Map of Android Market supported countries, UPDATED

Good news, the Android Market has expanded list of countries where you can buy paid apps.

Click to see large image
Green countries - users can buy and developers can publish paid apps.
Blue countries - users can buy but developers cannot publish.
Yellow countries - same as blue but for some reason Google calls them "Rest of the world" (maybe some restrictions will apply).

Sadly, no new countries added to support paid apps developers.

ForkingAspect added to Common Spring Aspects

A small but useful addition to the common-spring-aspects project: forked execution of a bean method.

Using the ForkAspect, it is possible to define bean methods to be executed in a separate thread. This is useful to avoid waiting on slow methods whose results we do not actually need to proceed (common examples - email sending, statistics event registration, etc).

NoSuchAlgorithmException: SunTlsRsaPremasterSecret after Java upgrade on Mac OS X

I've this weird problem after upgrading to new Java version on Mac. My (maven) project ran OK from command line but got the "SunTlsRsaPremasterSecret" error in Eclipse.
Caused by: SunTlsRsaPremasterSecret KeyGenerator not available
at javax.crypto.KeyGenerator.<init>(DashoA13*..)
at javax.crypto.KeyGenerator.getInstance(DashoA13*..)
The solution was to remove Installed JREs in Eclipse configuration and add them again (using the "Search..." button).

Map of Android Market supported countries

As you might know, Android Market only allows people in certain countries to buy paid apps. Also, developers can only publish those applications if located in supported countries. The list of those countries is published here.

As I'm a visual type of person, I like to see maps. Surprisingly, there is no map of of Android Market supported countries available anywhere yet. So I've created one myself:

Developers based in "green" countries can publish paid apps. Users based in "green" or "blue" countries can buy them.

As you see, all the "Western world" is covered. What is notably not covered is Eastern Europe and Asia. And that's unfortunate, as there is a lot of good developers (and potential buyers) in those regions.
