advantages and disadvantages of software developing as a job

by Hamid Reza Fahimi Madjd @ Dec 25, 2007

2 days ago my English teacher asked me that wrote a note about advantages and disadvantages of my job.

Today, I'm going to talk about advantages and disadvantages of Software Developing as a job. However it's my current job and I'm indisputable satisfied with that, but I promise I'll write about that candidly.

At first let's talk about advantages of Software Developing.
As you know, nowadays IT (Information Technology) is using in any kind of industries and careers so you have a variety job opportunities that help you find your ideal job. In addition salaries are good, if you can achieve to middle level knowledge about your field you will have a reasonable salaries. Also according that job you will be up-to-date and know today’s knowledge.

And about disadvantages...

One of them is sore eyes, yes; it's a real about who work with computers more than 2-3 hours a day.
And another bad thing is backache, because you sit back of compute for long time without any movement.
Also the worst disadvantages is (in my opinion) you don't have any deal with people and you should engage in stupid computer ;)

As you see, I mentioned just 3 cons and pros about my job but there are a lot that I didn't write about them.
I think every body can increase advantages of his/her job and decrease disadvantage of that.
For example, I can improve my knowledge for making more money and getting promotion, have a regular sport program for avoiding illness and company in social activities for making up deal with computer.

deploy war file without lib in Tomcat

by Hamid Reza Fahimi Madjd @ Dec 12, 2007

At this post I'd talk about how to decrease size of big war files and make deployment faster.
I have a 15 MB war file and the size of lib (jar files) directory is 14.8 MB! So I need a solution that enables me to upload my project lib directory just for once and after that deploy my war file without lib directory.

At first I renamed my lib directory to myprojlib and then copied (for example using ftp) it to ${tomcat home}/common/lib folder on the server.
After that I modify file in ${tomcat home}/conf and add my myprojlib path to common.loader according below:


After that I remove lib folder from my project and compile it without lib directory. Be careful don't package jar files in your project. My war file is 180KB now and I deploy it easily and I shouldn’t deploy 15 MB war file every time.

first wintery mountain climbing

by Hamid Reza Fahimi Madjd @ Dec 22, 2007

1. My wife and I went to first wintery mountain climbing on Friday. The weather was cold (around -6 C) but it's sunny. At first we had some problems with our crampons but i found their temper ;)

Everything was ok but when we was returning my knee got pain. One or two month ago I went to doctor and he said "it's not important , but you should strengthen your knee" !

Anyhow that was fantastic for us. You can see some pictures about that below.


2. Today my intellij IDEA made me crazy, when I compiled and ran my j2ee App, appeared situation as coma after one or two click on links! I couldn't understand what's wrong. God, help me :(

3. I found a page that lists all irregular verbs in English language, enjoy it.
