Launching Java API for oEmbed 1.0 Specification

I am happy to announce the launch of oEmbed Java API project. This is an implementation of the oEmbed specification. The aim of this project:

  • Minimal external dependency. Maybe, the only external dependency I forsee is for JSON parsing.

  • XML parsing is done by super-fast StAX.

  • API should be easily extendable.

  • Validation for compliance to the specification should be in place.

  • Should be available in Maven public repository.

The initial version of the code is committed in the mercurial repository---interested hackers, have a look!

JFind by Tom Ball

During my younger days, I remember visiting:

This became one of my most valuable tool in my Java programming life. The tool basically finds the Jar file(s) which has the searched class in it. The tool is executable from command-line.

The trouble with the tool was unavailability of it in binary-executable form. So I had copy of this tool in my cloud drives so that I can fetch from any machine any time.

Recently I was in need of this tool, again. I thought: would it not be good if I am able to build the tool and give an executable version of it, for all to download? So it is here:
