By | July 18, 2013

Tomcat was still sending the System.out and System.err streams to the shell and eventually to catalina.out in the normal configuration.  The jar file now contains a life cycle listener which can be used to redirect… Read More »

OK, today I would like to share a little patch I was toying around with in the JRuby world. First a little background.

Apache Tomcat – Multi-Service Manager App

Ok, more things I don’t like about Apache Tomcat😉 We have a web application which wants to be installed into the root context. But that means that the normal /manager webapp would either show up in it’s `directory-space’ or we would not be able to use it at all 🙁 We have an Apache web… Read More »

Apache Tomcat and Logging – The 2nd

That brought up a new problem, I needed to include the process ID in… Read More »

Sun decided to to the first round for this years JavaOne online-only. If you have read some postings here,… Read More »

VWP @NetBeans 5.5 and project update

By | December 11, 2006

We finally released the Visual Web Pack for NetBeans 5.5;-) So I might actually write a couple of more entries here again. Some people see problems when they try to take a project from the VWP TP and open/build it with the final version of VWP. Something like: I installed the new version of VWP… Read More »

NB 6 – trunk, Java SE 6 and KDE

By | October 25, 2006

Long time nothing on this blog. Sorry about that. But here I come again;-) I started playing with NB 6 on top of the Java SE 6 RC builds. And as always I’m not using the default configuration. So I ran into an interesting problem. The NB IDE was not able to open an external… Read More »
