Attaching Source/Java Doc - In Eclipse

Its really simple to attach Source code/Java Doc in eclipse, for a library you are using in your application. Select the project for which you want to do the changes.
  1. Go to Project Menu –> Properties
  2. Select Libraries Tab
  3. Select and expand the Jar file for which you want to add source code/Java doc.
  4. This will show you the options "Source attachment" and "JavaDoc Location".
  5. Select "Source attachment" option, this will enable 'Edit' button.
  6. Click on Edit button, this will open "Source Attachment Configuration" dialog.
  7. Here you need to provide the location of the source code to be attached. You can provide either compressed [jar/zip] file Or directory location of the source code. And after providing the location press OK.

Simple isn't it. For attaching JavaDoc select the option "JavaDoc" instead of "Source attachment" in the above mentioned step, and click on Edit. For JavaDoc you can either provide URL as location Or provide a location of the compressed file. For both "Source attachment" and "JavaDoc" you can also provide location by selecting a directory from the current workspace.

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 'domain1.com', and you want to run the same application for 'www.domain1.com' 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…

About Rakesh.A

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…
