ClassCastException: JAXBContextImp to JAXBContext with woodstox and NetBeans

If you are getting java.lang.ClassCastException: com.sun.xml.bind.v2.runtime.JAXBContextImpl cannot be cast to javax.xml.bind.JAXBContext at javax.xml.bind.ContextFinder.newInstance( at javax.xml.bind.ContextFinder.find( at javax.xml.bind.JAXBContext.newInstance( at javax.xml.bind.JAXBContext.newInstance( at javax.xml.bind.JAXBContext.newInstance( at com.rubenlaguna.en4j.mainmodule.ImportEvernoteFile.actionPerformed( and you are using woodstox be sure to check the DevFaqModuleCCE. This could happen when you have Netbeans Platform Application with a module containing woodstox but also including JAXB 2.1 in the module dependencies for the application.

git: error pushing via HTTP (return code 22)

If you get a error: Cannot access URL, return code 22 when trying to push changes to a git repository via HTTP. This is probably because you are using an HTTP proxy to access the repo and that proxy doesn’t support WebDAV HTTP methods (especially PROPFIND). So when git issues a PROPFIND the http proxy answers back with a 500 Internal Server Error or something like that. It seems that PROPFIND is absolutely required so if you can use git:// directly or use a HTTP proxy which supports PROPFIND.

Netbeans refuses to recognize persistence.xml (no visual editor)

If you create the persistence.xml manually in Windows the file will be created with CRLF line endings (windows style line endings), that will prevent Netbeans for recognizing- Netbeans will not recognize it as the special file it is and won’t be able to to open it with the special/custom visual editor. [/caption] I opened an bug report netbeans issue #172538. At the beginning, I thought the problem was due to different line ending CRLF vs LF issues, but as pointed out in the bug report the line ending has nothing to do with it.

OpenJPA: Generated SQL contains extra UPDATEs

I’m trying to use OpenJPA to insert some entries in the database and I’m getting a strange number of UPDATEs beside the INSERTs. I isolated the problem to the following snippet of code privatevoidstart(){EntityManagerFactoryemf=Persistence.createEntityManagerFactory("persistencexmltest1PU");EntityManagerem=emf.createEntityManager();for(inti=0;i<10;i**){em.getTransaction().begin();MyEntityn=newMyEntity();n.setValue(i);em.persist(n);em.getTransaction().commit();}} The generated SQL looks like this: INSERT INTO MYTABLE (ID, VALUE, CREATED) VALUES (?, ?, ?) [params=(int) 1, (int) 0, (null) null] INSERT INTO MYTABLE (ID, VALUE, CREATED) VALUES (?, ?, ?) [params=(int) 2, (int) 1, (null) null] UPDATE MYTABLE SET CREATED = ?

Adding a Google Search Web Element to a Wordpress theme

The newly released Google Web element: custom search is awesome. To add it to my wordpress theme (which doesn’t have a top sidebar for widgets) I had to edit (Appearance ⇒ Editor) the header.php file and add the snippet I got from Google there, at just at the end of the header.php. So the search web element is show right after the banner and before the posts. In my case the code is

OpenJPA Enhancer Ant task in a Netbeans project

In the build.xml of the project (likely this will be a Java Class Library project), override -post-compile or -pre-jar and invoke <openjpac/>. You will need to add the build/classes and the openjpa jars to <taskdef/> and <openjpac/>. The <openjpac/> will enhance all classes mentioned in persistence.xml (which has to be in the classpath) <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?><projectname="JpaEntitiesLibrary"default="default"basedir="."><description>Builds, tests, and runs the project JpaEntitiesLibrary.</description><importfile="nbproject/build-impl.xml"/><targetname="-post-compile"><echomessage="begin openJPAC"/><pathid=""><pathelementlocation="${build.classes.dir}"/><!-- Adding the OpenJPA jars into the classpath --><filesetdir="C:\Users\ecerulm\Downloads\apache-openjpa-1.

Derby 10.5 "OFFSET/FETCH" and JPA

It seems that no current JPA implementation is able to paginate the result using Apache Derby 10.5 OFFSET/FETCH mechanism. So javax.persistence.Query setFirstResult and setMaxResults don’t really translate into proper pagination with “OFFSET/FETCH” TopLink/EclipseLink org.eclipse.persistence.platform.database.DerbyPlatform Hibernate org.hibernate.dialect.DerbyDialect OpenJPA. org.apache.openjpa.jdbc.sql.DerbyDictionary

JTable, Beans Binding and JPA pagination

In my previous post I talk about JTable and JPA pagination through a custom TableModel. Now working directly with TableModel is not want you want to do, you want to use Beans Bindings because it means less manual coding and a lot of help from the IDE (like Netbeans). With netbeans you can easily bind a JTable to the result list of JPA query. But if that Query returns thousands of rows it’s going to be slow or unfeasible.

JTable and JPA Pagination through custom TableModel

I really want to talk about JTable, Beans Binding and JPA pagination but I think I need to write about JTable and JPA pagination first. So I will take the Beans binding stuff in another post. By the way, choose wisely your JPA Provider/DB Provider combination, as some combinations will not give you any real paginations at all. For example, neither OpenJPA, Hibernate or TopLink/EclipseLink seems to support Apache Derby pagination (OFFSET/FETCH).
