@Tamás Szelei, thx, corrected. I took this project: eclipse-jmx and they are actually hosted on github, although referenced at Google code.

comment moving from Windows to Linux
@SK-logic, Precisely. Without engaging into yet another religious war, please consider the following. For mere strategic and financial reasons, MS target the largest audience possible. Technical stuff that computer aware users would like to be able to control are buried away out of sight so that the Joneses don't run into problems. You end up with red tape everywhere DEP, GPO, "Trusted installer", private or hidden APIs, "self repairing boot", etc. Geeks don't fix Windows, they just opt out. Linux does not have the same hegemonic goal; it's done by users for users. That's the whole point.

Hm, recompile the kernel with your custom settings ? Develop an "installable file system" without paying big bucks for the license ?

+1, for "Things that are easy in Windows are harder in Linux; things that are impossible in Windows are possible in Linux". I'd add "Whereas Windows pushes pre-digested food in your mouth, with Linux you have the possibility to cook and the reward for this is that you get to eat what you like"... Of course, whether it's edible or not depends a lot on how good a chef you are...

comment What is the best way to work with large databases in Java depending on context?
When talking about JDBC performance, I believe one cannot avoid entering into specifics. I'd therefore be interested in some additional detail: you did not mention the type of databases (just oracle or also mysql postgres informix db2...). Also some metrics. For instance order of magnitude of the data size (eg > 1TB), number of tables (eg > 1000), columns (eg > 20000) and number of records for large tables ( > 10 millions). For Oracle, use of partitioning... etc...
