This is a follow-up to the blog "Developing SGMP Connectors using JAX-RS" where I focus on how to
Last week we announced the availability of version 1.1 of the Sun GlassFish Mobility Platform (SGMP), formerly known as Mobile Enterprise Platform (MEP). In the previous version, a connector could only be developed using the ECBO API; in this new version, a connector can also be developed using JAX-RS.
In case you missed it, the call is open for JavaOne 2009 submissions and the deadline is December 19th, 2008. Contrary to the last few years, the conference will be in early June in 2009, so there's plenty of time for your travel plans but not a lot of time to prepare your abstracts!
In this installment of the Developing MEP Connectors series we focus on the development cycle of a MEP connector, including source code generation from a template, compilation and deployment.
In the two installments of this series we've looked at the architecture of a MEP connector, discussed the main abstractions of the ECBO (Enterprise Connector Business Object) API and showed an example of a MusicAlbum business object.
Last week I returned from Buenos Aires, Argentina where I had a chance to speak about Glassfish. I visited two of the major universities (UBA and ITBA) and also spoke at the free software conference Jornadas Regionales de Software Libre (JRSL).
In the first installment of these series we've looked at the architecture of a MEP connector and briefly discuss the main abstractions in the ECBO (Enterprise Connector Business Object) API: BusinessObject and BusinessObject provider.
Developing an application using the Sun Java Mobile Enterprise Platform (MEP) requires writing two components: a sync client application that runs on the mobile device and an enterprise connector that enables the MEP gateway to access the back-end system where the data is located.
It's been several months since my last blog. The reason is that I have been deeply involved in this new product called MEP (Mobile Enterprise Platform) and I really couldn't say much about it. However, version 1.0 has just been released, so it's time to open the blog gates. See announcement here for additional info about MEP.
More users usually translates into more requests for features. A few more developers have picked up Japex in the last month, and a couple have asked me to provide additional features for their benchmarks. Two new global parameters are supported in Japex 1.1.4: japex.runIterationDelay and japex.singleClassLoader.
