  Comparable and comparator in Java


Comparable and comparator are two similar interfaces used to compare objects in Java. When we want to sort a list of objects such as Employee or User etc, we may need to implement these interfaces to make them comparable as we want. However, there are some differences between comparable and comparator interface.ComparableA comparable object is capable of comparing itself with another object. The class itself must implements the java.lang.Comparable interface in order to be able to compare its in...

  Remote execute command in Java example


Frequently there is a need to logon to a remote system and run some commands or programs to get the output, many software can serve this purpose such as putty and gitshell.These software usually provide secure access to the remote system. But have you ever wondered what to do if you need to run commands on many different systems at the same time and get all these results back at a single place?

  Generate certificate from cert file in Java


A certificate is often used to prove the identity of a server. The certificate will contain information such as the subject and issuer of the certificate. It will also contain the validation date of the certificate. A certificate is often exported to an external cert file which is transferred over the internet. We will often see its use in SSL communication which provides secure communication between two entities. In this post, we will show how to read the data from an external certificate file ...

  Java vs F#


Dr Cliff Click of Azul Systems, specialists in manycore JVM systems, recently published a blog post about the performance of Java compared primarily to C and C++ but also discussing C# and .NET. Three of Cliff's comments are of particular interest:Under the heading "Places where C/C++ beats Java for obvious reasons":"Value Types, such as a 'Complex' type require a full object in Java." - Dr Cliff ClickWhat Cliff forgot to mention is that .NET also provides value types and a far more compell...

  Generate certificate in Java -- Self signed certificate


This is the first post in this series which I will show you how to generate SSL certificate in Java programmatically. Certificates are frequently used in SSL communication which requires the authentication of server to client. This is to make the client to trust that the server is actually the one it claims. Certificates are really important on the Internet. All HTTPS communications on the Internet need the server side to present their certificates signed by trusted CAs. The basic flow of a requ...

  Traditional recursion vs Tail recursion


Recursion is a frequently adopted pattern for solving some sort of algorithm problems which need to divide and conquer a big issue and solve the smaller but the same issue first. For example, calculating fibonacci  accumulating sum and calculating factorials. In these kinds of issues, recursion is more straightforward than their loop counterpart. Furthermore, recursion may need less code and looks more concise. For example, let's calculate sum of a set of numbers starting with 0 and st...

  Access control in Java -- doPrivileged


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...
