Alex De Marco is a happy
user of FREE 12-months GlassFish Hosting @ OStatic. Here is
what he has to say:
Many thanks to OStatic
and LayeredTech for offering free hosting, and to Sun for providing a
powerful yet free application development stack: Glassfish, Java,
MySQL, and OpenSolaris. VERY MUCH appreciated!
You can avail this exclusive and limited-time offer here!
#42 explained how to create a simple Java Server Faces
application using NetBeans 6.1 and deploy on GlassFish. In the process
it explained some basic
JSF concepts as well. If you remember, it built an application that
allows you to create a database of cities/country of your choice. In
that application, any city/country combination can be entered twice and
no errors are reported.
September is the month
of Java in Brazil. There are developer events and Java
conferences through out the country. And the month ends by kick

from Disney's Brother
Bear series. It's also a river,
and a city

nothing to do (as much as I know) with either Rails or GlassFish.

Last day of Rails Conf Europe 2008 (Day
1 & Day
2), and it's finally over!
David Black's opening session talked about Ruby
and Rails Symposium: Versions, Implementations, and the Future.
Here is a brief summary of MRI Ruby versions:
Bread and butter for many of us
1.8 with lots of backported 1.9 features
Help with migration to 1.9
Not gaining traction, is it ?
Conf Europe 2008 Day 1 was mostly about tutorials.
On Day 2, David Black gave the opening session. After some logistics he
introduced the favorite
son of Chicago - David Heinemeier Hansson. The theme of
DHH's session was "Legacy Software". Now that Rails is 5 years old, the
discussions of legacy is indeed meaningful. He showed some code from BaseCamp
and showed how refactoring can deal...
The buzz around Google Chrome attacked me...just to make sure Chrome supports Comet, I did try using the monster implementation to see if sockets in Chrome works with Grizzly Comet (and Java). Guess what?
Starting today, we are shipping the upcoming/work-in-progress Grizzly 2.0 artifacts/jars. Grizzly 2.0 is a complete new re-design of Grizzly based on our experience since the monster poped up in 2005. The bear's revolution starts now!

2, 2008 was the Tutorials Day @ Rails Conf Europe.
I attended Renegade's
Guide to Hacking Rails Internals (partly) and Deploying
and Monitoring Ruby on Rails. The first session did exactly
what it says - explained the complete internals, digging deep into the
code and how to hack them to
meet your needs. I thoroughly enjoyed the second tutorial as it covered
the deployment in detail and...
If there is one thing that I terribly miss after moving to this
country, that would be the variety of Mangoes
in India. I've been asked at the United States Customs if I'm importing
any mangoes. The fruit's flavor, fragrance and color is just great so I
don't blame them at all. There is even International
Mango Festival conducted every year since 1987 in Delhi. The
festival features more than...
I arrived Berlin yesterday on a non-adventurous United flight from San
Francisco, just the way I like it! The flight from Frankfurt was
delayed 30 minutes but that's normal these days :)
The venue of RailsConf
Europe 2008 is same
as last year so street names/geography are somewhat familiar.
But the conference
hotel was sold out so am instead staying across the street.
