JED (Java Editor for DataTables) performs on the server side handling the business logic of our web applications. The examples provided here are focused on variations of server side setups to meet the requirements for most scenarios. These examples are by no means the only examples. For other examples that are more focused on the client side involving DataTables, we recommend you visit SpryMedia's website for DataTables and Editor.
All examples on this website adhere to the latest version of DataTables v1.10.# and Editor v1.5.# series. Two new features, multi-row editing and file uploads, are supported by JED.
JED has been designed to provide extra versatility allowing the programmer to access their database without involving DataTables on the client side. There are times when you have a web page that has form fields that you want to populate with data from your database. Below are a number of examples that demonstrate how you can use JED in more general use case scenarios.
As you browse through each example, note that there is a separate tab labelled simply Java which references the controller Java Server Page. In a production environment you will likely want to use a Servlet instead. Java Server Pages are used as our controller scripts for demonstration purposes only so that the source code can be viewed under the Java tab.
Please note that the database which is used for these examples is reset after every Session closes.
