|Long Description||Mary Boys offers a new way of thinking about what it means to educate religiously. Utilizing the method of map-making to broaden the context of American religious education, Boys defines a process that incorporates each instructor's own experiences, perspectives, and analytical insights to develop more compelling teaching methods. By placing both Protestant and Catholic religious education in both a historical and conceptual framework, Boys establishes a theological and educational basis for providing answers to central questions: What does it mean to educate in faith? What is the teacher's role? How much emphasis should be given to psychology, anthropology, and sociology? Toward what view of society is a theory of religious education oriented? No one maps out where we've been, where we are and where we're going more clearly than Boys does here. . . . [She] demonstrates how a real master in the field keeps the transforming power of the tradition alive for the sake of a new future. -- Craig Dykstra In the course of dealing with the history, methods, and possibilities of Christian education, [Boys] has actually given us a compendium of the main issues and trends across the whole theological spectrum. Anyone who wants to know how we have gotten to where we are today and -- more important still -- how we move ahead in the life of faith, will find this book essential reading. In its blending of graceful style and copious scholarship it sets a model. -- Robert McAfee Brown Mary Boys's encyclopedic account of religious education in North America will be useful to anyone who educates in faith and seeks to place his or her own work in historical perspective. -- Sharon Parks Mary Boys has emerged as one of the leading religious educators in North America. This comprehensive ?map of the field' will be welcomed by specialists and nonspecialists alike. -- Richard McBrien Contents: Part One: Mapmaking 1.Creating a Guidebook for Exploring 2.Surveying the Territory: Evangelism 3.Surveying the Territory: Religious Education 4.Surveying the Territory: Christian Education 5.Surveying the Territory: Catholic Education--Catechetics 6.Extending the Survey: Contemporary Modifications of Classic Expressions Part Two: Visions 7.Movements on the Horizon 8.Marking Out the Boundaries: A Way of Thinking about Religious Education Mary C.

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.
