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...
I usually don't post just links to others' posts, but the thing I supposed to publish tonight is not ready yet - and I think this new support for JavaScript in NetBeans 6.1 is worth of attention: http://www.netbeans.tv/screencasts/Demo-of-New-JavaScript-Editor-in-NetBeans-IDE-6.1-340 I've basically done nothing so far in JavaScript, but in the next days I'm going to prepare a few mocks for some...
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 needed to compete is light and this could be your chance to gain some visibility. All the details are here; Italy is part of...
The saddest day at the conference is undoubtly friday, when they pack the pavillion stuff and you perceive that the thing is almost over. For some reasons, however, friday has been one of my most important days at the conference thanks to a long talk with Henry Story, which will have some consequences for blueMarine. Stay tuned. Spent saturday at Muir Woods and Point Reyes, spent sunday on the...
Now I can say, at last, that I'm a JavaOne speaker, really, not only a successful submitter. This year no headache, sore throat, cold, flu, pain in the ass prevented me from performing my talk. Not even the stinking MacBook Pro power supply that broke again a couple of days ago (men, I had to buy the third in two years). There could have been more attendees to my talk, but an agenda change a few...
Well, I really can't express all my feelings in these days - even because I'm still suffering from the jet lag. My first thought is that I'm happy to be in San Francisco again, after six years, and to attend Java One again. I didn't remember the Moscone Center was so huge and yesterday morning it took some time for me to find the room for the NetBeans track. As I said so many times, in this age...
Well, tomorrow morning I'm leaving for San Francisco. There are two basic reasons for my excitement: The last time I've been in San Francisco was in 2002 - a lot of time ago. I should have been there in 2005, since my paper about Jini in Formula One had been accepted; but I fell ill the day before leaving. The presentation was performed by two excellent co-workers of mine, but my morale had been...
This blueMarine screenshot has been just taken on Mac OS X. Do you note something different than usual? Clicking the image you can see the original capture. I'll pay a beer at JavaOne to the first guy that guesses what's going on (*). (*) This is the second beer I'll have to offer, the first being due to Kohsuke.
