Unless I am confused and don't see it I think it would be nice to have a forum here where one could post bits of code that would be helpful to others. I am not talking about being sourceforge or anything but I have a couple of classes for example that are generically useful.

Like one that is a basically a byte buffer (without NIO though and it has some improvements I believe) so you can read and write primitives out of bytes. I don't think my explanation is too good but I hope the general drift of idea of what I am talking about comes across.

Perhaps it could also be a repository for sample bits of code like a simple DAO or showing various JDBC connection strategies. Again those are just examples but if all the code was in place I think it would be easier to point to it and it (the forum I have in mind) might well be a valuable resource.

Well just a suggestion... I think I am posting this in the right place. But if not or I am out to lunch please let me know.

How about putting them on our Wiki/Faq. I just made one for JavaIO. Clicking that link will take you straight to that page.

I will have to see if I can figure that out... I am familiar with the wiki concept but I haven't actually used it before. But thanks for the tip.
