pass all the jars in classpath when compiling java

How to pass multiple jar files while using javac – compiling java classes

If you have single jar file, you can pass as: lets assume you are compiling file.java

javac path/to/file.java -classpath "path/to/jar/file.jar" -d classpath

But how about if you have multiple jar files to be included in the class path?

If you are on windows you can list the jar files separated by semi colon(;) and in unix you can pass with colon(:)

javac path/to/java/file.java -classpath "file1.jar:file2.jar:dir/*"

The last example is for unix environment but you can apply it to windows with proper path and semicolon

Select an element with multiple classes jQuery

CSS Classes, as we know are the main drivers in the UI. Since we have only one id per element, our arena or tweak on that area is almost limited.
But classes are possible to be deployed multiple times per element and we can apply independent actions per classes..
Now, when you have two classes assigned and you want to single out that element having two classes in jQuery you would do

$('.class1.class2')

Without any space in between.
Common usage would be with javascript where you would take and put classes based on actions.

Yup!

Multiple keyword search in multiple directories bash script

I guess the title is good enough :)
Probably you can do it in single grep command too.. but this way you will play with bash as well..

here is the bash script doing it


 #! /bin/bash
 dirs=(dir1 dir2 dir3 dir4 dir5)
 keywords=(keyword1 keyword2 keyword3 keyword4 keyword5)
 strs=""
 for word in "${keywords[@]}"; do
     strs+=" -e ${word} "
 done
 
 for path in "${dirs[@]}"; do
     dirname="$(basename "${path}")"
     grep -ir --color ${strs} ${path}
 done

Save this as finder.sh

and you can run it as bash finder.sh

file upload

multiple file upload in Symfony2 example

Multiple File Upload in Symfony framework

I spent decent amount of time to put together the multiple file upload in symfony.

It is not that difficult actually but the problem is there is no direct/easy documentation or tutorial on it.

On the form type where you would build the form, have the files with the type of collection and make its type a file entity. In this case there would be two file types by default.

    public function buildForm(FormBuilderInterface $builder, array $options) 
    {
        /*
         * The file does not need to be added as "file" because it is referred
         * in the validation for File and SF will automatically know it is file.
         */
        return $builder
                ->add("files", 'collection', array(
		    'type'=>new FileType(),
		    'allow_add'=>true,
		    'data'=>array(new BundleEntityFile(),
		    new BundleEntityFile())
		))
                ->add('save', 'submit');
    }

    public function getName()
    {
        return "files";
    }
}

The trick is on adding the files as collection. Initially, we have two file inputs and their type being FileType.

The allow_add is important to be able to add files through javascript.

The javascript would look like:

/*Handling multiple picture upload*/
$('#add_pictures').click(function(){
    var total_files=$("#member_pictures_container li").length;
    var file_label=document.createElement("label");
    file_label.innerHTML="File";
    file_label.for="PhotoAndDescription_files_"+total_files;
    var div_file=document.createElement("div");    
    div_file.appendChild(file_label);
    var picture= document.createElement('input');
    picture.name="PhotoAndDescription[files]["+total_files+"][file]";
    picture.type="file";
    picture.id="PhotoAndDescripton_files_"+total_files;
    div_file.appendChild(picture);
    div_container=document.createElement('div');
    div_container.id="PhotoAndDescription_files_"+total_files;
    div_container.appendChild(div_file);
    var list_element=document.createElement('li');
    list_element.appendChild(div_container);
    $('#member_pictures_container').append(list_element);
});

FileType would look like:

class FileType extends AbstractType
{
    public function buildForm(FormBuilderInterface $builder, array $options)
    {
        return $builder->add("file", "file");
    }

    public function getName()
    {
        return "filetype";
    }

    public function setDefaultOptions(OptionsResolverInterface $resolver)
    {
        $resolver->setDefaults(array(
            'data_class'=>'BundleEntityFile',
            'csrf_protection'=>true,
            'csrf_field_name'=>'_token',
            'intention'=>'file'
        ));
    }
}

 

And the twig file would look like this one

{{form_start(form)}}
    {{ form_errors(form) }}
    {{ form_widget(form.about_member) }}
    • {% for file in form.files %}

 

  • {{ form_errors(file) }} {{ form_widget(file) }}

 

 

{% endfor %} {{form_end(form)}}

Pretty much this will take care of the multiple file handling in symfony2. As I mentioned earlier, it is not that difficult but the lack of documentation has made it so..
