If you are developing with Java, I’m sure you ran into a console output that looks like this:
log4j:WARN No appenders could be found for logger (org.apache.openejb.resource.activemq.ActiveMQResourceAdapter).
log4j:WARN Please initialize the log4j system properly.
log4j:WARN No appenders could be found for logger (org.apache.openejb.resource.activemq.ActiveMQResourceAdapter).log4j:WARN Please initialize the log4j system properly.
The message is clean: provide a log4j configuration. But, hey, I just want to debug/test/… it… Or I just want to change the debug level, but I cannot modify the app, or cannot find the (right) configuration…
I just need a fast solution for this.
So here it is:
- Create a folder and place a log4j.properteies file in it.
- Edit your log4j.properteies for your needs.
- Add the given folder to your apps classpath (as a first entry)

This is just a short description on how to use OpenEJB with Tomcat to debug it within Eclipse.
The point is to be able to debug EJB applications from within Eclipse with a lightweight Tomcat container using OpenEJB.

Eclipse has a built in spell checker. It’s based on word list files. It is just fine for languages that does not use pre- and postfixes extensively. But for languages like Hungarian, it is a no go. – I’ve tried to generate a word list of Hungarian words, but when I noticed that the word list reached 35 GB (not a typo!) I’ve canceled the process. – Just imagine Eclipse loading 35+ GB of dictionary…
In my search for a spell checker for Eclipse I found eSpell, but eSpell is also a word list based engine, so that is a no go too. I left with no choice but to create one. So here it is:
Immature. In beta stage. Lot to do. But it works…
I’m planning to provide content sensitive checking for Java and XML. Actually my plan is to create extension points for that purpose, to provide possibility for others to contribute too.
I hope you’ll enjoy the plug-in and that you found it worthy to comment.

Lots of software companies does not Open Source their software. It is a bad practice, and a waste of money. Open Souring your software has a real good ROI.
This article is first of all for business people leading software companies, or for those who pay for software development. Actually for all those who are decision makers. On the other side I hope it will be interesting for software architects, developers too.
This is not mean to be an in-depth analysis or an article about sheer numbers, charts and stuff. It’s just few thoughts and examples from the real world.
