|Author||George Bernard Shaw|
|Long Description||One of George Bernard Shaw's best-known plays, Pygmalion was a rousing success on the London and New York stages, an entertaining motion picture and a great hit with its musical version, My Fair Lady . An updated and considerably revised version of the ancient Greek legend of Pygmalion and Galatea, the 20th-century story pokes fun at the antiquated British class system. In Shaw's clever adaptation, Professor Henry Higgins, a linguistic expert, takes on a bet that he can transform an awkward cockney flower seller into a refined young lady simply by polishing her manners and changing the way she speaks. In the process of convincing society that his creation is a mysterious royal figure, the Professor also falls in love with his elegant handiwork. The irresistible theme of the emerging butterfly, together with Shaw's brilliant dialogue and splendid skills as a playwright, have made Pygmalion one of the most popular comedies in the English language. A staple of college drama courses, it is still widely performed.|

This is a basic implementation of a service that provides retrieval access to the EANData.com UPC web site. Its was coded to verify basic proof-of-concept for development of another application and was not intended to provide be anything more than basic functionality in the retrieval of UPC data from the EANData.com web site.
There are several places where simple code was left in place rather than using more advanced Java features/methods to allow for easier understanding of junior developers. Not much time spent refactoring or cleaning up the code. It is provided as a starting point only.
It contains a Factory service that returns a service object configured using the UcpService.properties (see below) file found in the class path of the executed code. The UpcQueryService can respond with an implementation of the UpcResponse and supporting interfaces or with an InputStream allowing direct access to the response from the from the EANData.com web site.
JSR 353 is the Java API for JSON is currently under development (http://java.net/projects/json-processing-spec & http://java.net/projects/jsonp). The several Java JSON implementations seemed to be more than I was wanting/needing so I wrote a basic parser to provide JSON parsing capability needed. Its not perfect but is a good basic start.
