I was looking over some old stuff, and found JDistill, a byte-code reduction program I wrote in 1998. Although it won't work unchanged on today's class files, and its copyright status is murky, I thought that the article I wrote might still have some interest. Here it is, with only minor edits. JDistill, a program to shrink Java packages Éamonn McManus <emcmanus@opengroup.org> 3...

ObjectAID is the first UML tool you may actually use; I know I should talk about its features or something - but the real reason you may actually use this application is that it is Fast. 1. Run the wizard to create a new diagram 2. Drag and Drop your classes into the diagram 3. I have found the "auto image" setting helpful so it writes out an image (PNG,GIF,etc..) every time you make a...

This article is an extract from the upcoming book Jenkins: The Definitive Guide, to be published in the coming months with O'Reilly.. One of the more interesting plugins to emerge over the last few months is the Build Pipeline plugin, written by the folks at Centrum Systems. The Build Pipelines plugin takes the idea of build promotion further, and helps you design and monitor deployment...

Happy new year 2011.   It has been a while since a blog in this forum.  I worked on other technologies that are not related to Java, so I didn't post into this site.  For now, I think, I'll post any new articles that can be related to programmation, mostly java.  What do you think ?   I want to talk about Hosting your git repositories.  I know, that there are few...

  Tracking Artifact Licenses - Why is this Hard? Tracking licenses of third-party artifacts is not one of those tasks that get developers excited. With more interesting problems to solve than legal issues, it is not usually high on the priority list for most teams to deal with licenses during active development, so more often than not, this is left as one of the final steps before...

(I started cross-posting blogs to my own website.) I was working on Hudson yesterday which led me to develop this little tool called Bridge method injector. When you are writing a library, there are various restrictions about the kind of changes you can make, in order to maintain binary compatibility. One such restriction is an inability to restrict the return type. Say in v1 of your library...

I simply hate that "mvn eclipse:eclipse" does not generate project files for Maven projects that have POM packaging. Yes I know that I can simply create a Default Eclipse project on the folder but why do I have to do this action many time when the target is to avoid to repeat task? So I hacked into and "fixed" it. That was simple. What is not is to understand reason...

 In front of hundreds of guests from the economy sector, the political sector as well as the Information and Communications sector (ITK) the 'Initiative for Small and Medium Sized Businesses' awarded the Innovation Prize IT 2010 during the NORD/LB forum at the CeBit for the best IT innovations of the year. Micromata came third in the Open Source category with its Java API for KML - JAK. The...

JSR-276 is targeted at IDE vendors and the JSF component library vendors who depend on them for exposing their components to developers. The idea of JSR-276 is to let JSF component library vendors provide a far richer set of descriptive data about their components so that JSR-276 compliant tools can expose that data to the users. Examples of such data include: What kinds of components are...

A few months ago, I had one of those unpleasant format conversion jobs. I had about 1,000 multiple choice questions in RTF format and needed to import them into Moodle. RTF is, as file formats go, somewhere between the good and the evil. It looks like one should be able to write a parser for it, but that seems like a dreary task. The miracle of open source came through for me, though, in the...

Mark Reinhold announced today that the JDK 7 / JavaSE 7 project has slipped once again: mid-2011 without Jigsaws and Lambdas, late 2012 for JavaSE 8 with those. The delay (or some other bad news like dropping features) was already expected by anyone who tracks the project. But really, how big and bad is this delay? As a big enthusiast of both Jigsaw and Lambdas - and as a tech writer who just...

If you want to work for DropBox, they have an interesting programming test which solution must be submitted together with the CV. I’m not considering a position at DropBox, but their test was too fun to ignore: an interesting challenge in algorithms, and another opportunity to exercise JavaFX as any geometric problem surely deserves some GUI. (Don’t read this blog if you actually plan...

NetBeans

 I feel a bit guilty saying bad things about Apache Ant. It's free, it's available everywhere, and a lot of volunteers have put a lot of work into making it what it is. You can very quickly and easily make a build file for simple Java projects. But. It seems to have been more accreted than designed, and if you try to use the core system to accomplish...
