Google maps was a useful hit from the moment it went on line. Since then thousands of web pages have added map capability to their sites, courtesy of Google. Let me illustrate how you can add Google maps to your Java application.
Expanding on the fun from my previous blog entry:
I hereby publicly claim that there exists no Java distributed computing framework that is equally flexible, and as fast, as cajo
What is the fundamental premise of messaging, and how is it different from RPC?
I am very pleased to announce a most significant breakthrough from the the cajo project, in the ease with which distributed computing can be accomplished in Java; and in only 20 kilobytes. It works with all JREs, 1.3 and later. (And before you Rocket Scientists out there ask; yes, it's also 64-bit clean ;)
Allow me to start with a small disclaimer: For those who do not already know; I lead the cajo project, where we promote the idea that the internet can be a collection of World Wide Virtual Machines; where remote objects are used just as local objects.
I felt as if a gauntlet had been thrown down before me. How could I profess that Java truly makes the network the computer, if it can not match the functionality of .NET remoting? While I am not yet convinced .NET is going about remoting in the best way, it is definitely very intuitive. Surely Java must be able to do it like that too... right?
I guess that means I should start:
The cajo project is a very compact framework to enable completely transparent use, and transport of, ordinary unmodified Java objects; between Java Virtual Machines. It allows distributed computers to effectively coalesce; into a seamless, Virtual Virtual Machine. Its ease of use is undoubtedly its most intriguing feature.
Some of you may know me as the host of the cajo project. In fact, the topic of my blog entry today is that thanks to java.net; there are a lot more of you than I thought!
I was just informed about the logger project; it allows java.net project owners to view access statistics for their projects.
