  A return to good code


Stop doing this:public boolean foo() { if (true) {   return true;   }  else {   return false;   }}It always amazes me when I dig into an open source project, and I see code written by supposed experts, and reviewed by seasoned professionals, and nobody slaps the wrists of the developer who shoves return statements right in the middle of a method.Tell me, how hard is it to do this:public boolean foo() {   boolean flag = true;  ...

  10 reasons why Dart is cooler than JavaScript


Dart is a new programming language from Google and after coding JavaScript for over one year now, I immediately felt in love with it. Coming from the Java world I had a good bunch of things I had to learn before I could use JavaScript. Some people say, you need to dig deep into JavaScript, otherwise you are not allowed to speak about the pros and cons of a language. I am not a JavaScript Ninja. But I strongly believe a programming language should be easy to learn, easy to understand and s...

  TIOBE : What's the future of C#?


TIOBE released the programming language index for August 2012, the top 3 programming languages are still C, Java and Objective-C. Objective-C still performs well after it ranked 3rd place last month, it's still rising. Is there any possibilty Object-C will overtake Java in the near future? However, Microsoft's C# doesn't look so good. C# is generally recognized as the enterprise language with most modern and expressive features available today and C# has shown more downward trends in the past an...

  10 Object Oriented Design principles Java programmer should know


Object Oriented Design Principles are core of OOPS programming but I have seen most of Java programmer chasing design patterns like Singleton pattern , Decorator pattern or Observer pattern but not putting enough attention on Object oriented analysis and design or following these design principles. I have regularly seen Java programmers and developers of various experience level who either doesn't heard about these OOPS and SOLID design principle or simply doesn't know what benefits a particular...

  Maybe we need //Comment comment


Do we need comment in our programs? Depends, if we can write a program which can clearly tell s the reader what the program does, then we had better to avoid unnecessary comments. However, if the program we develop is complex enough and it involves some uncommon logic which needs more explanation, then we have to add comment and make sure the comment we add can correctly tell the readers what we do. The worst scenarios is not you forget or you don't want to add comment, it's that you add comment...

Next picture shows the Top 20 programming languages in April 2011 from TIOBE. From the picture, we can find the most popular programming languages are the different representatives of programming language styles. And some of them are popular because the platforms which use this programming language is very popular.For example C#, because of Microsoft, this language is used in .Net platform. Many users are using this programming language.Also, Java, C and C+ are the top 3 languages in he world. T...

  TIOBE : Objective-C overtakes C++


TIOBE recently released the programming community index for July. From the index,we can find that the biggest change is that Objective-C overtakes C++ as the 3rd most popular language among programmers. Because of the popularity of iPhone and iPad, Objective-C is used by more and more mobile developers who want to develop apps for Apple products. Also, many developers are willing to develop apps for Apple since they can gain more profit on Apple platform than on Android platform.C++ is mainly us...

  Finding selected checkbox items in a JSF dataTable


This is one of those problems that I couldn’t find a complete example for when I needed it, so hopefully this will save somebody else the extra time it took me to piece it together. We frequently need to have data tables in our UI, and allow the user to select a subset of those items for action. In JavaServer Faces, this means having a DataTable, each row having its own checkbox. But when the action is triggered, how to we find which items the user has selected. The first step is to add a...

  3 meanings of Stack


We may frequently see stack when we read programming books. But many times we may be confused about the different meanings of it. This term actually has three common meanings. Here we explain the three different meanings of Stack in programming. 1. Data structure The first meaning of Stack defines a method for storing data. Its feature is LIFO9Last In First Out). In this data structure, data are accumulated level by level. The data last put in is added at the top of the stack. When using the dat...
