This screen will vary depending on the features you have installed already. You want to click on the New Remote Site button. If you are behind a proxy and the Eclipse install mechanism does not work, then you can download a zipped version of the update site and then click the New Local Site button instead.

Updating Subclipse in Eclipse 3.x

Eclipse 3.x has a feature in preference to automatically check for updates. Provided you are not behind a proxy that does not allow this feature, it should work for Subclipse. Otherwise just follow the instructions for installing Subclipse, except take the option to check for updates in Step 2.

If you are behind a proxy that does not work with Eclipse, then to install updates you just always follow the same instructions you used to install a new version. If you always unzip the site to the same local folder, you will not have to define the local site each time.


Typical Uses of Cookies in java

– Identifying a user during an e-commerce session tracking of user information.
– Avoiding username and password
– Customizing a siit
– Focusing advertising

Don’t put sensitive info in cookies

Create a Cookie object.                 ==>Cookie c = new Cookie(“userID”, “a1234”);

Set the maximum age.                   ==>c.setMaxAge(60*60*24*7); // One week

Place the Cookie into the HTTP  ==> response  response.addCookie(c);

Reading Cookies from the Client

String cookieName = “userID”;
Cookie[] cookies = request.getCookies();
if (cookies != null) {
for(Cookie cookie: cookies) {
if (cookieName.equals(cookie.getName())) {



Handling Input in Multiple Languages

Use server’s default character set
String firstName =request.getParameter(“firstName”);
Convert  from English (Latin 1) to Japanese


String firstNameWrongEncoding =request.getParameter( firstName );
request getParameter(“firstName”);
String firstName =new String(firstNameWrongEncoding.getBytes(),”Shift_JIS”);


Accept either English or Japanese
request.setCharacterEncoding( JISAutoDetect );
String firstName =request.getParameter(“firstName”);

Debugging Servlets

• Use print statements; run server on desktop
• Use Apache Log4J
• Integrated debugger in IDE
– Right-click in left margin in source to set breakpoint (Eclipse)
– R-click Tomcat and use “Debug” instead of “Start”
R click
• Look at the HTML source
• Return error pages to the client
– Plan ahead for missing or malformed data
• Use the log file
– log(“message”) or log(“message”, Throwable)
• Separate the request and response data.
– Request: see EchoServer at
– Response: see WebClient at
• Make sure browser is not caching
– Internet Explorer: use Shift-RELOAD
– Firefox: use Control-RELOAD
• Stop and restart the server

servlet life cycle

• init
– Executed once when the servlet is first loaded.
Not called for each request.
• service
– Called in a new thread by server for each request.
Dispatches to doGet, doPost, etc.p
Do not override this method!
• doGet, doPost, doBlah
– H dl GET, POST, etc. requests.
Handles GET POST
– Override these to provide desired behavior.
• destroy
– Called when server deletes servlet instance.
Not called after each request.
