This is a simple JSP custom tags library with tag body. Just like the JSF counterpart , it splits a string and repeats the body for each word, i.e., with this markup: <%@ taglib uri="http://custom.tag.com/demo" prefix... output: <html> <body> <p>Hello Tigger!</p> <p>H...

For some reason I don't know writing to files in Android is very complicated and tedious. Here is some code for those who might need it. Apps should write in the SD in the directory /Android/data/package_name/files/ so that it is deleted with the app uninstall. package randomname; import java.io.BufferedOutputStream; import java.io.File; import java.io.FileInputStream; import java.io.FileNotFoundException; import java.io.FileOutputStream; import java.io.FileWriter; import java.io.IOException; import java.io.OutputStream; import java.io.OutputStreamWriter; import java.nio.ByteBuffer; import android.content.Context; import android.os.Environment; import android.util.Log; public class FileIOLibrary { String packageName; boolean mExternalStorageAvailable = false; boolean mExternalStorageWriteable = false; FileIOLibrary(String packageNamep) { this.packageName=packageNamep; } public boolean isExternalStorageAvailable() { updateExternalStorageState(); return mExternalStorageAvailable; } public boolean isExternalStorageWritable() { updateExternalStorageState(); return mExternalStorageWriteable; } /** * writes the current state of SD card to the corresponding variables */ void updateExternalStorageState() {...

By default, tomcat uses an enhanced java.util.logging implementation called JULI, which can be configured at two different levels: Globally, with the ${catalina.base}/conf/logging.properties file. Per web application, with WEB-INF/classes/logging.properties . The configuration file is a normal Java properties file: Logging handlers are specified with the handlers property. handlers = 1catalina.org.apache.juli.FileHandler, ... The root logger can define its set of handlers using the .handlers property. .handlers = 1catalina.org.apache.juli.FileHandler,... A prefix may be added to handler names. The prefix starts with a digit and ends with a dot ( . ), for example: # 1catalina. is a prefix 1catalina.org.apache.j... System property replacement is performed for property values which contain ${systemPropertyName} . Each handler can have its own specific properties: 3manager.org.apache.juli.FileHandler.level = FINE ... Loggers can define their own...

When you run automated Android tests with Eclipse or from the command line, you get text output, which isn't good for reporting purposes. If you run a large set of test cases with automated build, the text report isn't very helpful. Fortunately, Android CTS generates test reports in XML with accompanying XSL to make it look nice in a browser. To run your own tests with Android CTS: Download Android CTS Make a new directory MyRepository under android-cts , alongside the existing repository directory. Copy host_config.xml from repository to MyRepository Create directory plans under MyRepository , add a test plan ( MyTests.xml ): <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <TestPla... Create directory testcases under MyRepository . Copy TestDeviceSetup.apk from repository/testcases to MyRepository/testcases Under MyRepository/testcases , create a test...

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...

A task that a Java developer does so frequently is to find out where a certain class can be found - to resolve compilation errors, classpath issues, or version conflicts of the same class introduced by multiple class loaders. A long while back I wrote a simple Perl script to perform the task. Later I was informed that there are Swing based Jar Browser and Jars Browser . Then, there are a couple of shell one-liners: # one liner 1 find -name "*.jar" -print0 | xarg... But all of them share the same problem: if a class is in a jar nested in another jar, it cannot be found. Such is the case for a class inside a jar under the WEB-INF/lib directory of a...

It's easiest to use the archetype plugin to start a new Maven project. I'll use struts 1 as example since it's not in the built-in archetypes for archetype:generate .

It generates a directory structure like this: struts1app struts1app/pom.xml struts1app/src... with a simple POM: <project xmlns="http://maven.apache.org/POM/4.0.0"... Create settings.xml in $HOME/.m2 , add Java.net repository for Java EE dependencies: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <setting... Add Java EE and Struts dependencies in pom.xml . Note that the Java EE dependency has scope provided , meaning that the web app container provides the jars, therefore we don't need to bundle them with our war fie. <project xmlns="http://maven.apache.org/POM/4.0.0"... Create a directory named java under main , create the Struts form and...

Sometimes it's necessary to make bulk updates to a bunch of files. This is a script I use to perform such task. In the example shown, I have to change all occurrences of GeneratorType to GenerationType and update the @Id annotation for all entity Java classes in the current directory due to the EJB 3.0 spec change. #!/bin/perl opendir(DIR, ".") || die "can't...
