MSDN Library available free for download

Microsoft released MSDN Library May 2006 edition for free download.  Its available in three ISO disk images format (each 600 MB of size) on their website. (news : via – The PC Doctor ).

Its a great news for any Microsoft platform developer who had suffered with Microsoft’s licensing policies with MSDN Library till date.  I guess its a Microsoft’s attempt to get a decent developer community around their Express edition (Free Development tools from Microsoft).

Searching Java API documentation online


Whenever I had to work on some other’s machine to debug any Java application, I miss the Java API documentation to search for any methods.  Today I came across this online search application which allows me to search API documentation for any public Java class

This site also provide handy Firefox / Mozilla search plugin and Eclipse plug-in.
