Discovering CUBA's generic filter feature removes the burden from developers of developing home-grown filter implementations that are often not flexible enough. Read about the filter possibilities that come with CUBA out of the box.
Performance, Profiling, Monitoring, Continuous Delivery, Build Automation, Coding like James Gosling ... -> Topics discussed at JavaOne and Java South Africa in the recent weeks. I collected the highlights on these two conferences in my blogs.
A few decades after its birth, the Internet has exploded and now it has taken over the world. Because of this, web programming is become more prevalent by the day. For this reason, we have compiled a list of great articles from our fellow Geeks at Web Code Geeks.
The incredible amount of innovation that uses and builds upon standard Java/EE technologies is one the most important factors that keeps our ecosystem so uniquely strong. The annual Duke's Choice Awards is a small way of recognizing and encouraging such innovation. Every year a panel of judges gives out ten of these awards at JavaOne (in the interest of full disclosure I am one of those judges). Every year Java EE makes a strong showing at the awards and this year was no exception (in fact I'll share that Java EE makes an even stronger showing in the total number of nominees). In particular the following winners are worth highlighting on this humble blog.
UN/WFP School Subsidy Card: Thousands of students in developing countries lack access to adequate food, Egypt is sadly no exception. Egypt based consulting company e-Finance developed the United Nations??? World Food Program (UN/WFP) School Subsidy Card to help combat this problem. The project was developed for Egypt???s Ministry of Education. The project is now live as a pilot that helps 20,000 families in two poor cities. The project uses Java EE 7, Java SE 8, GlassFish 4 and NetBeans. The project is led by Mohammed Taman. Mohammed is an experienced architect, consultant, Morocco JUG member, Egypt JUG leader, JCP executive committee member and expert group member for multiple JSRs. He is an ardent advocate for Java EE and has been a very active participant in the Adopt-A-JSR, Adopt-OpenJDK, and FishCAT programs. Mohammed's work was highlighted at JavaOne, including in the Java EE portion of the keynote.
Here???s a Eclipse command that???s pretty handy: Select Enclosing Element (key binding:Shift+Alt+Up on Linux).
Every time you hit the key combination, it expands the selection to the enclosing element. In this example, it starts with the method selector, and expands to include the parameters, the receiver, the statement, the block, the method, ??? all the way up to the entire compilation unit.
Today I finished reading the Beginning NetBeans IDE: For Java Developers Book: a masterpiece written by Geertjan Wielenga, a product manager in the NetBeans Team, and published by Apress on August 29th, 2015.

It???s been years (8 years to be exact as of this writing) that I've been involved in various forums such as (forums.asp.net), (codeasp.net/forums), (aspsnippets.com/forums), (msforums.ph), (aspforums.net/forums), (forums.xamarin.com) and most recently at C# corner forums. I???ve helped resolve hundreds or maybe thousands of questions from simple to very complex issues.
Being in the community is awesome because I get the chance to learn and help fellow developers around the world. Most of the time I???ve encountered questions that are not very clear, duplicate questions and even more questions that are very general in nature. So I thought I would share some of my thoughts on the topic and provide some guidance for those developers looking for a solution to their problems.
