Post subject: The example on demand website doesn't work behind firewall
Hi:
I want to report that the example on demand website doesn't work behind a firewall, I can access to http://www.examplesondemand.com/eod/eod.htm but when I want to view the source code of the examples it redirect me to http://examples.myeclipseide.com:8001/viewvc/Struts13CookbookExample/ and of course doesn't work, Then How Can I download the examples on demand ?

greetings
Ariel

Ariel,

Sorry you are having troubles. We are planning on making the source code viewable from another port besides 8001, but this is just a short term solution. We are also going to make them available as downloadable zip files.

The best way now to get access to the source code is to download it directly from MyEclipse using the Examples On-Demand Browser.

1. Update to MyEclipse 6.0.1
2. Open Examples On-Demand browser (MyEclipse > Examples On-Demand...) and then scroll and click to install the struts13CookbookExample

However, if because you are behind a firewall you can't access the project (you will get an error message), You won't be able to install the projects through EOD Browser.

Let me know if this is indeed the case for you. We are working on providing an alternate way of installing the projects without using the EOD Browser.

Thanks

Neither the My eclipse way nor the website way work for me, That is because I am behind a firewall and a proxy.
Please let me know if I can download the examples from another way.
Thanls in advanced.

Ariel,

The View Source link has now been fixed. So you can go to that project on the examplesondemand.com site now and view the source. We have removed that special port and now it can be accessed normally over port 80.

Also, we now have a way for you to access the projects in the EOD repository from MyEclipse.
1. Make sure you have opened the EOD browser once
2. Go to Window > Show View > Team > CVS Repositories
3. You should see an entry called "MyEclipse Examples", right-click it and choose properties
4. Where "Use default port" is selected, change that to "Use port" and set "443" as the value
5. Hit OK
6. Expand the HEAD node under MyEclipse Examples. You may have to refresh the Myeclipse Examples node once.
7. Now from the list of projects, find the one you are interested it, right-click it and choose "Check out"

That's it. That will download the project and install it into your workspace. Hope this helps.

I have seen the view Source Code link has now been fixed. So I can go to that project on the examplesondemand.com site now and view the source, good work !!! but as you say the way to download the projects is from myeclipse repositories, I have changed the cvs client repositories default port to 443 as you say but the eod browser seems to broken because I canĀ“t check out the projects I received an Exception.
Please notify me if in fact the eod browser is out of order.
Greetings
Thanks for your help.

We just posted a HOWTO for firewall users. Give it a try and see what happens.

http://www.examplesondemand.com/firewall.jsp

Let us know if this works. Basically you have to do the 443 port workaround but you still can't use the EOD browser. But you can checkout the projects manually, as this document about shows.

When I do all the instructions you say in your guide I get this exception: socks exception read timeout.
I have attached the image with the error.
I don't know why it doesn't work. Is the remote repository available now ?
Greetings.

We will have to raise the white flag on this one. Your firewall is sniffing traffic to make sure it is really https traffic which ours isn't.

So the only recourse we have now is to make the project source available as zip download. This option hasn't been made available yet and I'm not sure of its status. I'll update you if I find out anything.

Sorry we couldn't get it working. The only chance now for you to see this thing working is to try it at a different location like at home.

OK. Thanks anyway for your help.
I hope I could get the examples soon.

I too have the same problem, even with the port 443 work around. These (EOD) seem like useful items, so I also would be interested in an alternate method to obtain them asap.

Thank you.

Post subject: Examples on Demand connection refused
Hello,

I am having trouble to install the examples from the EOD. I get an error message saying connection refused. I am not a seasoned professional like every one else here and am doing this as a hobby. Can you please tell me if this is a known problem or if I am doing something wrong ?


Thanks in advance

This could be a firewall issue. Are you doing this from home or work? Also are you able to view the source on the examples?

Any update on having the examplesondemand available for manual download? I too, am behind a firewall, and have tried the work-around of setting the port to 443, and our firewall still clobbers it.

Thanks In Advance!

This is still a no go proposition. Could you please zip the whole EOD repository and make that available for download? This is never going to work as-is for your customers in medium to large businesses.

Do you have access to the internet at home? Is the MyEclipse you have installed at work licensed to you or your company? If you can install MyEclipse at home, you can download the examples, put them on a flash drive and take them to work the next day?

Or download the 30 day trial of MyEclipse at home, then download all the examples on demand, then delete the 30 day trial version. Take all the examples on demand to work and install them there.

At work, just create a project of exactly the same name as the example on demand, then copy the files under that directory, then refresh the project and you should be all set. You'll still have to deploy under Tomcat or whatever, but there's always a way to get where you want to go.


Just a thought.

You are absolutely correct but it would be so much easier for everyone involved if Genuitec would solve this on their end. They could do what I suggested or really expose their CVS on 443 or even switch over to Subversion, which has much more flexible networking.

I still get a connection time out. If have tried the firewall howto but this is not working.
Can you place a zip file on the sever to download?

Looks like this is still an issue even with the latest version. where can I find an archive/zip with the EOD to download directly, unzip and try?

Thanks

Post subject: RE: ZIP file available
Yes, after 3 years it's still an issue - though I've looked at them at home and they are mostly the same code from the Tutorials available from the Help menu...though I can never get them to work with the current version because of various syntax, inconsistancy errors.

What are people using these days to create simple database driven web sites. Our company wants to standardize on Eclipse, I'm a .Net person and let me tell you it's 100% easier to do a lot of these things in .Net

I also was looking into Netbeans, which seemed to be a little more forgiving and I actually got further ahead with their examples.

Can anyone recommend a good book that actually covers real world database applications without a stupid "Hello world.." project?

My first experiences with MyEclipse haven't been all that great. Not only are the examples not accessible from behind a firewall, I haven't been able to get Maven4MyEclipse working (firewall proxy problems again).

I would actually give Netbeans a try - it's improved a substantial amount in recent years. I would say it's now got equivalent features to Eclipse.

This might be useful for you. Haven't used it myself, but it appears to give you a kick start for developing web apps http://appfuse.org/display/APF/Home
