to have this problem a lot. I checked Google and found some promising sites but I wanted to know if your book goes into things like building pages without troublesome tables?

Thanks
There must be some kind of trick with Tomcat 6.0! I uninstalled 6.0 and installed 5.5 and copyed over the same directory structure and files and it works fine.

If anyone knows what the trick is for 6.0 I would appreciate it.

Thanks

The URL is: http://localhost:8080/Beer-v1/form.html

The dir stgructure is: C:\Tomcat 6.0\apache-tomcat-6.0.10\webapps\Beer-v1

BTW, this is an example from the Head First Servlet and JSP

Thanks

So for the sort term Web developers are stuck in the middle checking their apps against multiple browsers. Then going back and tweaking things one at a time!

It's good to be a web developer...
BTW, I'm using Tomcat 6.0.

Thanks again.

I'm having problems getting a very simple app (html form) to deploy to tomcat. I'm using the "copy directory structure" method.

I have a dir called webApp and under that I have the html form (form.html) and the WEB-INF dir. The WEB-INF dir has the classes, lib and web.xml. That's all very simple. I just want Tomcat to display the html form at first. Once I get that working I can start adding on but for now I can't even do that!

The Tomcat documentation said that the copy method works but you have to stop and start Tomcat for it to pick it up. I've done that too and still nothing. What am I doing wrong?

Thanks in advance for any help!!
