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).

NetBeans RCP - beyond suite chaining

Posted by fabriziogiudici on November 3, 2007 at 4:30 PM PDT

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.

File a bug to Apple: add Java 6 to Mac OS X

Henry Story is calling for action. Let's file a bug to Apple asking for Java 6 on Mac OS X!

Leopard changed the Java2D pipeline of Java 5 (and other Leopard+Java updates)

Posted by fabriziogiudici on October 30, 2007 at 4:30 AM PDT

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.

So, no Java 6 with Leopard

Posted by fabriziogiudici on October 27, 2007 at 11:09 AM PDT
Within the 300+ new features of Leopard, two are those I was waiting for: Java 6 and the ZFS file system. Now that none of them is there (ZFS support is read-only), what's next?

Things can fail in unpredictable ways

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).

Did the web fail the iPhone?

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).

Gutsy Gibbon: thumbs up

Tomorrow is the day of Linux Ubuntu 7.10, "Gutsy Gibbon" - but I have already installed the Release Candidate.

A Fall rich of italian Java events...

Posted by fabriziogiudici on October 10, 2007 at 5:39 AM PDT

On Saturday Oct 20th, JUG Torino will host the Java Day 2007. It's a small but interesting event, with excellent speakers and subjects. I'll be presenting NetBeans RCP and blueMarine.
