How to handle autocomplete in browsers

Sometimes we face a problem while opening forms. There are some fields in the form that are always pre-filled whenever that form is opened. This is because of the auto-fill feature of the browser.

To solve that simple put the autocomplete="off" in form tag like below:

<form name="frmUser" method="post" action="test" autocomplete="off">
Name : <input type="text" name="name" />
</form>

According to the mozilla https://developer.mozilla.org/en/How_to_Turn_Off_Form_Autocompletion this happens because we are using the the two fileds in our form i.e. NAME and ADDRESS. 
Like in the above form we have used the label Name. To resolve this issue we can do the following:
Simply include the name using span as below

<form name="frmUser" method="post" action="test" autocomplete="off">
<Name : <input type="text" name="abc" />
</form>

So, before making forms to production make sure to change the NAME and ADDRESS like above
Enjoy the autocomplete="off" :)

Getting height and width of image in Java

Yesterday I was working on something that requires manipulation of image for getting its properties. After searching over the internet I found a very intersting class on Java i.e ImageIO and BufferedImage class. These classes are good enough to manipulate images. there are many other claases also. But what I need i got it from these. I found many developers searching over internet for getting properties of image and there is no good small example for that. Thats why I thought why not creating a simple code to manipulate the image and help the developers. Here is the small code that helps to get the height and width of the image. Enjoy it!! import java.awt.image.BufferedImage; import java.io.File; import java.io.IOException; import javax.imageio.ImageIO; public class GetImage { public static void main(String[] args) { try { File f = new File("E:/Vinod/Docs/Pics/krishna_01.jpg"); BufferedImage image = ImageIO.read(f); int height = image.getHeight(); in

Struts 2 Hello World Example

I had seen many new deveopers struggling against struts2 hello world example. So I decided to write a small example. Below are the required libraries to run this example which are easily availabel struts2-core-2.1.8.1 xwork-core-2.1.6 commons-logging-1.0.4 commons-logging-api-1.1 freemarker-2.3.8 ognl-2.7.3 commons-fileupload-1.2 The structure of the applictaion which I am following is (Eclipse IDE) Struts2Demo |---src | |----org | | |----vinod | | | |----action | | | | |----HelloWorld।java |---struts.xml |---WebContent | |---jsp | |---HelloWorld।jsp |---index.jsp |---WEB-INF | |---lib | |---web.xml Struts 2 in Action It is true that different IDE's use different structure, but at last when war is build they follow same structure.

Struts 2 Ajax drop down Example

Struts 2 has emerged as boon for developers. But the documentation available is very small. So I had decided to give a brief demonstration of the ajax used in struts 2.1.8.1 Libraries used: commons-beanutils-1.7.0.jar commons-fileupload-1.2.jar commons-logging-1.1.jar commons-logging-api-1.1.jar freemarker-2.3.8.jar struts2-core-2.1.8.1.jar struts2-dojo-plugin-2.1.8.1.jar xwork-core-2.1.6.jar In this example when u select from one drop down the other will populate accordingly. You can use it as it is or play with it. Enjoy !! index.jsp <%@ taglib prefix="s" uri="/struts-tags" %> <s:action name="ListingAction" executeResult="true"></s:action> listing.jsp <%@ taglib prefix="s" uri="/struts-tags"%> <%@ taglib prefix="sx" uri="/struts-dojo-tags"%> Listing detail.jsp <%@ taglib prefix="s" uri="/struts-tags"
