  static nested and non-static nested class in Java

Nested classes are divided into two categories: static and non-static(inner). Nested classes that are declared static are simply called static nested classes. Non-static nested classes are called inner classes. Static class can be defined as : class OuterClass{ static class StaticNestedClass{ //OTHER STUFF } } Static nested classes are accessed using the enclosing class name: OuterClass.StaticNestedClass For example, to create an object for the static nested class, use this synta...

  Turn on SecurityManager in Java

SecurityManager in Java is to check whether the application codes can access some restricted resource such as file, socket etc. This can be used in applications which have high security requirements. With this feature turned on, our system resources can be secured with only permitted operations. When JVM starts, it will first check whether the SecurityManager is on by checking the system property java.security.manager, if it's on, then an instance of SecurityManager will be created and it can be...

  Check file readability in Java

File operation is quite platform dependent. Although Java is a cross platform programming language, the file operation in Java is also platform dependent. The obvious evidence is the file permission check. In Java, we can call canRead(), canWrite() and canExecutable() to check whether the program can read, write or execute the file specified. However, on Windows, when we call canRead() on a File object, we may get unexpected result. Actually, on Windows, when we call canRead() on a File object, ...

  Difference between ConcurrentHashMap and Hashtable

Both ConcurrentHashMap and Hashtable are Collection classes for storing key value pairs and they both provide fast element search with a supplied key. They have much in common. However, we will not discuss the similarities between them here, instead we will focus on the differences between them. ConcurrentHashMap and Hashtable are both thread safe. But the mechanism for thread safe is different between them. Hashtable is synchronized, it utilizes the synchronization mechanism; while ConcurrentHa...

  Android socket programming example

Socket is a kind of interface for different sides t communicate, it usually identified by an IP and a port. There are many server side software on a server and they would provide different service. Each server many create some sockets and bind them to some ports so that clients can listen to. Software on the Internet will exchange data though a bidirectional connection established. Each end of the connection has a socket created. In Java, Socket and ServerSocket are in java.net package, ServerSo...

  Should we use Abstract class or Interface?

When we write programs, we may often get into a situation where we don't know whether we should use Abstract class or Interface when we want to define an abstract object. These two are very similar and they are interchangeable. On Stackoverflow, this question is asked many times, it's related to many programming languages. Also in the official documentation of PHP regarding the Abstract class and Interface, people are arguing about this. To understand this question, we need to understand their d...

  Use cases of Java enumeration

JDK 1.5 introduces a new type -- enumeration. In Java, it's just a small feature, but it can bring us much convenience.Here we summarize some use cases of Java enumeration. 1. Constant Prior to JDK 1.5, we can define constant as public static final..., now we can use enumeration to group all constants in one enum variable and it also provides some useful functions. public enum Color {     RED, GREEN, BLANK, YELLOW   }  2.In Swit...
