The Historical Atlas of Judaism is a fascinating account of the four thousand year old history of the Jewish faith, divided into six comprehensive sections surveying in detail the emergence of the Jews in Ancient Palestine right up to the modern Israeli state. Over 100 specially commissioned, richly detailed maps uncover the Jewish story across the world and over the centuries, while authoritative text and carefully selected pictures and photographs analyze and explain the nature and extent of the Jewish achievement. The result is an exciting immediate depiction of the turbulent history of one of the world’s most remarkable peoples.

The book begins by looking at the origins of the Jewish faith, in the wider context of the ancient civilizations, their technology, warfare styles and trade networks. The book contains an extensive section on the Middle Ages. The book wraps up with an examination of the Jewish experience in World War II and the nineteenth century followed by the legacy of the Jews.

Every facet of Jewish life is explored, with authoritative coverage of such crucial topics as the great diasporas, the flowering of Yiddish culture in Europe, the pogroms and persecutions, the rebirth of Zionism in the 19th Century, the foundation of modern Israeli, the Arab-Israeli conflict, Jewish seets and the way of life of Jews inside and outside their homeland in the modern world. Above all, The Historical Atlas of Judaism gives a detailed history of the Jewish faith and its culture.

This is a basic implementation of a service that provides retrieval access to the 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 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 (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 web site.

JSR 353 is the Java API for JSON is currently under development ( &  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.

Provided from when your account is setup.

Mode (Required)
The manner in which the data will be retrieved from the web site.
AutoRetrieveGraphics (Optional)
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.
