Mark Reinhold announced today that the JDK 7 / JavaSE 7 project has slipped once again: mid-2011 without Jigsaws and Lambdas, late 2012 for JavaSE 8 with those. The delay (or some other bad news like dropping features) was already expected by anyone who tracks the project. But really, how big and bad is this delay? As a big enthusiast of both Jigsaw and Lambdas - and as a tech writer who just...

If you want to work for DropBox, they have an interesting programming test which solution must be submitted together with the CV. I’m not considering a position at DropBox, but their test was too fun to ignore: an interesting challenge in algorithms, and another opportunity to exercise JavaFX as any geometric problem surely deserves some GUI. (Don’t read this blog if you actually plan...

(I started cross-posting blogs to my own website.) I was working on Hudson yesterday which led me to develop this little tool called Bridge method injector. When you are writing a library, there are various restrictions about the kind of changes you can make, in order to maintain binary compatibility. One such restriction is an inability to restrict the return type. Say in v1 of your library...

I simply hate that "mvn eclipse:eclipse" does not generate project files for Maven projects that have POM packaging. Yes I know that I can simply create a Default Eclipse project on the folder but why do I have to do this action many time when the target is to avoid to repeat task? So I hacked into and "fixed" it. That was simple. What is not is to understand reason...

 In front of hundreds of guests from the economy sector, the political sector as well as the Information and Communications sector (ITK) the 'Initiative for Small and Medium Sized Businesses' awarded the Innovation Prize IT 2010 during the NORD/LB forum at the CeBit for the best IT innovations of the year. Micromata came third in the Open Source category with its Java API for KML - JAK. The...

JSR-276 is targeted at IDE vendors and the JSF component library vendors who depend on them for exposing their components to developers. The idea of JSR-276 is to let JSF component library vendors provide a far richer set of descriptive data about their components so that JSR-276 compliant tools can expose that data to the users. Examples of such data include: What kinds of components are...

A few months ago, I had one of those unpleasant format conversion jobs. I had about 1,000 multiple choice questions in RTF format and needed to import them into Moodle. RTF is, as file formats go, somewhere between the good and the evil. It looks like one should be able to write a parser for it, but that seems like a dreary task. The miracle of open source came through for me, though, in the...

(I started cross-posting blogs to my own website.) I did a quick interview with DZone about my new company, InfraDNA, which they published on their website. Thank you DZone for the opportunity!

(I started cross-posting blogs to my own website.) As I wrote in my farewell note, I was working on starting a new company around Hudson. It took longer than I initially anticipated, but it's finally open for business! The company will provide two things; one is support, so that I can answer your questions and problem reports in a timely fashion, and the other is consulting, so that I can help...

(I started cross-posting blogs to my own website.) My project of the day (or "POTD") is GitHub API for Java — a library for accessing GitHub programmatically. As the Hudson community is embracing plugins developed in Git more and more, I needed to interact with GitHub as a part of the community infrastructure automation. I did a quick Google search to locate existing...

My project of the day (or "POTD") is Custom Access Modifier — an annotation and an enforcer that lets you define application-defined custom access modifiers, So let me explain this a bit more. Say you have a library that people use, and say you are thinking about deprecating one of the methods. Yes, you can just put @Deprecated, but that doesn't actually prevent people from...

Manage, Administrate and Monitor GlassFish v3 using Application Server Management Extensions (AMX) & The Java Management Extensions (JMX) Management is one of the most crucial parts of an application server set of functionalities. Development of the application which we deploy into the server happens once with minor development iteration during the software lifecycle, but the management is...

I started working for Sun Microsystems since Janurary 2001, when I first came to the US. During these years I was able to work on many different projects, such as MSV, JAXB, JAX-WS, Metro, GlassFish v3, and Hudson, to name a few, with many great people. It was all quite an enjoyable journey. I won't list all those names one by one here, for it will be too long, but if you are one of them, I think...

Hudson Hackathon Day 1 is over, and I'm just back to the office. Total of 9 people came and we had a great time talking about infrastructure issues, possible enhancements, design dicussions, exchanging tips and plugins that they've developed, and otherwise building personal relationships. It was a beautiful day outside, and fortunately the meeting room had a lot of Sun lights to create a warm...
