I am very happy with new features inside JBoss ESB 4.2, mainly about Consoles and Editors! Yep, JBoss is well knowed by their black console screens logging everything you want into console/cms window. However, in the SOA World, some visual effort is required to be considered "An Enterprise Player", so far, some of this requirements are present in JBoss ESB 4.2.

In the spirit of transparency, I'm going to be posting regular updates on the work of the Java EE 6 expert group (JSR-316).
For the most part, this is going to be a condensed version of the updates that are sent to registered observers to the expert group. In order to join as an observer, you need to be a JCP member. The instructions to join the observer list are on the JSR-316 community update...

Early in the dot com boom era, a lot of companies implemented the popular portals. Those portals allowed us to "integrate" multiple applications together into a single screen. I write "integrate" between quotes, because there was nothing really integrated, it was just that the set of applications were displayed in the same screen. The reason for the low level of integration was not because of...

In six minutes, you are shown the history and rapid evolution of the publishing world at Sun, from troff to FrameMaker to AdeptEdit to blogs to wikis, thanks to the inventions of GUIs, formatting and structuring tools, and Web-based interfaces.
As someone who has used most of those tools over the years...

Kaboom! Today we have announced the official release of GlassFish v2, aka our 9.1 version. Tons of blogs will pops up about the subject, but none of them will tell you what's really cool with v2! If you expect reading stuff about Servlet, JSP, Toplink or EJB, then move away as I personally don't consider those technologies cool enough those days :-). GlassFish v2 hidden features (or not...

After over a year in community development we are preparing to release jMaki 1.0 on September 25.
jMaki has stabilized over the past few months especially with the data models which allow you to create some very sophisticated user interfaces. As proof we have created jmaki.com where we are hosting many of our samples and recent blog postings using jMaki.
How are you using jMaki and if not...

I spent most of Day 2 of the Sun Tech Days working on the pavillion floor at the JavaDB booth. Things were pretty quiet during the technical sessions and keynotes, but we did get a fair amount of traffic in between sessions and during breaks. People generally wanted to know what JavaDB is and what kinds of applications it is suited for. I recommend checking out the JavaDB page on the Sun...

The 2007/2008 Sun Tech Days season kicked off today in Boston, MA and even though the event is much smaller in scale than JavaOne, it still had the same atmosphere: People wandering around from booth to booth with giant backpacks and huge id badges trying to figure out where to go next! I suspect tomorrow will be busier than today since that is when most of the technical sessions and all of the...

A new Sun Developer Network article, Handling Chunked Requests in Sun Java System Web Server 7.0, addresses the topic of breaking message bodies into chunks of arbitrary lengths with transfer coding from the HTTP/1.1 protocol.

hg clone http://hg.glassfish.dyndns.org/ glassfish_v3

In the last few weeks I was asked to help to integrate a set of built-in-house web applications with a Single Sign On (SSO) solution. After working with people from different teams, I realized that it would be a good idea to write a brief description of how the SSO solutions work in general. Perhaps this might help you to get started if you have to do something like this at some point.
SSO is by...

I enjoyed reading Seven Habits of Effective Developers, ZDNet Asia's interview with Sun staff engineer Lee Chuk Munn, who likens writing applications to writing books. The habits he cited include: understand the problem, use appropriate tools, strive for simplicity, and so forth.
Hard to argue with any of them, I think, in particular the points on simplicity and clarity. Those are goals for me...
