How do i do that?

Errata to the Example 1-4 Errata You say to add the following: public ArrayListRentABike() {} Although this will compile and run it will not produce the correct output. One has to add the inventory to the bike list. So adding the following will produce the correct output: public ArrayListRentABike() { bikes.add(new Bike("Shimano", "Roadmaster", 20, "11111", 15, "Fair")); bikes.add(new Bike("Cannondale", "F2000 XTR", 18, "22222", 12, "Excellent")); bikes.add(new Bike("Trek", "6000", 19, "33333", 12.4, "Fair")); } Then one should change the old constructor as follows: public ArrayListRentABike(String storeName) { ArrayListRentABike(); this.storeName = storeName; } Also for chapter one you don't say which jars to include. I added the following to get it to work: spring.jar commons-logging.jar log4j-1.2.9.jar And I added the following log4j.properties file: log4j.appender.stdout=org.apache.log4j.ConsoleAppender log4j.appender.stdout.layout=org.apache.log4j.PatternLayout log4j.appender.stdout.layout.ConversionPattern=[%5p] %d{HH:mm:ss} %c{1} - %m%n log4j.appender.daily=org.apache.log4j.DailyRollingFileAppender log4j.appender.daily.layout=org.apache.log4j.PatternLayout log4j.appender.daily.layout.ConversionPattern=[%5p] %d{HH:mm:ss} %c{1} - %m%n log4j.appender.daily.File=@logfile.path@ log4j.appender.daily.DatePattern='.'yyyy-MM-dd log4j.rootLogger=WARN,stdout,daily log4j.category.com.springinaction=DEBUG log4j.category.org.springframework=WARN log4j.category.net.sf.hibernate=WARN log4j.category.net.sf.acegisecurity=DEBUG

Example 2-17

This change (the addition of the editBikeForm bean) means that the UrlMapper originally shown in example originally shown in example 2-12 should now point the url /editBike.bikes to editBikeForm, not editBikeController -- The changes in Exercise 3 require the following addition to web.xml: <taglib> <taglib-uri>/spring</taglib-uri> <taglib-location>/WEB-INF/lib/spring.tld</taglib-location> </taglib>

"... and, if you are a consientious developer, implementing a test class that tests your action." should be: "... and, if you are a conscientious developer, implementing a test class that tests your action." -- Page 61, example 4-3, requires that the System Property "jdbc.drivers" be set to "com.mysql.jdbc.Driver" and the appropriate jar file containing the driver exist in the /lib folder. That system property can be set from the command line, from the IDE, or in code, such as: System.setProperty("jdbc.drivers", "com.mysql.jdbc.Driver"); -- At the end of exercise 1, page 61, we say we "Then, you created a new Ant task, and ran the task to create a database and some sample data. ", but the Ant task is never shown. Here it is: <path id="mysql.class.path"> <pathelement location="${war.dir}/WEB-INF/lib/mysql-connector-java-3.0.14- production-bin.jar"/> </path> <target name="create.tables"> <sql driver="com.mysql.jdbc.Driver" url="${database.url}" userid="${database.username}" password=""> <classpath> <path refid="mysql.class.path"/> </classpath> <fileset dir="${db.dir}"> <include name="rentabike.sql"/> </fileset> </sql> </target> -- Exercise 3, example 4-7 (pages 67 and 68): drop the line "template.setDataSource(this.dataSource)" both places it appears in the sample. -- Exercise 4, starting on page 68, we begin showing the use of two new classes, Reservation and Customer. Those classes are shown below: Reservation.java - package com.springbook; import java.util.Date; public class Reservation { private int reservationId; private Date reservationDate; private Bike bike; private Customer customer; public Reservation() { } public int getReservationId() { return reservationId; } public void setReservationId(int reservationId) { this.reservationId = reservationId; } public Date getReservationDate() { return reservationDate; } public void setReservationDate(Date reservationDate) { this.reservationDate = reservationDate; } public Bike getBike() { return bike; } public void setBike(Bike bike) { this.bike = bike; } public Customer getCustomer() { return customer; } public void setCustomer(Customer customer) { this.customer = customer; } public Reservation(int id, Bike bike, Customer customer, Date date) { this.reservationId = id; this.bike = bike; this.customer = customer; this.reservationDate = date; } public String toString() { return "Reservation : " + "reservationId -- " + reservationId + " : reservationDate -- " + reservationDate + " : bike -- " + bike + " : customer -- " + customer + ".

-Example 4-8

Change JdcbTemplate template = new JdcbTemplate(); to JdbcTemplate template = getJdbcTemplate(); -- In Exercise 5, example 4-10, page 72, the line MockControl controlConnection = MockControl.createControl(Connection.class); should be changed to use the createNiceControl method instead. -- In Exercise 1, there is a new dependency on jdom.jar which should go in the /WEB- INF/lib folder. -- in Exercise 2, the build file should be updated to add the new dependencies to the bikestore.class.path. -- in Exercise 3, example 5-14, page 91, the first property is missing the opening "<" -- in Exercise 1, we show the new logger intercepter using the LogEvent class, but never show the class itself or its mapping. They are shown below: LogEvent.java - package com.springbook; import java.util.Date; /** * Replace * * @author Justin Gehtland * @version $Revision: 1.1 $ $Date: 2004/10/15 21:21:41 $ */ public class LogEvent { private int eventId; private String methodName; private Date dateTime; private String message; public LogEvent() { } public LogEvent(String methodName, Date date, String message) { this.eventId = -1; this.methodName = methodName; this.dateTime = date; this.message = message; } public LogEvent(String methodName, Date date) { this(methodName, date, ""); } public String getMessage() { return message; } public void setMessage(String message) { this.message = message; } public int getEventId() { return eventId; } public void setEventId(int eventId) { this.eventId = eventId; } public String getMethodName() { return methodName; } public void setMethodName(String methodName) { this.methodName = methodName; } public Date getDateTime() { return dateTime; } public void setDateTime(Date dateTime) { this.dateTime = dateTime; } } LogEvent.hbm.xml - <?xml version="1.0"?> <!DOCTYPE hibernate-mapping PUBLIC "-//Hibernate/Hibernate Mapping DTD//EN" "http://hibernate.sf.net/hibernate-mapping-2.0.dtd"> <hibernate-mapping> <class name="com.springbook.LogEvent" table="eventlog"> <id name="eventId" column="eventId" type="java.lang.Integer" unsaved-value="-1"> <generator class="native"></generator> </id> <property name="methodName" column="methodname" type="string"/> <property name="dateTime" column="datetime" type="date"/> <property name="message" column="message" type="string"/> </class> </hibernate-mapping> -- in Exercise 2, example 6-3, page 103, at the end of the example (after the closing </beans> tag) there is another datasource bean defined. This bean is actually defined in the file (in the portion elided in the example, where the <!-- etc. --> comment is). If a read were to copy and paste the code as shown, it would not be valid XML. -- in Exercise 6, examples 6-16 and 6-18 (pages 111 and 112) should be labeled MockInterceptorTest.java, not ControllerTest.java -- in Exercise 6, example 6-18, page 113, the second appearance of the line "sessionControl.setMatcher(MockControl.ALWAYS_MATCHER);" should be removed. -- Exercise 3, starting on page 121. This entire section (multiple databases) requires that your application be running in a J2EE container environment, and that the appropriate JNDI system properties are set (javax.naming.factory.initial, etc.). The JTATransactionManager does not work without a JTA provider to back it. We do not mention this directly in the text, and should. -- In Exercise 4, example 7-18, page 130, the *.htm should be changed to *.bikes. In addition, we need to add the following line at the end of the example to include ACEGI's Auto Integration Filter: <bean id="autoIntegrationFilter" class="net.sf.acegisecurity.ui.AutoIntegrationFilter"></bean> -- in Exercise 2, example 8-7, page 146, need to change the serviceURL to yourhost:8080/rentaBike/remoting/RentABike. Also, in web.xml (ex. 8-5), need to add a new servlet-mapping. <servlet-mapping> <servlet-name>remoting</servlet-name> <url-pattern>/remoting/*</url-pattern> </servlet-mapping> -- in Exercise 3, we should mention that the standalone listener (example 8-15, page 150) requires a JNDI lookup for the JMS provider. ActiveMQ comes with a non-JNDI test consumer called Consumer, available in the /example directory of the ActiveMQ install. -- exercise 4, example 8-16, page 153, the file is missing its last "}" -- exercise 4, example 8-18, page 154, the line "assertEquals("La Bruja", b.getManufacturer());" should be "assertEquals("La Bruja", b.getModel());"
