Peter van den Bogaard's January article, DTrace by Example: Solving a Real-World Problem, first cites a pain of an example scenario with logins on secure shells (SSH). It then shows you, step by step, how to track, diagnose, and resolve the problem with DTrace, the dynamic tracing framework in the Solaris OS. That's an eye-opening illustration of the DTrace capability. Good job!

Brian McCallister already blogged about a very good example, Andreas Egloff implemented its SOA HTTP BC on top of it, and Jonas Jacobi and John Fallows were the first to implement the Bayeux protocol on top of ARP. They recently wrote an article about it called Enterprise Comet: Awaken the Grizzly!. If you are...

Finally I've moved the Grizzly Framework 1.0.x out of GlassFish. I've got so many private emails on the topic I couldn't resist to start now instead of waiting for GlassFish v2 to go out! Starting now, all Grizzly development will happens outside GlassFish. The first module I've moved is the Framework classes. Next it will be the Grizzly HTTP WebServer. If you are interested to see what it looks...

Testing multiple browsers on different platforms in the past was time consuming and took a bit of work. Even with virtualization in use you had no way to do side by side comparisons of what different browsers would render. That was until Parallels introduced an upcoming feature called Coherence.

The server deamon uses the configuration file slapd.conf which can be found in /etc/openldap...

Because JavaServer Faces technology is delivered by Sun as a part of the Java EE SDK and also Project Glassfish, the Sun JSF team strongly feels that community is important. To that end, I've been plugging the use of the ##jsf irc channel on as a community resource. My team and I try to maintain a daily presence in the channel. Since we started hanging out there, we've seen...
