Our recently completed poll about the Adopt OpenJDK project suggests that the project is gaining some visibility among Java developers, but there's a large group that isn't all that familiar with the project...
The long overdue Clojure example for VisualLangLab's API is now available!
For us at Amway Corp, a key part of creating batch processes, with Java, was using the LaunchClient command and
J2EE Client applications. We felt we were very close to being able to run our Java batch processes on the
application server. But more trials and tribulations were ahead of us.
We created a J2EE Client application\program that would call a "hello world" EJB.
After deploying the code to...
VisualLangLab grammars are now even more intuitive. Earlier versions required all tokens to have a user-specified alphanumeric name that was displayed in the body of rules. Now, a token's pattern, enclosed in quote marks, can be used as the name.

In order to successfully migrate our mainframe application to a Java/application server based solution,
we had to figure out how to migrate our batch processes.
We had a very good start, in achieving this, by utilizing the LaunchClient command and J2EE Client programs.
It was just a matter of putting the remaining pieces together into a working solution.
But we were running into a lot of trouble...
Our first Java application (10 years ago) was a migration of a legacy application.
The legacy application consisted of a number of screens and a number of batch processes.
Migrating the screens to Java technology seemed straight forward.
In theory, they would be a direct use of the MVC pattern (EJB, JSP, Servlet). Easy.
But what about the batch processes? They didn't seem to fit the MVC pattern....
Martijn Verburg, of the London Java Community, announced on the Java.net JUG-Leaders mailing list that the Adopt OpenJDK program is seeking Java User Groups for a new Adopt OpenJDK Bugathon pilot training program. Martijn said...
Our Java application supports my company's (Amway Corp) Customer and Sales Compensation areas.
This is a very unique and complex part the Amway's business model.
The application requires a large database to store business-related data.
The database consists of dozens of tables and millions of rows.
It contains transactional data and summarized data.
The size of the database grows daily.
I can see the new Java will have new standard that adopt Android.. or make Android become java.mobile.next. YEs, to late, because why dont make it years before.. this smiliar case with Spring to JavaEE DI.. Spring has big community there, and several will stay happy with Spring. esp modules of Spring is awesome. Can JCP success bring Android to Java?
As our Java project progressed, we began to add new members to our development team.
This meant many resumes to review and many interviews to conduct.
It was to become quite a time consuming chore for the interviewers.
During a portion of the interview, a series of technical questions about Java are asked.
The goal behind these questions is to allow the interviewee to talk to us about Java.

Some interesting announcements from the Java.net Java User Groups Community have been posted recently on the Java.net JUG-Leaders mailing list, related to upcoming JUG events, JUG activities, and more. In this blog, I highlight four recent announcements...
During the initial architecture and analysis of our J2EE-based application,
one Java issue generated a lot of attention on our team : Enterprise Java Beans or EJBs.
Should we use EJBs?
What flavor of EJBs should we use?
At the time, we received no practical advice on EJB usage.
We got a lot of general advice. "Use what is best for you, etc."
Quite often, we were referred to a diagram with a lot...
In the beginning, our development team had no Java experience at all.
Most of us were mainframe developers with a decade or so of IT experience.
We realized that not only did we need Java training, but we needed training
on object-oriented concepts as well. It seemed like a very challenging goal to achieve.
One of the reasons we chose our particular Java software tools vendor
is because their...
