The first "Java Agri-Meeting"...

Posted by fabriziogiudici on October 9, 2007 at 6:19 AM PDT

A few months ago, just returned from Jazoon, a few italian JUG leaders and members started thinking about a strange fact. In spite of a quite large number of JUGs and of the relative short distance among them (usually 100-200km), we keep on meeting only abroad during events such as JavaPolis or Jazoon and we seldom do in our country.

A quick question about the "Customer JRE"...

Posted by fabriziogiudici on October 6, 2007 at 11:29 AM PDT

... or whatever they will call it.

The concept is that we will have a Java core ("kernel") with a small footprint (a few megabytes) and the runtime will be able to download other parts of the JRE. My question: where is the boundary of the "downloadable stuff"? Will be available only the set of JARs that is today in Java 6?

From A to Web...

Posted by fabriziogiudici on October 3, 2007 at 5:46 PM PDT

Are you a Java developer/architect interested in Rich Internet Applications? Curious about JavaFX? Do you use AJAX? Interested in some comparison with Adobe's Flex?

Well, a good architect should know, in addition to his/her favourite stuff, also some of the most important competing technologies - just to be more aware of his/her own choices.

Three NetBeans Days in a week

Posted by fabriziogiudici on October 2, 2007 at 12:55 AM PDT

After being present at three NetBeans Days in a week (Rome, Milan, Cagliari) my admiration for NetBeans evangelists has increased.

In fact, not only they are technically excellent, but they prove to have a high physical resistance! Changing so many towns in several days and, in spite of that, being fresh and relaxed to deliver a high level presentation is not easy.

NetBeans Governance Board elections in progress

Posted by fabriziogiudici on September 26, 2007 at 9:30 AM PDT

Just a quick reminder: the elections for the NetBeans Governance Board are in progress. It's a group of three persons that deal with irresolvable disputes about the evolution of NetBeans (something that usually happens seldom, but it may happen).

Good advice: buy that book

Posted by fabriziogiudici on September 19, 2007 at 6:29 AM PDT

I received my copy of "Filthy Rich Clients" by Chet Haase and Romain Guy a few days ago (now in good company with "Rich Client Programming"), but until this morning I didn't find the time to read it.

Work in progress: ForceTen

Posted by fabriziogiudici on September 16, 2007 at 11:19 AM PDT

By the end of the year, blueMarine should hopefully spin off another sub-project: ForceTen, focused on the world of map rendering and geotagging.

Dilbert codes in Java! :-)

Posted by fabriziogiudici on September 7, 2007 at 8:07 AM PDT

So, it's high time we ignored all those useless polls "which language do you use most?" or those brain-damaging inferences about  programming book sells or job ads - the really important point is that Dilbert codes in Java. Nothing else matters. ;-)

What about Movies?

Posted by fabriziogiudici on August 28, 2007 at 4:37 AM PDT

In the latest days I've writing some code to investigate about how hard or easy would be to extend blueMarine capabilities to manage movies in addition to photos.

Creative use of the NetBeans Visual Library: the Light Table

Posted by fabriziogiudici on August 21, 2007 at 11:24 AM PDT

The Visual Library is one of the coolest things that the NetBeans guys delivered with NetBeans 6. It is a rich API which allows you to create a sort of "blackboard" where objects can be added, removed, edited, moved, resized, and connected in a visual graph.
