You could always check if you qualify using the brogrammer quiz, could be near enough Smiley

When picking your data store I'd say it's not about what language you're writing your code in, but rather what kind of data you're intending to store and what the requirements around reading and writing are.

I would also suggest you stay away from OR frameworks or at least seriously evaluate the pros and cons of using one. They tend to put you in a right mess if you use them the wrong way.

I'm using Lucene for a project at work and I managed to have an index at the third of the size of the original data. I also did some index speed tests.

Test facts
Number of files: 95.000
Total amount of data: 1.13 GB

Test 1 (single thread indexer)
In this first test I just wanted to index all the data.

Time consumed: 12 minutes 12 seconds

Test 2 (multithreaded indexer)
In this second test I used multiple threads to index all the data to see if I could speed things up.
Time consumed: 6 minutes 17 seconds

Test 3 (searching)
My final test was a search test. In this test I have changed one of the 95.000 files to contain my name and I run a search on it.

Time consumed: 93 milliseconds

Those are my very simple test results for Lucene. In the end I went for single thread indexing because I usually don't have that many things to index. I index things as they are added. My test files were basically text files with about 12Kb data each, the typical thing I wanted to index.

Oh and on another note, so that I'm not completely off topic, I did try out Tuer last night, I see you've added some menus etc. Looking good, the mouse movement is somewhat slow for my liking though, dunno if I could change that in some options screen or something.

I'm keen on seeing a version of this where you can actually move up and down as well Cheesy

I've been playing some Lego Star Wars on the Wii lately and the highlighted menu item is alternating between different colours so it sort of looks like its blinking in a way while the other items are just a plain colour.

Maybe you should try and take another approach and not use a separate thread. You could just initialise a frame and keep it referenced and whenever you get a joystick action you set the labels and whatnot on the frame and then you make it visible. Once the 1 second time limit is up you hide the window and start all over. If there is a new action while the window is already open, just reset the timer and change the information in the window.

Maybe you can alter your code somewhat like this.

At the end of your action class.

if(display_window) {
    if(this.displayInfo != null && this.displayInfo.isAlive()) {

    this.displayInfo = new DisplayInfo("title", window_text, 250, 50, 1000);

Also make sure you add a new member to that class called displayInfo which is of type DisplayInfo.

You will also need to modify your DisplayInfo class and add a reference to the created JFrame.

import javax.swing.*;
import java.awt.*;
public class DisplayInfo extends Thread {
    //title and text
    String title;
    String text;

    //size in pixels
    int width = 400;
    int height = 100;

    //time to display in ms
    int time = 3000;

    // The frame
    JFrame frame;

    //class infos
    static int instances = 0;
    static DisplayInfo instance;

    public DisplayInfo(String title, String text, int width, int height, int time) {
        if(instances>0) {
        instance = this;
        this.title = title;
        this.text = text;
        this.width = width;
        this.height = height;
        this.time = time;

    public void run() {
        //Create and set up the window.
        this.frame = new JFrame(title);
        this.frame.setUndecorated(true); //removes the borders

        //add text to the frame
        JLabel label = new JLabel(instances+" - "+text, JLabel.CENTER);
        label.setForeground(new Color(0xBB, 0xBB, 0xBB));

        //set size
        this.frame.setSize(width, height);

        //get screen size
        Toolkit toolkit = Toolkit.getDefaultToolkit();
        Dimension screenSize = toolkit.getScreenSize();

        //Calculate the frame location
        int x = (screenSize.width - frame.getWidth()) / 2;
        int y = ((screenSize.height - frame.getHeight()) / 3) * 2;

        this.frame.getContentPane().setBackground(new Color(0x33, 0x33, 0x33));

        //Display the window.
        this.frame.setLocation(x ,y);

        try {
        } catch(InterruptedException ie) { }


    public void stopInstance() {

    public JFrame getFrame() {
        return this.frame;

Now that will give you a solution for closing the actual frame and the thread should die automatically after your set time anyway. However you might want to consider implementing Runnable instead of extending thread and also adding a boolean with a while loop in the run method because thread.stop() has been deprecated.

I released multiplayer the other day, and registrations shot through the roof. Over 24 hours, I got about 1200 registrations, and there currently are about 200 players playing it online. Holy moly!

Grats Markus, well done!

When I started game programming back in the days I was into C++ myself and I went through most of the OpenGL tutorials on

There are also some nice articles there and alot of the tutorials have been ported to LWJGL and JOGL as well.

Personally I've not ever owned a programming book ever until my employer just bought me the SCJP training book. I'm planning on getting some OpenGL books soon to see what I've missed out on Cheesy

Good luck on your quest of inner knowledge and please post your work in progress in the appropriate forum as well when you feel ready, everyone here are keen on giving guidance and feedback to each other.

Yeah the blacklist seems interesting, there doesn't appear to be a blacklists file with this release though or am I wrong?

The "new" garbage collector is also available in this release for anyone to try it out.

I think it depends on the complexity of what you are about to embark upon. The more complex the more planning. I guess you have to find a balance that will work for the project at hand.

Other than that when coding in Java, it is damned nice to have fun Cheesy

I shall give it another go tonight and check out the tutorials Cheesy

I'm still somewhat confused to why you need the night vision and flares because you can see just fine without them. Maybe it needs to be even darker when you are out there Cheesy

I was also thinking about weather effects, that would be rather cool in higher levels. Makes the flying somewhat more difficult.

Hello all,

I've been playing around with a plugin I found for Maven2 which generates the web start stuff for me including the jnlp file. It will even sign everything for you when you build your project.

Have a look at:

If you decide to try this out and you have any questions, post them here and I will try to be of assistance. Bare in mind I've just stared using it and my support will be limited Cheesy
