|Long Description||1918. Young Lady Helen Barstairs, the dutiful daughter of Lord Hardingham, believes everything her mother and father tell her. So when her parents say she will never find a better husband than Richard - 'brave, handsome, wealthy, such a charming man and quite a catch' - she believes them, and agrees to marry him before his return to the Front. Helen hopes the letters they exchange will allow them to get to know one another but over time, Richard's correspondence becomes increasingly cold and distant, and Helen begins to wonder just who this man she has married really is. And that's when Oliver Donovan enters her life.Helen knew embarking on an affair was not a wise decision but, for the first time in her life, Helen knew what it felt like to be in love. With the war continuing on foreign shores, Oliver had to return to his regiment - and was never seen again. Learning she is with child, Helen confesses all to her shocked parents, who force her to give up her baby. She vows to find her child again one day. Over twenty years pass and it seems history is about to repeat itself; a new war has begun, and another young woman is about to lose her heart to a serviceman - Can lessons of the past save the heartache of a new generation?|

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.
The UpcService.properties must be configured.

The manner in which the data will be retrieved from the EANData.com web site.
Boolean to indicate whether the graphics, when indicated by a Url, are to be automatically retrieved at the same time with the UPC data. Default is false. A factory method allows for the this property to be overridden at the time the UpcQueryService is created.
