This is a *very* preliminary post that will be followed by a more detailed document during August. But since I'm getting some feedback in private channels, I'd like to let people know what's going on. jrawio so far has been primarily focused in decoding the raw bits from files and getting the metadata; the "reajent" component, that has got the responsibility of "developing" the raw file into a...
Project Lombok has been talked about at the JavaPosse mailing list. In short, it's a tool that hooks into the compiler for generating boilerplate code, driven by annotations, for things such as JavaBean bound properties. For more information, have a look at the project website. Now, I'm a big fan of this kind of tools. I think that Java-the-language is mature and has reached the limit in the...
I've previously told you that I'm going to blog about why I've switched to Mercurial and how I'm using it. A quick tip for today is to learn how the capability of working in async mode (that is, you first commit locally and later push to the primary repo) can be also a safer way to work. Consider this: while still working on the default branch of jrawio and fixing bugs, I've created a 2.0 branch...
During this month I've written just a few new code, focusing instead on the conversion of my projects from Subversion to Mercurial (and also converting almost everything from Ant to Maven, and working on a much improved build workflow with Hudson, but these are matters for another post). So I'll blog a bit about Mercurial in the following month - the target of these posts will be people with no...
I seldom post just to link to others' posts without further comments, but this is a very important step forward for the NetBeans Community. Have a look at Toni's post for learning about NetDEV.
After more than one year of experience with Mercurial (because NetBeans repository moved to hg time ago), I feel good with it and I've decided to switch most of my projects from Subversion to it. I'll talk in another post about the advantages of Mercurial over Subversion; today I'd like to share a solution to a problem that I've found. Of course, all my projects are CIed under Hudson, so I need...
When I created the BetterBeansBinding project, I spent a considerable amount of time for setting up a complete software factory with Continuous Integration (a thing that I've reasonabily completed only a few days ago, and now only misses a Maven repository). I believe a complete software factory that facilitates unit testing (possibly TDD) and collection of metrics is of fundamental importance....
All the relevant information in my DZone post.
Yesterday I've been interviewed by Sun Microsystems Radio (yes, Sun has got a radio) about my take on JavaFX. Since Chhandomay Mandal asked me about my current and future projects with JavaFX, I think it's a good opportunity to recap the state of my FLOSS projects and their plans. So maybe I can understand what I'm doing. blueMarine: my primary project, that spun off most of the other ones...
