  • Free web application vulnerability scanner for Eclipse

    Contrast released Contrast for Eclipse 1.0 already a little while ago. The Eclipse plug-in works as a runtime security scanner and checks for security vulnerabilities in your web application while executing it in Eclipse. Promised by Contrast on Eclipse Marketplace is an Automated detection of OWASP Top 10 vulnerabilities. This is the first free tool […]

  • Remove Checkstyle warnings for certain classes

    Checkstyle warnings for generated or automatically filled classes like in Eclipse RCP can be annoying. But even without the .checkstyle file under version control, it is possible to deactivate Checkstyle warnings for selected files. First you have to add the SuppressionFilter module to your Checkstyle configuration file: <module name=”SuppressionFilter”>  <property name=”file” value=”${samedir}suppressions.xml”/> </module> The […]

  • Solved the Eclipse RCP export failure on OS X

    After a lot of trial and error, I’ve solved the Eclipse RCP export failure on OS X. The solution was to force Eclipse to use Java 1.6 and not the default 1.7. Simply add the following line to your eclipse.ini: -vm /System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/1.6.0/Home/bin/java

  • Eclipse RCP export failure

    Even though the JCrypTool runtime in Eclipse is working perfectly fine, exporting the product via the Product Configuration Editor fails on OS X 10.8.2 with Java 1.7.0_09 (the same happened with 1.7.0_07). Every export crashes after 2 percent with the following exception: /[…]/.metadata/.plugins/org.eclipse.pde.core/temp/org.eclipse.pde.container.feature/[…]/build.xml:31: /Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/jdk1.7.0_09.jdk/Contents/Home/Classes does not exist. The following error occurred while executing this line: […]

  • Alphabetically sorting Eclipse RCP help pages and custom bookmark titles

    Extending the Eclipse help in a RCP is easy. However, there seem to be some hidden features as we have lately discovered for JCrypTool. Since JCrypTool is heavily based on crypto plug-ins which do extend our platform, we do include lots of other plug-ins via anchors in the online help: <topic label=”Signatures” href=”toc.html” sort=”true”>   <anchor […]

  • Apache XML Security 1.5.0 released

    Apache Santuario 1.5.0 has been released. As the release notes point out, this release is not binary compatible with Santuario 1.4 any more. There are some really good updates included, of which I like that Xalan/Xerces are not required dependencies any more the most. Under the covers, support for Java 1.4 was dropped, and generics […]

  • Apache Santuario 1.4.6 available

    A new maintenance release (1.4.6) of Apache Santuario, the Apache XML Security project, is available. The release notes are a little bit confusing. Looks like five bugs were fixed. The new version will be available in the next JCrypTool release.

  • XML Security Tools in danger

    Yes, the XML Security Tools are really in danger. Those of you following the improvement of the project didn‘t see much lately. Not that I'm not interested in Eclipse or XML Security any more. But my free time is very limited and I desperately need a co-developer supporting me and the project. As a first […]

  • EGit 1.1 pushes only the active branch by default

    As it turns out, there is already a fix in EGit 1.1 for the unexpected EGit behavior I described here and here. The new default for EGit 1.1 is to only push the active branch via Push to Upstream in case there is no explicit default spec. More is not possible at the moment due […]

  • EGit pushes all local branches when no explicit RefSpec is found – Update

    As it turns out, some parts of yesterdays' post are not correct: The description of the behavior I expect was OK, but EGit behavior is not correct at all. Have a close look at the Git push spec and the sentence in bold: The special refspec : (or +: to allow non-fast-forward updates) directs git […]
