Uh Oh - Mozilla 1.2 Not Good


Stop The Presses We've discovered a bug in Mozilla 1.2 that can cause DHTML on some sites to fail. We plan to release Mozilla 1.2.1 with a fix shortly.

You gotta love 1) that they admit this, 2) that they notify us and 3) that they will fix it soon.

Tomcat 5 - Figured it out

Remember the Tomcat woes I was experiencing on Monday? Well, I think I've figured it out! It wasn't too hard, all I had to do was read the error message ...


... and go looking. Sure 'nough, this class is not there, nor are any of the other classes for the admin webapp! So I've logged the bug and now I wait. Maybe this is intentional, but I doubt it.

Later: The workaround I'm using is that there's a milestone build from October 14th that has the admin app intact and no errors on startup.

gunzip and tar

You *nix gurus probably have know this for a while, but I didn't. To gunzip and untar a *.tar.gz or *.tgz file with one command, try this:

gunzip -c ips6.0.tar.gz* | tar xvf -

It works on Solaris (9) and OS X (10.2.2 with gnutar), and therefore I assume it'll work on Linux. I learned that at the portal class I taught last week. Good stuff, committing to memory...

Help me rename struts-xdoclet

I've decided that I need a new name for struts-xdoclet. "Struts-XDoclet" is just too hard to say - try it, you'll see. Four syllables is just too many. Since I intend for it to be a Struts/XDoclet Jumpstart Kit, I'd like something that tries to signify that, but then again, I like POGN - Plain Old Good Names. SXJK is just as hard to say as Struts-XDoclet. I was thinking SASSY (Struts App Start ... nothing for S and Y) might be a good one - but doesn't really explain much. It'd be cool to name it Abbie, after my daughter, but I don't think sxd (hey, that might be a good one) will be that earth-shattering, and if I'm going to name something after Abbie - it better be good! I just asked Julie and her idea is to name it "struggle" - that's not bad. It eliminates the struggle in building a new webapp. Please comment your suggestions if you have an opinion.
