1 Azzyzt JEE Tools
==================

  !!! Release 1.3.2

Azzyzt JEE Tools is a collection of software tools helping software 
developers to create services using Java Enterprise Edition 6. Use it if 
you need to create database-backed Java EE services callable via 
CORBA/IIOP, SOAP or REST.

Azzyzt JEE Tools are designed to be integrated into popular Java IDEs 
and to work with Java EE runtimes starting from Java EE 6. The primary 
targets are GlassFish as Java EE server and Eclipse as IDE.

Copyright (c) 2011, Municipiality of Vienna, Austria Licensed under the 
EUPL, Version 1.1 or subsequent versions

If you're new to Azzyzt JEE Tools, a good way to get started is to work 
through the tutorial in using_azzyzt.html[1] in the source 
distribution's doc directory.

For a change log see changelog.html[2].

https://github.com/amanessinger/azzyzt_jee_tools[3].


1.1 Current status
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

As of release 1.3.2, Azzyzt JEE Tools consists of three main parts:

  1. a project generator that creates so-called azzyzted projects. An 
    azzyzted project is a collection of four projects, an Enterprise 
    Application Project (EAR project), an Enterprise Java Beans project 
    (EJB project), its client project (EJB client project) and a Dynamic 
    Web Project (servlet project). The EJB project contains all business 
    code, the servlet project contains REST wrappers around business 
    methods, the EJB client project contains all data types visible to 
    SOAP or REST clients. These three are called member projects. The 
    EAR project is a container for the member projects.

    The project generator uses a project base name, a package prefix and 
    an Eclipse runtime specification capable of supporting EJB 3.1, and 
    from that it creates the four projects. The EJB project is marked 
    with a special "azzyzted nature".
  2. an application code generator that analyzes JPA entities in 
    azzyzted projects, and uses that information to create a base 
    application. This application is a set of service beans exposed as 
    SOAP and REST services. They offer access to the database as it is 
    commonly used by CRUD applications. All generated code is in 
    dedicated source folders. The generated application can be extended 
    and the extensions may use generated code like DTOs as building 
    blocks.
  3. a runtime library of code used by generated applications.

The structure of azzyzted projects and the structure of generated code 
evolved from the work on An Eclipse / GlassFish / Java EE 6 Tutorial[4] 
and on usage of that tutorial in a subsequent internal training class 
for developers at the Municipiality of Vienna, Austria.

Although Azzyzt JEE Tools come as a set of extensions to the Eclipse 
IDE, large portions of the code are independent of Eclipse. Given a 
project structure like that created by #1, #2 could be called from any 
IDE and can even be used without an IDE, because it can be called from 
the command line.

Azzyzt JEE Tools are known to work with the runtimes of

  * GlassFish v3.01
  * GlassFish v3.1
  * GlassFish v3.1.1
  * GlassFish v3.1.2

and Eclipse versions

  * Galileo SR2
  * Helios SR1, SR2
  * Indigo
  * Indigo SR1, SR2

In the context of this documentation Eclipse is always assumed as the 
generic bundle Eclipse IDE for Java EE Developers[5]. Other 
distributions may contain the required plugins and may work, but they 
were not tested.

The plugins were compiled on Eclipse 3.7 "Indigo" SR2 using Java 
1.6.0_31, and they were tested in the following configurations:

  * Galileo SR2 + GlassFish 3.01
  * Helios SR1 + GlassFish 3.01
  * Helios SR2 + GlassFish 3.1
  * Indigo SR1 + GlassFish 3.1.1
  * Indigo SR2 + GlassFish 3.1.2

These are typical configurations of Eclipse versions together with 
versions of GlassFish, that were current at that time. They are supposed 
to be in use most often.

All tests were done with JDK 1.6.

No other application servers but GlassFish were tested. While in theory 
all servers complying to the Java EE 6 full profile should work, they 
are completely unsupported.

Future extensions may provide generators for additional patterns 
commonly used in Java EE applications.

Contributions to Azzyzt JEE Tools are welcome. Possible areas include 
support for additional Java IDEs, additional patterns, additional 
runtimes, etc. Of course bug fixes are welcome as well.

Azzyzt JEE Tools were developed by Andreas Manessinger[6] for the 
Municipal Department 14 - Automated Data Processing, Information and 
Communications Technology[7] (MA 14) of the City of Vienna, Austria

          (except as stated in this section) patent license to make, have made,
          use, offer to sell, sell, import, and otherwise transfer the Work,
          where such license applies only to those patent claims licensable
          by such Contributor that are necessarily infringed by their
          Contribution(s) alone or by combination of their Contribution(s)
          with the Work to which such Contribution(s) was submitted. If You
          institute patent litigation against any entity (including a
          cross-claim or counterclaim in a lawsuit) alleging that the Work
          or a Contribution incorporated within the Work constitutes direct
          or contributory patent infringement, then any patent licenses
          granted to You under this License for that Work shall terminate
          as of the date such litigation is filed.
    
       4. Redistribution. You may reproduce and distribute copies of the
          Work or Derivative Works thereof in any medium, with or without
          modifications, and in Source or Object form, provided that You
          meet the following conditions:
    
          (a) You must give any other recipients of the Work or
              Derivative Works a copy of this License; and
    
          (b) You must cause any modified files to carry prominent notices
              stating that You changed the files; and
    
          (c) You must retain, in the Source form of any Derivative Works
              that You distribute, all copyright, patent, trademark, and
              attribution notices from the Source form of the Work,
              excluding those notices that do not pertain to any part of
              the Derivative Works; and
    
          (d) If the Work includes a "NOTICE" text file as part of its
              distribution, then any Derivative Works that You distribute must
              include a readable copy of the attribution notices contained
              within such NOTICE file, excluding those notices that do not
              pertain to any part of the Derivative Works, in at least one
              of the following places: within a NOTICE text file distributed
              as part of the Derivative Works; within the Source form or
              documentation, if provided along with the Derivative Works; or,
              within a display generated by the Derivative Works, if and
              wherever such third-party notices normally appear. The contents
              of the NOTICE file are for informational purposes only and
              do not modify the License. You may add Your own attribution
              notices within Derivative Works that You distribute, alongside
              or as an addendum to the NOTICE text from the Work, provided
              that such additional attribution notices cannot be construed
              as modifying the License.
    
          You may add Your own copyright statement to Your modifications and
          may provide additional or different license terms and conditions
          for use, reproduction, or distribution of Your modifications, or
          for any such Derivative Works as a whole, provided Your use,
          reproduction, and distribution of the Work otherwise complies with
          the conditions stated in this License.
    
       5. Submission of Contributions. Unless You explicitly state otherwise,
          any Contribution intentionally submitted for inclusion in the Work
          by You to the Licensor shall be under the terms and conditions of
          this License, without any additional terms or conditions.
          Notwithstanding the above, nothing herein shall supersede or modify
          the terms of any separate license agreement you may have executed
          with Licensor regarding such Contributions.
    
       6. Trademarks. This License does not grant permission to use the trade
          names, trademarks, service marks, or product names of the Licensor,
          except as required for reasonable and customary use in describing the
          origin of the Work and reproducing the content of the NOTICE file.
    
       7. Disclaimer of Warranty. Unless required by applicable law or
          agreed to in writing, Licensor provides the Work (and each
          Contributor provides its Contributions) on an "AS IS" BASIS,
          WITHOUT WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS OF ANY KIND, either express or
          implied, including, without limitation, any warranties or conditions
          of TITLE, NON-INFRINGEMENT, MERCHANTABILITY, or FITNESS FOR A
          PARTICULAR PURPOSE. You are solely responsible for determining the
          appropriateness of using or redistributing the Work and assume any
          risks associated with Your exercise of permissions under this License.
    
       8. Limitation of Liability. In no event and under no legal theory,
          whether in tort (including negligence), contract, or otherwise,
          unless required by applicable law (such as deliberate and grossly
          negligent acts) or agreed to in writing, shall any Contributor be
          liable to You for damages, including any direct, indirect, special,
          incidental, or consequential damages of any character arising as a
          result of this License or out of the use or inability to use the
          Work (including but not limited to damages for loss of goodwill,
          work stoppage, computer failure or malfunction, or any and all
          other commercial damages or losses), even if such Contributor
          has been advised of the possibility of such damages.
    
       9. Accepting Warranty or Additional Liability. While redistributing
          the Work or Derivative Works thereof, You may choose to offer,
          and charge a fee for, acceptance of support, warranty, indemnity,
          or other liability obligations and/or rights consistent with this
          License. However, in accepting such obligations, You may act only
          on Your own behalf and on Your sole responsibility, not on behalf
          of any other Contributor, and only if You agree to indemnify,
          defend, and hold each Contributor harmless for any liability
          incurred by, or claims asserted against, such Contributor by reason
          of your accepting any such warranty or additional liability.
    
       END OF TERMS AND CONDITIONS
    
       APPENDIX: How to apply the Apache License to your work.
    
          To apply the Apache License to your work, attach the following
          boilerplate notice, with the fields enclosed by brackets "[]"
          replaced with your own identifying information. (Don't include
          the brackets!)  The text should be enclosed in the appropriate
          comment syntax for the file format. We also recommend that a
          file or class name and description of purpose be included on the
          same "printed page" as the copyright notice for easier
          identification within third-party archives.
