Glassfish v3 is built by Maven 2, so most of the time the edit/build/debug cycle is as easy as: $ mvn -o compile$ mvn gf:run Now, when I am debugging a problem, I often want to see more detailed logs that are recorded at INFO/CONFIG/FINE/etc levels. Unfortunately, the java.util.logging package doesn't make this very easy — you'd have to write a property file, and use a system property to...
Someone posted an article on Hudson Wiki that explains how to drive Lava lamps based on Hudson build status. I've done a bit of extreme feedback device myself, but the great thing about this article is that it doesn't require any electronics experience. You just buy a few stuff (the total cost is $60), and that's it. Controllers attached to lava lamps communiate to the computer by radio, too,...
In the past few weeks, I've been mostly working on the launch of Metro, a web service distribution built around the JAX-WS RI and WSIT. I think this move is a bit like the one we did with JWSDP, for those of you who remember. Back then, we've been developing a bunch of composable but independent technologies (JAXP, JAXB, JAXM, SAAJ, JAX-RPC, JAXR, ...), and we realized that for most people they...
Java.net recently posted an article called "Top 50: Interview with Kohsuke Kawaguchi of the Hudson Project". I always enjoy doing this kind of things, because I can really say anything I want. If you enjoy reading it, you might like my previous one, too. Hudson apparently continues to gain more traction. In the May 2007 top project ranking at java.net, It's ranked at #7 in mail traffic and cvs...
Ivy is an increasingly popular dependency management tool. It lets your (Ant) build script downloads library jars from other places, much like Maven. The part that I like about Ivy is that it doesn't try to be everything, unlike Maven. Since I just wasted almost 3 hours trying to get the maven-assembly-plugin to create a convenient all-in-one JAX-WS commons bundle (and in the end blocked by...
Stateful web service support seems to be getting some traction, as Scott Balmos reported that it's interoperable with C#. See the discussion in TSS.com. Some of the comments say: It's almost magical how easy the code is, to use a stateful SOAP service in this manner. Looks as great as Microsoft breaking 8+3 limit in filenames. With the stateful web service support in the JAX-WS RI (although...
I just posted the reference of the complete JAXB binding customization elements. This is the latest addition to the user support resources for JAXB. This documentation is generated from XML Schema automatically by using xnsdoc, which kindly offers free licenses for eligible open source projects (if you know of any good free software for doing this, let me know!) Since the original schema doesn...
