On last saturday I have run a few experimental benchmarks on the typical new generation technology stack (or part of it). What I exactly did was running iAnywhere 10.0.1 database and Sun Application Server 9 (aka "Glassfish" aka "Java EE 5 SDK") in a VMware Server 1.0.3 virtual machine on my private laptop (AMD Turion 64 X2, 2 GB RAM). The benchmark was done using a small test...

One of the many cool new features in Java EE 6, is support for the DataSourceDefinition annotation.
The DataSourceDefinition annotation provides a way to define a DataSource and register it with JNDI. The annotation provided annotation elements for the commonly used DataSource properties. Additional standard and vendor specific properties may also be specified.
So let us look at an example:

Typical users of GlassFish use GlassFish in a separate process and they start GlassFish by using commands like the following:
java -jar glassfish.jar orasadmin start-domain
The above commands first launch an OSGi framework and then deploy the necessary bundles. What if you want to embed GlassFish in an...

RESTless about RESTful
These days there is much discussion about REST and HATEOAS, and many people feel urged to reinterpret what HATEOAS means or what Roy Fielding's often-cited dissertation allegedly would say in their understanding, and what HATEOAS should be implemented like therefore. While I first felt amused about this "dispute about nothing" (just ask Mr Fielding if you don't...

GlassFish v3 comes bundled with Metro - a secure, reliable, transactional, and .NET interoperable Web services stack. Metro is compliant with JAX-WS and provides additional quality of service attributes that can be easily enabled using NetBeans IDE.
This blog contains a screencast that shows how to create a simple Web service using NetBeans 6.8, implement the business logic by accessing a...

Converged (Http/SIP) applications gives users the flexibility of creating or accessing information about their communications (call/conferences/im ...) over the web. To make this possible a typical converged application would contain an entry point for all the Http requests, which is mostly an Http Servlet. This servlet would return back appropriate responses by accessing the corresponding...

According to the PrimeFaces website, "PrimeFaces is an open source component suite for Java Server Faces featuring 70+ Ajax powered rich set of JSF components. Additional TouchFaces module features a UI kit for developing mobile web applications.". Since it is an OpenSource JSF implementation that is very close to releasing JSF 2.0 compliant components, I figured it was time to try it...

SIP Servlets provide a server side Java abstraction to SIP protocol and it is based on familiar servlet model. This enables an application developer to use Java servlet programming to write Converged applications. What exactly is the meaning of "converged applications"? SIP Servlet Specification explains this as follows
"While the SIP Servlet API can certainly be implemented...

Shing Wai's post explains the @ServletSecurity annotation that has been introduced newly in JavaEE 6 (Servlet 3.0 specification). The @ServletSecurity annotation provides an alternative mechanism for defining access control constraints equivalent to those that could otherwise have been expressed declaratively via security-constraint elements in the portable deployment descriptor. There is also a...

In the past few month several Java EE 6 related JSRs (Java Specification Requests) have been finalized. The final ballot for them ended on November 30 and all were approved. Today, December 10, 2009, Java EE 6 and GlassFish v3, THE reference implementation of Java EE6, are released.
Four and a half year after the release of Java EE 5 we enter the next Java EE era. GlassFish v3 is the first...

NetBeans 6.8 released coordinated with GlassFish v3 today. NetBeans 6.8 can be considered a fine step ahead of NetBeans because Sun is officially supporting the NetBeans RCP platform as a product from now on.
NetBeans 6.8 features are as follow:
Java Enterprise Edition 6 support
Web Projects with JavaServer Faces 2.0 (Facelets)
JavaFX 1.2.1 support

After configuring Hudson to run in a Glassfish with security manager enabled I started to have problems in other applications, specially web applications using reflection to access private fields in Java classes. Over the web I noticed a lot of people struggling with the same issue (Seam, GWT, Vaadin, etc). The problem is caused because most of the modern frameworks tries to access Java...
