|Long Description||After Sheriff Dan Ellis keeps Josh Carson and Tiny Hamilton out of the tar and feathering pot, he gives the two drifters a choice of thirty days in jail or bull-whacking for Frenchy Buckalew and her freight line. After only a few days on the line, the two cowpokes figure thirty days or the tar pot would have been a better choice. But before the two light-hearted drifters can whistle one verse of "Git Along Little Doggie," they find themselves crawling out on a mighty thin limb to help a spoiled young filly fresh from the East and her two orphaned younger brothers who are the targets of a wealthy merchant and his hired band of Comancheros. These men are determined to drive the woman and her brothers from their ranch in the Palo Duro Canyons in pursuit of a thousand gold double eagles hidden on the land. The hostility escalates to violence and leads to a final shootout which could cost Josh and Tiny their lives.|

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.

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.
