  • Fixing Unsupported major.minor version 52.0 Error in Java

    Javin Paul
    22 May 2015 | 7:45 am
    Unsupported major.minor version 52.0 comes when you are trying to run a class compiled using Java 1.8 compiler into a lower JRE version e.g. JRE 1.7 or JRE 1.6. Simplest way to fix this error is install the latest Java release i.e. Java 8 and run your program. If upgrading to Java 8 is not an option then make sure you use Java compiler's cross compilation feature and compile source code for lower Java version by using -target option of javac command. If you have multiple JRE installed make sure that the latest one comes first in PATH environment variable. You can get…

  • How to Remove Given Character From String in Java - Recursion

    Javin Paul
    11 Apr 2015 | 6:32 am
    Write a program to remove a given character from String in Java. Your program must remove all occurrences of given character. For example, if given String is "aaaaa" and String to remove is "a" then output should be an empty String. Similarly if input String is "abc" and character to remove is "b" then your program must return "ac" as output. You are not allowed to use any JDK method or third party method which solves this method directly, but you can use basic String manipulation method like indexOf(), toChar() or substring() from…
  • 3 Ways to Prevent Method Overriding in Java - Private, Static and Final

    Javin Paul
    8 Apr 2015 | 7:32 am
    Every Java programmer knows that final modifier can be used to prevent method overriding in Java because there is no way someone can override final methods; but, apart from final modifier, is there any other way to prevent method overriding in Java? This was the exact question, asked to one of my friend in a recent Java interview at one of the leading Investment bank. I guess, he was lucky to get this question because he already knows those tricks and was able to answer it quickly. When he told me about his experience,  I didn't understand why someone ask this question? What is the…

  • Are you Making the Most of External IT Expertise?

    Simon Mitchell
    14 May 2015 | 2:00 am
    CIOs need to continually audit their IT set-up and understand the myriad of skills required in a modern IT team. Every CIO has an idea of how they think their organisation's IT systems should develop. Most are too busy managing the daily tasks of their department to stand back and map out where they are and how to get to where they want to be. CIOs are also unlikely to invest the time in switching out of their existing infrastructure, minimising the possibility to develop and improve. Mapping out a change in infrastructure Given the time, a CIO would be able to analyse their business and…

All too commonly in organisations the onus is towards letting the idea grow organically into a project, then on to fruition. For the large proportion of projects this will work, but a number of projects will lead to a considerable pain along the way, due to…
