Creating plugins for jQuery is a relatively straightforward task, however poorly named plugins can conflict with one another (or even with core jQuery functionality). I have seen numerous attempts at solving this problem which each have their advantages and disadvantages.

My Art Gallery (http://my-art-gallery.co.uk/) is my fathers online art gallery which features most of his artwork.

My fascination of sudoku started when I was working down the family store; one of my coworkers would do sudoku puzzles during quiet periods. He showed me how to play and I started to wonder how people would actually create the puzzles. I figured that the easiest approach would be to start with a completed grid and then remove as many numbers as possible.

I attempted to use the ‘JMUnit’ unit testing library that is shipped with NetBeans for the first time today. I created a couple of simple
TestCaseclasses and a
TestSuitethat combines each of these. However, every time I attempted to load the test suite I was presented with the following exception:
