Ultimate Dictionary

I use online dictionary a lot in my work, so here I’m sharing with you an amazing online dictionary tool :

Ultimate Dictionary, a complete collection of dictionaries with which you can look up words right on your Windows desktop. Ultimate Dictionary includes a huge collection of dictionaries that enable you to look up definitions, synonyms and translations to a bunch of different languages.

The program features a very simple, minimalist interface with two main areas: on the left side, you can choose to have either the list of available dictionaries or the list of word results as you search. On the right, you’ll see words’ definitions and/or translations. You can also enable the “Scan” mode in Ultimate Dictionary, which makes the dictionary follow the mouse and displays a pop-up window with the definition of the word right below the cursor.

Ultimate Dictionary is easy to use and performs very fast searches. You can also customize the order in which dictionaries appear, so that you can have your most frequently ones on top of the list.

With Ultimate Dictionary you can look up any word in more than 30 dictionaries at the same time, right from the desktop.

Pros
  • Large variety of dictionaries
  • Special “scan” mode to translate words under the mouse
  • Fast searching
Cons
  • Large installation file
  • You can’t add new dictionaries

Create Runnable Jar - Eclipse Options

When exporting to a Runnable Jar, there are three options in eclipse Helios. Extract required libraries into JARPackage required libraries into JARCopy required libraries into sub folder next to JAR. What are differences : Extract required libraries into JAR - Extracts the actual .class files from the libraries your app uses and puts those .class files inside the runnable JAR. So, the runnable JAR will not only contain the .class files of your application, but also the .class files of all the libraries your application uses. Package required libraries into JAR - Puts the actual JAR files of the libraries into your runnable JAR. Normally, a JAR file within a JAR file cannot be loaded by the JVM. But Eclipse adds special classes to the runnable JAR to make this possible. Copy required libraries into sub folder next to JAR - Keeps the library JARs completely separate from the runnable JAR, so the runnable JAR will only contain the .class files of your application. Option #2 is convenient be…
