Java Encryption and Decryption Tutorial (Basic)

There are a million encryption and decryption algorithms in java. Most of them are complex for security reasons, but in this video, I show you what encryption and decryption algorithms really are at the basic level.

I hope this helps you make your first little encryption algorithm in java :) This is GREAT practice for getting your feet wet with encryption!

How to Install OpenJDK 11 on CentOS 8

What is OpenJDK?

OpenJDk or Open Java Development Kit is a free, open-source framework of the Java Platform, Standard Edition (or Java SE). It contains the virtual machine, the Java Class Library, and the Java compiler. The difference between the Oracle OpenJDK and Oracle JDK is that OpenJDK is a source code reference point for the open-source model. Simultaneously, the Oracle JDK is a continuation or advanced model of the OpenJDK, which is not open source and requires a license to use.

In this article, we will be installing OpenJDK on Centos 8.

How to Encrypt and Set Permissions for a PDF in Java

Proper documentation, intensive contracts, and extensive manuals form the backbone of business, though in modern business, much of this is retained digitally using document file formats such as PDF. Because your organization relies on so many of these forms of documentation, it is integral that you can protect the contents within from errors or outside threats. For the proper precautions to be put in place, utilizing encryption and permissions settings will ensure your PDF documents are only used in ways you deem fit, and cannot be accidentally or maliciously altered by other entities.

Setting these parameters on each document, however, is a daunting and time-consuming task, and, if it is mistakenly forgotten, it can lead to major issues for you and your organization. By using the following two APIs, you can cut this risk as each document will be automatically encrypted with password protection. This password protection includes an owner password to control editor/creator permissions and a user password to control who can view the PDF. Furthermore, our second API shown below will allow you to set additional permissions on the document including the ability to restrict or allow printing, copying content, document assembly, editing (read-only), form filling, modification of annotations, and degraded printing through document Digital Rights Management (DRM).

The goal of this tutorial is to enable you with the capabilities to protect your information and important documents with the appropriate tools. This will help your organization to run more smoothly and provide added security to your operations.

For the first API, we have a few parameters we need to input for the function to work. These parameters include the user password, owner password, encryption key length, and the input PDF file. For encryption key length, the possible values are “128” (128-bit RC4 encryption) and “256” (256-bit AES encryption), with a default of 256.

Going Beyond Java 8: Local Variable Type Inference (var) - DZone Java

According to some surveys, such as JetBrains’s great survey, Java 8 is currently the most used version of Java, despite being a 2014 release.

What you are reading is one in a series of articles titled ‘Going beyond Java 8,’ inspired by the contents of my book, Java for Aliens. These articles will guide you step-by-step through the most important features introduced to the language, starting from version 9. The aim is to make you aware of how important it is to move forward from Java 8, explaining the enormous advantages that the latest versions of the language offer.

In this article, we will talk about the most important new feature introduced with Java 10. Officially called local variable type inference, this feature is better known as the **introduction of the word **var. Despite the complicated name, it is actually quite a simple feature to use. However, some observations need to be made before we can see the impact that the introduction of the word var has on other pre-existing characteristics.

Functions for Strings in Java

In this tutorial, you will learn how to make better use of built-in functions for Strings in Java to program more quickly, effectively, and aesthetically.

What Is a String?

Firstly, of course, we have to initialize our string. What is a string used for?

  • You want to look at your string as a line, not as a mass of symbols.
  • If you have a long text, you want to work with the words, not the letters.
  • If you have lots of information, you need functions that solve questions as quickly as possible.

How to Convert ODT Files to PDF in Java

Convert Office Open Document Text File (ODT) to standard PDF, DOCX, PNG, and JPG using Java.

Microsoft has maintained its position in the spotlight for formatted document creation and editing for good reason. Its extreme ease of use and lack of a learning curve has transformed the Microsoft Office Suite into a household name for most computer users in the United States as well as globally. This is propagated further through its almost ubiquitous use in education, as students are raised and taught using these applications.

The issue that arises with these programs, however, is their operation costs. For Apple and other non-Windows-based Operating Systems, the purchasing fees for Office can be steep. This, then, creates a paywall separating potential users from programs to which they are already accustomed. As an answer this problem, Microsoft created the OpenOffice application, which is a free, opensource version of the classic Office Suite. Within this application, you can perform almost all of the same functions as Office Suite, including creating text documents like one would with Microsoft Word. These text documents can be made using OpenOffice Writer, and are formatted using the .ODT file type. While this file type can be opened and saved using OpenOffice Writer and Word, in order to convert the file to a different format such as PDF you will need to run it through a conversion process.

The following APIs will allow you to convert your ODT documents to PDF, DOCX, PNG, and JPG for use in whatever way you need. The goal of this tutorial is to provide a simple and efficient means for instantly converting your ODT files without needing to find or download any extraneous programming.
