Tool Overview

The caDSR Object Cart is a convenient service that enables access to a shareable data cache. One of its primary uses is between the caDSR CDE Browser and the caDSR Form Builder. It provides a number of ways for its data to be stored, either as a serialized Java Object or an XML document qualified with an XML schema. The applications using the Object Cart provide shopping cart type operations for data objects using the Object Cart API.  Items in the cart can be searched and viewed in HTML or XML using the Object Cart Browser or by creating API calls.

The Object Cart exposes a client API through which authorized applications can create instances of object carts to store, retrieve, update, and delete data objects. Objects are passed to the Object Cart server application via the client API. Either java objects adhering to the JavaBean specification and/or XML instances representing data objects passed to the client API.

Items are Copies in the Cart

The Object Cart creates a serialized COPY of an item placed in a cart. If an item changes, it needs to be added and saved back into the cart to reflect the change. Items remain in the cart until they are deleted or updated.
