|Build an Ajax application using Google Web Toolkit, Apache Derby, and Eclipse, Part 4: Deployment
In the past three articles in this series, you've built a simple but functional Web application using the Google Web Toolkit (GWT). Until now, you've been editing and debugging the application using GWT's hosted mode, which allows you to simulate a Web server environment within your Java development tool. Sadly, it's impractical to have all your users download Eclipse just to run your Web application. So, in this article, the fourth in this series, you'll learn how to deploy your GWT application within a Java Web application server and get tips on using the Apache Derby database to drive the GWT.

|Build an Ajax application using Google Web Toolkit, Apache Derby, and Eclipse, Part 3: Communication
In the last two articles in this series, you've discovered how to create a simple Web application using the Google Web Toolkit (GWT) and the Apache Derby relational database. Part 1 focused on using GWT to build the front end for a pizza delivery system called Slicr. In Part 2, you got a demonstration of the creation of a relational database using Derby, and a bare-bones demonstration of a mechanism for converting the database rows to Java objects. Now it gets interesting! In this third article, find out how to get the client and server talking to each other. You'll use the Remote Procedure Call (RPC) framework within GWT to make getting data off the server almost as simple as making a Java method call.

|Real-world Apache Derby, Part 3: Portable document storage
Document storage is hot, hot, hot! There has been an explosion of methodologies and tool sets -- both open source and proprietary -- to fulfill the demand for quickly locating and searching documents. Enabling technologies like Alfresco, Sharepoint, or my favorite, TWiki, are powerful, but they have a fairly high learning curve -- or worse, store the documents in a proprietary format. There must be an easier way. Let's take Derby and mash it with a new feature in OpenOffice 2.0, the Open Document Format (ODF). Using these tools, you can create a repository that lets you store, search, and extract ODF documents in a standards-based manner. Also learn to use the power of the improved XML features of IBM DB2, Version 9 to make this solution easier to implement.

|Use Derby in a J2EE Server environment
IBM Cloudscape is a freely available repackaging of the Apache Derby relational database manager. J2EE Servers are middle-ware software based on Sun's Java Enterprise Edition (J2EE) specification that bundle a number of Java Service technologies into an integrated system. Most J2EE applications require that a JDBC-compliant database be integrated with the Server to store information. This article shows how to best fit Cloudscape or Derby into a J2EE environment and has been updated to feature WebSphere Application Server Community Edition as an example.

|Derby database development with Apache Ant
The open source Derby database engine provides developers with a powerful new tool for lightweight database development. Derby databases are file system based and portable across different types of systems. Because of this, a common strategy is to create databases at development time and ship them with the binary distribution as opposed to having it created on the fly. In this article, author James Snell introduces a handful of Apache Ant tasks that make it easier to incorporate the building and distribution of Derby databases into an application’s build process.
