  • 2. Vectors vs ArrayLists?
    I have looked at the interfaces and javadocs for java.util.ArrayList and java.util.Vector and I can't tell the difference between them. Is there a difference, and if so, what? Is one better than the other, or are they each better for different tasks?

Where is a good place to ask a question about ANT

I have installed ANT on a Windows 2003 server and would like to use it
to build and deploy tar files which are NOT composed of Java.
Furthermore, the tool I have to use to compile only works under a
Unixish applcation (we use SFU 3.5).  So what I need to be able to do
is invoke ANT from the command line under ksh and have it know about
my java installation.  When I try to run ant from the command line
now, I get an error telling me that my JAVA_HOME is not set up
correctly.  Unfortuantly, I think Ant wants to run something called
java or javac but my installation which I am using is for Windows
(jdk1.5....) and there is no "java" or "javac", only "java.exe" and
"javac.exe"  Is this the right place to ask or is there a forum
dedicated to ant somewhere?

You have to set JAVA_HOME in your environment variables. Just set it
the root of your java installation.
Maybe it's also requiered to update the PATH variable with the java
bin path.

1.I am not sure if this is the right place to ask this but

I have aol and I go on Lavalife and recently the instant messaging window has
not worked and I was wondering if you all could gjive me some tips on how to

2.Error Message-I am not certain which Group to ask

Does anyone know what the error message: the callee(server(not server
application) is not available and disappeared; all connections are

I get this from certain web pages when I try to hit the link buttons
for it to perform an action on another page?

3.open a temp window to ask a user to wait while an upload is taking place

I have a Perl script that's called as a CGI to handle the form
submission from a browser, thru which a user from the web can up load
an image file. I would like, when the user clicks the "Send Image"
button, to pop up a small window containing an animated (working -
please be patient) .gif while the image is uploaded from thier computer
to the server, once the transfer is complete, I would like to close the
pop up window and then load the new page in the original window.

That being the said, the Perl script won't be called at all until the
upload is finished, at which point its too late to do something like
what I am describing here.

Is there a way to open this popup window as possably a child of the
current window (inwhich the user clicked the button) so that the "Be
patient window" displays the gif, then once the upload is complete and
the Perl script is finaly called, which would then update the original
window causing the popup to close automaticly?

If so how would one do this, or some such other reasonably close
sequence of events?

5.I am having trouble with finding a good regular expression

I am trying to find a regular expression that returns true in the
following cases but no others.


In other words I am looking for a regular expression that returns true
only if there is a decimal in it. It can allow negative numbers. It can
have as many digits before and after the decimal. It can also allow
scientific notation with either the e or E. I have done some looking
around and found some but they returned false in some of the cases and
returned true for some of the cases I did not want them to. Please help.
