  • The reasons of this little project

    Recently I had a little problem on a Websphere application server. A JSP page running on this application server had a problem (a no ending loop). This was a bit hard to identify because noting permit to isolate on this server the pages running.
    To solve this lake of informations I realized a little Servletfilter which permit to monitor this.
    I propose you this little tool for exemple as a ServletFilter. I wish it would be useful to you.

  • Description

    Usually in software devellopement we use values liste that we take from “properties”, SQL tables or in the worst case, “in hard codding” in our application.

    As many people I had this problem ans I solve it by creating “Tables Memories”. It permits me to limit the access to the database (or file), to low the occupation memory by having just one request of these memories liste, and to simplify my code.

    This code is quite old and could be improved (use of the patern singleton instead of a full static classe, synchronize optimisation…). I use this in a huge number of project and I always report these modifications because I don’t have any performance or memories problems.


    During the cration of this componant I wanted to have the following functions also I simplify in maximum its use in a JSP page or a Servtel :

    • “Connection” sql connection outside bean
    • Do not reload the data if they are already in memory
    • Load of a liste from a select SQL : loadQuery(…)
    • Load of a list from a values liste : loadListe(…)
    • Read of the description associated to a code (String) : getValue(…)
    • Read of the description associated to a code (Combobox) : getListe(…)
    • Read of the description associated to a code (Radio Bouton) : getRadio(…)

  • JVMine – Minesweeper

    This small applet is a "minesweeper" clone, the goal of the game is very easy, you just have to discover and mark all the mines. To do this you have as option left clic which show you the land (you loose of there is a mine) and right clic which mark a mine (if the case is not discovered).

    For developpers all source code is avaible here

    i have also done a midlet version of this game and I think I am going to propose it to you soon.

    PS : My best score is in expert mode 153 sec.
