Why I Rejected a LinkedIn-Originated Offer of 10 Million Euros
LinkedIn is a popular social network for connecting professionals, and I have
an account there. Every day I get an invite to connect with someone.
Typically I ignore these invites unless I know the person. But I’ve never
received invites to connect from a chair of board of directors of a bank.
Till yesterday. So I’ve accepted the invite.
Then I’ve received an LinkedIn email from this woman stating that she had
a business proposition for me, and if I was interested, she was ready to
explain. She also provided her email that ended in outlook.com. I checked her
LinkedIn profile again. Looked legit. She even had a Twitter account with
recent tweets in two languages.
I responded that I was ready to hear about this business proposition. Next
day I’ve received a long email from her explaining how she had a priv... (more)

Pushing Data to Multiple WebSocket Clients From a Java Server
Finished writing the WebSocket chapter for the second edition of my Java 24
Hour Trainer. In this blog I’ll show you one of the code samples from
Pretty often you need to write a program that publishes the same message to
all connected clients. For example, multiple clients of the online auctions
have to be notified when a new bid is placed on the product. Another example
is when a new stock price quote need to be pushed from the server to all
connected clients. With websockets it’s a pretty easy task.
JavaFX 8: The Keyboard Events Are Not Being Processed If a Scene Has Only
I ran into an interesting problems with JavaFX. When the GUI is done in FXML
it seems that if a scene has only shapes (e.g., Rectangle, Circle, etc.) the
handler method doesn’t receive keyboard events. And the problem seems to be
that there is no way (at least I don’t see it) to give a focus to such a
scene. I found a workaround, but I’d appreciate if someone could offer a
cleaner solution or confirm that this is a JavaFX bug.
Here’s a code sample that illustrates the problem and the solution:
