When Guitar Playing

When Guitar Playing

Conductor come back to home after concert and put his frock coat on the chair hack. He gave a great concert, got lots of applause and ovation; he did a great job… Till he is alone, he taking guitar and begin to play, not for money, not for glory, just what he likes, just what he feels, just for music…

When you are developer, your life is also full of performance, you moving things around and switching between TODOs. But besides this developer when they are alone they also paying on guitar, making free software, not for sale but to keep playing, to do make code they will like and making it in a way they like. Maybe this is not the best playing, but till guitar playing the soul is live…

Bug Hunting

Bug Hunting

Even good software sometimes has bugs, so when bugs are come developer have to go hunting. He takes a hunting stuff and goes deep into sources forest.

Sometimes when bug is tyrannosaurus size, it is easily to shoot it, maybe even a whole pack of such tyrannosaurus and bang!… software become pleasant :) but more often, bugs are hiding and in camouflage, they are crafty, cautious and as a rule very dangerous. When you hunting for such bugs, your blood freezes, you perception became like a string, ready to sound from the smallest touch, you are waiting in ambush… this is competition and you have to win it! :)

FSD - I am Alive!

FSD - I am Alive!

This post related to FST articles. It was hard during Summer to write on a regular basis, but now … Import tool already alive. Yes, I already implemented the following features:

  • Basic import with restoring folders structure
  • Plain import (all documents being imported into selected folder)
  • Import with compression folders to ZIP archives
  • Import with converting text files to PDF format
  • Import with conversion TIFF files to PDF format
  • Extracting ZIP files and imports them as a folder

During the work it became an obvious that tool need a comfortable way to interact with Docbase (check imported documents and structure, etc.) This requires create a sample browser, with some basic features set. So I make decision to split project into two subprojects

  • Library with Swing components for Documentum
  • Import tool project

Of course second project will be the first subscriber of the library.
