Database access is often a key element for many applications. Our user assistance team created a tutorial for EGL CE users, Database Access with EGL Rich UI
, to show how to get data from a database and display it using a Rich UI widget like Grid. There are many great lessons in the tutorial including creating a connection to a database like MySQL, creating a Grid and loading initial data as well as adding, editing and deleting data, and testing then deploying the application to a Tomcat application server. There's even some extra credit lessons to display data in a pie chart and to create a SOAP Web service so the database access functions can be used by other Rich UI handlers or applications.
We hope to add more tutorials to get people going quickly with EGL CE. Let us know what tutorials or samples that you think would be helpful. Just sign in and add a comment to this post!
