As explained in here, writing a proper daemon requires various function calls that are traditionally only available to native applications. So typically, Java applications rely on external wrappers like Apache commons daemon or Java service wrapper, or even worse, just ignore those conventions and do Runtime.exec. But this creates an unnecessary inconsistency between how you launch a program in...
Several people reported to me that the artifacts they pushed to the java.net Maven2 repository stopped appearing to the external servers. I'm happy to report that this problem is fixed now. This appears to be caused by a Subversion workspace corruption triggered by a disk full problem — disk problem was fixed earlier, but because of the workspace corruption didn't resolve itself, we ended...
Starting Hudson 1.264, Hudson has an option of sending usage statistics. This was released 12/16 last year, so it's been about a month. So I run some data analysis over the data that's collected so far. First, data is filtered to eliminate one off installations that don't appear to be a long running installation. That is, I only counted installations that kept sending the usage data for more...

I'm one of the few people who are still using Apache commons Jelly actively. I use it as an HTML macro engine in tools like htmlmacro, I use it to render views in Hudson, and I still occasionally use Maven1 to build my old projects, which uses Jelly big time. One of the pain points of using Jelly is that there's no schema for tags, so you can't take advantages of the modern schema-aware IDEs...
