JRower is a tool for loading relational database tables from flat files. It is useful in situations where your database table undergoes periodic refreshes from an Excel spread sheet or other data file. You supply a XML file describing the fields in the file and their mapping to the database table columns and JRower performs the load. The data file can be a text file in CSV, delimited, fixed length, or Excel format. The XML file can also specify validations that the input data must pass before it is inserted to the database. A command line tool for running JRower is provided and also a Servlet for running JRower from a web page. JRower can also be embedded in your own Java program. Currently only Oracle is supported.
JGUP is a code generation tool for getting a head start on a new
J2EE web application project. You supply a XML file describing the web
application and JGup outputs a project source tree.
JGup is not a full circle
development tool; you run it only once and then customize the code
The source tree includes:
The framework of the web application includes support for logging and configuration. An "application console" Servlet allows you to view the logs and set the configuration parameters. Currently JGUP only supports WebLogic, Oracle, and Sun's java.util.logging.See the JGup documentation.
