Java Enterprise

We are getting more and more requests (most probably to validate what I'm discussing here, and here, and here, and here ...LOL) about having Grizzly as a separate bundle developers can use to build scalable NIO based server. Hence we've decided to create a bundle that can live outside GlassFish (so you don't need to checkout and build GlassFish). The bundle is available here. For Maven user, just...

Here is interesting insight from Sara Gates, VP of identity management at Sun: Her article, Stolen Laptops Are Only the Beginning, reminds us that it's important to prevent data theft through mobile tools—cell phones, BlackBerry devices, and such—that can access enterprise networks. According to Sara, "Companies may never be able to stop the 'physical' theft of devices, but they can...

An earlier blog I posted summarizes the enhancements in NetBeans Enterprise Pack 5.5 Beta. Take a look also at a new Sun Developer Network article, About NetBeans Enterprise Pack 5.5 Beta, which shines a light on how robust tools, such as those that the pack offers, simplify and ease the lives of developers who build service-oriented applications.Yes, why wait? Download and try out NetBeans...

Last week we added logging functionality to Phobos. It's an all-JavaScript library clearly inspired by Apache Commons Logging. Although logging is not very glamorous, experienced developers know that it can make a world of difference when chasing down a bug in an application, so it's a much welcome addition to Phobos. I should also point out that this functionality is in CVS but not in the latest...

Visual design and development is a key capability offered by NetBeans Enterprise Pack 5.5 Beta, which became available last Friday from Sun. Developers of XML schemas might be interested in the two articles that I cowrote with three engineers on the development team: Writing XML Schemas by Example Introducing Design Patterns in XML Schemas Both articles are accompanied by screencasts that demo...

There's been quite a bit of activity on Project Phobos recently. A notable highlight is that jMaki is now fully integrated with Phobos, ready to serve your AJAX needs. jMaki offers a uniform interface to an ever-expanding set of AJAX components. When writing JSP and JSF components, jMaki appears as a tag library. For example, this JSP snippet inserts a Yahoo Map widget into the page: &lt;a:...

We have heard some comments from the community regarding the need to configure AJP Connector in GlassFish. I have gone ahead and expose the AJP Connector parameters in GlassFish so it's easy to configure the connector using a properties file. Quick blog on how to configure AJP Connector in GlassFish (1) First, install mod_jk - see Jeanfrancois's blog for more details (2) Copy three...

This week, my colleague Roger Kitain and I are sitting in the virtual advice booth, however, instead of doling out psychiatric help we're answering JSF questions. Please stop by at http://java.sun.com/developer/community/askxprt/ and ask some questions. My community support time that I normally spend on the JSF IRC channel is consumed with these questions this week, so you probably won't see me...

Just off the press on Sun Developer Network is a technical paper I cowrote with Sun engineer Krishna Meduri, Building and Deploying Web Services to Sun Java System Web Server 7.0 With the NetBeans 5.0 IDE. The title speaks for the content: You're stepped through the related procedures and also shown how to deploy and debug Web services.An appendix at the end of the article describes how to...

Wonder if you have come across these lines before: "I fix myself an Omelete, sir,Of fluffy clouds, and sky...I sew myself a warm cloak, sir,of hope and daffodils." Unlike this fanciful dilemma of "Poor Angus" of Shel Silverstein, in large IT corporations HTML prototypes can play a much more significant role. They can aid faster development times. They can secure budgets. They can...

The World Wide Web turned 15 on August 6! A sun.com feature story and a Read/Write Web interview with Sun technical luminaries Tim Bray and Radia Perlman reminisce the history, discuss the positives and negatives, and look ahead at the future. Not surprisingly, security is a major concern. Many of us would probably say that we've been online most of those 15 years. How the WWW has changed our...

As a few of you who read my previous blog on JEE being the official acronym for the Java Platform, Enterprise Edition pointed out, that was an error from a wrong source. The abbreviation is Java EE instead. Sun's official Java Branding Guide explains things clearly. My apologies, folks.
