Setting User Name in Eclipse For Comments Generation

Recently I have noticed that eclipse IDE on Fedora inserts the default system user name "root" in the @author attribute for java comments.


I have found two ways to change the Default System User name to what ever you like,

The First way is to

The other one is just by  changing the associated templates in Window -> Preferences -> Java -> Editor -> Templates -> @author , and hard coding the author's name.

The Other way is by editing the eclipse.ini file,


For example , the following eclipse.ini file shows what I have done to set my name

-showsplash
org.eclipse.platform
-framework
plugins/org.eclipse.osgi_3.4.2.R34x_v20080826-1230.jar
-vmargs
-Dosgi.requiredJavaVersion=1.5
-Xms40m
-Xmx512m
-XX:MaxPermSize=256m
-Duser.name="Siddhartha(Sidd)"



Notice the  attribute Duser.name , that I have set to Siddhartha(Sidd),  after changing eclipse.ini we should restart eclipse so that changes can take effect.

Now, when ever I want to add comments , against the @author attribute eclipse inserts  Siddhartha(Sidd).



It seems there are basically two ways to set the correct author name (opposed to the system user name Eclipse is using per default) in Eclipse as it appears for example within the autogenerated javadoc comments.
First using -vmargs settings:
eclipse -clean -showlocation -vmargs -Xms512m -Xmx900m -XX:PermSize=128m -XX:MaxPermSize=128m -Duser.name="Your full name"
The other one is just by  changing the associated templates in Window -> Preferences -> Java -> Editor -> Templates -> @author , hardcoding the author's name.

Masking Credit Card number in Java

Sometimes we need to mask crucial information like Credit Card Numbers, CVV numbers etc before storing  or logging the information. This example mask Credit Card Number (Except last 4 Digit) from a Text which contains information along with Credit Card Number.

The following example demonstrates how we can easily mask the credit card with Matcher and Pattern Classes. This Sample Code uses Matcher and Pattern.
Pattern Used in this sample is not optimized for Credit Card Numbers, this pattern will get any numerical numbers in the String Content.  Based on the Credit Card Type a more efficient and Strict RegEx can be used to mask the Credit Card.
/**Mask the Credit card number but last four digit value **/   Pattern PATTERN = Pattern.compile("[0-9]+"); String message = content; Matcher matcher = PATTERN.matcher(message); String maskingChar = "*"; StringBuilder finalMask = new StringBuilder(maskingChar); while …

Converting Java Map to String

Java Collections framework, String manipulation etc is something that we often encounter in Development process.
For processing collections (like checking null/empty, Intersection, Disjunction) We do have some of the very use full libraries.

Some of the Collection related libraries are Apche Commons Collections and Google  Collections(Guava).

Problem Use Case

This article explains how to convert a Java Map to String(and vice versa) using different libraries and technique.

One way is to use StringBuilder(Or String) and loop though the Map and build the String by applying some sort of separator ( for key:value and entry). Here we have to take care of the null value etc.

Without Any Library
If we want to convert the map to a String with key value separator and also individual entry seperator in the resulting String, we have to write code for that. For a simple Map, we have to iterate though the map, take care of the null values etc. Following is a sample to get String built out from Map C…

Invoking EJB deployed on a remote machine

Invoking EJB deployed on a remote machineIn case we are calling remote ejb( ejb deployed on remote machines),The JNDI lookup might lookup like,Properties env = new Properties();env.put(Context.INITIAL_CONTEXT_FACTORY, "org.jnp.interfaces.NamingContextFactory");env.put(Context.PROVIDER_URL, "XX.XXX.XX.XX:1099");env.put("java.naming.factory.url.pkgs", "org.jboss.naming:org.jnp.interfaces"); Context ctx = new InitialContext(env);If we are calling local ejb then we can simply create InitialContext without any parameters.Like,Context ctx = new InitialContext();
