Maven is a powerful yet complex tool. When I started learning Maven, the first obstacle was, of course, its complexity. The second, was the lack of documentation that can get me off the ground quickly. This tutorial is an attempt to create a pragmatic guide that aims to get you familiar with Maven in the quickest way possible. The main theme is to get you on some hands on experience to start out and lead you through the creation of a simple Java EE project as quickly as possible. Instead of trying to give you a good read, I try to get you on the journey right away. The topics are roughly ordered by the logical sequence but you can jump around in any way...

This error happened when I loaded a JSF page, using Apache MyFaces. From the stack trace it looked like the XML parser failed, but in reality the runtime was not able to load the class specified in the handler-class element - a typo in the class name! That's the price you pay for wiring together components with XML! This was the stack trace: Caused by: org.xml.sax.SAXException: Error Handlin...

I built a very basic JSF application and deployed to Tomcat 7.0.22, but it failed with this error: Caused by: java.lang.ClassFormatError: Absent Code... That looks weird and I wasn't able to find a sensible explanation! So I copied the jsf-api-2.1.jar , which was downloaded from the java.net Maven repository by Maven, into a temp folder. And tested it with this simple program: public class ClassFormatErrorTest { public ... I also copied servlet-api.jar from Tomcat's lib folder to the temp folder. Sure enough it failed with the same error: C:\tmp>java -cp .;jsf-api-2.1.jar;servlet-api.jar ... But when I replaced the javax.faces.webapp.FacesServlet class with one I compiled from source, the error disappears! Conclusions: The jar file jsf-api-2.1.jar from java.net Maven repository is good for compilation only (cannot be used...

The Android unit test framework is based on JUnit 3 , not JUnit 4. Test cases have to extend junit.framework.TestCase or a subclass (such as android.test.InstrumentationTestCase ). Tests are identified by public methods whose name starts with test , not methods annotated with @Test (as in JUnit 4). An Android test suite is packaged as an APK, just like the application being tested. To create a test package, first you need to identify the application package it is testing. Google suggests to put the test package source in a directory named tests/ alongside the src/ directory of the main application. At runtime, Android instrumentation loads both the test package and the application under test into the same process. Therefore, the tests can invoke methods on...

From Android Developers : You can use a third party JAR in your application by adding it to your Eclipse project as follows: In the Package Explorer panel, right-click on your project and select Properties . Select Java Build Path , then the tab Libraries . Press the Add External JARs... button and select the JAR file. Alternatively, if you want to include third party JARs with your package, create a new directory for them within your project and select Add Library... instead. It is not necessary to put external JARs in the assets folder. Apparently, this is not working for me! I added a libs folder, put the external jar in libs . The project built fine, but the APK does not include the...

You get this error when you are trying to compile with JDK 1.5 (class version 49), but your dependency was compiled by JDK 1.6 (class version 50). Check the JAVA_HOME setting, and make sure it's pointing to JDK 1.6. On Unix, use set | grep -i java_home On Windows, just set JAVA_HOME
