|Long Description||Best known for light, entertaining musicals such as Singin' in the Rain, director Stanley Donen grew more adventurous (and less successful) in the latter stages of his career, but this edgy romantic comedy from 1967 has proven to be one of Donen's best, most enduring films. Jumping back in forth in time, the film chronicles the marital ups and downs of a stylish British couple (Albert Finney and Audrey Hepburn) as they travel on various vacations over the course of their 12-year marriage. The separate vignettes combine to form a collage of joys and pains as the young couple struggles to maintain their fading marital bliss. In this regard, the film is refreshingly sophisticated in its treatment of the difficulties of long-term commitment, and with Hepburn and Finney in the leads, great performances are drawn from the acerbic wit of Frederick Raphael's screenplay. Fashion mavens will also marvel at Hepburn's astonishing wardrobe of late-'60s fashion--she's a showcase for summer couture, looking fantastic in everything from candy-striped bellbottoms to hip sunglasses and outrageously stylish hats. Some of the melodrama clashes with forced comedy (such as tiresome running gags or a cartoonish portrayal of crass American tourists), but that doesn't stop Two for the Road from being timelessly appealing and truthful to the challenge of lasting love. --Jeff Shannon|

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.
