Free Joomla 1.6+ Amazon Component

Recently I wanted to integrate Amazon products as ads on my Joomla 1.6 Website. After hours of testing and research I decided to go with the free FSR Amazon Component for Joomla 1.6+.

With help of the component you can utilize the Amazon Web Service (AWS) to integrate Amazon product ads with your Joomla CMS 1.6 or 1.7.
The component comes with an easy to use backend part that allows you to integrate single products or product groups.

Below a feature list of the fsramazon Component:

  • AWS configuratiton

  • Partnernet (Amazon Advertising) Konfiguration

  • Farb-Konfiguration

  • Produktdetail Konfiguration

  • Erstellung von Seo optimierten Seiten

Below the description of the official Website:

With the help of this component products of amazon platforms can be integrated into joomla pages via amazon web service (» aws) and amazons » product advertising API. Not only displaying products in index and item (detail) pages is implemented, but also amazons affiliate program can be used in Fsr Amazon component to earn money.

Blackberry JDE: Eclipse I/O Error: Cannot run program "jar": CreateProcess error=2

The Problem

At one point when I've created a new Screen in my Blackberry JDE Eclipse project I received an error:

Eclipse I/O Error: Cannot run program "jar": CreateProcess error=2

I searched the Internet for solutions and several people stated that this happend for them after the exceeded a certain number of files in their project. After trying different things I found the below solution working for me.

The Solution

The easiest fix for this error is to copy the jar.exe from the Java JDK binary folder to JRE binary folder.

The files is normally under:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jdk1.6.0_27\bin\jar.exe

The version number can be different. But since Blackberry JDE only runs under 32 bit Java/Eclipse is has to be the Java version in the (x86) Program Folder.

Paste the file into:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre6\bin\jar.exe

That's it.
