So, here is the deal. I've created a generic DAO class that looks like the following:
The previous weblog says
JEE is The Official Acronym for Java Enterprise Edition. That's not true - the new name for the <img alt="technology formerly known as J2EE"> is - and always have been - Java EE.
Much has been talked about the commoditization of the Java EE application server, specially now that 2 servers (Sun's Glassfish and Apache's Geronimo) are available under 'unrestricted' open-source licenses (JBoss and JOnAS are also open-source software and have been out there for more time, but they are licensed thorugh LGPL, and therefore cannot be modified unless the modifications are also made
Installing Netbeans 5.5 "some large Sun-style name for stuff that changes name on each release" Preview on Mac OS X
I'm writing the web services material for Globalcode's brand new course on Java Enterprise development, so I decided to give NetBeans 5.5 Preview/Glassfish a try (after all, WS with annotations is one of the ease-of-development promisses of Java EE 5).
I'm going to the JavaOne conference for the 3rd consecutive year and this year I'm planning to write more about it (on blogs or even articles).
In fact, I've seen many blogs and forum posts where people complain about the conference not being as cool as before, because it's more marketing than geek, etc.

I haven't blogged in a while - even after attending Java One 2004, which is source for blogging heaven - but I couldn't let this date pass on without making some noise.

JSTL's SQL and XML are controversial taglibs. A lot of people complain they hurt the MVC principles, while others defend they can be useful in some situations (specially on protoypes and small projects). The truth is, both sides are right: it can causes great havoc in a MVC-based application, but it is an invaluable tool in small, time-limited projects like the one shown below
