Nice blog article about Java’s pass-by-reference semantics. I still think Kathy Sierra’s Campfire Story Pass-by-Value Please is a good an explanation of this difficult concept as you’ll find. And it’s nice and memorable. Kathy and Bert Bates make good use of the analogy in Head First Java too.
p>Thanks to Val’s Blog.
I need to develop a web application to allow student upload of Java programs for testing. A Jython servlet with some form of template engine for presentation may be part of the solution (full framework J2EE application seems overkill!). I came across several interesting articles after a simple Google search for Velocity and Jython. This one is definitely worth another look later: Pythlet.
So you can blog by email … does it work?
Yes it does!
This must be at least the third incarnation of the Fresh and Crispy blog. Maybe this’ll last longer than the others.
