Fixing Subclipse in Eclipse

SneWs's picture

One annoying thing I see time after time is that Subclipse, a Subversion plugin in Eclipse is that it fails to use the native implementation. The fix is easy, just change to the Pure Java implementation and you're good to go without any annoying messages.
The error message you might get when trying to use Subclipse will look something like this:

Disable Fault Tolerant Heap (FTH)

SneWs's picture

This only applies to Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2.
Snip from MSDN on what FTH is:
The Fault Tolerant Heap (FTH) is a subsystem of Windows 7 responsible for monitoring application crashes and autonomously applying mitigations to prevent future crashes on a per application basis. For the vast majority of users, FTH will function with no need for intervention or change on their part. However, in some cases, application developers and software testers may need to override the default behavior of this system.

Boot from vhd files with Windows 7

With Windows 7, you can use the bcdedit tool to boot into vhd files. This is really cool and useful if you, like me work as a Developer or if you are a IT professional responsible for testing new technology.

mysql-for-obj-c - New Release

SneWs's picture

OK, I've manage to spend some time with the MySQL connection framework for Obj-C and a new release have been made public.

This release will support standard query handling such as SELECT, INSERT, UPDATE, and DELETE. The result will be handled properly and you will be able to access it with column name and/or index etc... All the normal stuff one would expect.

mysql-for-obj-c - Current state

SneWs's picture

The project is coming along great. We have the base functionality in place, tested and mostly working.

This weekend, I've planned to complete the STMT support for parametrized queries and start to write a little test application that uses the library to do some admin stuff as a proof of concept.

From what I've gathered from Tony, my partner in crime for this project, he's going to come up with a plan for the Core Data integration, I'm excited to see what he comes up with.

Obj-C and MySQL - Next generation

SneWs's picture

I've just set up a google code project to host my next project, "MySQL for Obj-C". The project has only one simple goal.
* "Enabling Obj-C developers to easily and in a (natural or maybe native?) Obj-C way talk with MySQL servers."

This means niceties such as accessing data using built in types such as NSString, NSInteger NSDate etc. It will also incorporate Obj-C 2.0 garbage technology and fast enumeration. Later on Obj-C 2.1 features such as blocks will also be supported. More about the Obj-C 2.1 features later.

Xcode, Eclipse and Visual Studio.

SneWs's picture

When developing on the Apple platform, one will get a free IDE and free developer tools. That's nice. No extra charge, just download and install from Apple.

But how good is the free IDE, Xcode. Well, I'm going to compare some basic features. I work most with Eclipse and Visual Studio .NET but now days I'm also using Obj-C and Cocoa targeting OS X, and yes, Xcode is the IDE of my choice.

Obj-C/Cocoa and embedded frameworks

SneWs's picture

Apple is known to make things simple, right?
Well, as it turns out, they have definitely forgotten about developers, we don't get all the fancy helpers and nice applications (sexy applications) that we actually could get if Apple just put some effort in it. Look at Microsoft, they have been spending a lot of time making the developer tools they offer into a world class framework for developers around the world. Nothing even comes close to Visual studio for example.

openSuSE 11.2, mark your calendar!

SneWs's picture

Mark November 12, the date for the final release of openSuSE 11.2. If you have some time during this summer, please consider participating in testing the milestone releases or contribute in some other way that may be within your area of expertise.

Some of the new features for end users:
For Gnome users, the Sonar theme seems to be one of the bigger GUI changes.
For KDE users, KDE 4.3 will be shipped, and hopefully it will be really stable and actually usable.
