The IT industry has realized that today's cutting edge technology is tomorrow's legacy.
Sun's Web Services and XML group has openings in the USA (West and East

javadoc is a really powerful tool, and it's customizable. So I wrote a few taglets and customized the standard doclet to use it as my project architecture documentation tool. It's one show case of taking javadoc to the extreme.
Do applications really need to throw an exception and know that it is a header fault ?
IntelliJ IDEA 5.0 was released a week ago. Here's how you can set your favourite look-and-feel to make you feel at home.
Fry's is selling Swing Hacks for five dollars with a rebate.

Another scrambled jar.
A couple of weeks ago I've modified ThinG, the visual Thinlet editor created by Dirk MÃ¶bius, in order to embed it into NetBeans as part of the ThinNB family of plugins. Here are a few tips for those writing applications that might be used inside IDEs and still work in standalone mode.
