Searching my code and other files outside my IDE is something that I need to do often but I haven't found a good solution. I have tried: Windows XP search: slow Google Desktop: indexing prevents renaming directories, hanging when using remote desktop, and IT prohibited because of security Copernic Desktop Search: same renaming problem, seems to not keep index up to date. Command line find and...

Some of my co-workers had their cvs login name changed so we had the problem where every directory checked out from cvs had a CVS subdirectory with a Root file in it that had the old username. The easy way was to delete all checkouts and checkout again but if that would cause the loss of data we needed a different solution. I handled my machine by doing a Windows search for all Root files, adding...

Everyone can mount their own development kit, buying each element (smart card reader, smart cards, SDK and Java Card applet uploader) from different vendors or in some cases getting some of these elements for free. The market of smart cards is still very small and closed, this makes it hard to find information about free alternatives for Java Card development tools. I will show the elements of a...

The main idea was to implement the remote power controller to have some kind of remote control over electricity sockets. The plan was to create the adapter to control the electricity flow through the LPT port and to write an appropriate API. The next check-point was to play with sound recognition API and to integrate it with the electricity control adapter. All these ideas were just the ideas...

How many times you observed someone modifying the code formatting of Java classes and other people getting crazy about the lost of the project history from the Concurrent Versions System? At first sight it seems just a problem of communication - someone is not following the company standards or something like that. But think again - is it really a human problem, or our tools are not wise enough...

adamTaglet -- Architecture Driven Assisted Modeling Taglet -- is a taglet that generates class diagrams from a custom JavaDoc tag. The tag holds a list of the leaf classes for the diagram and a list of forbidden classes. adamTaglet walks the class and interface inheritance structures from the leaves, building up a directed graph. The taglet stops walking the graph whenever it reaches an...

Bonjour, comment Java? Ajax jMaki plugin (https://ajax.dev.java.net) for NetBeans is evolving rapidly. Now, a new set of JSP wizards is available to create JSP files following well defined CSS styles. After installing this add-on plugin, you'll have access to the jMaki palette for easy Drag and Drop of Ajax components from dojo library, yahoo toolkit, google, etc as seen in this visual gallery,...

Hi Forks, I've been working with a new Greenbox module, which will allow Eclipse developers to use Greenbox Framework easier. I that worked, I did a really nice thing, I associate a *.vm file with Java Editor, and in a few seconds I had Velocty Editor with All syntax highlight necessary to create and edit Velocity templates for Greenbox. Take a look how to Enable it on your enviroment: I hope...

BeanView is library for automatically generating user interface forms directly from JavaBeans, with built-in support for validation and complex data models. For more information about BeanView, see http://www.beanview.com/. BeanView 1.0.1 has been posted. The main feature change is support for render IDs in the Echo 2 implementation, thereby adding support for Selenium. Download BeanView 1.0.1...

Singulars and plurals are so different, bless my soul. Has it ever occurred to you that the plural of "half" is "whole"? Allan Sherman, One Hippopotami It's well known that Perl has been heavily influenced by ideas from natural language, which probably explains why it has so many libraries for handling natural language text. Java is less well served, but as our...

I've been working on an open source framework for some time now, which I have now released as BeanView 1.0. It can be downloaded from: http://www.beanview.com/ http://sourceforge.net/projects/beanview/ Briefly, BeanView allows you to create forms from your POJO + JDK 1.5 Annotations models. It supports generating forms for both Swing and Echo 2 user interfaces. No code generation is required -...

Yes, it's true that I've been lax in my blogging so far this year because I've been working as the Chief Architect of Krugle. Sure, I've written some entries on the Krugle blog but living the startup life is definitely not conducive to regular blogging -- even at a company whose blogmaster is none other than the wild and crazy Chris Locke of e.g., The Cluetrain Manifesto fame (and the rest of...

Every project should use some kind of continuous integration tool. As Martin Fowler writes (and we all know who Mr. Fowler is), 'Developing a disciplined and automated build process is essential to a controlled project.' (read more). If you use Luntbuild as a continuous integration tool, and Ivy as your depencency manager of choice, this article could help you to integrate those two tools....

JGroups is a toolkit for reliable multicast communication in Java. If you're like me, which means that you barely know what multicast means, and you're running SuSE 10.0, you'll have troubles to understand why JGroups demos don't work and what you need to do to have it working. First of all, lets see what multicast is: it's a way to send a message over network to selected recipients which belong...

Eclipse 3.2M6 was out and is almost ready for the final. Eclipse 3.2 supports Java SE 5 as well as Java SE 6. Eclipse Web Tools project also unveiled WTP 1.5M5, which is aimed at Java EE 5 with Dali, EJB 3 support and JSF. Once Eclipse 3.2 and WTP 1.5 cut the final simultaneously, you will be able to enjoy developing Java EE 5 applications on top of the full Eclipse support. When it comes to "...

So, I've been happily using Opera for a while now. I have applied a cool skin, imported my Firefox bookmarks, created and saved sessions (Opera has session-saving of tabs built-in), and so on. There are, of course, a few caveats: I'm not too fond of the way Opera caches things. For normal browsing this is fine, but it's annoying for web development. For now, I've actually turned off caching. It'...

I came across several interesting communication glitches in an offshore development software. This project comprises analysis, design, architecture and QA teams who work onshore, while developer teams are working offshore. We faced problems such as communication bottlenecks and lack of awareness of what developers were physically producing. A big part of these problems we got solved through the...
