DXplain, a decision support system developed at the Laboratory of Computer Science at the Massachusetts General Hospital, has the characteristics of both an electronic medical textbook and a medical reference system. In its reference or case analysis mode, DXplain accepts a set of clinical findings (signs, symptoms, laboratory data) to produce a ranked list of diagnoses which might explain (or be associated with) the clinical manifestations. DXplain provides justification for why each of these diseases might be considered, suggests what further clinical information would be useful to collect for each disease, and lists what clinical manifestations, if any, would be unusual or atypical for each of the specific diseases.

Clinical Decision Support Closes Medical Evidence Gap

Best practice data is available for most healthcare decisions, but health IT teams are doing a lousy job of getting it to doctors, says Ascension Health informatics chief.

If Meaningful Use of electronic health records is ever going to fulfill its promise of better care at lower cost, clinical decision support (CDS) systems had better play a central role delivering relevant medical evidence to the point of care, according to one veteran informatics physician and patient safety advocate.

Spring MVC: from JSP and Tiles to Thymeleaf

Posted on October 30th, 2012 by Michael Isvy in Spring, Web.

Michael Isvy

When it comes to the view layer, Spring @MVC gives you a variety of choices. In this article, we will first discuss the way you have most likely used the view layer in the past few years: JSP. We will see the bad and better ways to work with them (plain JSP, JSP with custom tags, Apache Tiles).

We will then discuss a new project called Thymeleaf, which you can use as an alternate approach to JSP.

As usual, you can find all the code samples discussed in the corresponding application on github.

Tomcat Expert: Use Spring Insight Developer to Analyze Code, Install it with Tomcat, and Extend it with Plugins

Submitted by Pieter Humphrey on Fri, 2012-12-07 15:39

Did you know Springsource offers a free code trace / analysis tool with a large ecosystem of plugins, and is now extensible beyond Java? People are still discovering the benefits of the free tool from VMware SpringSource, called Spring Insight Developer . The Tomcat Expert blog provides an short explanation of what Spring Insight Developer does, how to set it up with Apache Tomcat , and an example of available plugins.

Learn more at the TomcatExpert Blog and experience faster, easier troubleshooting!

JCR + Spring


Apache Jackrabbit Examples

Spring Configuration

You can create a Repository reference in Spring in multiple ways, but here’s one that uses the RepositoryImpl class:

    <bean id="repository">
        <constructor-arg index="0" ref="config" />
    <bean id="config" factory-method="create">
        <constructor-arg index="0" value="./repository.xml"/>
        <constructor-arg index="1" value="." />

This will create a repository in the current directory, using ./repository.xml as the configuration file. This isn’t as complete as se-jcr will be (hopefully) but this does work with Spring 3.0 and JackRabbit 2.0.

Integrating Java Content Repository and Spring

Posted by Costin Leau on Mar 12, 2007

JCR module

Part of Spring Modules, JCR module’s main objective is to simplify development with the JSR-170 API in a similar manner to that of the ORM package from the main Spring distribution. Features include:

  • JcrTemplate which allows execution of JcrCallback and exception handling (transforming checked JCR exceptions into unchecked Spring DAO exceptions). The template implements most of the methods from the JCR Session and can be easily used as a replacement. Moreover the template is aware of thread-bound sessions which can be used across several methods, functionality very useful when using a transactional repository.
  • RepositoryFactoryBean which configures, starts and stops the repository instances. As the JSR-170 doesn’t address the way the repository should be configured, implementations vary in this regard. The support contains predefined FactoryBeans for Jackrabbit and Jeceira and an abstract base class which can easily support other repositories.
  • SessionFactory which unifies the Repository,Credentials and Workspace interfaces and allows automatic registration of listeners and custom namespaces.
  • Spring declarative transactional support for repositories that implement the (optional) transactional feature.
  • OpenSessionInView interceptor and filter which allow the usage of the same session per thread across different components. Along with JcrTemplate, the retrieval, closure and management of the JCR session is externalized and totally transparent to the caller.

For this article, the reference implementation (Jackrabbit) will be used however, since the JCR module is using the javax.jcr interfaces changing the implementation is just a matter of configuration. Let’s see step by step how to use Java Content Repository on top of Jackrabbit and how Spring Modules can help.

Spring Extension JCR JSR standard support

The standard support works only with the JSR-170 API (represented by javax.jcr package) without making any use of specific features of the implementations (which we will discuss later).

How do I deploy Jackrabbit into Tomcat?

  • Download jcr-1.0.jar and put it into <tomcat-install-dir>/shared/lib.
  • or better  jcr-2.0.jar put into <tomcat-install-dir>/lib
  • Get the WAR distribution from the Downloads page and deploy it into Tomcat.
  • Point your browser to http://localhost:8080/jackrabbit-webapp-<version>/
