  Address of a Java Object


In conventional java programming, you will never need address or location of a java object from memory. When you discuss about this in forums, the first question raised is why do you need to know the address of a java object? Its a valid question. But always, we reserve the right to experiment. Nothing is wrong in exploring uncharted areas.I thought of experimenting using a little known class from sun package. Unsafe is a class that belongs to sun.misc package. For some of you the package might ...

  W3C Pronounces HTML5 Standard Complete, Changing Web Development Forever


As a gesture of highest level of endorsement, W3C – World Wide Web consortium has published its recommendation for HTML5. A follow-up to HTML4 - HTML5 underwent a continuous process of development all these years, and recently, the standard version was finalized after years spent on adding features, tweaking and iterating.

  PHP Security


1. IntroductionWriting PHP applications is pretty easy. Most people grasp the syntax rather quickly and will within short time be able to produce a script that works using tutorials, references, books, and help forum forums like the one we have here at PHP Freaks.

  Generating CSR using Java


A CSR(Certificate Signing Request) is a kind of request generated by an application and is to be sent to a Certificate Authority to create a signed certificate which can be distributed. It usually contains certificate information such as subject name, public key info and signature info. In Java, keytool can be used to generate a certificate request with option -certreq.  But sometimes if an application wants to create a CSR programmatically, keytool will not do a favor, instead you should u...

  Introduction to OAuth (in Plain English)


Last week we talked about giving away your passwords and how you should never do it.  When a website wants to use the services of another—such as Bitly posting to your Twitter stream—instead of asking you to share your password, they should use OAuth instead. OAuth is an authentication protocol that allows you to approve one application interacting with another on your behalf without giving away your password. This is a quick guide to illustrate, as simply as possible, how OAu...

  Those famous Emacs users


I don't think using Emacs can improve one's programming skills, I don't think some famous people used Emacs before can provide something, either. But these famous people encouraged me to learn Emacs when I wanted to give it up. Here I created a list of famous Emacs users. Most of people in this list are not famous because they developed or used Emacs, but they are famous and also use Emacs. Joe Armstrong -- Erlang's author In The Setup, Joe mentioned that "I write books using XML markup in emacs...

  The worst program I ever worked on


Most contract jobs fade pretty quickly in memory after the work is done, but some you remember for the rest of your life. This is one of the latter variety. This happened long ago, at a (fair sized) company that shall remain nameless. The software was a chunk of code that had been maintained by a single guy that had been fired recently and was a core component of a commercial system. So far nothing unusual, companies tend to find out that they have a piece of critical knowledge in one head all ...

  I am a programmer


Admitting that may be career suicide, or possibly it will cost me dearly because 'software engineers' are raking in the big bucks these days, but the fact of the matter is that I'm a programmer. It's what I do best and it is the job title that I associate with most because it feels as though the biggest chunk of me will always be most likely to blurt that out when people ask me what my job is. That I like to program definitely helps.So instead of choosing some fancy title for what it is that I d...
