About Rakesh.A

Rakesh Reddy
As the URL and other parts of this blog says, I am Rakesh.A, a techie form Hyderabad, India. I am working for coMakeIT, Hyderabad as a Sr. Software Engineer, that's about me in short.
How I ended up in this profession? - Well when I was doing my schooling I never thought I'll be into this profession, infact I wasn't that interested in Information Technology/Software Development, so never concentrated on it even after my parents stressed to get into it. After couple of years, I saw myself doing the same. And now I can't even think of myself being in a different profession. Anything I can do with whole heart, that's only PROGRAMMING/DEVELOPMENT.
As every student who got into this profession, I felt my FIRST LOVE with 'C language', and I love coding in C. Then I started learning Object Oriented Programming and got attracted to 'C++ language', but it was 'JAVA' in which I saw my soul mate. That's it I got married to it and settled. I've been working on various Java Technologies since I started my career, and I love to program in Java. When ever I develop an application, I feel like an Artist marvel about his Art work, funny right :), but that's how I feel.
After being into this profession for couple of years, I learnt great deal of things from great people I worked with, and then one day I thought why can't I share this knowledge to others, and be helpful to those who need it!.
I actually have big ideas for this concept, but couldn't find time to fulfill it, so as an initiation towards what I dreamt, I started this blog. I'll be posting about things I learnt about efficient programming to other related things like Web/App servers, build scripts, etc. In short all the things I know, and I learnt. Hope this blog helps few people who are looking for it.
Now so much about technical things, apart from Programming/Development, I love reading books, and love playing Badminton, and Cricket. I spend most of my time at home - reading, coding, watching TV and occasionally get into kitchen :), I don't like to go out and have fun, but I love to go to movies with friends. My favorites - God Father, Lord of the Rings trilogies, Good Fellas, Galdiator... list goes on!

Hosting Multiple Domains In Tomcat

Tomcat allows us to host multiple domains in one instance, using multiple 'Host' tags. In this article I will explain how to do it on Tomcat. This is very simple configuration using 'Host' tags in your server.xml. A novice can also understand this configuration very easily.
Before going into the details of the configuration first lets have a look at the 'Host' tag, 'Context' tag and 'Alias' tags first.
<Host name="domain1" appBase="[application base]" autoDeploy="[true/false]" unpackWARs="[true/false]"> <Alias>...</Alias> <Context path="" docBase="" reloadable="[true/false]"/> </Host> First lets have a look at 'Alias' tag. This tag is used to provide aliases for your actual domain. For example you have a domain called '', and you want to run the same application for '' also…

File Uploading Using Servlets, JSP and Commons File Upload API

I’ve seen many developers who are at the early stages of their career have problems with this topic and seen many posts in forums asking how to do it – File Uploading using Servlets, JSP!; this article will provide an example using Commons File Upload API. I tried to make the example as simple as possible, hope it helps those early birds. Example uses JSP to provide the pages with form where user can select the file to upload with other form fields, Commons File Upload API to process submitted form and read form fields separately, and Servlets as middle layer between JSP and Commons File Upload API, example also has ANT build script to generate the distributables. All the code can be downloaded, links to these resources are provided at the end of this post, lets get on with the example then.
The flow in this example is as depicted in the following picture.
As you can see, user selects the file to upload and provides normal form data as well, using "index.jsp" and submits th…

Simple AJAX [, JSP] Example

You will find many examples to learn how AJAX [Asynchronous Java Script And XML] works, but this one is different. Its one of the best way of using AJAX in web applications. The difference -  many of the examples you find uses Java Script to parse the AJAX response, this example avoids that parsing Java Script and uses JSP to generate the HTML and uses simple Java Script just to make the asynchronous call and show the response. It shows simple way of using JSP and AJAX with as much less Java Script as possible. This article wont go into details of what AJAX is and how to make AJAX calls, it explains one good way among many to use AJAX. Lets get on with it then!
The flow of this example is like this – A simple JSP page where user performs an action [button click in this example] to get list of employees, on this action we’ll make an Asynchronous call to a Servlet which will prepare the dummy employee data and sends that data to a JSP page. This JSP generates the HTML displaying the em…
