The way I use VirtualBox

Virtualization is everywhere. VirtualBox ( is not new, I have used it for quite a while now but haven't really digged deeper into it. Today a colleague at work told me more about it and I got to love its command line tool: VBoxManage - which you can use to basically do everything that the GUI can do, too, plus more. I'll introduce one nice little feature I came to love today in this very blog post.

request.getInputStream(): Tomcat vs. Weblogic

At work I had a weird problem the other day. The product I am working on is a web application - deployed as a .war archive. We usually use a Tomcat (5.5 or 6.0) servlet container and everything works fine: We have POST requests and append byte data to it. We keep a request open and put as many bytes in it as we want (of course this depends on the use case). Now for a client we had to deploy the application on an Oracle Weblogic Server (version 10.3) and found an interesting problem. I will only be talking about the server side code and can't publish the whole application, sorry about that.
