Go Mom Go!

Today is one of the defining moment for India, which may bring it into group of select few, who can manage interplanetary missions.

India’s first Mars mission, Mars Orbiter Mission (MOM), is scheduled at 2:38 PM IST (1:08 Am PST).

Wish mission control all the luck for successful mission.

I will be awake to root for it. Hope you are too.

Update: Even though lunch is just one step of many before MOM is successful, it has been a perfect launch. Congratulations Launch team.

WSC jar Generation for Salesforce APIs

WSC (Web Service Connector) is a wsdl2java library from Salesforce which makes it easier to interact with Salesforce using various APIs (viz Partner, Apex, Metadata) etc. General workflow is to download the wsc jar, invoke the wsdlc compiler for a given wsdl, which generates the jar file. Then if you are using Maven, then install the generated jar into Maven local repository or your enterprise repository. Doing this for all the wsdls rather tedious and laborious.

I came across this situation and thought about automating the process and the result is force-wsdl2jar. It is maven project which generates the required jars and installs to local Maven repository.

Give it a try and let me know what you think.
