I posted the first version of JNITL, a template library for developing C++ JNI application.
Yes, I'm a NetBeans guy, but since Creator 2's been released, I can't stop playing with it. Since I've also been playing with Derby a bit lately, and since Derby isn't one of the preconfigured database server types that ships with Creator, I thought a short blog entry might be in order.
Sun Java Studio Creator 2 has been released
Developing Web Services with Creator 2 as the testing tool can be difficult since it does not pick up changes to the service. This blog will tell you how to remove all references to the old service so you can insure that you are working with the newest version.

Sun has a pilot program to provide support for their tools. In exchange for helping Sun understand the needs of its potential customes, the service is free for a limited time...
A few months ago I posted some initial impressions on Find Bugs. Since then my backburner task has been to study how to use the tool with the tools developed by the Java Quality Team.
The Java Quality team has several tools (harnesses, test frameworks, etc) to aid the work we do. I've discussed bits about them before, so I won't go into that again. Suffice to say the managers were impressed...
Sun is giving away free copies of Sun Java Studio Enterprise and Sun Java Studio Creator IDEs to members of Sun Developer Network (SDN). You can join SDN for free.
Earlier in this blog I introduced Japex, a simple yet powerful tool to write micro-benchmarks in Java.
