The blog post http://worrydream.com/LearnableProgramming/ has an amazing introduction on how a learning environment can show a budding developer the state and execution of a piece of code.
I needed Oracle’s version of Java 7 so that I can develop with the JetBrains WebStorm IDE on my Mint Linux 13 box, and I found that the folks over at Duinsoft have made it real easy to do this.
The basic steps are:-
- put the line
deb http://www.duinsoft.nl/pkg debs all
in the file /etc/apt/sources.list, either using Software Sources from your System Menu or by editing the file in an editor (as root)
put this line in a file named (e.g.) duinsoft.list in the directory /etc/apt/sources.list.d
- import the gpg key with the command (all on one line)
sudo apt-key adv –keyserver keys.gnupg.net –recv-keys 5CB26B26
- enter the commands (two lines)
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install update-sun-jre
or use Synaptic to install the package
installation of the Runtime Environment will follow automatically
The page at Duinsoft details how to more control of the installation process.
It looks like there is a bug in Weld that causes the Conversation Scoped beans to by synchronized during creation.
