Hi, I'm using the code posted on GitHub, but I can't send messages. I've configured the username and password in YahooMailService and in EmailService. The test were successful but I have no mail in my inbox :S. I'd appreciate any help.

JPA 2 new feature @ElementCollection explained

@ElementCollection is new annotation introduced in JPA 2.0, This will help us get rid of One-Many and Many-One shitty syntax.

Example 1: Stores list of Strings in an Entity

@Entity
public class Users implements Serializable {

    private static final long serialVersionUID = 1L;
    @Id
    @GeneratedValue(strategy = GenerationType.AUTO)
    private Long id;
@ElementCollection
    private List<String> certifications = new ArrayList<String>();

    public Long getId() {
        return id;
    }

    public void setId(Long id) {
        this.id = id;
    }

    public List<String> getCertifications() {
        return certifications;
    }

    public void setCertifications(List<String> certifications) {
        this.certifications = certifications;
    }
..
}

        Users u = new Users();
        u.getCertifications().add("Sun Certified Java Programmer");
        em.persist(u);

Generated Tables

   Users
Column --> ID
    Row             1

Validating CSV Files

What is CsvValidator ?
  A Java framework which validates any CSV files something similar to XML validation using XSD.

Why should I use this ?
  You don't have to use this and in fact its easy to write something your own and also checkout its source code for reference.

Why did I write this ?
  Some of our projects integrate with third party application which exchanges information in CSV files so I thought of writing a generic validator which can be hooked in multiple projects or can be used by QA for integration testing.

What is the license clause ?
GNU GPL v2

Are there any JUnit test cases for me checkout ?
 Yes, source

How to integrate in my existing project ?

Just add the Jar which can be downloaded from here CsvValidator.jar and you are good.

Instantiate CsvValidator constructor which takes these 3 arguements

         // filename is the the file to be validated and here is a sample         // list - defines all the fields in the above csv file ( a field has index, type, isOptional, rege…

ArrayList vs LinkedList vs HashSet Performance Comparision

ConclusionsInserting & Reading sequentially from Collection prefer LinkedList/ArrayListInserting & Reading/Deleting by Search/equals from Collection prefer HashSetInserting, ArrayList & LinkedList performs best while HashSet takes double the timeReading, HashSet performs best while ArrayList & LinkedList are marginally lessDeleting, HashSet performs 10 times better than ArrayList & ArrayList performs 4 times better than LinkedList. LinkedList is slow because of sequencial search Bottom line : unless you are not going to iterate using for(Integer i : list ) then prefer HashSet
