JavaOne is upon
us again already!
I previously wrote about compiling the JMX API in Mustang by extracting the necessary subset of the sources and getting your IDE to make a build.xml for you.
As you'll no doubt have read
the Mustang Beta Release is href="http://java.sun.com/javase/6">now available.
One of the important new features of the JMX API in Mustang
(Java SE 6) is the ability to create MXBeans.
The JMX plugin for NetBeans has graduated from version 0.x to version 1.0. It's now available from the main NetBeans Update Center, rather than the Update Center Beta as before. My colleague Jean-FranÃ§ois Denise (one of the driving forces behind this plugin) has the details on his blog.
There are tons of books and articles about how to design and write good Java code, but surprisingly little about the specific topic of API design. On my artima.com blog I wrote a summary of what I've learnt on the subject from various sources and my own experience.
How would you go about using the JMX API to instrument AWT events? What would it gain you? My colleague Jean-FranÃ§ois Denise answers in detail in his blog.
