I need to build a small web app (or desktop application, but since it was suggested that I use Tapestry BeanDisplay etc components, i'm seriously looking into the web app route)
Problem is, I have close to zero experience in this area (+a year or so in server-side programming in Java)

Will appreciate links to tutorials etc, as right now I'm not even sure of terms methods etc.

I need to read some files from disk, as XML, then make a string of each of them and [using a queue to keep all the strings ] send via HTTP to the client per it's request.
If I use apache-commons-io.FileUtils.fileAsString - I get some characters not ending up the same in the result, so it looks like encoding problem which I don't know how to solve.

If I use XMLEventReader/Writer so as to treat the file as xml, read it by events etc, and then make a string out of it, then queue ets, the client can't read the XML at all ...

Please help -as this does feel like voodoo right now ..

Problem solved -indeed encoding issue, which is easy as pie to handle in FileUtils -just provided the relevant encoding as param to the method.

Some more info:
We have a combined web+non-web Java application, which also includes JavaScript etc.
The unit testing framework is Junit 3.8
Our company is considering a switch from our current Java IDE -IntelliJ Idea 5.1 to the latest available (3.3?) Eclipse release.

We're using SVN as source control -integrated with the IntelliJ and Jira for our bug tracking.

Best thing would be to just go ahead and try it , I guess, but we're trying to minimize waste of time - meaning setting up the whole thing in Eclipse just to find out there's some unsolvable issue there.

We've already compared the feature lists but would love to hear from people who have used (preferably) both IDEs or at least extensively used Eclipse in a commercial setting, as to pros/cons of such a move.

Thanks all !
What I mean is more than having the algorithms' implementation in Java, but rather a book with similar-level questions/puzzles that also involves OO stuff, possibly in an interviews-oriented sort of way.

Thanks for your answer -it does look a bit hackish , but is indeed along the lines of what I thought too.

Welcome to JavaRanch.

On your way in you may have missed that we have a policy on screen names here at JavaRanch. Basically, it must consist of a first name, a space, and a last name, and not be obviously fictitious. Since yours does not conform with it, please take a moment to change it, which you can do right here.

As to your question, there's no direct way. It's somewhat hackish, but I think this should work:

I mean something similar to the array syntax :
int[] array =new int[]{1,2,5}

but for Set collection?

Thanks a lot in advance
