Lots of people have opined on Apple's iPad, many deriding it's closed nature and lack of features. The thing is, those problems don't matter to most people. The iPad isn't for you or me. It's for everyone else. I've spent the last 20 year hoping we would have the technology to build such a device, even though I knew it was a device I would not personally use. But that doesn't matter..
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.
We just released version 0.5.3 which is still very restricted and far from feature complete - we don't even...
Apache Pivot graduates to top-level Apache project
In this post I am going to sum up things I have learned while creating a fluent API (or internal DSL) in Java. I'll talk about the search API I created for my current position: it's not a toy problem, it's a real problem, which has a significant amount of complexity. Because of that complexity, you get to see techniques and ideas that you don't usually see in toy examples. I am not including the...
Last week Apple released their latest product destined to change the world (the iPad). At least that's what they want us to believe. Perhaps the biggest controversy over the thing is the lack of Flash capability. However this being java.net I have to wonder out loud, where is Java capability, and more importantly why isn't as much controversy being raised over Java being missing? But I think we all can enumerate some reasons for both being missing. And it's worth it for the Java community to ponder this issue.

I love owls; they are so elegant and have a strong personality (too bad in so many years I've been unable to take photos at any of them!). Unfortunately in my culture (and probably many others) they have also got a bad reputation, as they were considered messengers of bad fortune. It's for this reason that in italian a "gufo" is also a person who, for innate attitude or purportedly,...
Is Go a Java replacement? Of course not, but I do wonder what Google's up to.

When I first heard about composite components in JSF 2, I asked "How do I make a date picker that yields a java.util.Date? I was told that can't be done without a custom component and lots of icky code. Not so--it is actually pretty easy. Here are the details."

Ed responds to Byrne and Sulaycki of SpiderLabs about their upcoming BlackHat presentation about view state security in JSF.
Yet another week of development is nearly over (at least for me). What was this week all about? Apart from the really low temperatures outside (on Tuesday it was -24C at 4am), I focused mainly on extending the multi-site support in Magnolia.
This feature exists for years already. But what it really means in context of Magnolia? In general you can setup the server to run mulptiple domains and you...
