JPA is a very good tool for simplifying the task of performing queries
and updates to a relational database while keeping the Java code as
much object oriented as possibile; but one of the tasks that are not
covered is the standard
maintenance of the database, such adding or dropping
columns from an existing table, or renaming a table or a column because
something has been changed in the...
Sun has launched the "Student Reviews Contest": it is reserved to
students that are regularly enrolled in an educational institute and
would like to write a review about OpenSolaris or NetBeans 6.1. The
prizes are small ($250 grand prize and five $100 prizes), but the work

Java One again. I didn't remember the Moscone Center was so huge and

co-workers of mine, but my morale had been...
screenshot has been just taken on Mac OS X. Do you note something
different than usual? Clicking the image you can see the original
