DELI Delivery Context Library

Send all support requests to markhenrybutler@gmail.com

For additional information see http://delicon.sourceforge.net/

=============================

PRE-REQUISITES

To use DELI, you need a Java JDK and Apache Maven.

=============================

INSTALLING DELI

  1. First you need to build DELI type

    mvn install

Then there are various things you can do with DELI:

  1. To validate all UAProf profiles in profiles.xml with a direct connection to the internet type

    java -cp target/deli-1.0.jar com.hp.hpl.deli.UAProfValidator

  2. To validate all UAProf profiles in profiles.xml behind a firewall type

    java -cp target/deli-1.0.jar com.hp.hpl.deli.UAProfValidator -Dhttp.proxyHost=your proxy host -Dhttp.proxyPort=your proxy port

  3. To validate a UAProf profile type

    java -cp target/deli-1.0.jar com.hp.hpl.deli.UAProfValidator -Dprofile=your profile

  4. To run the DELI hello world application build DELI, copy ccpp.war to the webapps directory of your app server, and see your app server documentation about how to deploy a web app. On Tomcat, the web app will deploy automatically. Assuming your app server works on port 8088, to see the hello world page point your web browser at

    http://localhost:8088/ccpp/index.html

=================================================

IMPORTANT

To get DELI to run on Tomcat 4.1 or Tomcat 5, you may need to copy deli/lib/xercesImpl.jar, xml-apis.jar and xmlParserAPIs.jar to tomcat/common/endorsed to avoid mismatching versions of Xerces.

***** Using the UAProf validator *****

The UAProf validator is part of the DELI distribution; the class providing this functionality is com.hp.hpl.deli.UAProfValidator. The easiest way to use it is to use the command line interface which can be executed as:

java -cp target/deli-1.0.jar com.hp.hpl.deli.UAProfValidator [list of profiles to validate]

If you need to use the API, it is documented in the DELI documentation, however a short example is given here:

Workspace.getInstance().configure(null, "config/deliConfig.xml");
UAProfValidator validator = new UAProfValidator(System.out);
validator.setDefaultDatatypes();

String profileName = ...

if(validator.validate(profileName)) {
    System.out.println("Profile is valid\n");
} else {
    System.out.println("Profile is not valid\n");
}

The first line is required to instruct DELI to load the required vocabulary information. The validator object is created, specifying the System.out stream as the stream to write status messages to. The validator is then instructed to use the default UAProf datatypes; if required an alternative set of datatypes can be loaded from a configuration file. The format of this file is as follows:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<validator>
  <datatype>
    <name>Literal</name>
    <expression>[A-Za-z0-9/.\\-_ ]+</expression>
  </datatype>
  <datatype>
    <name>Dimension</name>
    <expression>[0-9]+x[0-9]+</expression>
  </datatype>
  ...
  ...
</validator>

Further datatypes can be added by including more elements containing a name and regular expression for the new type.
