    Nowadays the Enterprise applications beyond persist String and number also can save file. Persist this information is very interesting, for example, a civil process there are information about the process (name of author, date, number of protocol) and the document which represents, or a twett with an image. In Apache Cassandra, you can save file, but for large file you should use...

After a long 5 year wait, finally comes the new version of Java,  jdk 7. The entire Java 7 project was divided into two sub-projects: The coin project; which featured a few improvements to the language like switch with strings, mutil try etc. Lamba's project containing some of the most innovative and complex features results in leaving the...

Beyond being merely a computer programming language, Java is the most widely used software platform in the entire world. There is a large number of various software solutions that were developed using this technology. Without many people being aware, Java is present in our daily lives in embedded technologies like blue-ray discs and a countless number of sites on the internet that...

Programming

Welcome to the 198th issue of The Java(tm) Specialists' Newsletter sent to you from Chania in Greece. My readers in colder climates frequently get annoyed when I tell them that "life's a beach". They imagine us having constant sun here. It's not true. We do sometimes have torrential rains and cold weather. It even snows here occasionally. In fact, the delivery...

A few weeks ago I updated my age to be a factor of 2 and 5.  It is the perfect age to reflect what life is all about.  Some men don a leather jacket and ride around on a Harley.  But as a geek I know exactly where to turn - my beloved computer.   I needed a long-running method for the new concurrency course I am writing.  Something that would take about 15 seconds and...

A new tutorial that exercises VisualLangLab using all the examples and techniques in Chapter-3, A Quick Tour for the Impatient, of the book The Definitive ANTLR Reference can be found at this link. Various other improvements have been made in version 7: A new WildCard pseudo-token that matches any defined token has been added to facilitate recovery from errors...

Swing

The problems that are related to the application context might be invisible from the outside of the Swing core libraries, but it has been a big deal for the Swing toolkit developers. Every time when you create a mutable static field in a Swing class you potentially introduce a security whole. It is quite surprising that an ordinary pattern of the Java language becomes a problem. To understand...

Swing makes it very easy to control and modify simple components like JLabel or JButton. It gets trickier when you customize a compound component like JTree or JTable. Unlike a simple component, JTable consists of multiple subcomponents like table header, renderer and editor, so actually JTable is not a single component but a container with several descendants. Imagine that you want to customize...

GUI

I am very pleased to announce the release of SwingX 1.6.3.  While the release notes contain many fixes, I wanted to take a minute to highlight some of the major changes. First and foremost, we have more fully adopted Maven.  The project is now a collection of smaller modules. This will make it easier for clients to use only the pieces of SwingX that they need or want.  To enable us...

In my last blog I’ve introduced JavaFX 2.0 beta, describing an initial port of JavaFX Balls, also in beta stage at that time. Now I finally finish JavaFX Balls 3. Look ma, no design! I don’t pretend to be a designer, and the consequence is that when I make a mashup of animation, video and web, that’s the result. Get the source code here. I’ve added new layers of content...

Welcome java 7 part 3 -NIO 2 JSR 203   So like the coin project, in the NIO 2 there aren't unprecedented features in this e -specification, but now it's possible do some easier work I/Os in java. With the class java.io.Files are possible to perform several operations in simple mode. For that it needs and uses the java.io.file.Path, this interface represents files and...

After Oracle announced JavaFX 2.0's return to the Mac earlier this week, I spent some time porting our previously Windows-only JavaFX application back to the Mac. It was surprisingly easy. I found a few bugs, but they turned out to be quite easy to work around. Here's what to watch out for, if you are porting... 1. The Mac API does not use stage.setVisible(true) like the new JavaFX 2.0 Windows...

These are the days to be a Java UI developer! For so many years I have dreamt of Java’s return to the client side, and now – at long last – the developers at Oracle are making this dream come true.  Since the late nineties I have been developing a large number of both web based and swing based UIs, and it has always felt like a hard choice between two imperfect sets of...

Window size vs Scene size The javafx.scene.Scene class is responsible for rendering JavaFX 2.0 content. A scene can be placed into various containers, for example, javafx.stage.Stage or javafx.embed.swing.JFXPanel. The size of a container may be or may not be equal to the size of the scene attached to it. In some cases you might want to specify the content size, e.g. when showing a confirmation...

J2SE

  Was added to his package to facilitate applications which needs scalable processes. A feature is atomic variable. Variable atomic means that it cannot be divided -  it's like the S.O. with any resource (Driver CD, USB) cannot be divided but needs be used in many processes.              ...

The java.util.concurrent library added a little gem of a class, TimeUnit, which is well worth knowing a bit about. The class is used in java.util.concurrent to inform time-based methods how a given timing parameter should be interpreted. This class, however, can breathe readability back into an API that would otherwise be tough to eyeball. Consider an example from the Timing Framework project....
