While log is essential, but developers have to log smartly. Because if we don't put log smartly, you may not get what you want while debugging or you may get too m...

Previously we have introduced how Java performs permission check to protect resource access. What if sometimes we need to give some class the temporary access to some resource which it initially doesn't have? AccessController provides six doPrivileged methods to fulfill this requirement. These six methods have below signatures : static T doPrivileged(PrivilegedAction action)static T doPrivileged(PrivilegedAction action, AccessControlContext context)static T doPrivileged(PrivilegedExceptionA...

Previously we showed you how to turn on SecurityManager in Java. After SecurityManager is turned on, a series of permission checks will be applied on the code you are calling in your application to protect some resources against malicious access such as files, sockets etc. To perform these permission checks, a set of Permissions will be created and checked using the AccessController. The AccessController has three purposes : To decide whether an access to a critical system resource is to be all...

  Good ways to "insult" a computer scientist


Computer scientists are a group of people who are hard working and talented. They build the theory foundation for information and computation and they usually work on something difficult to understand. Many computer algorithms are created by computer scientists. In our mind, they are those people we admire most. But sometimes we also want to make fun of them or "insult" them. What are good ways to "insult" them? Here we share some.
