Queue Implementation in Java using Array

Queue is a special type of collection designed to hold elements before processing and order elements in a FIFO (first-in-first-out) manner.

Here I am trying to implement Queue with Object Array and provides basic functionalities like enqueue(obj), dequeue() and isEmpty().

How to implement ArrayList with Array in Java

ArrayList is similar to Object Array but provides the feature of dynamic space allocation when the number of objects in the list grows. In Object Array we need to provide the size at the time of initialization but that is not required for ArrayList. Actually when you initialize ArrayList, it automatically assigns its capacity to 10.

Here I am trying to implement ArrayList with Object Array and provide basic functions i.e get(index), add(object) and remove(index).

JiBX Tutorial

JiBX is a very powerful framework for converting XML data to java object and vice versa. It is very useful in applications integration where XML is the format for data transfer, for example, Web Services and Legacy Systems Integration based on Message Oriented Model (MOM).

Converting Java Object in to XML is called Marshalling and creating java object from XML is called un-marshalling. There are many frameworks available for XML transformation such as JAXB and XMLBeans but JiBX differs in the approach for XML binding and transformation process. JiBX performs these tasks via utility classes generated at compile time via ant scripts. This approach reduces the processing time by moving away from the traditional two-step process with other parsers to a single step.

Benchmarks done on various XML binding tools have shown JiBX as the fastest and the most memory efficient parsing framework till date.

Here I am providing a sample application for XML transformation using JiBX parser.

Java XML Formatter

eXtensive Markup Language (XML) is one of the popular medium for messaging and communication between different applications. Since XML is open source and provides control over data format via DTD and XSDs, it’s widely used across technologies.

Few days back, I came across a situation where the third party API was returning Document object and XML message as String. So I wrote this simple XmlFormatter class to format the XML with proper indentation and convert Document object to XML String.

Java Object clone() Method – Cloning in Java

Java Object class comes with native clone() method that returns the copy of the existing instance. To use java cloning, all you need is to implement the marker interface java.lang.Cloneable so that it won’t throw CloneNotSupportedException at runtime.

So if clone() function returns the object copy, why do we need to over-write it and in which cases?
