My latest hobby project went online today. This project, named "sorcerer" generates HTML files from Java source code, and it does so in a way better than existing tools, thanks to the excellent javac tree API in JDK6.
I just posted the early access release of the JAXB RI 2.1.
We just rolled out a new service for the java.net projects called cvs-news. This lets you "see" what's going on in various participating java.net projects. Every time someone makes an interesting change, it will show up in cvs-news --- the delay is up to a few minutes.
I just finished implementing the proposed separate compilation feature in the JAXB RI 2.1. So today I'm going to talk about how this proposed feature works, in the hope of getting more feedback for this proposal.
Besides the spec improvements that are planned for 2.1, we are thinking about a bunch of implementation improvements. I've been working for the past 2 days coding intensively to implement one of them, and it's ready for you to try.
The JAXB project has been getting a lot of contributions lately.
As I talked before, the first wave of plugins are now available for download. Those are the japex plugin and the java.net uploader plugin.
At work, I and my colleagues rely heavily on java.net.
Some time ago, James Strachan and I had a little chat about how JAXB can be a key functionality for a dependency injection (DI) container.
