I burnt some midnight oil in getting at least a little minimum skill in writing java 8 code, and compiling them into usable classes. I am an aficionado and connoisseur of Java 8, in the sense that I am not an expert/pundit in Java, but I am very enthusiastic about it, because it is platform-independent, unlike several Windows applications. In the process, I have visited many websites which contain tutorials of Java to study .java files. From this experience I find that there are many magnanimous netizens with generosity, volition, and willingness to share their experiences to new entrants and give their suggestions. I have benefited much from the study of Java codes available on Net. I must also express my gratitude to SourceForge.net which a Great Treasure House of Open Source Software.
Though my preferences lie with herbal remedies, I have a cognition and perception that in case of emergencies, Modern Medicine (also called allopathic medicine by Homoeopathic Practioners), ought to be our last resort. I have already written, with some reasonable analysis, that using Homoeopathic medicines will be like 'wearing talismans', because homoeopathic medicines do not contain medical substances, because they are lost owing to excess dilution during succusion and trituration. I have already written a few blog poss about the risks involved in using mineral Ayurvedic remedies which contain heavy metals like mercury, lead and strong chemicals like sulphur. About Herbal medicines, we shall handle separately.
When we go to modern medical doctors and hospitals, we get charged heavily. We also get lot of prescriptions. We throw our money in dispensaries of the hospials / medical shops, and we ourselves swallow/get injected or make our relatives to swallo or get injected. I always felt that there is a need for our School and College curricula to contain some subjects/papers/chapters on pathology, patho-physiology, Pharmacology and phytochemistry.
Though numerous pdf medical dictionaries, and online medical dictioanries are available on net, there is need for a user customizable Medical Dictionary, which can be used OFFLINE, on ALL PLATFORMS and OS-es. PHP Scripts are browser based, and are suitable for online use. We can also use them offline, provided we have an apache server, installed. Then we must know how to store php script files and data files on localhost.
For creation/design of a user-customizable offline medical dictionary, I felt that Java 8 will suit most. Keeping this in mind, I have designed one Java 8 code, which can be compiled to generate a java class. Here it is:
