Apache's Click Framework

Apache Click is a modern JEE web application framework that is designed to be very easy to learn and use. When ever I get time I am planning write a small application using this framework.

Appcelerator's Titanium Development Platform

Recently I landed at Titanium an open source development platform that allows to develop cross-platform native applications easily.

I believe this is the first time a product has been developed that allows us to develop cross-platform native applications for Desktops, Mobile and Tablets using existing web skills like HTML, CSS, JavaScript, Ruby, Python, PHP, etc.

I will start experimenting with Titanium from mid of next week and will keep posting on the same :)

Comodo's Time Machine

Recently I have downloaded and installed Comodo's Time Machine 100% free Data Recovery product and got stunned with its features.

It is very easy to create a snapshot and it alows us to login to console to perform data recovery during system startup :)

I recommend everyone to try this product.

Issue: Having a Web Service Clent and Web Services within the same project


Strangely we have observed an issue when we generated a Web Service client within in the same project where we have Web Servcies hosted using JAX-WS in NetBeans in Tomcat.

For example: Let's assume that in a project named "xyz" we have two Web Services namely and with two Web Service operations in each.

Now if we generate a Web Service client for within the same project in NetBeans using JAX-WS API and its wizard it is impacting What I mean by impacting is we are not able to get properly Request and Response elements for

Strangely if we generate a Web Service client for then we are not facing this issue. This issue here is in a single project if we are exposing 2 or more Web Services and in the same project if we have Web Service clients for only few of them then it impacs the other exposed Web Services.

For a workaround what we did was to have a separate project for consuming Web Services.

Do not know what is the root cause for this
