|Long Description||Early one morning Sheriff Lane Tipton rode out from Deer Creek, Texas, with one of his two prisoners, Tater Rankin, in tow. He was transporting Rankin to Fort Worth to stand trial for robbery. Leaving his deputy behind to watch the town and the other prisoner, notorious killer named Blackie Getts, Tipton rides out intending to be gone just a few days, expecting no trouble. Two days later Blackie's gang rides into town, kills the deputy and three other influential men in town then set up camp waiting for the sheriff to return. Getts fully intends to kill the sheriff for locking him up. As they are waiting, they capture Tipton's fiancée and debate about ransoming her off to her father or waiting for the reaction of the sheriff. Meanwhile, Tipton and Rankin stumble across a family deserted in the middle of nowhere after being robbed. They set out to find the thieves but find themselves in a heap of trouble: Getts decides to take off after Tipton and the two parties will soon meet back in Deer Creek with in hours of each other for a brutal showdown.|

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.
provides the address used to query UPC data. The additional parameters are added to retrieve the requested information.
Provided from EANData.com when your account is setup.
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.
