Build Web Applications with Java

Build Web Applications with JavaThis book is primarily intended for beginners who wants to learn various aspects of software engineering and building web applications using Java programming language.

There are many good books available in the market which independently teach Java, Web Servers, MVC based Frameworks, JSP, PL/SQL, AJAX, JavaScript, CSS, HTML5, UML, SDLC etc. This book covers all of these things plus other aspects together while building an actual web application from inception till completion. This books takes a sample web application and builds it from scratch. Each aspect is explained at micro level with real time examples along with the uml diagrams and code. The fundamental concepts of software engineering and programming web applications are covered with high importance.

The objective of this book is to teach building modern day business web applications using java and other related technologies. This book teaches everything in details and in simpler way about building web applications with medium to high level of complexity. This book also covers various software engineering concepts that are required for building software solutions.

The book takes you through each and every step of building a web application from scratch. The objective is to teach the reader every single aspect of software engineering required for building web applications from inception till deployment and support. In order to achieve the objective, a real life business requirement is taken and the sample project is built step by step from requirements gathering till deployment and support.

The book includes building a light weight MVC based Java framework and building the sample web application using it. During the course architecture, SDLC, UML, security, ajax, various patterns, best practices and other related topics are explained.

The best way to learn anything is to get the hands dirty. When a developer starts building any software solution, he/she gets lots of doubts and questions while actually doing it. When the reader architects, designs and does the coding hands on, the reader learns every aspect practically. When the reader builds the working application step by step, the confidence of the reader as a developer is boosted.

Web resources for Microsoft Dynamics CRM

Web resources are virtual files that are stored in the Microsoft Dynamics CRM database and that you can retrieve by using a unique URL address.

Capabilities of web resources

Web resources represent files that can be used to extend the Microsoft Dynamics CRM web application such as html files, JavaScript, and Silverlight applications. You can use web resources in form customizations, the SiteMap, or the application ribbon because they can be referenced by using URL syntax.

The URL syntax for web resources allows for relative path references. With your development tools, you can create a group of interdependent files on a development server by using file types compatible with web resources. Then, if you use a consistent naming convention and relative path references, the website will function after you upload all the files into Microsoft Dynamics CRM.

Because web resources are stored in Microsoft Dynamics CRM and are solution components, they can be easily exported and installed to on-premises deployments of Microsoft Dynamics CRM or to Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online. Web resources are also available to users of Microsoft Dynamics CRM for Microsoft Office Outlook with Offline Access when offline because they are synchronized with the user’s data.

You can use the form editor to add and configure form-enabled web resources into your entity forms.

Because web resources are stored as records in the database, they can be managed programmatically by using the standard techniques to create, retrieve, and update records. Text-based web resources (JScript, CSS, XML, XSL, and HTML) can be edited and saved in the application.
Limitations of web resources

There is no type of web resource that supports the capabilities of an ASP.NET (.aspx) page to execute code on the server. Web resources are limited to static files or files that are processed in the browser. A web resource can contain code that is processed in the browser to execute web service calls to interact with Microsoft Dynamics CRM data. For more information, see Work with CRM data using web resources,

Web resources are only available by using the Microsoft Dynamics CRM web application security context. Only licensed Microsoft Dynamics CRM users who have the necessary privileges can access them.
Size limitations

The maximum size of files that can be uploaded is determined by the Organization.MaxUploadFileSize property. This property is set in the Email tab of the System Settings in the CRM application. This setting limits the size of files that can be attached to email messages, notes, and web resources. The default setting is 5 MB.
