CSV-, Excel- and Text-File Upload helper

This addon is used to process a CSV, Excel or text file. To execute a clean processing, the corresponding variable (= Excel cell) must be annotated in the corresponding domain class (Excel -> Java) with the fileUpload annotation. The FileUpload annotation must be passed to a FileUploadProcessor. This serves to carry out a test on the corresponding, e.g. Excel cell. Further in the code examples.

How to use it

Official releases of this add-on are available at Vaadin Directory. For Maven instructions, download and reviews, go to https://vaadin.com/directory#!addon/list-file-upload

How it works

You must annotate variables that are to be set during the file upload with the annotation @FileUpload().

Example:

public class DemoObject {
    @FileUpload(header = "first-name", converter = FirstNameDemoObjectUploadProcessor.class)
    private String firstName;

    @FileUpload(header = "last-name", converter = LastNameDemoObjectUploadProcessor.class)
    private String lastName;

    @FileUpload(header = "email", converter = EmailDemoObjectUploadProcessor.class)
    private String email;
    
    [...]
}

File cell processor example:

public class FirstNameDemoObjectUploadProcessor implements FileCellProcessor<DemoObject> {
    @Override
    public void process(DemoObject data, Cell cell) throws ContentValidationException {
        String value = cell.getStringValue();

        if (StringUtils.isNotBlank(value)) {
            data.setFirstName(value);
        } else {
            throw new ContentValidationException("Field First-Name is required");
        }
    }
}

Simple

In the Vaadin UI, you must initialize the SimpleFileUploadProcessor and specify what should happen in case of a fault-free or incorrect file upload. The SimpleFileUploadProcessor must be passed to the upload element (from Vaadin) assucceededListener.

Example:

SimpleFileUploadProcessor<DemoObject> uploadProcessor = new SimpleFileUploadProcessor<>(DemoObject.class,
    (event, items) -> {
        gridSimpleItems.addAll(items);
        demoSimpleGrid.getDataProvider().refreshAll();
    }, (event, errorItems) -> {
        gridSimpleErrorItems.addAll(errorItems);
        importErrorSimpleGrid.getDataProvider().refreshAll();
    });

Upload upload = new Upload("Choose file...", uploadProcessor);
upload.addSucceededListener(uploadProcessor);
rootLayout.addComponent(upload);

Stream

In the Vaadin UI, you must initialize the StreamFileUploadProcessor and specify what should happen in case of a fault-free or incorrect file upload. The StreamFileUploadProcessor must be passed to the upload element (from Vaadin) assucceededListener.

Example:

StreamFileUploadProcessor<DemoObject> uploadProcessor = new StreamFileUploadProcessor<>(DemoObject.class,
    item -> {
        gridStreamItems.add(item);
        demoStreamGrid.getDataProvider().refreshAll();
    }, error -> {
        gridStreamErrorItems.add(error);
        importErrorStreamGrid.getDataProvider().refreshAll();
    }, event -> Notification.show("Upload completed!"));

Upload upload = new Upload("Choose file...", uploadProcessor);
upload.addSucceededListener(uploadProcessor);
rootLayout.addComponent(upload);
