How do I get Java support on Google Chrome in Linux?

Yes, add --enable-plugins to your chrome command. It's currently not considered stable, but it works for me.

Actually, it seems to just work without that. Have you tried it? You can find a test applet here. Presumably you'll need Sun's Java installed.

Zombie process using 100% CPU

The process has already been reparented to init, so it should be being reaped (otherwise, the solution would likely be to kill its parent). It appears to be stuck in exit, based on the WCHAN field.

It may actually be doing something (like creating a core dump) that will finish and it will go away on its own. Unfortunately, it's likely spinning in the kernel because of a broken driver and ultimately, your only option will be to reboot.

Identifying lost physical memory

Linux uses the policy of reclaiming, but not marking as "really free" any recently used memory (on the theory that scrubbing it costs effort, leaving the stuff around in case somebody uses it again costs nothing and may save a bundle). Don't worry about "free memory" reports. Look at how much (if any) swap is being used (swap is essentially a disk space for memory requirements that really overflow physical memory; disk is extremely slow, you don't want to need it). If you are worried about performance, install and configure monitoring software like the infamous sar (sysstat, surely there is a package for your system), it will record what is going on in minute detail for later perusal. With said reports in hand you'll know what (if anything) is your bottleneck. The quip that "Premature optimization is the root of all evil" is because people are notoriously bad at guessing where the real performance problems are, and end "fixing" something that is working perfectly fine.

How to schedule a java program to run Every day?

For Linux, have a look at cron jobs.

First, install your cronjob by running the following command:

# crontab -e

To run a job everyday 5 minutes after midnight, append the following:

5 0 * * * /path/to/command

Save and close the file.

For Windows, have a look at scheduled tasks.

install sun java 6 and sun java 7 side-by-side on linux (fedora 16) using rpm

jdk-7u2-linux-x64.rpm is newer than jdk-6u30-linux-amd64.rpm and the RPM package management tool is smart enough to overwrite it with the newer release.

The easiest way to install sun java 6 and sun java 7 side-by-side is to download the Java tarballs from Oracle and extract them into /opt

How to get back to Oracle Java after installing OpenJDK

You should be able to keep both versions without a problem. I found a link that describes how to switch between Java versions on Ubuntu.

To switch between Java versions:

sudo update-alternatives --config java

To switch better javac (complier) versions:

sudo update-alternatives --config javac

Good operating system/virtualization layer combination for running dual screen with XP in a vm instance?

You can use a virtual machine to do this, and allow it to operate in seamless mode.

VirtualBox is a nice cross-platform, free application which allows you to do this. You can emulate nearly every operating system under one-another. The full list of compatible guest operating systems can be found here.

The following is Mac OS X emulating Windows XP in seamless mode:

VirtualBox Seamless Mode Example

You could essentially have the two taskbars running with eachother, and move applications to and from monitors as you please. You might want to see this thread on the Ubuntu Forums for more information, or this section in the VirtualBox manual.

In what directory should I install Jetty on Ubuntu Linux?

An 'apt-get install jetty' would install jetty 5.1.14-1 in /usr/share/jetty. Check out the file list found here: http://packages.ubuntu.com/hardy/all/jetty/filelist

This might be useful for orientation while manualy installing jetty 6.1.14.

Hope this helps.

description

The java tool launches a Java application. It does this by starting a Java runtime environment, loading a specified class, and invoking that class’s main method.

The method must be declared public and static, it must not return any value, and it must accept a String array as a parameter. The method declaration must look like the following:

public static void main(String args[])

By default, the first non-option argument is the name of the class to be invoked. A fully-qualified class name should be used. If the -jar option is specified, the first non-option argument is the name of a JAR archive containing class and resource files for the application, with the startup class indicated by the Main-Class manifest header.

The Java runtime searches for the startup class, and other classes used, in three sets of locations: the bootstrap class path, the installed extensions, and the user class path.

Non-option arguments after the class name or JAR file name are passed to the main function.

options

The launcher has a set of standard options that are supported on the current runtime environment and will be supported in future releases. In addition, the current implementations of the virtual machines support a set of non-standard options that are subject to change in future releases.

exit status

The following exit values are generally returned by the launcher, typically when the launcher is called with the wrong arguments, serious errors, or exceptions thrown from the Java Virtual Machine. However, a Java application may choose to return any value using the API call System.exit(exitValue).

o

0: Successful completion

o

>0: An error occurred

notes

The -version:release command line option places no restrictions on the complexity of the release specification. However, only a restricted subset of the possible release specifications represent sound policy and only these are fully supported. These policies are:

1.

Any version, represented by not using this option.

2.

Any version greater than an arbitrarily precise version-id. For example:

"1.6.0_10+"
This would utilize any version greater than 1.6.0_10. This is useful for a case where an interface was introduced (or a bug fixed) in the release specified.

3.

A version greater than an arbitrarily precise version-id, bounded by the upper bound of that release family. For example:

"1.6.0_10+&1.6*"

4.

"Or" expressions of items 2. or 3. above. For example:

"1.6.0_10+&1.6* 1.7+"
Similar to item 2. this is useful when a change was introduced in a release (1.7) but also made available in updates to previous releases.

standard options

-client

Select the Java HotSpot Client VM. A 64-bit capable jdk currently ignores this option and instead uses the Java Hotspot Server VM.
For default VM selection, see Server-Class Machine Detection @
http://docs.oracle.com/javase/7/docs/technotes/guides/vm/server-class.html

-server

Select the Java HotSpot Server VM. On a 64-bit capable jdk only the Java Hotspot Server VM is supported so the -server option is implicit.
For default VM selection, see Server-Class Machine Detection @
http://docs.oracle.com/javase/7/docs/technotes/guides/vm/server-class.html

-agentlib:libname[=options]

Load native agent library libname, e.g.
-agentlib:hprof
-agentlib:jdwp=help
-agentlib:hprof=help
For more information, see JVMTI Agent Command Line Options @
http://docs.oracle.com/javase/7/docs/platform/jvmti/jvmti.html#starting.

-agentpath:pathname[=options]

Load a native agent library by full pathname. For more information, see JVMTI Agent Command Line Options @
http://docs.oracle.com/javase/7/docs/platform/jvmti/jvmti.html#starting.

-classpath classpath
-cp classpath

Specify a list of directories, JAR archives, and ZIP archives to search for class files. Class path entries are separated by colons (:). Specifying -classpath or -cp overrides any setting of the CLASSPATH environment variable.
If -classpath and -cp are not used and CLASSPATH is not set, the user class path consists of the current directory (.).
As a special convenience, a class path element containing a basename of * is considered equivalent to specifying a list of all the files in the directory with the extension .jar or .JAR (a java program cannot tell the difference between the two invocations).
For example, if directory foo contains a.jar and b.JAR, then the class path element foo/* is expanded to a A.jar:b.JAR, except that the order of jar files is unspecified. All jar files in the specified directory, even hidden ones, are included in the list. A classpath entry consisting simply of * expands to a list of all the jar files in the current directory. The CLASSPATH environment variable, where defined, will be similarly expanded. Any classpath wildcard expansion occurs before the Java virtual machine is started -- no Java program will ever see unexpanded wildcards except by querying the environment. For example; by invoking System.getenv("CLASSPATH").
For more information on class paths, see Setting the Class Path @
http://docs.oracle.com/javase/7/docs/technotes/tools/index.html#classpath.

-Dproperty=value

Set a system property value.

-d32
-d64

Request that the program to be run in a 32-bit or 64-bit environment, respectively. If the requested environment is not installed or is not supported, an error is reported.
Currently only the Java HotSpot Server VM supports 64-bit operation, and the "-server" option is implicit with the use of -d64. And the "-client" option is ignored with the use of -d64. This is subject to change in a future release.
If neither -d32 nor -d64 is specified, the default is to run in a 32-bit environment, except for 64-bit only systems. This is subject to change in a future release.

-enableassertions[:<package name>"..." | :<class name> ]
-ea[:<package name>"..." | :<class name> ]
-disableassertions[:<package name>"..." | :<class name> ]
-da[:<package name>"..." | :<class name> ]

Disable assertions. This is the default.
With no arguments, disableassertions or -da disables assertions. With one argument ending in "...", the switch disables assertions in the specified package and any subpackages. If the argument is simply "...", the switch disables assertions in the unnamed package in the current working directory. With one argument not ending in "...", the switch disables assertions in the specified class.
To run a program with assertions enabled in package com.wombat.fruitbat but disabled in class com.wombat.fruitbat.Brickbat, the following command could be used:
java -ea:com.wombat.fruitbat... -da:com.wombat.fruitbat.Brickbat
<Main Class>
The -disableassertions and -da switches apply to all class loaders and to system classes (which do not have a class loader). There is one exception to this rule: in their no-argument form, the switches do not apply to system. This makes it easy to turn on asserts in all classes except for system classes. A separate switch is provided to enable asserts in all system classes; see -disablesystemassertions below. Enable assertions. Assertions are disabled by default.
With no arguments, enableassertions or -ea enables assertions. With one argument ending in "...", the switch enables assertions in the specified package and any subpackages. If the argument is simply "...", the switch enables assertions in the unnamed package in the current working directory. With one argument not ending in "...", the switch enables assertions in the specified class.
If a single command line contains multiple instances of these switches, they are processed in order before loading any classes. So, for example, to run a program with assertions enabled only in package com.wombat.fruitbat (and any subpackages), the following command could be used:
java -ea:com.wombat.fruitbat... <Main Class>

The -enableassertions and -ea switches apply to all class loaders and to system classes (which do not have a class loader). There is one exception to this rule: in their no-argument form, the switches do not apply to system. This makes it easy to turn on asserts in all classes except for system classes. A separate switch is provided to enable asserts in all system classes; see -enablesystemassertions below.

-enablesystemassertions
-esa

Enable asserts in all system classes (sets the default assertion status for system classes to true).

-disablesystemassertions
-dsa

Disables asserts in all system classes.

-help or -?

Display usage information and exit.

-jar

Execute a program encapsulated in a JAR file. The first argument is the name of a JAR file instead of a startup class name. In order for this option to work, the manifest of the JAR file must contain a line of the form Main-Class: classname. Here, classname identifies the class having the public static void main(String[] args) method that serves as your application’s starting point. See the jar(1) and the Jar trail of the Java Tutorial @
http://docs.oracle.com/javase/tutorial/deployment/jar for information about working with Jar files and Jar-file manifests. 
When you use this option, the JAR file is the source of all user classes, and other user class path settings are ignored.
Note that JAR files that can be run with the "java -jar" option can have their execute permissions set so they can be run without using "java -jar". Refer to Java Archive (JAR) Files @
http://docs.oracle.com/javase/7/docs/technotes/guides/jar/index.html.

-javaagent:jarpath[=options]

Load a Java programming language agent, see java.lang.instrument @
http://docs.oracle.com/javase/7/docs/api/java/lang/instrument/package-summary.html.

-jre-restrict-search

Include user-private JREs in the version search.

-no-jre-restrict-search

Exclude user-private JREs in the version search.

-showversion

Display version information and continue. (See also -version.)

-splash:imagepath

Show splash screen with image specified by imagepath.

-verbose
-verbose:class

Display information about each class loaded.

-verbose:gc

Report on each garbage collection event.

-verbose:jni

Report information about use of native methods and other Java Native Interface activity.

-version

Display version information and exit. (See also -showversion.)

-version:release

Specifies that the version specified by release is required by the class or jar file specified on the command line. If the version of the java command invoked does not meet this specification and an appropriate implementation is found on the system, the appropriate implementation will be used.
release
not only can specify an exact version, but can also specify a list of versions called a version string. A version string is an ordered list of version ranges separated by spaces. A version range is either a version-id, a version-id followed by a star (*), a version-id followed by a plus sign (+) , or two version-ranges combined using an ampersand (&). The star means prefix match, the plus sign means this version or greater, and the ampersand means the logical anding of the two version-ranges. For example:
-version:"1.6.0_13 1.6*&1.6.0_10+"

The meaning of the above is that the class or jar file requires either version 1.6.0_13, or a version with 1.6 as a version-id prefix and that is not less than 1.6.0_10.. The exact syntax and definition of version strings may be found in Appendix A of the Java Network Launching Protocol & API Specification (JSR-56).
For jar files, the usual preference is to specify version requirements in the jar file manifest rather than on the command line.
See the following NOTES section for important policy information on the use of this option.

Non-Standard Options

-X

Display information about non-standard options and exit.

-Xint

Operate in interpreted-only mode. Compilation to native code is disabled, and all bytecodes are executed by the interpreter. The performance benefits offered by the Java HotSpot VMs’ adaptive compiler will not be present in this mode.

-Xbatch

Disable background compilation. Normally the VM will compile the method as a background task, running the method in interpreter mode until the background compilation is finished. The -Xbatch flag disables background compilation so that compilation of all methods proceeds as a foreground task until completed.

-Xbootclasspath:bootclasspath

Specify a colon-separated list of directories, JAR archives, and ZIP archives to search for boot class files. These are used in place of the boot class files included in the Java platform JDK. Note: Applications that use this option for the purpose of overriding a class in rt.jar should not be deployed as doing so would contravene the Java Runtime Environment binary code license.

-Xbootclasspath/a:path

Specify a colon-separated path of directires, JAR archives, and ZIP archives to append to the default bootstrap class path.

-Xbootclasspath/p:path

Specify a colon-separated path of directires, JAR archives, and ZIP archives to prepend in front of the default bootstrap class path. Note: Applications that use this option for the purpose of overriding a class in rt.jar should not be deployed as doing so would contravene the Java Runtime Environment binary code license.

-Xcheck:jni

Perform additional checks for Java Native Interface (JNI) functions. Specifically, the Java Virtual Machine validates the parameters passed to the JNI function as well as the runtime environment data before processing the JNI request. Any invalid data encountered indicates a problem in the native code, and the Java Virtual Machine will terminate with a fatal error in such cases. Expect a performance degradation when this option is used.

-Xfuture

Perform strict class-file format checks. For purposes of backwards compatibility, the default format checks performed by the JDK’s virtual machine are no stricter than the checks performed by 1.1.x versions of the JDK software. The -Xfuture flag turns on stricter class-file format checks that enforce closer conformance to the class-file format specification. Developers are encouraged to use this flag when developing new code because the stricter checks will become the default in future releases of the Java application launcher.

-Xnoclassgc

Disable class garbage collection. Use of this option will prevent memory recovery from loaded classes thus increasing overall memory usage. This could cause OutOfMemoryError to be thrown in some applications.

-Xincgc

Enable the incremental garbage collector. The incremental garbage collector, which is off by default, will reduce the occasional long garbage-collection pauses during program execution. The incremental garbage collector will at times execute concurrently with the program and during such times will reduce the processor capacity available to the program.

-Xloggc:file

Report on each garbage collection event, as with -verbose:gc, but log this data to file. In addition to the information -verbose:gc gives, each reported event will be preceeded by the time (in seconds) since the first garbage-collection event.
Always use a local file system for storage of this file to avoid stalling the JVM due to network latency. The file may be truncated in the case of a full file system and logging will continue on the truncated file. This option overrides -verbose:gc if both are given on the command line.

-Xmnsize or -XX:NewSize

Sets the size of the young generation (nursery).

-Xmsn

Specify the initial size, in bytes, of the memory allocation pool. This value must be a multiple of 1024 greater than 1MB. Append the letter k or K to indicate kilobytes, or m or M to indicate megabytes. The default value is chosen at runtime based on system configuration. For more information, see HotSpot Ergonomics @
http://docs.oracle.com/javase/7/docs/technotes/guides/vm/gc-ergonomics.html
Examples:
-Xms6291456
-Xms6144k
-Xms6m

-Xmxn

Specify the maximum size, in bytes, of the memory allocation pool. This value must a multiple of 1024 greater than 2MB. Append the letter k or K to indicate kilobytes, or m or M to indicate megabytes. The default value is chosen at runtime based on system configuration. For more information, see HotSpot Ergonomics @
http://docs.oracle.com/javase/7/docs/technotes/guides/vm/gc-ergonomics.html
Examples:
-Xmx83886080
-Xmx81920k
-Xmx80m

On Solaris 7 and Solaris 8 SPARC platforms, the upper limit for this value is approximately 4000m minus overhead amounts. On Solaris 2.6 and x86 platforms, the upper limit is approximately 2000m minus overhead amounts. On Linux platforms, the upper limit is approximately 2000m minus overhead amounts.

-Xprof

Profiles the running program, and sends profiling data to standard output. This option is provided as a utility that is useful in program development and is not intended to be used in production systems.

-Xrs

Reduces use of operating-system signals by the Java virtual machine (JVM).
In a previous release, the Shutdown Hooks facility was added to allow orderly shutdown of a Java application. The intent was to allow user cleanup code (such as closing database connections) to run at shutdown, even if the JVM terminates abruptly.
Sun’s JVM catches signals to implement shutdown hooks for abnormal JVM termination. The JVM uses SIGHUP, SIGINT, and SIGTERM to initiate the running of shutdown hooks.
The JVM uses a similar mechanism to implement the pre-1.2 feature of dumping thread stacks for debugging purposes. Sun’s JVM uses SIGQUIT to perform thread dumps.
Applications embedding the JVM frequently need to trap signals like SIGINT or SIGTERM, which can lead to interference with the JVM’s own signal handlers. The -Xrs command-line option is available to address this issue. When -Xrs is used on Sun’s JVM, the signal masks for SIGINT, SIGTERM, SIGHUP, and SIGQUIT are not changed by the JVM, and signal handlers for these signals are not installed.
There are two consequences of specifying -Xrs:

o

SIGQUIT thread dumps are not available.

o

User code is responsible for causing shutdown hooks to run, for example by calling System.exit() when the JVM is to be terminated.

-Xssn

Set thread stack size.

-XX:AllocationPrefetchStyle=n

Sets the style of prefetch used during allocation. default=2.

-XX:+AggressiveOpts

Enables aggressive optimization.

-XX:+|-DisableAttachMechanism

This option specifies whether tools (such as jmap and jconsole) are allowed to attach to the JVM. By default, this feature is disabled. That is, attaching is enabled. Example usage:
java -XX:+DisableAttachMechanism

-XXLargePageSizeInBytes=n

This option specifies the maximum size for large pages.

-XX:MaxGCPauseMillis=n

Sets a target for the maximum GC pause time.
This is a soft goal, and the JVM will make its best effort to achieve it.

-XX:NewSize

Sets the size of the young generation (nursery). Sames as -Xmnsize.

-XX:ParallelGCThreads=n

Sets the number of GC threads in the parallel collectors.

-XX:PredictedClassLoadCount=n

This option requires that the UnlockExperimentalVMOptions flag be set first. Use the PredictedClassLoadCount flag if your application loads a lot of classes, and especially if class.forName() is used heavily. The recommended value is the number of classes loaded as shown in the output from -verbose:class.
Example usage:
java -XX:+UnlockExperimentalVMOptions -XX:PredictedClassLoadCount=60013

-XX:+PrintCompilation

Prints verbose output from the HotSpot dynamic runtime compiler.

-XX:+PrintGCDetails -XX:+PrintGCTimeStamps

Prints garbage collection output along with time stamps.

-XX:SoftRefLRUPolicyMSPerMB=0

This flag enables aggressive processing of software references. Use this flag if HotSpot GC is impacted by the software reference count.

-XX:TLABSize=n

Thread local allocation buffers (TLAB) are enabled by default in HotSpot. HotSpot automatically sizes TLABs based on allocation patterns. The -XX:TLABSize option allows fine-tuning the size of TLABs.

-XX:+UseAltSigs

The VM uses SIGUSR1 and SIGUSR2 by default, which can sometimes conflict with applications that signal-chain SIGUSR1 and SIGUSR2. The -XX:+UseAltSigs option will cause the VM to use signals other than SIGUSR1 and SIGUSR2 as the default.

-XX:+|-UseCompressedOops

Enables compressed references in 64-bit JVMs.
This option is true by default.

-XX:+UseConcMarkSweepGC or -XX:+UseG1GC

These flags enable either the Concurrent Mark Sweep (CMS) or the G1 garbage collectors.

-XX:+|-UseLargePages

Use this flag to enable large page support. Large pages are enabled by default on Solaris.

-XX:+UseParallelOldGC

Enables the parallel garbage collectors, which are optimized for throughput and average response time.
