Calling java from .NET

 It seems I have to use .NET for my next project, but I don't want to give up my java knowledge, why don't just call java from .NET?

Sure enough, there is a project for that: jni4net

 

This post explain how it works:

dotCMS

dotCMS  just released a new version 2.2. 

The starter website is now based on Bootstrap which is good for mobile users. 

I checked their documentation and it seems like a good CMS, although the installation steps can be easier. 

 

A few things I like about this CMS:

  1. Good plugin framework
  2. Responsive html design (Bootstrap)
  3. RESTful XML/ATOM read/write
  4. Related content, filtering of related content
  5. WYSIWYG editor (TinyMCE)

Ecplise startup issue

After a recent update of Java, I found out that my Eclipse stopped working.

After digging around for a while, the issue seems to be that it is starting Eclipse with JDK6, but it is loading JRE version 7.

Following the instruction here to change the -VM option to JDK7, and problem solved
