The web interface should provide a way for editing and deleting books already existing on the server. For each book there should be separate page for manipulation.

Task requirements

  • For each book uploaded by user, should be created a page for editing.
  • The user should be able to delete his/her own books.

Task result

  • Page providing book manipulation unique for each book.

Implementation idea

  • Use BookService class and its methods.
  • Create a jso page with dynamic content different for the different books.


How to demo

Show the newly created page for manipulating with books.


  • create a page edit_book.jsp
    • the page must not be accessible from users with username different from the book author.
    • put a "Delete" button in this page - it will delete the bok entry from the database for now;
    • there must be a form with the fields, representing book properties. They will automatically fill-in on page load with the current values;
    • fields to be present: author,title,fileName,version,description,copyright,allowclone(checkbox);
    • buttons at the form bottom: Update, Cancel.
    • the "author" field must be immutable.
    • the collected data must be posted to a servlet (for example, BookEditorServlet), which will update the book entry if the data is correct, and return to the jsp with appropriate warning message is a problem occurs.
  • Add entry for the new servlet in
  • Add the appropriate constant strings for the warning messages in
  • in books.jsp, add the "/edit_book.jsp" with appropriate parameters as link for the "edit" button. The resulting address for each book should look like: "/edit_book.jsp?title={title}"
  • in my_sophie.jsp(S2S_WEB_BOOK_MANAGEMENT_R0), make the links for each book title correct;


edit_book.jsp created:

  • non-logged users, users which are not authors to a book, ot incorrect book parameters are redirected to the index.jsp
  • Delete button was created, which asks for confirmation when clicked. If confirmed, redirects to the BookDeleteServlet servlet, which actually deletes the book and returns with appropriate message.
  • The book fields are implemented as the Design.
  • two more buttons: Update, which redirects to BookEditorServlet, and Cancel, which returns to index.jsp
  • BookEditorServlet is implemented as the design says.

ServerModule was updated with the two servlet entries.
ServerConstants was updated with BOOK_DELETED and BOOK_CANNOT_DELETE.
Links in my_sophie.jsp and books.jsp were set up.
