Find longest sequence of zeros in binary representation of an integer

 A binary gap within a positive integer N is any maximal sequence of consecutive zeros that is surrounded by ones at both ends in the binary representation of N.

For example, number 9 has binary representation 1001 and contains a binary gap of length 2. The number 529 has binary representation 1000010001 and contains two binary gaps: one of length 4 and one of length 3. The number 20 has binary representation 10100 and contains one binary gap of length 1. The number 15 has binary representation 1111 and has no binary gaps.

Write a function:

int solution(int N);

that, given a positive integer N, returns the length of its longest binary gap. The function should return 0 if N doesn't contain a binary gap.

For example, given N = 1041 the function should return 5, because N has binary representation 10000010001 and so its longest binary gap is of length 5.


 public class Test {  
      private static long maxConsecutiveZeroes(int x) {  
           boolean flagOne = false;  
           long count = 0, max = 0;  
           //Loop until x becomes 0.  
           while (x != 0) {  
                if ((x & 1) == 1) {  
                     flagOne = true;  
                     if (count > max) {  
                          max = count;  
                     count = 0;  
                } else if (flagOne) {  
                     count += 1;  
                } else {  
                     count += 1;  
                x = x >> 1;//Move ht binary digits to right side bit by bit.  
           return max;  
      public static void main(String strings[]) {

    16. Click Finish.
    17. Repeat steps 9-16 with step 13 as Select "Yes, export the private key" and step 14 as Select Personal Information Exchange -PKCS #12(.pfx)
    18. For exporting the the certificate as pfx, you will be prompted to enter and re-enter password. Remember the password which will be used later (eg:changeit)

    Creating the keystore file

    Very important do not miss this step --> Navigate to the bin folder of your respective JRE/JDK (i.e. C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_37\bin for Windows 7).  Failure to follow this step will yield the following error: keytool' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file' when attempting to run the below command requiring the keytool.exe file to be present.

    Next Go to Start->All Programs->Accessories
    Right click on Command Prompt and select Run as administrator

    Run the following commands.

    keytool -import -keystore jboss.jks -file D:localSSLcertificate.cer
    Enter keystore  password: changeit
    Re-enter  new password: changeit
    Trust this certificate? [no]:  y
    Certificate was added to keystore

    keytool -importkeystore -keystore jboss.jks -srckeystore D:localSSLcertificate.pfx -srcstoretype PKCS12
    Enter destination keystore password: changeit
    Enter source keystore password: changeit

    You will need to put the jboss.jks file in a place where all your current and future JBoss 7 installations can use it, as follows:

    1. In your Projects directory, create the directory Jboss
    2. Create the directory certs in the jboss directory you created above
    3. copy the file jboss.jks  to the jboss/certs directory you created above.

       1. Code Checkout Form Gitlab.

    1. Get open any browser and enter above url.
    2. Get login in gitlab using your LDAP Username and Password or Standard Login.

    1. After login you can see below window.

    2. Before get code in local need to fork your repository, where you want to get code (copy of code for your changes for with out affecting original code ) form master branch. you need to fork project it will create copy of project on your repository.
    3. Click on Fork as shown below.

    4. After fork, you will be enter int your fork project as shown below.

    3. How to create a merge request.

    1. Once changes has been committed into your fork branch. you need to create a merge request to a person who is having higher authority to merge the changes with master branch code. 
    2. Merge request can be create form your gitlab, go to your gitlab URL and get log in using your LDAP id and password.as follows.

    3. Click on fork button, It will go to your fork project window.

    4. Click on Marge Requests, you will get below window.
    5. After that click on New Merge Request. and in the Source Branch select source project and source branch(form merge) ,same for Target Branch select target project(To merge).
