      Java Data Types

      Data types in the Java programming language are basically divided into two groups – primitive data types and object references. A primitive data type is a basic building block and has full built-in support. Many other languages also support composite data types, which are build on a combination of primitive data types and may or

    • Disassembler

      Disassembler

      A disassembler is a software that is able to convert an executable language into an assembly language, allowing users to view the individual commands that make a program work. A disassembler is ideal for programming applications because it can be useful when a programmer is attempting to create a similar program to one he/she already

    • Java Package

      Java Package

      A Java package is a set of classes which are grouped together. This grouping helps to organize Java classes and codevent multiple Java classes with the same name. Using Java Packages To use a package in your Java source code, you must either import the package or use the fully qualified class name each time

    • Inserting in a Doubly Linked List

      Inserting in a Doubly Linked List

      Inserting an Element To insert an element in the list, the first task is to allocate memory for a new node, assign the element to be inserted to the info field of the node, and then the new node is placed at the appropriate position by adjusting appropriate pointers. Insertion in the list can take

    • Postfix

      Postfix

      The sum of X and Y is written as X+Y where + is the operator while X and Y are the operands. We have always learnt to write the sum of two numbers as X + Y; this notation is know as infix. Here, we’ll be talking about the postfix notation of representing arithmetic operations.

      How to Sign a Java Applet

      Java applets are designed to run in a restricted environment known as Sandbox. This confinement helps avoid malicious activities and breach of security from intentionally harmful applets. Therefore, an applet cannot access or communicate with any outside-the-sandbox resource unless granted permission by the user. The trustworthiness of an applet is showcased by signing it with

    • Race Condition

      Race Condition

      A race condition occurs when multiple processes access and manipulate the same data concurrently, and the outcome of the execution depends on the particular order in which the access takes place. A race condition is of interest to a hacker when the race condition can be utilized to gain privileged system access. Consider the following

      Java

      Java was originally developed as an implementation of a programming language that would compile and complete its directive functions regardless of platform and language version. It was developed by James Gosling, a software developer employed by Sun Microsystems in June of 1991, whom released the first version of Java in 1995. The language is designed

    • Deleting an Element from a Heap

      Deleting an Element from a Heap

      Deleting an Element from the Heap Deletion always occurs at the root of the heap. If we delete the root element it creates a hole or vacant space at the root position. Because the heap must be complete, we fill the hole with the last element of the heap. Although the heap becomes complete, i.e.

    • Random Number Vulnerability

      Random Number Vulnerability

      Computers are deterministic and are therefore predictable. Computers cannot, in and of themselves, generate truly random numbers. In the absence of outside input, computers can only create pseudo-random numbers.  In the words of John Von Neumann, “Anyone attempting to produce random numbers by purely arithmetic means is, of course, in a state of sin.” A
