Escape HTML using JSTL

Hello Friends,

If you are using JSTL to display HTML data in your application then you can escape HTML 2 ways in JSTL:

1) Using <c:out> tag
<c:out value="${specialCharString or HTML}" escapeXml="true"/>

2) Using EL Function

${fn:escapeXml("<i> This is jignesh vachhani")} 

Hope this will be useful somewhere.

If you want to use Liferay API then you can simply use

HTMLUtil.escape(String HTMLString)

Show/Display HTML tag in jsp

${fn:escapeXml(fn:replace(fn:replace(fn:replace("<div><p>This is jignesh testing</p></div>",'"','&quot;'),'<','&lt;'),'>','&gt;'))}

OOP Principles For The Java Designer

Here are some useful information which should be familiar with all the java programmers/designers :

1. DRY

DRY stands for Don’t Repeat Yourself, which is pretty self explanatory. This means that you shouldn’t be duplicating your code in a program. If a code fragment is appearing in two places, then you would do well to turn it into a method instead of writing the entire fragment again. Lack of duplication helps in easy maintenance of the code.

2. Encapsulation

Whether your project gets bought over or whether you work on it yourself, your code will always change. So, it is good to encapsulate the part of the code that you think will be changed. This makes you code easy to maintain and test.

JVM Structure & YourKit Tool

As a java programmer, we should have at least basic knowledge of JVM and how it stores values.

The JVM memory consists of the following segments,
  • Heap Memory :  Storage for Java objects
  • Non-Heap Memory : Used by Java to store loaded classes and other meta-data
  • Other :  JVM internal structures, loaded profiler agent code and data, etc.

Custom Portlet Modes

Hi All,

If you are thinking to create own custom portlet mode with liferay and want to show in configuration wrench button, then its not OOB available with Liferay and cannot achieve using simply configuration.
Liferay supports below modes :

  1.   about
  2. config
  3. edit
  4. editDefaults
  5. editGuest
  6. help
  7. preview
  8. print
  9. view
But below tag is making bit confusion whether it's support of custom mode or not. So this is used for Liferay custom modes(editDefault,editGuest etc.) only.

Google Guava

Hi Friends,

I know many of you are familiar with this word but someone is very new just like me.
I search this stuff in google and found that its really amazing and can be useful in our programming life.

So first question will come to your mind that what is "Google Guava" ?
So basically "Google Guava" is nothing but its utilities for working with java collection.

To start work with Gauva, you need to have java 1.6 or higher version installed in your machine.
