Guessing Game Implementation using JSF

 In a typical Java Server Faces application each page connect to a managed bean, that have properties and methods that are associated with the components. This Guessing Game application consists of one managed bean and two views. All views are using same bean.
 The following are requirements for this application.
1. User must enter a number from 0 to 10.
2. Maximum number of attempt is 5.
3. If user guess a correct number with in 5 attempts, the success message is displayed to the user otherwise the failure message is displayed.
 Ok let's create a managed bean for implementing above requirements.
package com.pointerunits;

import java.io.IOException;
import java.util.Random;
import javax.faces.bean.ManagedBean;
import javax.faces.bean.SessionScoped;
import javax.faces.context.FacesContext;

@ManagedBean
@SessionScoped

public class GuessingGame {
 private int randomNumber;
 private int userNumber;
 private int minimum;
 private int maximum;
 private int allowableAttempts;
 private int userAttempts;
 private String message;
 public GuessingGame() {
  this.minimum = 0;
  this.maximum =10;
  this.allowableAttempts = 5; 
  this.initializeGame();
 }
 private void initializeGame() {
  Random randomGR = new Random();
  this.randomNumber = new Integer(randomGR.nextInt(this.maximum));
  System.out.println("Random number : " + this.randomNumber);
  this.userAttempts = 0;
  this.userNumber = 0;
  this.message = "";
 }
 public int getRandomNumber() {
  return randomNumber;
 }
 public void setRandomNumber(int randomNumber) {
  this.randomNumber = randomNumber;
 }
 public int getUserNumber() {
  return userNumber;
 }
 public void setUserNumber(int userNumber) {
  this.userNumber = userNumber;
 }
 public int getMinimum() {
  return minimum;
 }
 public void setMinimum(int minimum) {
  this.minimum = minimum;
 }
 public int getMaximum() {
  return maximum;
 }
 public void setMaximum(int maximum) {
  this.maximum = maximum;
 }
 public int getAllowableAttempts() {
  return allowableAttempts;
 }
 public void setAllowableAttempts(int allowableAttempts) {
  this.allowableAttempts = allowableAttempts;
 }
 public int getUserAttempts() {
  return userAttempts;
 }
 public void setUserAttempts(int userAttempts) {
  this.userAttempts = userAttempts;
 }
 public String getMessage() {
  return message;
 }
 public void setMessage(String message) {
  this.message = message;
 }
 public void playGame() throws IOException {
  this.userAttempts++;
  boolean isRedirect = false;
  if(this.userNumber == this.randomNumber) {
   this.message = "Hey..you got it. Total attempt is " + this.userAttempts ;
   isRedirect = true;
  }
  else if(this.userNumber > this.randomNumber){
   this.message = "Hey I am lesser than your guess";
  }
  else if(this.userNumber < this.randomNumber) {
   this.message = "Hey I am greater than your guess";
  }
  if(this.userAttempts == this.allowableAttempts) {
   this.message = "Hey..you have failed to guess.";
   isRedirect = true;
  }
  if(isRedirect) {
   FacesContext.getCurrentInstance().getExternalContext().redirect("guessingGameResponse.xhtml");
  }
 }
 
 public void resetGame() throws IOException {
  initializeGame();
  FacesContext.getCurrentInstance().getExternalContext().redirect("guessingGame.xhtml");
 }
}
 Here the redirect() method is used for redirecting to result page. Instead of you can use JSF navigation rule for redirection. The following facelet page is used for getting user input.

 Guessing Game


 
  

Hi, I am thinking of a number from #{guessingGame.minimum} to #{guessingGame.maximum}. Can you guess it?

 The following facelet page is used for displaying result.

Do you want to play a game once again?

 You can download an entire application from GitHub.

Ext JS 4 – Creating web page using Ext.container.Viewport class and region propery

The Ext.container.Viewport is used for creating general web page and region property is used for splitting web page into different parts. Ext.container.Viewport is a specialized container represents the viewable area of the application (the browser area). It render itself to the document body, there is no need for providing renderTo property and it automatically sizes itself to size of the browser viewport. The viewport also re-size the child elements based on view area(based on browser width and height). The default layout of the viewport is border layout and we can customize this property according to our requirements. The viewport does not provide any scrolling. If necessary, the child elements(generally panels) within viewport needs to provide a scroll feature by using autoScroll property. See the below example for better understanding. This is Home.js file placed into app/view folder. Ext.define('MyApp.view.Home', { extend : 'Ext.container.Viewport&#

Getting key/value pair from JSON object and getting variable name and value from JavaScript object.

 Hi, I had faced one issue like this. I have an JSON object but I don't know any key name but I need to get the all the key and corresponding value from JSON object using client side JavaScript. Suddenly I wondered whether it's possible or not, after that I had done lot of workaround and finally got this solution. See the below example.    function getKeyValueFromJSON() {     var jsonObj =  {a:10,b:20,c:30,d:50} ;     for ( var key in jsonObj) {       alert( "Key: " + key + " value: " + jsonObj[key]);     }  }  In this example I have created the one json array as string, and converted this string into JSON object using eval() function. Using for-each loop I got all the key value from jsonObj, and finally using that key I got the corresponding value.  Finally I got the alert like this,    Key: a value:10    Key: b value:20    Key: c value:30    Key: d value:50  During this workaround I got one more idea, using this same way I got

Simple Login Application Using Spring MVC and Hibernate – Part 1

 I hope developers working in web application development might hear about MVC architecture. Almost all technologies provide support for MVC based web application development, but the success is based on many factors like reusable of the code, maintenance of the code, future adaption of the code, etc..,  The success of the Spring MVC is “ Open for extension and closed for modification ” principle. Using Spring MVC the developers can easily develop MVC based web application. We don’t need any steep learning curve at the same time we need to know the basics of spring framework and MVC architecture. The Spring MVC consists of following important components. 1. Dispatcher servlet 2. Controller 3. View Resolver 4. Model Spring MVC - Overview  The overall architecture of Spring MVC is shown here.  1. When “Dispatcher Servlet” gets any request from client, it finds the corresponding mapped controller for the request and just dispatches the request to the corresponding contro
