Best freeware - XML editor




As a software developer, I open XML files all the time. I a heavy commercial XML editor. But nothing can compare to a small, thin and free XML editor like 'foxe'.

A great feature is has is the alignment of long XML strings to readable XML format (Shift-F8). It help lot of times when the XML file was generated by some tool and was not readable.

Best freeware - UMLpad


If you need to draw small UML diagram - you can use 'UML pad' tool. It is much simpler than more known tools like 'Visio' and it is free !

More known tools are much too complex for simple diagram.

JBoss error: org.jboss.deployment.DeploymentException: Error during deploy

From time to time, deployment to JBoss fail with strange error:



16:31:28,428 WARN [ServiceController] Problem starting service jboss.web.deployment:war=invoker.war,id=1958881146org.jboss.deployment.DeploymentException: Error during deploy; - nested throwable: (javax.naming.NameNotFoundException: comp not bound) at org.jboss.web.AbstractWebDeployer.start(AbstractWebDeployer.java:380) at org.jboss.web.WebModule.startModule(WebModule.java:83) at org.jboss.web.WebModule.startService(WebModule.java:61) at org.jboss.system.ServiceMBeanSupport.jbossInternalStart(ServiceMBeanSupport.java:289)....



The way to overcome this problem is:
  1. Remove the deployment manually (delete the folder)
  2. Full deploy the application again
  3. Sometimes - even restart the machine because the deploy fails due to some missing resource (like port)
