If you are suffering slow java.net issue tracker performance, I think I have just the tool for you.
One of the innovations in the JavaFX toolchain is our new javafxdoc tool. Rather than producing a set of html files like regular 'javadoc' does, we produce a single large XML file representing the entire codebase's API. This lets us easily add extra processing steps, such as producing semantic wellformed XHTML as you see today. It also lets us do a few other things. I think I've mentioned before...
I wrote a Maven plugin for building an IPS package, so that Java projects can create IPS packages more easily.
Update center in Hudson had a very positive impact on plugin downloads
Producing debian packages is now a part of the Hudson release process.
I just posted Hudson 1.222. This version contains the update center for simplifying plugin installations
How do you attach a native debugger to debug JVM at the lower level?
The use of Agile Methodologies practices can get some help from java tools. In this post I'm talking about a presentation in an event from RSJUG, the Rio Grande do Sul Java Users Group about Tools for Java projects using Agile Methodologies.
Thanks to Annies Abduljaffar, the java.net Maven2 repository now serves Nexus index. What this means for users is that tools like m2eclipse and NetBeans maven plugin can discover archetypes from the repository, auto-complete groupIds/artifactIds in POM, adds missing dependency tags automatically when you complete a class name, etc.
In this blog, I discuss how to teach maven2 to compile the source-code present in directories in addition to src/main/java.
I wrote a small Java library that converts a ssh key file in the PuTTY format into the OpenSSH format.
There are a lot of static analysis tools out there, but Findbugs is unique. Where Checkstyle will raise 500 issues, and PMD 100, FindBugs will only raise 10 - but you damn well better look at them carefully!
Performance monitoring and profiling applications is one of my favorite pet topics. So I was keen to here today's talk on "Improving Application Performance with Monitoring and Profiling Tools".
The new version of Subversion, Subversion 1.5, is due out any day now, and it comes with some features that rock!
I gave a talk today at CommunityOne on "Open Source Tools for Optimizing Your Development Process". You can now get the slides for this presentation online.
Hudson won Duke's Choice Award this year in JavaOne
Some of the recent developments in Hudson: SCM plugins, Google Desktop, NetBeans, Japanese community, and JavaOne session.
The source code repository of Hudson has been migrated from CVS to Subversion yesterday.
One of the things I learned in The Server Side Java Symposium 2008 was a command-line option to print out the assembly code that JIT is producing. Since I've always been interested in seeing the final assembly code that gets produced from your Java code, I decided to give it a test drive.
