Separate Multiple Console View On Eclipse

November 11, 2015 Leave a comment

This is simple stuff, but need to write for archive ..

In eclipse, we can have two console views… On the console view, you have a menu (#4) called ‘new console view’ . If we click this and select option 4 (new console view), you will see two consoles.

You can select which output you want to see on each console by clicking the ‘display selected console’ button (second button from the right on the console view).

Or if you want to stick with current application log, just click ‘Pin Console’

Running Multiple Java Version On OSX

September 6, 2015 Leave a comment

Currently i have several projects using different version java, the oldest one using java 1.6, and the new one using 1.8 which is need lambda expression supported by latest version of java.

and i have only one machine that running OSX yosemite, sometimes i need run java 1.6 and sometimes need java 1.8 as my default running java version.

Below is quick guide how to install multiple java and switch between them easily and fast.

  1. Install Java , from the oldest version to the latest one. 1.6, 1.7 then 1.8. Do not from the latest one or you will get problem when installing the old one.
  2. Check the default java, using command : java -version Screen Shot 2015-09-06 at 7.38.49 PM
  3. Create simple script as below :
    1. first create script to set JAVA_HOME variable with version using shell input
      • export JAVA_HOME=$(/usr/libexec/java_home -v $1)
    2. Second create Symbolic Link from JAVA_HOME to CurrentJDK [for elcapiten, no need this step]
      • sudo ln -nsf ${JAVA_HOME%/*} /System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/CurrentJDK
      • option s , for create symbolic, option f force symbolic link with unlink first if symbolic link already exist, option n , prevent symbolic link if source or target is symbolic link
    3. Put the script into /etc/profile, named for example usejava
      • usejava() { export JAVA_HOME=$(/usr/libexec/java_home -v $1)

        #For Elcapiten, please comment out this line below#

        sudo ln -nsf ${JAVA_HOME%/*} /System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/CurrentJDK}usejava 1.6

  4. For change default java, just use command :
    1. usejava 1.6 –> switch 1.6 as default version
    2. usejave 1.7 –> switch 1.7 as default version
    3. usejava 1.8 –> swicth 1.8 as default version

Rails + Mysql OSX

April 9, 2015 Leave a comment

Today when running rails application using agains MySQL Database, got the following error :


The strange thing is mysql already installed on my machine :

1. mysql 2015-04-09 16-11-47

Seems rails cannot locate libmysqlclient.18.dylib which is located in /usr/local/mysql/lib/libmysqlclient.18.dylib

because by default rails locate that file in /usr/lib folder.

Simple solution for this problem is creating symlink from /usr/local/mysql/lib to /usr/lib.

2. bash 2015-04-09 16-15-21

Update for ElCapiten:

if throw Operation Not permitted, change target folder from /usr/lib to /usr/local/lib

and now rails can start perfectly ..
