HTTP basic authentication is just Base64 encoded user name and password passed in as the Authorization header. So the following code works: // encode user name and password String credent... However, since JDK 1.2, there's a more Java friendly way: Authenticator.setDefault(new Authenticator() { ... Test code: import java.net.*; import java.io.*; pub...

Parsing XML in Java is really simple: import java.io.*; import javax.xml.parsers.Docu... The parser implementation details are hidden behind the JAXP API. In case you want to know which parser implementation is used, this is what the JavaDoc for DocumentBuilderFactory.newInstance says: Use the javax.xml.parsers.DocumentBuilderFactory system property. Use the properties file " lib/jaxp.properties " in the JRE directory. This configuration file is in standard java.util.Properties format and contains the fully qualified name of the implementation class with the key being the system property defined above. The jaxp.properties file is read only once by the JAXP implementation and it's values are then cached for future use. If the file does not exist when the first attempt is made to read from it, no further attempts are made to...

In this note I'll show you how to create and package a JSP custom tag. The purpose of this tag is to display a random splash image for a home page, among a set of images. We should be able to add or delete candidate splash images from the WAR archive without the need to change the JSP. This is the intended use of the tag: <%@ taglib uri="http://custom.tag.com/demo" prefix... In the above example you provide a set of images named splash*.png (e.g., splash1.png, spalsh2.png, ...), and the tag will pick a random one to display when the JSP is rendered. Let's get started. I'll use Maven for this purpose. Create the standard Maven directory structure ./pom.xml ./src ./src/main ./src/main/jav... pom.xml <project xmlns="http://maven.apache.org/POM/4.0.0"... SplashTag.java package tagdemo; import java.util.ArrayList......
