Yesterday I tried the latest Mac OS X build of GlassFish. I only tried a simple "hello world" application, and that worked fine but I had to hunt and peek a bit around to find how to do a few things,
so read on for a somewhat detailed description of how to install and set-up GF and how to run that hello world WAR.
I've updated the community documentation at the Wiki to reflect these notes and...
Well, I tried to convince Abhijit not to do it, but he did go to the
dark side of management... A sad day, except that
Jerome Dochez is now the lead architect.
Jerome and I first worked together in JavaBeans 1.0.
Graham, me, and several others interviewed this guy with the french accent that knew COM inside and out. We made him an offer, he accepted and that was a good thing for Sun. He also...
There are a number of Consumer Web Services in the internet,
the eBays, Yahoos, Googles, etc.
A number of these use a REST architecture.
The JAX-WS 2.0 specification supports REST endpoints, and, with the good integration with
we expect a very good developer experience.
We would like to collect some public REST endpoints so we can test the
implementation (in the JAX-WS project
Sun has a new SDN program.
This is a pilot program for developers using the Sun developer tools
(Java Studio Creator,
or Java Studio Enterprise)
or core J2SE.
The program is free for a limited time.
You get free service and Sun gets to understand better the needs of its customers.
Check out the details of the pilot program at the web site.
And, btw, Java Studio Creator and Java...
A quick heads-up that Jim, Carla and Amy are going to host an
Ask the Experts session on Project GlassFish.
Hopefully there will be follow-up sessions on specialized topics.
Not too long ago I thought it would be neat to try an audioblog of Java News...
Not a very original ideal perhaps, and it turns out that Tor Norbye,
Carl Quinn and Dick Wall
have been doing a very good job with The Java Posse. They carry a pretty good set of Java News and Interviews and are already in volume 11. Cool!
A pitty that my car does not have an MP3 player... maybe I'll have to...
Thanks to everybody that applied for the engineering
in our group. We filled a number of the openings but we still have some in
so please contact me if you are interested in that location.
My last attempt to fly to Prague was derailed at the eleventh hour,
but everybody says it
is a great place and at least one of our engineers is relocating there.
We have one new opening...
The GlassFish Project is currently working
on adding interoperability with the Windows Communication Foundation (WCF, nee Indigo).
The first press report I see is from InternetNews.
This initiative will be developed at GlassFish and will be using the same
CDDL license that is used by the rest of GlassFish and other projects like OpenSolaris.
As with other previous projects,
it may take some...
