In the latest months I've presented blueMarine at a lot of conferenced and meetings, so now I'm going to change a bit the focus (but don't panic :-) blueMarine will be again at the center of a JavaPolis presentation).
A few months ago I blogged about how to optimize a large NetBeans RCP project by splitting it in parts and taking advantage of a technique known as "suite chaining". Now I'm going forward as I have some more complex requirements to meet and suite chaining doesn't fit with them.
Apart from specific SWT-AWT stuff that is related to Eclipse, one of the most common things that could happen are differences in font rendering (antialiasing) and speed changes in Java2D stuff, imaging included.
That's because the JDK 5 with Leopard doesn't use any longer the Quartz pipeline by default, but the Sun one.
For my today's presentation of blueMarine I really intended to use Linux Ubuntu for the first time - but it's incredible how creative mr. Murphy is (in the end the presentation was perfectly fine, but on Mac OS X).
I'd love to talk more about this, but I'm again near to a deadline and tomorrow I have to talk at the JUG Torino Java Day - everything is ready but I'd like to use for the first time Linux Ubuntu for the presentation, so there's something to double check tonight (even if Mac OS X is ready for a backup, of course).
Tomorrow is the day of Linux Ubuntu 7.10, "Gutsy Gibbon" - but I have already installed the Release Candidate.
