Tips

  • Cygwin productivity tips
  • It is possible to do ASP/JavaScript debugging without using the Visual Inter Dev by using IIS script debugger
  • If you ever see an error like “Java Plug-in for Netscape Navigator Should Not Be Used with Microsoft Microsoft Internet Explorer. Please Use Java Plug-in for Microsoft Internet Explorer”, see http://home.att.net/~cherokee67/ffjavaerror.html
  • Creating Windows EXE from Java (don’t ask):I found NativeJ the best for my task. I also tried JexePack, but it didn’t seem to do well with IBM JVM (it says that unregistered version will just show a modal dialog box on startup, and it did on my machine, but when I tried running it on the WebSphere box, it seemed to create an endless loop with those modal dialogs. Finally, Excelsior JET is good, but too complex for a little task like this — creating an executable involves too many steps skipping over things I don’t need. The interface is not the best either — too much like a wizard, too little like an IDE that it really is. But maybe it’s good for bigger, more involved projects.
