Annotations and href="http://www.jcp.org/en/jsr/detail?id=220">EJB 3 JSRs both
provide a number of annotations that are useful to enterprise Java
developers. This blog entry examines the use of two from EJB3 that I
feel really should be in Common Annotations:
(Updated) JavaServer Faces 1.2 and JavaServer Pages 2.1 Proposed Final Draft Specifications available
I'm pleased to announce the availability of the Proposed Final Draft
revisions of the next release of the JavaServerTM Faces and
To follow up to
previous blog about the desire for irc.java.net, I'd like to talk
about using Project JXTA in the
interim (and perhaps indefinately, if people like it) to fill the gap.
Is it just me or do you also feel that java.net will never be a leading
open source community without having its own irc server? Mozilla has
one, Netbeans uses freenode, the list goes on and on. It's just a great
way to do realtime collaboration. For example, in my case if we had a
channel for JavaServer Faces, users could get in touch with developers
My goodness it's late. JavaOne will do that to you. I can't let a
conference day pass without writing at least something of the day.
You can see my trend line for blog entries is going down. No
excuses. Here is a summary post of the rest of day two at JavaOne 2005.
This was the most interesting day for me, with many Faces talks and
The morning was packed. After the Amazon talk, I went straight to
the Wicket talk, where I ran into Howard. Here are the quick notes from
Very similar to eBay's talk yesterday. You can join an amazon
associate program and get money based on sales you send to Amazon. It
would be interesting to compare the richness of the APIs at eBay and
80% of their WS calls are REST, 20% SOAP.
John Gage mentions that all the badges are RFID tagged. Talked about
some of the things that can be done with this data. Who went to the
most sessions? What session had the most attendees?
Show how to use Ebay to make money for yourself.
Ebay opportunity: more efficient way to buy/sell. Obvious value
proposition you already know about.
Emphasis on making money makes it feel a bit like an amway pitch, but in the end they did show some code and how to use their APIs.
Ebay developers are a massive driver of innovation.
The most I'd heard of groovy is what
href="http://www.almaer.com/blog/">Dion said at the 2005 Server Side
Java Symposium. There he said it was a bit backwards to have a JSR for
a scripting language before it was more fully fleshed out. Something
about a cart and a horse.
