Debugging is a process to find and fix a defect or bug in the code. We all know that Brian W. Kernighan was right when he wrote: “Debugging is twice as hard as writing the code in the first place. Therefore, if you write the code as cleverly as possible, you are, by definition, not smart enough to debug it.”In the forthcoming  “Debugging Step by Step …” articles we consider...

WebLogic Shared Library Deployment

Tue, 2014-09-02 08:30
When deploying a large WAR file application, it would be more easier to manage if we can separate the dependency jars away from the rest of the Web content; or at least those third party jars that do not update often. In this case, we usually call the jars content a "Shared Library" and the Web content the "Skinny WAR". Preview Text:  When...

Hire talented people and get out of their way?

Tue, 2014-09-02 08:30

Today’s is: In most cases being a good boss means hiring talented people and then getting out of their way. This advice (hire smart, don’t micromanage) is so simplistic, it’s hardly worth saying. The profound stupidity is equating this with “being a good boss“. ...
