Java : Word2HTML

Hi all,

Just wondering if anyone knows of any Java code that can automatically convert Word documents into readable HTML, like groupwise does? Just might have some influence on the portal, tis all…

Thanks in advance!

Front end integration

Writing about web page http://blogs.warwick.ac.uk/paulstacey

Having discussed front and back end integration with Paul today, the following points arose:

  • Coffee is good
  • Work is bad
  • The use of the MVC and JSP format will allow a high level of abstraction between the front and back end
  • This will, in turn, allow development of the back end without too much impact on the front end
  • However, the front end research will have some bearing of the code design & output, so any code design must be expandable and changeable
  • Hopefully this will be done through the use of the beans anyway!

Any coments on any analysis thoroughly appreciated.

Timetable
Roughly still on schedule with each other – no major changes. Parallel working will occur the start of the new term.

JSP – Site Structure

Hi all,

Just wondered what people might suggest for a JSP style site structure? I'm fairly new to JSP, but have been a PHP developer for ages… is it usually better to go for a Joomla style "index.jsp" which calls modules, or to get modules directly?

Any sort of best practices appreciated… my gut instinct would be to have "index.jsp" calling the relevant page, but I'm open to ideas…

JSP – MVC

Hi all,

Any JSP designers out there? If you see this, firstly, hello :)

I just want some clarification on whether MVC is the way forward, and if so, does anyone have any great examples? The books I've got aren't great :S

One of the biggest questions I've got is whether you have to use a servlet, or can you use a standard JSP page, and redirect, if so, avoiding the requestDispatcher and instead using instead?!

Thanks in advance!!!


Current Status

Current state of play

Unfortunately, this project hasn't really had a lot of output – I'm currently reading and sifting through lots of different materials, trying to decide best how to go about this project.

I have a couple of questions, but I'll put that on another post – hopefully people won't get bored by that one!
