Shale boulders

Hello, GatorJUG!

Welcome to your new home on the web. This is going to be a much more sociable place to get together - virtually. Our legacy site,, will still be available for static info. Check the Codetown Events section for meeting info.

Meanwhile, take a look around CodeTown while you're here. This framework is Java-based with a PHP front end. We've got many groups here to peruse. Our meetings will be listed in the Events section.

Have fun!

All the best,

We had such a great time at First Magnitude I think we'll make a habit of it! When the sun sets, they have a firepit and ample seating. We can even toss a frisbee - here's one before First Magnitude…Continue

Found the answer to my 'how to add a .jar file to eclipse' question.

First, you 'manually' create a lib folder and put the .jar files there.  But it is not enough to close and reopen eclipse, you must right click on the project name and select Refresh. (That's the part I was stuck on-couldn't figure out why they weren't appearing)

Then it's Project->Properties->Libraries->Add External Jars.

For some reason I have never really gotten a handle on the java classpath.  Here's what I need to do:

I'm using Eclipse and I need to add a third party .jar file - SigPlus2.jar to my classpath.  Near as I can figure I can add a jar file to my project which at the same time adds it to the classpath (?)

So my question is, how do I add third party .jar files to an eclipse project?

Web searchs have not yet been successfull, but just posting this question increases my chances of finding the answer.

HowStuffWorks "How Cloud Computing Works"

In a cloud computing system, there's a significant workload shift. Local computers no longer have to do all the heavy lifting when it comes to running applications. The network of computers that make up the cloud handles them instead. Hardware and software demands on the user's side decrease. The only thing the user's computer needs to be able to run is the cloud computing system's interface software, which can be as simple as a Web browser, and the cloud's network takes care of the rest...

Cloud computing - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Cloud computing is the delivery of computing as a service rather than a product, whereby shared resources, software, and information are provided to computers and other devices as a utility (like the electricity grid) over a network (typically the Internet).
