One of the (many) neat features of NetBeans, coming from older versions but improved in 6M10, is the integrated profiler. Since NetBeans comes also with an out-of-the-box integration with Tomcat (and other application servers), theoretically profiling your web applications should be just a matter of pushing two buttons. But this didn't worked for me as I wasn't able to have Tomcat started in "...
Again thanks to Marcello Teodori, now I'm able to automatically create .deb packages on my development MacBook Pro. Marcello explained me how to install the required application, dpkg - and the procedure works for a lot of typical Linux applications. install MacPorts; add to your PATH the directory /opt/local/bin; execute the following command to update the MacPorts installation:sudo port...
Some latest Apple's Mac OS X updates have caused severe troubles to users because of introduced instability. One of them is related to the capability of running some Java applications. Let me just sum up what happened to me in the latest days. I was in Stockholm for a business trip and had the insane idea of violating one of my best practices: "You won't update your operating system if you don't...
At the latest IDE Showdown conducted at JUG Cologne one of the demos showed by Roumen Strobl was about a desktop application which shows geospatial data - it's my blueMarine. Well, everybody that blogged about it referred as "an application showing Google Maps". It isn't! Actually it's using NASA World Wind for Java, and the imagery was from NASA too. This isn't to be picky - just to give the...
In the past months, there have been several blog posts about the status of Java 6 on Mac OS X, mainly dealing with the complete lack of information about Apple's plans. The worse scenarios have been fortunately dissipated when Apple published the titles of seminars of the latest WWDC: quoting from damnhandy's blog (more or less one month ago): “New features and performance enhancements make...
For interested people that couldn't attend Jazoon, I'm posting the slides that backed the blueMarine demo (I'll post the BoF slides later, as Moritz, Emmanuele and I will try to launch the idea behind it in a few days).Also you can find some screenshots illustrating the integration with NASA World Wind (which seems to be the most appreciated feature) - the path is from my trip in Switzerland....
Now that the Jazoon conference is over since a few days, I think I can post a balanced opinion about it (BTW, you can also read what Filippo, Roumen, Emmanuele and Moritz think). 800: the number of participants. I don't know whether it's good or too low, but Jazoon organizers seem to be fine with it. I think that probably a conference of this class should have more, sometimes you had the feeling...
Thanks to my friend Marcello Teodori, I've discovered ScribeFire. It's a Firefox plugin that implements a visual editor for HTML and can post blogs to several standards, including Movable Type which is the engine of Java.Net. If you are reading this post, this means that I've been able to download, install and successfully use it... If you don't like the idea of a Firefox plugin, there's a nice...
