This morning is was in my shower, thinking about life, sea etc,
when the word 'dolphin' pop in my mind.
It instantly remember that day, when SUN management decide to
stop using codenames.
Recently, Shannon posts version 1.0 of beanbindings, even
if this version is not ready for production use,
it is stable enough to create a small demo mixing
property language support and
Shannon Hickey recently post a blog entry about
a new release of Beans Binding project at
I have take a look to the documentation and my first belief is
that the API doesn't guide the user enough.
This is a new step in my quest (or curse) to
provide properties to Java.
I've written a new version of the proposal (the third draft)
of the property spec, available as a google doc
property draft (v3)
The purpose of JSR 308 is to allow to
define annotation on types.
Currently, the JLS 3 only allows to annotate
language elements than accept modifiers so
it's not possible to annotate types.
Why allowing this is a good idea ?
This entry is the second draft of my property proposal, i have tried to gather all the ideas proposed since my first post about properties.
Why do we need a property syntax in Java ?
