Spring MVC: mvn sonar fails when mvn test passes

Stranger things have happened. But this blows many a mind. mvn test on a restful services project with spring mvc succeeds but mvn sonar:sonar fails with 404s on controllers. This happens when the controllers are marked @transactional for the restful service to be exposed as a unit of work. Don't fret. Its easy to solve this.

This happens because unlike services which are generally proxied by thier interfaces, Controllers are generally defined without interfaces. The Controller methods are then proxied by cglib (when no interfaces exist) and are no longer visible in their qualified name after instrumention by sonar for code analysis.

Just add proxy-target-class="true" instruction to tx annotation driven in the test context. so the testContext.xml should have the following
<tx:annotation-driven proxy-target-class="true"/>
Where as the main application context can remain without proxying

Javascript: Convert Strings to Binary (and representing in a nerdy way!)

I follow those GoogleDevelopers Videos. Sometime back, in one of the presentations on GoogleIO, there was this interesting string of dots at the bottom of each page of the presentation. They looked like random big and small dots. A similar bunch of dots were also on the T-shirt of a presenter was wearing in another presentation. While it seemed something in the pattern, I could not find what it was. Finally, another presenter cleared the matter that those dots are just binary representation of "GOOGLEIO" (So much for advertizing Google IO, Impressive!).

So I wanna do it. Takes me back to days of those DSP classes at school. Nerdy me had to churn some old brain cells. I remember those first programming language classes in Pascal and C when you were asked to do fibonacci series and converting a binary string to ascii codes. That *experience* came handy here: Check it out!

For those who came to copy the javascript code to convert string to binary, Here it is…
