[Update] Monitoring tomcat instances

Here are some OSS projects to monitor your tomcat instances (f.e. memory-/cpu-usage, sessions, mbeans)

Off course you can also monitor your tomcat via VisualVM (http://visualvm.java.net/ or included in JDK6)

Update: Or use JRDS http://jrds.fr/

[Quicktip] faster usage of FreeMind

FreeMind (an open-source mindmapping tool) has some handy features, which may also improve your productivity:

  • Shortcuts: Use the shortcuts like ENTER and INSERT and navigate via the ARROW keys!
  • Creating subnodes from your clipboard: If there are several lines of text in the clipboard and you paste its content into FreeMind while a node is selected, then several subnodes will be created. That is really cool and i discovered it by accident!

FreeMind can be downloaded from http://freemind.sourceforge.net/
