JAX-RPC 2.0 EA was released few days ago but supported only Sun Java System App Server 8.1 as the container. This blog tells you how to install JAX-RPC 2.0 EA over JWSDP 1.5.
Many people seem to have troubles understanding XmlAdapter/XmlJavaTypeAdapter,
I think it's at least partially because of the lack of documentation/samples,
but it might be that there's a problem in the design, and if so that's not good.
So today, I'm going to talk about XmlAdapter/XmlJavaTypeAdapter so that people
can make more informed discussions about it.
I have revamped the JWSDP developer's home page at Java.Net.
Source code of JAXB RI and its libraries are finally open to public on java.net.

My pet peave that Netbeans couldn't limit a search/replace to the selected text has been addressed.
In this tutorial, I show you how to use XDoclet with NetBeans to generate the necessary deployment descriptors for JBoss and other application servers.
What NetBeans, SPECjAppServer2004, Visual GC, ANT, JBoss and Demi Moore have in common?
Seems that it exists a tradition at NetBeans to modify their graphic chart every years/2 years.

Ludovic Champenois, one of the lead engineers on the J2EE functionality in NetBeans asked in his blog what we would like to see in NetBeans 4.2 or even NetBeans 5.0. So, here is my wish list.
Ever want to go back in time and unmake a coding decision? Was it after a honeymoon period where you found some critical problem in something you'd bet on heavily and publicly?

Someone needed the software to work in JSDK 1.4, and I wanted to step into the way-back machine, return to August and start again. Then a fellow developer sent me a link to Retroweaver.
The GNU folks have released version 4.0 of the venerable GCC compiler with built-in support for the C, C++, Objective-C, Ada, Fortran, and Java programming languages.
In the recent months, the JDIC team has been working closely with the J2SE team to incorporate some of the exciting features from JDIC into Mustang. This shows a potential reward in contributing to the JDIC project: one day the contributed feature may become integrated into J2SE!
I've been working from home in Atlanta since I started at Sun. I have two homes under renovation and a lot of things to take care of before I can move out west, so working from home for a few months seemed like the best solution. The problem is I only own a laptop, my new iBook. Coding and writing for 10 hours a day on a 1024x768 screen really is no fun. I've got a USB hub, mouse, and keyboard...
Enough people have asked us what we're working on for Mustang and how that work is going that we wrote an article about it that covers the highlights.
Swing's new approach to double-buffering gets rid of the old "gray rect" artifact and makes Swing performance much more snappy. Download the bits now at the mustang site. Now! Go on, do it! I'll wait....
