Japsersoft BI Suite Tutorials: Drill down functionality example on HTML-5 charts ...

Hi Guys,

I have read and test the latest post from Sadakar. I must say that it allowed me to better understand some tip on how to manage drill down with HTML5 and Jasper Studio. This will  allow me to review the  Entando / Jaspersoft connector and provide more dynamic effects in the presentation in dashboards and graphs.

Entando Wiki

Today I want to talk about the Entando Wiki.
Well as you know Entando version 3.2 was launched on the web and therefore as each new version it is necessary to review all the technical documentation.

The development team is in the process to complete this process and is has already releasing the most important document to permit you to start developing using this new version.

So click here to access the Entando Wiki page on GitHub.
At the moment available documents are (I changed the order of the list of documents to try to follow a logical order that seems most consistent for me )

General documentation

This is a good starting point to begin to develop poprtails and web applications using Entando

Introduction to Entando Architectural Model

Hi guys,
today I present to you the last post published on the blog Entando:
Entando architectural model is composed by three layers:
  • Data Access Layer: It is composed by all the elements which superintend the Persistence Layer. The main component are the DAO classes (Data Access Object) which are the only linking element between the framework and the data sources (Database, Filesystem, LDAP service directory etc.)
  • Business Layer: This is the core of the system. Here the concept of Entando service as manager of every macro functionality, takes place. This layer is built upon the Spring Framework, whose listener, during the system start-up, initializes all the services and injects them in the web application context as beans. The Business Layer utilizes the Data Access layer to get the data needed, gives to the higher layer (the Presentation layer) the elements to display and supports it in the execution of actions.
  • Presentation Layer: the aim of this layer is to build the graphic interfaces which represent the mean through which the users interact with the system. This layer gives a pure View layer (that is, a JSP without any business logic) and a "slim" controller (which checks the consistency of the data submitted and serves the data produced); both of them provide support to the layer below, the Business Layer. In the Entando framework this layer is divided in two parts:
             - the Portal View, referred to as Front-end
             - the Administration View referred to as Back-end

Entando Technical Series - Part 2

Entando Architecture
As promised I'm back to talk about Entando, today I'll present the second article in the Entando technical series.
I'll  talk about the Entando Core Services.
Before starting I suggest you to take a look at the package in the Core Engine Entando, you can download it from
The Entando Core Services layer contains the business logic for the portal platform, the plugin included out of the box, the external data Services, The External Application Services, the UI Control and the REST API public interface.
The following lists present the basic services that are provided by default by Entando
  • authorization this is the service that manages and verifies the permissions to access the portal displaying all the necessary methods
  • baseconfig this is the service that manage the configuration. The configuration consists of items , identified by a name, and parameters (Parameters can be Simple strings or Complex XML texts)
  • cache this is the service that manage the System cache it’s based on the EhCache library.
  • category this is the service that manage the Category tree
  • controller this is the service that controls the execution of a request from the client. The execution is carried out in sequence by invoking any other services specified in configuration
  • group this is the service that manage the user’s group 
  • i18n this is the service that provides strings/labels based on the used language(local). The strings/labels are specified by an identification key and the reference language.
  • keygenerator as Entando doesn't use the Db sequences generator, for be independent from different players (mySql, Oracle, Postgresql,...) we had create our own sequence service
  • lang this is the service that manage the different language used in the portal.
  • page this is the service that manage the pages. Pages are held in a tree-like structure, to allow a hierarchical access.
  • pagemodel this the service that manage the pagemodel. An Entando portal can have multiple templates, these “templates” are called Page Models (more info
  • role this is the service that manage the different users role present in the portal (for ie administrator, editor, guest, …)
  • showlettype this the service that manage the different showlet(*) type used in the portal
  • url this is the service that manage URL and creates a full URL to a portal page based on essential information
  • user this is the service that manage the users registered in the portal
That's it for now. I expect you all to my next post
(*) Showlets are a key element in the creation of portals with Entando. In short Showlets are dynamic blocks of the portal, all those elements that are expected to want to move, adapt or change in the handling of the pages.(I will talk more in detail about showlet in a later post )

SOA and Enterprise Inter-Operability with a Portal

Last Post from Sam’s World
Enterprise based portals employ a desirable set of functional characteristics that provide value any number of ways. While ROI and other business calculators are engaged to offer a compelling business argument to the introduction of a company based knowledge repository, my focus will instead lie with efficiencies derived from penetrating the middleware platform of an enterprise. Several benefits provided through the use of web-based portal services & SOA are what I will explore in this post. There is a dominant, myopic perspective in which enterprise portals are viewed as an information architecture and not for what they are – an application. The architecture establishes the foundation for a common view of the data, applications, and a common management interface for content. However, the real benefit of an enterprise portal comes from the convergence, not from the web based display mechanism. This fusion differentiates enterprise portals from a collection of web sites by offering
  1. universal access to information,
  2. role-based personalization,
  3. cross-application workflow,
  4. common content management, and
  5. centralized user management.
