The 2005 WritersUA Skills and Technologies Survey shows JavaHelp as valuable or invaluable to 12% of the respondents. But a careful look shows that the 12% is actually over 50% of the java repondents.
SwingLabs provides a variety of awesome components and frameworks. It now brings cool eye-candy effects for your Swing apps.
Recently, the javadesktop.org JDNC forum has hosted some spirited discussion
about using Swing JFormattedTextFields for decimal input/output. I'd written
a blog on a similar topic about 8 months ago and forgotten to actually publish it.
So here it is!
How do you persist your app preferences? In our search to tune startup performance, it would be helpful to know what developers need us to optimize.
Tom describes a way finalizer methods can be used to warn of bad code usage.
Here is how you can show licenses for bundled third-party libraries in a single user-friendly window.
You may have heard of SwingLabs, but how does it relate to Swing? Have you wondered about the contribution process, or why the JCA is required? In this blog I describe the relation between Swing and SwingLabs.
JavaServer Faces 1.2 and JavaServer Pages 2.1 Proposed Final Draft Specifications available
Come join a free online talk by George Vasick, software engineering manager of Sun Java Studio Enterprise, on a preview of that IDE on Tuesday, August 30, 2005, at 10:00 PDT/17:00 UTC on
I'm pleased to announce that Sun's implementation of JavaServer Faces is now open source, and it is available under the Common Development and Distribution License (CDDL).
This is part 1 of a series of blogs on the noteworthy capabilities new in Sun Java Studio Enterprise 8 Early Access.
How heartening to see Sun Java Studio Enterprise, a robust IDE, reach yet another milestone. Release 8 Early Access is available today.
Java Web Services and XML
Ryan and I launched another service to make it easy to own a project in java.net.
When you are working with JAXB-bound classes, it's sometimes convenient to be able to parse those JAXB annotations by yourself. For example, some people are interested in implementing a subset of XPath engine on top of JAXB beans. When doing this kind of stuff, you'd like to know answers for questions like "does this class have a property that maps to attribute name?" or "what's the element name of this class?" JAXB2 reflection library is exactly this kind of library.
WS-Addressing Core and SOAP Binding are now in Candidate Recommendation.
I recently rewrote the JAXB 2.0 unmarshaller in an attempt to get a better performance.
It's often convenient to be able to define a sophisticated reference integrity mechanism that goes beyond ID/IDREF. Jeremy Haile, one of the JAXB users, convinced me that we should do this in the RI. While it took me a month to get back to this, I was finally able to implement it. That's what I'm going to talk about today.
Creation of Virtual Machine agents improved with the new Java Virtual Machine (tm) Tool Interface (JVM TI) in JDK 5.0. If you are curious how VM agents work read on, but beware, native code lurks here.
Lately there has been several inquiries about JXTA's PipeService, and companion utilities (JxtaSocket, JxtaMulticastSocket, and JxtaBiDiPipe) on JXTA's discussion lists, hence this blog to shed more light on the PipeService and utilities provided, and their inherit features.
