Forum/Questions feature request to Github & Google


Hey Github/Google why don't you add a forum/questions feature just like other "wiki" and "issues" features. Today there is no way project adopters can ask direct questions to the project community without creating an issue and this will not scale, simply because many non-contributors do not read issues and answer's them. So eventually we are keeping big knowledge base out of helping others adopt or solve problems.

Lack of this feature simply discourages people asking questions fearing they are spamming the project with issues, and eventually they will end-up not using the product. And on the other hand if you add this feature it will simply create more value, increase user engagement, and addition of new knowledge base to your system.

You might also argue that why we need to duplicate this feature when there are other good sites like StackOverFlow for doing this, but adding or integrating this feature to your products is more natural as users will find it easy to ask questions being in the right context and these questions have higher chance of being discovered and answered very fast by the whole community compare to other places.

If creating a complete system is going to take a lot of time please consider integrating/buying existing solution like StackOverFlow etc.

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

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
