  • Announcing new extension CedThumbnails 2.5.0 for Joomla 1.7/2.5

    In order to regain control of development, avoid code duplications, easing installations, I have decided to group all these extensions Into one single component CedThumbnails.

    This new component will be delivered shortly! You are advised to update to Joomla 1.7 and soon 2.5 if you are still using Joomla 1.5. A version for Joomla 1.5 may be done later this week.

    Module Latest article with thumbnails (mod_articles_latest_thumb)

    This is a drop in replacement for the Joomla! core module "Latest Articles", it offer the same level of features but also add thumbnails.

    Module Popular articles with thumbnails (mod_articles_popular_thumb)

    This is a drop in replacement for the Joomla! core module "Popular Articles", it offer the same level of features but also add thumbnails.

    Module Related articles with thumbnails (mod_related_items_thumb)

    This is a drop in replacement for the Joomla! core module "Related Articles", it offer the same level of features but also add thumbnails.
    This Module displays other Articles that are related to the one currently being viewed. These relations are established by the Meta Keywords.
    All the keywords of the current Article are searched against all the keywords of all other published Articles. For example, you may have an Article on "Breeding Parrots" and another on "Hand Raising Black Cockatoos". If you include the keyword "parrot" in both Articles, then the Related Items Module will list the "Breeding Parrots" Article when viewing "Hand Raising Black Cockatoos" and vice-versa.

    Plugin Related articles with thumbnails (plg_content_relatedthumbarticles)

    This plugin displays other Articles that are related to the one currently being viewed. These relations are established by the Meta Keywords or using Joomla categories.
    All the keywords of the current Article are searched against all the keywords of all other published Articles. For example, you may have an Article on "Breeding Parrots" and another on "Hand Raising Black Cockatoos". If you include the keyword "parrot" in both Articles, then the Related Items Module will list the "Breeding Parrots" Article when viewing "Hand Raising Black Cockatoos" and vice-versa.

    Library WideImage (lib_wideimage)

    Is a famous PHP library for manipulating images. WideImage is a lot better than TimThumb for that job,.

    Note that Joomla 2.5  though JImage support images manipulations, this new extension will let you the choice to use JImage or WideImage. It support both!
    Attention JImage do not support manipulation of remote file. If your articles, in introtext or fulltext,  have images not located on your Joomla host, it will be better to use WideImage.

    * -> Security Fix
    # -> Bug Fix
    + -> Addition
    ^ -> Change
    - -> Removed
    ! –> Note

    - Remove support for TimThumb,
    + Support for Joomla 2.5 JImage class.
    + Caching of thumbnails is done per extension, and the same image can be displayed on different size in the module or plugin
    + assembly one component to install to install 3 modules, 1 plugin and 1 library
    ^ avoid code duplications, same code for all extensions
    + ability to locate picture for thumbnails is more flexible

    I am currently making the changes at Joomla Extensions Directory , the version for Joomla 1.6, 1.7 and 2.5 is ready!

  • Apache Maven BEA Weblogic 10.3 remote deployment

     apache_maven

    In this small post I will show you how to deploy automatically some artifacts of your build into bea_logo1Weblogic 10.3 by using the weblogic-maven-plugin

    This plugin will support various tasks within the Weblogic 8.1 and 9.x environment. Such tasks as deploy, undeploy,clientgen,servicegen, and appc are supported as well as many others. The plugin uses exposed API's that are subject to change but have been tested in 8.1 SP 4-6 and 9.0 - 9.2 MP3. There are two versions of the plugin to support the two environments based on differences in the JDK. The 9.x version is currently being refactored to support the standard JSR supported deployment interface

  • Apache Maven copy local file to a remote server server using SSH

    I will show you in an Apache Maven configuration file how to copy files to server each time the package phase is executed.

    Solution with Ant SCP task

    This snippet of code is a ready to use code that make use of Apache Ant task scp, Just put this snippet of code in your Maven module where the assembly is executed or anywhere else to push all tar.gz files to a server just run a maven mvn package, you can add as many ant task and push to many server the same file during the reactor build.

  • Auto completion of Icesoft Icefaces tags in eclipse Helios

    iceSoft

    ICEsoft Technologies, Inc., is a leading provider of standards-compliant, Ajax-based solutions for developing and deploying Java EE, rich Internet applications. ICEfaces is a leading open source Ajax framework for Java EE.

    I search a lot in forums for resolving this small inconvenience in eclipse Helios. The solution is easier as you think:

    Are you using some custom file extensions?

    Name your facelets templates *.jspx if you are using any other extension, Eclipse JSP editor wont be used and you may have limited auto completion support.

    if you still want to use *.xhtml, .iface

    1. Go to Windows – Preferences – General – Content Types –  Text - JSP – and add your extensions
    2. into 'File Associations' and made the 'JSP editor' the default for .xhtml

    Auto completion for facelets, html and core components

    Use Jboss Tools which has enables content assist for f: ui: s: h:

    To install JBoss Tools, start up Eclipse 3.6 then:

    Help > Install New Software... >
    and add this URL:http://download.jboss.org/jbosstools/updates/development/

    Locate your project in eclipse, right click, select configure and choose “Add JSF capabilities” as seen in the picture below

    autocompletionEclipseIcefaces01

    Now open any files with the HTML editor/JSP editor, in fact it will work now with any editors and for all tags

    autocompletionEclipseIcefaces02

    Another solution

    You do not need to install Jboss Tools (I recommend it through) but what about Icefaces support?

    Icefaces provide a plugin 3.5.0 that support auto completion of tags in Eclipse Galileo (3.5) for icefaces 1.8.2.  While Eclipse Helios is only supported with icefaces 2.0 (plugin > 3.6.2)

  • Auto deployment of Maven artifacts to Oracle Weblogic

    apache_maven

    I found  this time a  new way to deploy Maven artefacts using the Oracle Weblogic Ant API!

    If you remember my previous post, there is many ways to deploy your war/ear to Oracle Weblogic

    1. Using Oracle Weblogic development mode, a mode in which a simple copy of your files in a specific autodeploy directory trigger the update/install of these
    2. Using Maven Cargo, this work only if your Oracle Weblogic container is local (see here) on the same machine, where Apache Maven is running
    3. Using a very old Maven plugin (2008), local and remote container are supported, but our builds were sometimes hanging during pre integration phase for no apparent reasons.

    And now using the official ANT API of Oracle, by far the MOST stable of all!
