After a user resets a password, I want to force the user to change the password before she gets access to secured content. This is usually done with a servlet filter. But with Spring MVC, you can also use a HandlerInterceptor . According to Spring JavaDoc: HandlerInterceptor is basically similar to a Servlet 2.3 Filter, but in contrast to the latter it just allows custom pre-processing with the option of prohibiting the execution of the handler itself, and custom post-processing. Filters are more powerful, for example they allow for exchanging the request and response objects that are handed down the chain. Note that a filter gets configured in web.xml, a HandlerInterceptor in the application context. As a basic guideline, fine-grained handler-related preprocessing tasks are candidates...

Step 1: Repackage a web app as EAR A Java EE application is a multimodule Maven project. At the very least you'll need to package a WAR and an EAR. To get started, I'll simply re-package the simple webapp as an EAR. Create a directory named javaee-app Copy the webapp from here to javaee-app . Rename struts1app to webapp . Create pom.xml under javaee-app :
<project> <modelVersion>4.0.0</modelVersion>...Create a directory named ear under javaee-app . Create pom.xml under ear :
<project> <modelVersion>4.0.0</modelVersion>...Modify pom.xml in the webapp directory so that it looks like this:
<project> <modelVersion>4.0.0</modelVersion> ...Build with " mvn package " in the javaee-app directory. You can see that ear-1.0.ear is successfully generated in javaee-app/ear/target . Maven successfully resolves dependencies between the sub-projects....

I have long noticed that IE8 displays a "broken page" icon while showing my web pages, but didn't pay much attention. Since the world in general considers IE to be broken, it's not so unlogical for IE to see much of the world as broken. Until one day I noticed that the Google home page was not "broken". Then I thought may be I should fix my pages also. So I moused over the "broken page" icon, and this is what I saw: Compatibility View: websites designed for older browsers will often look better, and problems such as out-of-place menus, images, or text will be corrected. Very descriptive indeed! Older browsers? Such as Firefox 1.5? When it comes to MS products, I often had better...

If CSS3 border-image is properly supported, making a rounded corner box is very easy. You just need a round corner image like this: The following markup:
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN" ...would render like this (try it in Firefox 3.5 and Google Chrome): However, IE as of version 8.0 does not support border-image . So until border-image is reliably supported in all major browsers, we still have to rely on tried and true tricks to make it work. In general, I found three general categories of tricks to make rounded corners: Good old tables. This trick creates a table of 9 cells and uses the 8 cells on the perimeter to render the borders and rounded corners. The central cell is used for...

cURL is a command line tool for transferring files with URL syntax. The main purpose and use for cURL is to automate unattended file transfers or sequences of operations. It's really easy to see HTTP headers with curl:
C:\>curl --head http://www.google.com HTTP/1.0 ...or, headers and page together (dump headers to stdout):
$ curl --dump-header - http://www.google.com HTTP/...Download openssl from openssl.org:

The tags <c:if> The <c:if> tag may be used with or without body content:
<!-- Without body content, used to export vari...In my opinion, the version without body content is pretty much useless (the <c:set> tag is a lot more meaningful for this purpose). If body content exists, it is inserted into the page if the testCondition is true . Optional attributes var and scope may be specified. If var is specified, a variable whose name is the value of var is exported to the associated scope ( pageScope if no scope is specified). The type of the exported variable is Boolean and its value is the value of the testCondition . <c:choose>, <c:when>, <c:otherwise> These tags imitate the Java control structure if...else...

The CSS 2.1 spec has these definitions about the position property: static : The box is a normal box, laid out according to the normal flow. The 'top', 'right', 'bottom', and 'left' properties do not apply. relative : The box's position is calculated according to the normal flow (this is called the position in normal flow). Then the box is offset relative to its normal position. When a box B is relatively positioned, the position of the following box is calculated as though B were not offset. absolute : The box's position (and possibly size) is specified with the 'top', 'right', 'bottom', and 'left' properties. These properties specify offsets with respect to the box's containing block . Absolutely positioned boxes are taken out of the...
