My adventures at FISL 8.0 continue....On Friday, IBM didn't showed up for their Web 2.0 talk and guess who was asked to replace them? With 10 minutes notification, I didn't have a single minute to stress or think. Charlie and I jumped to a crowded room and talked about GlassFish, SWDP and Grizzly Comet. Since Comet is fairly new, we spend a fair amount of time explaning what it is and how to use...

This week is the week! I'm in Brazil for the 8th International Free Software Forum. This conference on open source projects is really interesting and a lot of folks are attempting the conference (~ 5000). My first day was a 'discussions day' and didn't have a single minute to attempt talks! I was around the Sun boot talking about GlassFish, Grizzly and GlassFish's Comet implementation. It is...

Yesterday we did a very open review of the Grizzly framework version 1.5. The meeting was open to everybody. We discussed the current framework classes, the migration from 1.0, some performance improvements, etc. A lot of peoples have called, and the interesting part was that the majority of listeners weren't from Sun. To name a few, we got listeners from Amazon, Sun, Noelios, and student from...

At AjaxWorld 2007 last week both Greg and I demonstrated a JMaki demo which is using Grizzly Comet in GlassFish. The code is available under the JMaki workspace but you can also download the war file from here. Just install GlassFish, enable Comet and deploy the application. The application is simple. When you type a word, the word will be displayed using Flickr photos and shared amongs all Comet...

Sure there was fluff, fluff is everywhere and TSS Java Symposium was no different. But in the end there were more code examples than SOA hand-waving and even when the so-called SOA gurus went about trying to sell you stuff, they usually backed it up (or at least tried to) with some kind of a demo which would translate through to the lowest common developer. Advertised as the most pragmatic of...

Tim Bray wrote about running servlet-like JRuby scripts inside a web application and I left a comment saying "Phobos can do that". This got me thinking on how to make it easy to get people started in this model.
As always, the best way is to use a running application as a starting point. Once the basic application layout and configuration are in place, all you need is a well-defined place for...

We just released the Sun Web Developer Pack and Phobos is one of its components, together with its client-side companion, jMaki, and a lot of other interesting stuff. Arun Gupta has all the details. I recommend checking out the RESTful web services API EA, as a preview of what you can expect from the newly approved JSR-311.
We spent the last few weeks hunting down bugs in Phobos ahead of the pack...
