SNMP4J - Free Open Source SNMP API for Java

Today I have found SNMP4J - Free Open Source SNMP API for Java ;It looks to be more professional than I had used before

It includes a nice feature [Row-based efficient asynchronous table retrieval with GETBULK] ... so my SnmpGetRow class -that I have inspired its implementation from SnmpWalk- will be of no use any more.

I hope that I will be able to port CLNM to use SNMP4J instead of JoeSnmp

(*) AdventNet Simulation Toolkit help to test SNMP based applications with out a real SNMP Agent.

Unit Testing

How many times we have to develop some sort of applications like a Console or Forms applications to test a class library.

Unit testing is a standard way of testing; .net code can be tested using nUnit

nUnit is a tool that runs the tests you create and show the result is avery organized way.

TestDriven.NET is a tool that enable runnig the tests from within Visual Studio

Read the tutorial on nUnit web site ;it is a fast start

Eclipse Eclipse ... What is going on

Eclipse the IBM initiated open source development IDE and framework has been now in version 3.1
The open source nature acquires tool developers to create plug-ins for GUI building and UML modeling and more

Even major players in development tools are saying that they will use Eclipse as the framework to build the next generation development tools instead of their own technology:_
Borland JBuilder -> Borland Announces JBuilder® Product Roadmap
Macromedia -> Macromedia aligns with Eclipse

another nice open-source project is EasyEclipse which packs many open-source tools and plug-ins along with Eclipse as one package
