What is java?

A high-level programming language developed by Sun Microsystems. Java was originally called OAK, and was designed for handheld devices and set-top boxes. Oak was unsuccessful so in 1995 Sun changed the name to Java and modified the language to take advantage of the burgeoning World Wide Web. Java is an object-oriented language similar to C++, but simplified to eliminate language features that cause common programming errors.

Google Briefly Punishes Oracle by Removal from Google Search

Late yesterday Oracle announced in an exceptionally brief and direct press release that it had filed a lawsuit against Google. The statement issued by Oracle spokesperson Karen Tillman simply said: “In developing Android, Google knowingly, directly and repeatedly infringed Oracle’s Java-related intellectual property.

Classic custom tag



Almost every developer has his own library of methods. And I wonder that few use their own tags on JSP page called custom tags. Any custom tag developer can reuse like any other method.
In the first part of my article I’d like to describe Classic Custom tags.
When you create Classic Custom tag than your class may implement one of three interfaces: Tag, IterationTag, and BodyTag or extends one of two classes TagSupport or BodyTagSupport. I advise you to use classes because in this case you should not implement all methods from interfaces.
