  How Java Application Developers Can Build Secure Internet Based Apps?


There are few compiled solution tested by experts to guide Java application development and maintenance team how they can start safe journey on Internet. Strong encryption, wise passwords, secure hardware are few of the tech tools that should be used by Java app development team to secure their Internet based apps.   The Internet is most amazing yet most risky platform where nobody knows either they are doing safe transaction on Internet or there is some dog watching out for data packets t...

  ConcurrentHashMap vs Collections.synchronizedMap()


ConcurrentHashMap and Collections.synchronizedMap() both provide thread-safe operations of collections of data. They are used in multithreaded programs to provide both thread safety and performance improvements. In many cases, we can use either of them. But the realization of thread safety is different for these two implementations. ConcurrentHashMap will create an HashEntry[] array internally to store the elements passed in from a Map, while Collections.synchronizedMap() will return a Synchroni...

  NIO vs IO in Java


Java 1.4 provides a new API for handling IO -- NIO. This is a non-blocking and buffer oriented IO API. Below are main differences between the NIO and IO in Java. IO NIO Stream oriented Buffer oriented Blocking IO Non-blocking IO N/A Using selector Stream oriented vs Buffer oriented The main difference is that IO is stream oriented where the data is read byte by byte and the data will not be buffered normally.This means there is no pointer to move forward and backward in the stream. I...

  Different types of keystore in Java -- JKS


JKS is Java Keystore, a proprietary keystore type designed for Java. It can be used to store private keys and certificates used for SSL communication, it cannot store secret keys however. The keytool shipped with JDKs cannot extract private keys stored on JKS. This type of keystore usually has an extension of jks. Next we will show how to operate the JKS keystore with pure Java code. Create JKS keystore The simplest method to create a JKS keystore to create an empty keystore. We can first get an...

  Are older people better programmers?


Peter Knego states something interesting: “It's official: developers get better with age. And scarcer.”. He uses reputation and other metrics from StackOverflow to corroborate his point. His summary is: Number of coders drops significantly with age. Top developer numbers, at age 27, drop by half every 6-7 years.Developers in their 40s answer roughly twice as much and ask half the questions compared to colleagues in their 20s. It seems younger generation learns and older generation teache...

  Only fast languages are interesting


If this isn’t a Zawinski quote, it should be. I have avoided the JVM my entire life. I am presently confronted with problems which fit in the JVM; JVM libraries, concurrency, giant data: all that good stuff. Rather than doing something insane like learning Java, I figured I’d learn me some Clojure. Why not? It’s got everything I need: JVM guts, lispy goodness; what is not to love? Well, as it turns out, one enormous, gaping lacuna is Clojure’s numerics performance. Let’s say you w...

  Implementation of +,-,*,/ with bitwise operator


There is a question asked on Stackoverflow : Divide a number by 3 without using *,/,+,-,% operators. This question is an Oracle interview question. Some people give excellent answers. You can go there and take a look. Usually we need to use bitwise operators to do this kind of implementations. Here I want to show you ways to implement +,-,*,/ with bitwise operators. A bitwise operation operates on one or more bit patterns or binary numerals at the level of their individual bits. It is a fast, pr...

  What does super.clone() do?


Object class has a protected clone() method declared to make it possible for all classes make a clone of itself when needed. The clone() is often used when a new instance of the class is needed while at the same time to maintain the same state as the original object. Any class which wants to have clone enabled has to implement the marker interface Cloneable. If a class which implements Cloneable doesn't override the Object.clone() method, the Object.clone() method will be called to just make a b...

  A HTTPS client and HTTPS server demo in Java


In this post, I will create a HTTPS server and HTTPS client demo which can establish HTTPS communication between a server and a client using Java. This should be very useful when we want to test our understanding about SSL communication. We will use both a detailed SSL client and a simple HttpsURLConnection as the HTTPS client. Before creating the actual HTTPS server and HTTPS client, we first need to generate the keystore and truststore to be used by the server and client. To generate the keyst...

  Different types of keystore in Java -- BKS


BKS is a keystore format provided by the popular third party Java cryptographic library provider -- BouncyCastle. It is a keystore similar to the JKS provided by Oracle JDK.  Before starting to use BKS, the BouncyCastle provider has to be downloaded and installed. To download the provider, please go to BouncyCastle download page. The provider can be installed by adding an entry in the java.security file. security.provider.N=org.bouncycastle.jce.provider.BouncyCastleProvider N means the pr...
