What is the Apache Harmony project's "Open Letter to Sun Microsystems" really about? The normal slimy marketing tactics we see every year right before JavaOne.
Curious how much Java is a test-driven technology ?
There is a new poll on the Java Power Tools book website - what tools do you use to test your web interfaces?
We will do a session on testing JavaME applications, do overview of available tools and demo on how to use ME Framework for this purpose. If you speak Russian, check the agenda.
Due to user demand, I started documenting how to install hudson.war on various containers. IMHO, that just shows the sorry state of the server-side Java portability.
I just posted Hudson 1.91, which supports source code repository browsers like FishEye and ViewVC.
Compare JavaTest harness and JUnit, or Why new test formats appear ?
There is a new poll on the Java Power Tools web site - what Java IDE do you use.
Two great tastes? Or one sticky mess?
It's been a while since the last time I blogged about Japex. Over the last year or so there have been many incremental improvements (resulting in 30 different releases) and with the recent addition of combined bar charts (more on this later), I thought it was time to make this the official 1.1 release.
Making Hudson easy to install has always been a very important goal for me. I think it has been the easiest CI engine to install, but it just got even easier to install, thanks to Java Web Start.
At the Java Posse Roundup last week we had some wonderful evening sessions called Lighting Talks. During these sessions each participant had 5 minutes to give their entire presentation. This necessitates, of course, brevity and clarity above all.

How do you load test your sites?
I just released Hudson 1.86 and it supports a new JIRA plugin for Hudson. This allows two systems to work nicely with each other.
The Java Power Tools website includes, among other things, a new poll on Software Configuration Management (SCM) tools.
Due to popular demand, I've added some more CI tools to this poll.
For some reason, the blogsphere suddenly noticed my year-old NLink project, so I'm getting a lot of traffic lately. Maybe I've never sent out the announcement, when I originally released it, so here it goes...
Earlier this week I posted a few polls on the Java Power Tools book website, about the tools people preferred in a number of areas: build tools, continuous integration, and issue tracking. So far, the pools are getting some interesting initial results.
Random musings on "Hello I'm Java, Hi I'm Mac".
I've set up a "Cool Tools" page on the Java Power Tools Book website where you can let the world know about your favorite OS/Java tools. You can vote by leaving a comment on the site or by sending me a mail. I'll update the table on a regular basis, and the more popular, useful or interesting tools (or any that just take my fancy!) may well get a place in the book!
