Suppose that I have an email field annotated with: @NotEmpty(message="Please enter email address") ... Bean validation will trigger two errors when no email address is entered: the email field is empty an empty email field is not a valid email address Displaying both errors to the user with <form:errors> would be redundant and confusing: <%@ taglib uri="http://www.springframework.org/tag... This is how to display the first error only: <spring:bind path="emailAddress"> <c:if test="$...

Mapping Java objects to Jackson JSON is pretty simple. But if you name a JSON field wrong, you'll get the "Unrecognized field ... (Class ...), not marked as ignorable" error. The rule for mapping a Java bean attribute name to a JSON field name is: lower all leading capital letters until the first lower case letter . For example, this Java class: package com.example; public class Person { ... maps to this JSON string: { "firstName": "Jane", "lastName": "... Test code: package com.example; import java.net.URL; ...

My problem is simple: in my XML data, a timestamp is provided as a long integer (number of milliseconds since the "the epoch"). When I do XSLT, I want to display it as a readable string, such as "Mon Nov 01 18:08:48 CDT 2010". After hours of struggle, I found: It's not so easy to get the job done with JDK 1.6 There are tons of garbage on the web in this space (suggestions, code snippets that simply don't work) Simple Xalan extension functions was the only resource that's somewhat informative. Even there some of the examples don't work. Below is a list of what worked and what didn't. This works: <xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" xmlns:xsl="h... This does not (providing long value to Date constructor): <xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" xmlns:xsl="h......

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...

This code snippet import java.util.*; public class UncheckedCast ... fails with a compilation error and a warning: $ javac -Xlint:unchecked UncheckedCast.java Unc... Because List<String> is not a reifiable type, the Java Runtime does not have enough information to verify the type or do the type casting. This is fixed by changing List<String> to List<?> (or to the raw type List ): public static void main(String[] args) { Ob...

This is an odd-ball content provider in that it doesn't provide database records, but provides a resource as a stream. It can be used to provide media files or XML resources.

The PHP function strval returns the string value of a variable. It does the same thing as casting a variable to string, or automatic conversion where string is expected. Conversion rules: Type String Value Boolean TRUE '1' Boolean FALSE '' (empty string) integer of float string representing the number Array The string 'Array' Object Result of __toString() if defined, error otherwise Resource 'Resource id #n' , where n is a number assigned to the resource. NULL '' (empty string) Example: <?php set_error_handler(function($errno, $errst... Results: bool(true) --------------------- strval: '1'...
