Blog Archive for joshy during September 2007

I've got a free moment here at the MidWest Tech Days (and if you are in the MidWest you should be here too!) so I thought I would tally the votes generated by my previous blog: You vote for your favorite article and I'll write it! Before I get to the results themselves I must say that I was quite surprised by the response. 34 comments with some very good suggestions. I'm glad to see that there...
I'm thinking of working on another article or two over the next few weeks, but I don't know what to write about. Oh sure, I have lots of ideas, but I don't know what's most interesting to you. Ultimately my writing competes with about 4.8 billion other things for your valuable attention, so I only want to write the things that you want to read.

I'm going to abuse my celebrity and world renowned fame today (world renowned means the 5 mile radius around my house, right?). I have a technical question to ask my wonderful audience of readers (who are all beautiful, smart, and above average).

But even more don't come to JavaOne; which might be a good thing since there are over four million of us Java developers out there. That would be a big cafeteria! Think of the line for lunch! Fortunately there is an alternative. In an effort to meet those of you who don't get out to the west coast...
I recently gave a presentation at the Portland Java Users Group about Java FX. After talking to some of the fine members of PJUG I realize that there is a lot of confusion about JavaFX and JavaFX script. JavaFX Script is just one part of the larger JavaFX umbrella. In fact, you don't even have to use JavaFX Script to gain many of the benefits of JavaFX! This weblog posting is my attempt to clear...
My friends back at the Swing ranch have been working very hard on the new Nimbus look and feel for Swing. When I first saw it my only complaint was that I couldn't get my grubby little hands on it right away. Well, it sounds like we shouldn't have to wait too much longer. Jasper's weblog has all of the details. Oh, and it's entirely vector based and a mere 56k jar! Sweet indeed. Great work...
