Have you ever wondered what all the different JVM options mean? If so, then follow the link below.
I’ve just found this library Jackcess thats capable of reading and writing MS Access MDB databases. What’s more, it's a pure Java library.
The latest production version of Hibernate (3.0) was released yesterday. According to the Hibernate web site, this contains minor fixes and some new functionality including two new database dialects.
I’ve been using the 3.0RC1 since its release and found it to be stable. The change log to version 3.0 lists the bugs and new features added so I’d recommend people using Hibernate have a look at this and then upgrade.
I’ve recently needed to do some command line parsing. Instead of reinventing the wheel, I looked at the Apache Commons CLI library. This library seemed to do exactly what I wanted and was fairly easy to use.
One question though? Why does the standard Java runtime not have classes to deal with CLI arguments?
Hibernate have just released a migration guide for users going from version 2 to version 3. Probably a good read for anyone considering upgrading.
