Rickard Oeberg's (co-founder of JBoss) blog points to the JBoss Issue Blog where he and Matthias Bohnen discusses issues related to JBoss. So far Marc Fleury and the rest of the JBoss Inc.
Today I just stumbled over the press release of JBoss announcing a partnership of some sort even though it is not clear to me what this means. This release does not surprise me from a business view but I am surprised from my past experiences working on JBoss.
Yes, I have to admit I do not use patterns and I hardly know any of them. Seven years ago I bought the book "Patterns in Java" and looked at it only to find out that most of them I already knew and had already applied. So this book went to the shelf to remain there until, I think, it was recycled.
After the magical dust of JavaOne has settled the reality is reappearing and we can start thinking about the results. Especially Sun's announcement (beside buying my current employer) of open-sourcing their application server was a hot topic here even though I did not quite trust all the fuss around it.
The jPodder team is proud to be the current Duke's pick hoping that Duke is using it, too. Podcasting is like the Internet 15 years ago where the users and providers made things happening rather than waiting for something to presented to them.
Missing another JavaOne I sitting in my cubicle and reading my emails like every mooning when it hits me. Sun announced that they are going to acquire SeeBeyond, my employer, which was not really a surprise but the timing is. So I am going to see Scott McNealy tomorrow where he may (or may not) shed some more light into the acquisition.
In case you listened to Steve Job's Keynote presentation at the WWDC you probably noticed that he spoke about potcasting and that it is a hot thing. Now when Apple is jumping on the podcast bandwagon and probably Microsoft is doing it quite soon then it must be a cool thing, don't you think.
I am delighted to announce that several months of hard work finally paid off and we could release jPodder 0.9 last Sunday. If you like podcasting or where wondering what it is or where not quite happy with your current Podcast receiver then you should read on.
Podcasting is same as Blogging except that it handles media files instead of text.
A few Java community leaders were invited to participate in a summit organized by Microsoft and Rick Ross, the founder of JavaLobby, created presentation about it. No matter if you like, dislike or hate Microsoft the presentation is worthwhile to be listened to.
John Reynold's Blog discusses the question if the Java exams are helping you to learn Java or help the provider to indoctrinate their (marketing) philosophy.
