You can customize Tomcat error page with error code: <error-page> <error-code>404</error-code> ... or Java exception type: <error-page> <exception-type>java.lang.Throwab... Either error-code or exception-type is required, but not both. There's no way to aggregate error codes, such as: <!-- This does not work! --> <error-page> ... Customizing error pages is about the only way to suppress the default stack trace in Tomcat in case of an unhandled exception.

Some innocent looking JavaScript may cause a fatal error in a Facelet page. For example: <script type="text/javascript"> if (items.lengt... or <script type="text/javascript"> // jQuery code ... Because Facelet is strict XML, therefore, < and > must be escaped. There are several ways to deal with this: Do not embed JS code directly in the page. Put the code in .js files and include it in the page with the src attribute. Put JS code in a CDATA section: <h:outputScript target="head"> <![CDATA... Use XML entities: <script type="text/javascript"> // jQuery code ...

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......

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...

Install APK with adb : $ platform-tools/adb install out/target/product/ge... Error message in logcat: D/PackageParser( 60): Scanning package: /data/ap... The error was created by android.content.pm.PackageParser , which compares the android:minSdkVersion and android:targetSdkVersion attributes of the uses-sdk element of AndroidManifest.xml in the APK file against the SDK version of the device or emulator. The SDK version on the device has to be greater than that required by android:minSdkVersion . In my case, since I built the package with AOSP, the target emulator has to be AOSP also. This is the relavant section in AndroidManifest.xml : <uses-sdk android:minSdkVersion="AOSP" ... And the relevant section in android.content.pm.PackageParser : if (minCode != null) { if (!minCode.equals(...

When I used AssetManager to open an XML file in a ContentProvider : getContext().getAssets().openFd("demo.xml"); it failed with this exception: java.io.FileNotFoundException: This file can not b... It turned out that openFd only works for asset files that are not compressed. It works on media files such as .mp3 , .jpg , .wmv etc., which are not compressed during packaging. XML files are compressed by dedault, causing openFd to fail. An Android ticket was opened on this issue. Till that is fixed, the workaround is to add an exclusion in build.xml : <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <pro...
