Java Pros: Discover 6 Websites to Boost Your Income through Bounties

A Java programming veteran can find easy bounties on various platforms where developers can earn rewards for contributing to open-source projects, solving coding challenges, or participating in bug bounty programs.

Some of these platforms include:

1 GitHub
Explore open-source Java projects on GitHub and look for repositories with “good first issue” or “help wanted” labels. Many projects offer bounties for fixing bugs or implementing new features.

2 Gitcoin
Gitcoin is a platform that connects developers with projects offering bounties for contributions. Filter the available bounties by programming language (Java) and difficulty level to find easy tasks.

3 HackerOne
HackerOne is a bug bounty platform where you can earn rewards for finding security vulnerabilities in various software products, including those written in Java.

4 Bugcrowd
Similar to HackerOne, Bugcrowd connects developers with companies offering bounties for finding and reporting security vulnerabilities.

5 Topcoder
Topcoder is a crowdsourcing platform that hosts coding competitions, including those focused on Java development. Join the community and participate in challenges to earn cash prizes.

6 Codeforces
Codeforces is an online platform that hosts competitive programming contests. Although not strictly bounty-based, you can still sharpen your Java skills and earn recognition in the community.

Happy Bounty Hunting!

jconsole: “Connection Failed: Retry?” #SOLVED #java #jmx

So you wrote a piece of server software and you found out about JMX and the jconsole tool to remotely monitor all sorts of interesting metrics remotely, all without adding a single line of code to your project.

Say you want to run it the simplest way possible with no authentication, the tutorial says that these are the options you need to pass to the remote virtual machine to enable JMX remote monitoring on some port (let’s put 9595 for illustrative purposes).



But when you open your jconsole on your local computer to connect to the remote server…


You get this fucking error no matter what you do.

You’re just missing one more option they must have forgotten to mention in the retard tutorial at

(let’s use IP address as the remote server IP)

-Djava.rmi.server.hostname= #ip of the remote machine, yes the ip, not the name


[SCREENCAST] How to do Unit Testing on Android with Eclipse

I was going to make a tutorial, but then I figured that making a video would be a much better way to show this.
As for the code that you could grab from a tutorial, there’s a link at the end of the post with all the code shown in the video demo.

The video demo covers how to create and run Unit Test classes for regular Java classes on Android, and also how to create and run Unit Test classes that test classes that depend on Android “Context” or “Activity” objects.

If your Android unit tests are not running because of frustrating error messages, the time spent watching this video will save you a lot of reading and headaches.

Check the screencast after the break

Droid vs Nexus 1 – SunSpider JavaScript Benchmark showdown

Nexus One runs JavaScript 2.32 times faster than the Motorola Droid.

The SunSpider JavaScript Benchmark was run several times on both phones and results were consistent.

It’d be great to compare with the iPhone 3Gs, If someone has an iPhone 3Gs, please run the test and send me the results to update this post.

Crónicas del Buen Programador: Invierte en Conocimientos

“Una inversión en conocimiento siempre paga el mejor Interes” Benjamin Franklin

Tus conocimientos y tu experiencia son tus mejores bienes. En 1999 recuerdo que compre un libro llamado “Java In A Nutshell“. Era un libro de referencia completa al lenguaje, en aquel entonces la API era Java 1.1.8. Lei el libro de la primera pagina a la ultima pagina. En unos cuantos meses empece a ganar reputación en la escuela de Ingeniería Informática porque sabia programar (muy poco en comparación a hoy en día) en Java.
