I'm at The Spring
Experience 2006 in Hollywood, Florida (between Miami and Fort
Lauderdale) where I've been invited to speak.
Grizzly is more and more embedded in frameworks and products, and since the documentation is not as good as I would like, let's start a series of blogs that explain how to embed and extend the framework. The first blog of the series will explain how to embed an http web server in less than 5 lines.
The Sun JSF RI team (Ryan Lubke, etc) is constantly making enhancements to their project here on Java.net. One of the banes of JSF's architecture is StateSaving, so we ran some tests to see if there was room for improvement.
In this entry, I show how I added Dynamic Faces support to the Dojo
Inline Editor widget in jMaki.
I also explain the general Dynamic Faces and jMaki story.
Just tested/uploaded another release of Facelets with many small bug fixes for JSF 1.1 and JSF 1.2.
I show how to achieve neaz zero re-deployment time for JSF using JMX.
First ever, dynamite, not-to-be-missed series of four articles.
jMaki is quickly approaching 1.0 Beta and as one of the new features we have full support for PHP 5.0. This includes the all widgets, layouts, glue code, and the XmlHttpProxy.
The Grizzly framework is migrating from GlassFish to its own top level project. Interested to contribute? Since the project is starting, this is your opportunity!
The year 2006 edition of foss.in is happening this weekend (November 24, 25 and 26).
Wow today I've read a blog from TAKAI Natao about how to deploy JRuby on Rails application in GlassFish. A great Grizzly extension I wasn't expecting....
Based on some recent posts on different EL libraries and performance comparisons, I decided to run my own.
An Atom Publishing Protocol implementation running on Phobos, complete with reusable REST libraries.
In this entry, Ed explains why server side frameworks are important, even in a world of Ajax and GWT.
A preview of the Phobos plugins for NetBeans 5.5.
If you follow my postings, then you won't be surprised to learn that I think we are at the dawn of a new era in programming. As with all previous eras... nothing is really new, it's just a point in time where existing good ideas rapidly ascend to a pervasive level of acceptance.
Since a couple of weeks I've been working with the Jetty team to investigate how we can front Jetty with Grizzly. Well, I'm happy to announce the collaboration worked very well and you can now get a preview of Jetty powered by Grizzly.
Take a look at a collection of accolades from renowned magazines and journals.
One thing I hate when I install an application server is the process of determining which and how many TCP ports the application is reserving. On a shared machine, It's even worse because you possibly need to manually change all the reserved ports to start the application server. There is still pain because I always have to learn which port support which protocol and under which transport etc. Painfull, is it? The good news is with the help of Grizzly, GlassFish v2 can now reserve a single port that can be used to serve several protocols and transports (not all yet). Even better, it is easy to extend the Grizzly Port Unification mechanism and do whatever you want with the request. La vie est belle....
