I've never used Ruby or Ruby-on-Rails but now that JavaOne 2007 is over, I decided to spend some time understanding the hype behind it. I'll publish this as a multi-series entry sharing my experience. Ruby-on-Rails main download page requires you to download Ruby, RubyGems and then install Rails. And even then it's missing Apache and MySQL. For a first timer, this is way too many packages to...

As a follow up to a blog I wrote back in December about simplifying the JAXP API, I have created a community wiki page to continue this discussion.

I've created the community wiki page for this very purpose. Hopefully the use of a wiki will encourage more...
