This blog describes how to build both, a 64-bit and a 32-bit version of OpenJDK 8 on a plain, vanilla WindowsXP 64-bit operating system using only free (as in free beer) tools. body { font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 10pt; } caption.my { font-weight: bold; margin: 0px 0px 10px 0px; } span.update { font-weight: bold; color: maroon...

Concentrating on Task in Hand (similar to Mylyn) in NetBeans IDE Often we work on fixing a bug or developing an enhancement for an open source project maintained over a period of many years and having hundreds of source code files.  usually we need a handful of 5 to 10 source files to fix the bug or to add new enhancement.  The project explorer provided by IDE's like NetBeans IDE show...

With the release of version 6.01, VisualLangLab can support all -- present & future -- JVM languages.  VisualLangLab's approach of composing parsers at runtime by using combinator functions instead of generating code (as other parser generators do) enables these parsers to be embedded into a host program in any JVM language. Eschewing code generation also eliminates all host-language...

Project NBTaskFocus makes the automatic tracking of your opened editor files available in its alpha version.  It provides two panels named 'Task Explorer' to see your tasks and the activation state of the task, and 'Task Details' to see your tracked opened file context.  As soon as you open any file in editor of NetBeans IDE it is added to the activated task as its context. ...

It's been several years since the book Filthy Rich Clients by Chet Haase and Romain Guy was published back in 2008. After reading the book I became a big fan of the Timing Framework that Chet posted at the timingframework project at java.net. Chet had elegantly solved a tricky problem—controlling the timing of animations. But, woe is me, I developed Eclipse plug-ins and Chet's code was...

Open Source

I've just left a meeting where the PM congratulated the team because the customer accepted a product release that was made with three weeks in advance of the original plan. First, thank to the developers' team. Second, thank to the good development process (people and process are always the important things, more than technology). Third, thank to libraries and software factory, including...

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.              ...

GUI

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...

Databases

The movement towards digital records is generating exponential amounts of data, tremendously valuable data. But building a system to manage that data and extract value from it requires acceptance of a paradox; the system needs to be flexible and tolerant, while simultaneously enforcing structure and standards. This is hard. Many of us have felt the pain of Master Data Management (MDM). In large...

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...

We are now success put Cimande to Maven.Java.net, but of course, because this is our first deployment, so there are bugs that we fix, but hopefully we will fix it shortly, because 55 kids (highschool) waiting for those, and several univ student waiting to start using it.  Since the blog posting, we found a bugs in dbunit in our code, but that wont stop me to blog here. U can try our cimande-...

Web Services and XML

For the purpose of creating a nice API for my new project Caligo (more on this in a future blog post), I was looking for a simple solution to access REST web service in Scala. My requirement was simple: access an HTTP web service, and exchange data with him using the JSON format. You can read the full story here and get the gist of the basic implementation: http://aloiscochard.blogspot.com/2011...
