Sachin I am a part of the proud generation who grew up watching legendary players in the names of Vivian, Lara, Ambrose, Gowri, Kandee, Warne, Ponting, Saurav, Dravid, Imran, Wasim, Miandand and Kallis. Then of-course there is this man who been the synonym of cricket for last twenty years or so. I still remember his first ever series in Pakistan during ...

And the Mountains Echoed! I was rushing, really rushing. I had to buy a birthday card and go to the party which I was already late to. I was walking past all the shops and leading to the cards store. Then all of a sudden something stroked. I stopped, backtracked and hopped into the shop. There was this "New Releases" section and I found ...

"If your house was on fire and you had 60 seconds, what would you take? "This question was in the movie Leap Year, a movie about a soon to be engaged, confused Boston girl meeting a country bartender come chef, an Irish boy in a little town called Dingle. The girl is well educated, intellect but totally confused with what ...

Emotional Breakdowns. Seriously? There are days one feels, everything is blacked out. There wouldn’t be any reasons for it, but it just happens. Its like an opposite to big bang. Everything you do go nothing. That includes, time, space, mass and energy. You would have counted on them in your entire life right? Now imagine everything without time, space, mass and energy? ...

God's Coming! The odometer almost touching 140 mark. But he didn’t notice. He didn’t realise how fast he was going. There was nobody in the road. It was a deserted out creek drive with full of livestock farms around. Its the first day of the autumn season. One could see the bush fire affected remnants all over the places. It wasn't hot, ...

I can’t reach it! Yesterday found this amazing video of a desperate kid trying to reach to moon. Taken aback by the freshness and the innocence in this kid, I watched this video again and again. Interestingly a NASA employee must have seen this video, now invited the girl to have a visit to their lab to see how close she can reach ...

When I was going through Google’s aggregation on 2012 resolutions, I was kinda thinking what could be mine this year. Checking into a gym? Learning Guitar, honestly? Not to appear on stages anymore, not to commit with any of the rubbish debates, poetry sort of things which I recently pushed into. I am gonna let all these go and ...

When Google released its YouTube application for iPad, I was one of those who got damn excited. Soon switched to it and started using it. But then it was like a fiscal cliff! Its pathetic I couldn’t multitask it. The moment I start using the chrome or safari, YouTube would stop playing the video. If you go to volume ...

Recently I had a chance to play around with JMockit. We need to introduce a mocking framework which could support legacy code seamlessly and JMockit pretty much does as it claims. It wasn’t a straightforward experience though. Since the code I was testing against has a tightly coupled servlet and backend legacy APIs as well as Java’s own system/lang ...

Yarl IT Hub, Jaffna the next Silicon Valley : Part 4 Yarl Geek Challenge finally happened. It was in October, we ran the show for four days, four consecutive days in a fashion we wouldn’t have imagined even in our wildest dream two years back. There were about ten teams from Jaffna, Vavuniya, Moratuwa, Colombo, Trinco and Pera. The students from different institutions. The judges had diversity too. Some of ...

Yarl IT Hub, Jaffna the next Silicon Valley : Part 3 Renovators, a reality show which was happening in Australia. A flop show, never had its second season apparently. But I kind of fell for the show and hardly missed any episodes. You get five teams assigned homes/buildings in crappy conditions. The teams need to renovate the them in a given budget and this show would go for six to seven ...

From This Moment! It was early 90s. 1994 I think. My brother was an English teacher by then, undergoing the teachers' English literature training program. I still remember his long study table with full of scattered literature books. Shakespeare, R.K Narayan, Charles Dickens, you name it. Never a natural reader by himself, he often finds it hard to study those books, and he ...

Yesterday I started writing my weekly column in my Tamil language blog (www.padalay.com), and there was a reference to "mustache is the mirror of heart" quote popped up. I could have just mentioned it and gone, but as usual I sucked in, wanted to know who said it and when. Because although it sounds like a nice proverb, it doesn't ...

Recently I have seen a code, converting the String value into integer, catching the "NumberFormatException" and handle it there propagating a custom error message back there. try { int i = Integer.parseInt(x); } catch (NumberFormatException e) { throw new IllegalArgumentException("Not a valid number"); }This is not desirable for two reasons. Firstly, you don't handle the RuntimeExceptions but prevent them from ...

Jobs Vs Gates! Not over yet! "And of the great entrepreneurs of this era, people will have forgotten Steve Jobs. Who's Steve Jobs again?"But Gates, there will be statues of Gates across the Third World, and people will remember him as the man who ... you know, there's a reasonable shot, because of his money, we will cure malaria." The man who uttered these words is ...

As it suggests one would usually use Named Queries for select queries only. For Update/Inserts we usually go for JPA entity persistence. Last week I needed to update the list of records based on a condition. In a usual scenario this would be a walk in the park, you just need to get the list first and then update the ...

Last Saturday I did a small talk (2 hours!) on Java Web Programming concept in Tamil.
