    Windows Ad Blocking

    For firefox users, we have adblock extension which does a damm good job by blocking ads. For long time I was searching for similar alternative for Internet Explorer.Finally the search was over with HOSTS.

    What it does …

    The Hosts file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. This file is loaded into memory (cache) at startup, then Windows checks the Hosts file before it queries any DNS servers, which enables it to override addresses in the DNS. This prevents access to the listed sites by redirecting any connection attempts back to the local machine. Another feature of the HOSTS file is its ability to block other applications from connecting to the Internet, providing the entry exists.

    JavaScript Logging

    If you spend much time working with JavaScript, there will eventually come a day when you need to know the value of a variable (or an object’s field) as the execution of the script progresses, or why a script terminates unexpectedly. In simple scripts, you can accomplish this with JavaScript’s alert() function, which instructs the browser to create a dialog box with the argument set as the box’s caption. The message can be anything that helps you understand your script’s operation.

    A nice article abt the javascript logging is avilable at A List Apart



    JAG – Java Application Generator

    JAG is an application that creates complete, working J2EE applications. It is intended to alleviate much of the repetitive work involved in creating such applications, while providing a means of quality assurance that the applications created will be of consistent quality.

    One of the strengths of JAG is that it delivers a complete working
    project – it’s more than just another code generator! The projects
    generated by JAG have the following features:

    • A full, professional quality project infrastructure: The generated applications build with Apache Ant
      and have a flexible, well-organised directory structure.
    • By choosing from JAG’s extendable framework of ‘application
      templates’, you have control to select the most appropriate application
    • Best-of-breed J2EE architecture: The various application
      architectures are derived from a real-world appreciation of industry
      best practices.
      The latest application template offers:

      • A strict enforcement of presentation-layer
        separation using interfaces to enable the greatest flexibility in
        deployment scenarios
      • EJB and Hibernate features such as relations.
      • J2EE ‘BluePrint’ patterns such as Session Façade, Service Locator, Business Delegate, Fast Lane Reader and Value Objects.
      • A pluggable service tier: ServiceLocator or Spring Framework.
      • A pluggable business/persistence tier: EJB2/3 or Hibernate 2/3
    • A presentation layer (web application) that takes advantage of the latest features of Struts,
      such as declarative client- and server-side user input validations, and clean, modular JSPs using Struts and the display tag library.
    • Extensive use of Java 5 Annotations or XDoclet
      in the generated application means that the complexity of the
      code base is vastly reduced, increasing maintainability. Through the
      use of XDoclet tags in the generated Java code, many of the
      JAG-generated classes
      serve as a basis for further automatic code generation at build-time!

    Applications generated by JAG are intended as a solid first step in a
    project’s development phase. Using the generated application as a base,
    development can be undertaken such as coding business logic into the
    session beans, customising the web application, etc.
