Java Comment //$NON-NLS-1$

$NON-NLS x$ is specifically for externalization and internationalization. It marks a string as being inappropriate for externalization. Eclipse and potentially other IDEs can be configured to present warnings when strings are hardcoded into a program so that programmers remember to externalize. NLS stands for National Language Support.

The number after $NON-NLS- signifies which string on the tagged line the tag is for. The number 1 works for you, likely because there is only 1 string on the line your are trying to tag.

If you had 2 strings on the same line, you can, for example, tag only the second string using $NON-NLS-2$.

//Warning on "baz"
foo("bar","baz"); //$NON-NLS-1$

//Warning on "bar"
foo("bar","baz"); //$NON-NLS-2$

//No warnings
foo("bar","baz"); //$NON-NLS-1$  //$NON-NLS-2$

//Warning on "baz" (apparently the slashes are required even with multiple tags)
foo("bar","baz"); //$NON-NLS-1$  $NON-NLS-2$

Exploring Node.js Internals

I found a great article explaining Node JS internals, must read :

Some other articles :

Introduction to Node.jsBeing an official website, explains what Node.js is, as well as its package managers, and lists web frameworks built on top of it.“JavaScript & Node.js”, The Node Beginner BookThis book by Manuel Kiessling does a fantastic job of explaining Node.js, after warning that JavaScript in the browser is not the same as the one in Node.js, even though both are written in the same language.Beginning Node.jsThis beginner book goes beyond an explanation of the runtime. It teaches about packages and streams and creating a web server with the Express framework.LibUVThis is the official documentation of the supporting C++ code of the Node.js runtime.V8This is the official documentation of the JavaScript engine that makes it possible to write Node.js with JavaScript. x

How to check if environment variable is set using shell script?

If you are wondering how can we check whether an environment variable is set or not in the system, here are few methods :
1. Manually a. Run “set” command on the shell prompt, it will list out all the variables set in the system : # set b. Run “echo” command on the shell to print the value of the environment variable : # echo $<environment variable>
2. Through Shell Script Let say we intent to check whether environment variable “envVar” is set or not?
a. Method 1 – checking if “envVar” is set to “” (no value) : if [ "$envVar" == "" ] then echo “envVar is not set” else echo “envVar is set” fi
b.Method 2 – checking if “envVar” is non NULL : if [ -n "$envVar" ] then echo “envVar has non NULL value, it is set.” else echo “envVar has NULL value, it is not set.” fi
