This category will hold articles for Java SE and Eclipse.
I think Java can be a lot of fun, since it already delivers a lot out of the box.
People who develop Java APIs usually give it a lot of thinking and work.
Java EE in comparison to Java SE can be described as a huge collection of Frameworks and API developed around Java SE.
Java EE is not a stand-alone programming language, but based on Java SE.
Recently I had to update a lot of user access rules in RSA IGL again.
If I have to do such batch jobs, I usually create an XML file and import it through the provided user interface.
This time I had to adjust the rule design, which basically meant parsing SQL where statements and changing the way they work technically, without changing the result of the where clause.
One important part of that was to keep of course the logical order, but my colleagues had made excessive use of unnecessary parenthesis during the rule implementation.
So here is a small method, which will replace unmatched parenthesis in a provided text for you.
I can not recommend to try and do this with regular expressions. You will most likely fail and even if you succeed it bears a certain risk opposed to using a simple Stack.
However, be careful when using this. I had to make sure not to change the meaning of the rules, which I accomplished using a mix of regular expressions and the below method.
I replaced with regex and then used this to clean up afterwards. Luckily I could follow this approach.

JavaFX and e(fx)clipse Article Count: 5
This category provides articles regarding JavaFX as well as e(fx)clipse as this seems to be a good start to deal with JavaFX.
JavaFX has been around for some time now and Oracle is currently triying to enforce it as new standard for Java Rich Client Applications.
Regarding to a developer I know it has had some improvements over the years and it looks like it is going to be a try out worthy successor of AWT (Java), Swing (Java) and SWT (IBM).
However Oracle is trying to push this somewhat new technology into the market for some time now, it has not yet been accepted by the Java community.
Root cause for this seem to be the following reasons.
- Companies are not asking for Rich Client Applications, but there is a trend for developing Web Applications. Therefore motivation to use anything like AWT, Swing, SWT or JavaFX is low except for private purposes. However JavaFX supports Mobile Applications, which is a big market. Since integration with mobiles is asked by companies as well for web applications and older technologies not supporting it, I can understand Oracle not wanting to provide support for it anymore.
- Programmers are lazy. If you give them something completely new to learn, it takes quite an effort to get to a stage where you are as fast as using already known technologies. The standard platform for Java development, eclipse is still not providing the same comfortable "what you see is waht you get editors" for JavaFX as it is providing for the older technologies. Until eclipse is not deprecating support for Swing and older technologies like SWT and AWT they will be used by programmers.
I did some research one the internet regarding JavaFX so far but I will try to write more articles in the future about it as I intend to write little tools for myself in Java. For this I of course do not want the hustle of maintaining a JEE server all the time. Therefore JavaFX is intersting for me but I am far from beeing an expert, so try it yourself.

Java Architecture for XML Binding (JAXB) Article Count: 3
Java Architecture for XML Binding (JAXB) provides a fast and convenient way to bind XML schemas and Java representations, making it easy for Java developers to incorporate XML data and processing functions in Java applications. As part of this process, JAXB provides methods for unmarshalling (reading) XML instance documents into Java content trees, and then marshalling (writing) Java content trees back into XML instance documents. JAXB also provides a way to generate XML schema from Java objects.
