50.000 times too slow?

Recently I was in urged to do a web project with the latest and coolest web framework Ruby on Rails.

That's just one line of code grabbed from somewhere:

fully concentrate on business logic...

How often have I read about cool new technologies where, after all, the programmer can now 'fully concentrate on the business logic'.

This meanwhile happens since at least 20 years so I wonder why still anybody does something else than concentrating on the 'business logic'?

Eclipse, COM ... nothing new...

When reading I got the impression that certain solutions always come back, are quite universal and independant of domain, language or environment.

Bundle-Bee - transparent, grid-distributed OSGi computing

Posted by herkules on January 28, 2010 at 4:43 AM PST

In my famous company innoQ I currently have the opportunity to work on a real cool tool: Bundle-Bee. It claims to be able to take any OSGi bundle and distribute the computational load to an ad-hoc grid (e.g. all machines in an office) without special setup or configuration.

RMI .... cool somehow

Do you know that feeling? Something annoys you and you have to tell somebody? This is the bare reason for this blog entry. Don't read it. It is just for me to make me feel better.

In my latest blog
I wrote about the TrackIR device and my Java binding

Head banging...

TrackIR is a headtracking device that currently is quite popular amongst gamers, especially in the simulation community.
It consists of a small device to be placed on top of the monitor and a prepared base cap with three IR reflecting strips.
JTrackIR is my Java binding.

Are you doing engineering using Java? Or even science? Than you sometimes might need to calculate how objects move under
the impression of forces and torques.
