Java Champion Alan Williamson posted "A Simple Java class for Amazon SimpleSQS": "With such a beautiful service such as the Amazon Simple Queue Service, it shouldn't be wrapped up with a lot of complicated layers of classes for utilizing.

The results of the java.net poll suggest that the Java Store and Java Warehouse are in an "early adopter" phase, where there is interest and participation by a smallish group of innovators, with a larger group of people watching and waiting. The poll actually ran twice: one week on the previous java.net infrastructure and one week on the new infrastructure. The results were pretty similar in...

There is some understandable confusion over the changes that have taken place on the java.net site starting this past weekend. The changes consist primarily of switching significant portions of the underlying infrastructure from a platform that was custom built by O'Reilly quite a few years ago, to a much more modern, modular, widely used platform.

Today is Day Two for the new java.net infrastructure. An enormous amount of small to medium sized tweaks, fixes, and nudges were accomplished yesterday by the Cognisync development team, which constructred the new platform (have you noticed that their icon now sits next to the CollabNet icon at the bottom of this page?). I can't say that I myself have contributed any fixes, but I've at least...
