Felipe Leme

Felipe Leme has worked professionally with Java since 1996, and in the last years had became an active enthusiastic of the technology: he is a frequent speaker in the main Brazilian Java conferences, presented at JavaOne for 3 years in a row, is a developer of a few Java-based open-source projects (like DbUnit and Jakarta Cactus), and is an individual member of the Java Community Process, where he took part of the JSP 2.1 and Java EE 5.0 expert groups.

He is a father of two, and in his spare time likes to assemble jigsaw puzzles and collect Marvel comic books with his older son, Thomas. He used to scuba dive as well, but have not dove yet in this new millennium.

Currently, he works as an independent consultant and Java instructor in Brazil, but is planning to move back to the US, where he worked from 1999 to 2002.

With all this fuzz about JavaFX (which I've never cared for so far, and always thought it was something related to the FX TV channel), I decided to check the website.

Adding EL support on your projects

Posted by felipeal on October 26, 2008 at 11:07 PM PDT

A few years ago, JSTL introduced the concept of EL (Expression Language) to the Java standards. Since then, the technology have been slowing climbing the JCP ladder, first becoming part of JSP 2.0, then having its own API (javax.el).

Configuring Eclipse TPTP (a.k.a PQP) profiler on Linux

Posted by felipeal on June 26, 2008 at 7:23 PM PDT

After struggling for weeks and almost giving up, I finally managed to have the Eclipse TPTP profiler working on my Ubuntu 64bits box!

As this was a painful and unbelievably hard experience (because of Eclipse TPTP, not Ubuntu/Linux, BTW), I'm going to share a few tips here.

Spring, ICEFaces, and the dreaded thread-bound request issue

Posted by felipeal on March 6, 2008 at 12:21 AM PST

In this blog, I provide a quick solution for an issue that arises when you use ICEFaces server-push technology combined with Spring JSF integration.

JSP is not dead!

Posted by felipeal on July 9, 2007 at 8:35 AM PDT

Once in a while people blog about JSP being a dead technology. Well, that's not true, it is so alive that it is even being sold in the streets of San Francisco, as shown below:


My suggestion for Servlet 3.0

Posted by felipeal on June 25, 2007 at 9:52 AM PDT

I have taught Java and web-tier (Servlets/JSP/taglibs) development to about 10 classes over the last 3 years. And everytime I teach servlet attributes, I face the same situation: first I explain what request attributes are, why they are useful, and which methods you use to manipulate them.

The stress is over, time to enjoy the conference...

Posted by felipeal on May 10, 2007 at 12:26 AM PDT

We presented our technical session earlier today, so now we can finally enjoy the conference - too bad I have to work tomorrow :-(

Anyway, I'd like to talk a little bit about our presentation...

Firefox, profiles, and Linux

Posted by felipeal on February 27, 2007 at 8:18 PM PST

Have you ever spent hours trying to run 2 instances of Firefox on Linux, using command-line arguments (like -ProfileManager) that *used* to work, but now simply open a window in the same Firefox process? If you did, this blog is for you...

Final? Not yet...

Now that the pandora box is open is open, it is my turn to suggest a (possible worthless, I know) change to the Java language: the semifinal modifier!

Hello, McFly?

Posted by felipeal on February 12, 2007 at 3:26 PM PST

I have this blog for a long time - in fact, I think I was one of the first 100 or so weblogers, as I joined it shortly after JavaOne 2003. Still, I haven't blogged that much (just 22 entries in 41 months), specially last year (only 4 semi-crappy posts).
