Client Session

The client session is the main entry point for client-server communication.

Desktop

The desktop is the entry point of every Scout client application. It can (may) consist of top-level menus, active message box stack, set of available outline, active outline, active tableview, active detail form, active search form, form stack (swing: dialogs on desktop as JInternalFrames; eclipse: editors or views), dialog stack of modal and non-modal dialogs (swing: dialogs as JDialog, JFrame; eclipse: dialogs in a new Shell).

Outline

Typically a Desktop holds multiple outlines. They represent different entry points for the navigation within the application. For every outline a tree is available which allows navigating within the application.

Form

A form is both a model structure of a ui concept known as dialog or view and also a model of a wizard page. Wizard buttons are added automatically to the main box if missing.

Form fields

Form fields are the basic elements for user inputs fiels within a form. Examples are:

  • TextField
  • SmartField
  • NumberField
  • DateField
  • FileChooser
  • ListBox
  • TreeBox
  • CheckBox
  • RadioButton
  • ToogleButton

Futhermore there exists composites fields like:

  • GroupBox
  • TabBox
  • SequenceBox
  • SnapBox
  • RangeBox
  • RadioButtonGroupBox

Menu

The menu component include all links, functionalities, etc... available within the application.

Tool

Tool component is used for grouping or dividing different views. This can be used for building business views on datas or just structuring your own application.

Wizard

Wizards support a user to work in a process driven approach on a task.


Server Concepts

Server Side Equinox

Jetty, ServerApplication as Startup Point

Transaction Handling

Configuration

SQL Support

Statement Builder

config.ini

Inside of the config.ini in the server it is possible to override the member variables of services.

For example:

com.bsiag.mnet.server.services.common.sql.SqlService#directJ dbcConnection=true


If the service SqlService has a setter method for the member directJdbcConnection then the member has at runtime the value true.

With Scout Eclipse this works for all classes which extends AbstractService

For other classes it must be done by yourself for example with the class FilterConfigInjection at startup.

Security

Authentication and Authorization

JAAS

Security Filters

Granting

Describe the Permisssion Classes, the permission store, ACCESS....

Utilities

Codetypes

NLS-Support

Logging

  • How is the logger configured?
  • How is the log level changed? How are exceptions for single classes defined (log level is warn, except for class XY?
  • How do I get the fired SQLs (including binds) in my log output?
  • Changing the Logger
    Change the logger to Log4j or something else.

Scout Services

Scout services.png

scout.commons

Scheduler

Client Notification

Scout SDK

Idea Behind Scout SDK

Main Features

Building Forms and Outlines

Generation of DTOs (form data, field data)

NLS Editor

Support for Webservices

Architecture of Scout SDK

Describe how JDT and PDE is used
