I think Grails: A Quick-Start Guide is version 1.1.1 Right?

How out of date (if at all) does the Grails in Action book feel?

Thanks for your response.

Do you mean you want a language-independent example of issuing HTTP requests?
Best wishes!

What I wanted to avoid was sending them a Java example, because they may be using C# or VB or ....

I know I could populate an HTML form with a POST action specified. That could even be done in more than one way.

It seems like an HTML example is the way to go.

Let's say I have a web application which responds to HTTP GET requests and was called via http://something.org/someApp?param1=ok

Now my web application will respond to POST requests where they send XML instead of URL parameters.

Without knowing what language my client will use, I want to provide an API example. With GET HTTP requests, it is clear that one just sends a sample URL.

What is a clear example of sending a POST where XML is sent?

I was hoping to be able to get the list of files for a module in CVS using this library: http://javacvs.netbeans.org/library/ However, I am now looking for any free Java solutions.

Using Java, how do you get a list of files from CVS without actually checking them out?

What is interesting is that ViewCVS is on that CVS server machine. It's theoretically possible to parse the HTML for the information I need. However, I would have to think there is a better way.

Wow. Just yesterday I thought to myself. I wonder if I should learn more about Android?

I need a way to safely ensure that the HTTP Response Header Transfer-Encoding is always chunked.

I can set on to HttpServletResponse the Transfer-Encoding to Chunked via setHeader(“Transfer-Encoding”, “Chunked”). I believe I have to make sure the content-length is not set.

Am I missing anything?

(Background: this is a workaround for neither content-length and Transfer-Encoding "Chunked" being there sometimes. My service provider is willing to work with me on this.)

User settings file does not exist

I am setting up Maven with Eclipse.
(http://m2eclipse.sonatype.org/update worked great.)

When I bring up the Maven Console in Eclipse, it gives me the following informational message.

"12/13/08 4:38:11 PM CST: [INFO] User settings file does not exist C:\Documents..yaya..\.m2\settings.xml"

What are the consequences of not having a user settings file for maven?

sweet! It works now. I can download the jar files.
It's the links like "ojdbc6_g.jar" at http://www.oracle.com/technology/software/tech/java/sqlj_jdbc/htdocs/jdbc_111060.html I am talking about. Try accepting the terms "Accept License Agreement" and then try clicking on ojdbc6_g.jar (has link address of http://download.oracle.com/otn/utilities_drivers/jdbc/111070/ojdbc6_g.jar)
I am using Oracle Database 10g Express Edition Release

I found an FAQ which states that JDK 1.6 support can happen through "11.1.0 OCI and THIN Driver - JDK 1.5.x and JDK 1.6.x"
FAQ: http://www.oracle.com/technology/tech/java/sqlj_jdbc/htdocs/jdbc_faq.html

I see a link for the 11.1.07 driver is available at http://www.oracle.com/technology/software/tech/java/sqlj_jdbc/index.html

Trying the link of http://www.oracle.com/technology/software/tech/java/sqlj_jdbc/htdocs/jdbc_111060.html and accepting the terms, I click on the ojdbc6_g.jar link.

The link does not work. I try others on that page. Same thing. Am I missing something or is the site just not available for driver downloads at this time (Oct. 25, 2008)?

Have you seen the errata for this book? Thanks.

"JSF catches Swing as the number one GUI component model for Java" in http://www.jroller.com/rickhigh/ ? Is that the place you are thinking?

I have been trying to get a feel for how hungry the market is and will be for Struts 2.

I even asked the question here and got some Struts 2 related answers.

I even tried Google Trends via http://www.google.com/trends?q=struts2%2C+struts&ctab=0&geo=all&date=all&sort=1

Similar to the TIOBE Programming Index http://www.tiobe.com/tiobe_index , do you know a way to measure Struts 2 popularity?

Also, do you know of a great certification for Struts 2? Brainbench currently only has "Struts 1.2.x"
