Swing

Having blogged this hack some years ago (Event Pump DTs), today i actually used it. The idea is to execute a long running task in the background, while blocking our app, seemingly on the EDT, while waiting for the task to complete. The hack involves using a zero-sized dialog. In this case, the EDT is not blocked from handling other events in the queue eg. as a response to user actions in the...

Finally ... SwingX-WS 1.0 have been released. And no, don't ask, I don't have any explicit release notes for that. No bells and whistles. The release is just an official version of something that has been lying in repository for quite some time. BTW, if you would like to become a committer on this project please let us know on the SwingLabs forum. You can find the files at SwingLabs download page...

OpenSolaris

I've been trying to install OpenSolaris since 2006, with no luck. At that time, probably, there were some blocking bugs of the installer when working in a MacBook Pro; furthermore network drivers were only available for 64 bits (and I only got a first generation MacBook Pro). About one year ago I bought a 64-bit MacBook Pro and probably the bugs had been fixed by that time, but I filled my 500GiB...

Programming

Last June, Arnold Schwaighofer push a patch to mlvm repository that allow to transform tail call invocation of a method to a jump. Even if this transformation is classical in language like Lisp, Scheme or Caml, the JVM was not offering any help to optimize this kind of call until this patch. Recently, Tom Davies has refreshed the patch in order to be used with a more recent...

Mark Reinhold recently blogs about the renaissance of closure in Java (*). In his blog, he also wrote that in order to have closures in Java, Java will have to include another feature named extension methods. As you may already know, I'm a big fan of closures but the introduction of extension methods in Java really scary me. * Ok, they are more lambdas than closures. Why extension...

EJB

The long awaited and the most looked upon version of GlassFish released today. GlassFish v3 fully implements Java EE 6 specification which means EJB 3.1, Servlet 3, JAX-RS, JPA 2, Contexts and Dependency Injection for Java EE, Bean validation, Java EE profiles and so on.  GlassFish is not only the most up to date application server but it also benefits from a very good architecture.

Performance

One of the new features of Glassfish V3 is directory deployment of ruby applications.  This makes is much easier to develop and deploy ruby applications on Glassfish since developers no longer need to package ruby apps as wars using goldspike or warbler as was required for Glassfish V2.  However there are other good reasons to run your rails applications on Glassfish V3.  One of...

J2SE

Caching of an empty array is a well-known pattern to improve performance. However, it is difficult to use it in generified classes. Out of curiosity, I created a custom implementation of the array creation method based on Array.newInstance. To cache empty arrays, I use synchronized WeakHashMap, which maps any given component type to a weak reference to the corresponding empty array. This is not...

Web Services and XML

A small JAXB puzzle: how to define a custom element to serialize Date objects with the TimeZone information? Piece of cake, isn't it? Try it yourself and you will be surprised with the tricky details. A friend of mine gave me a JAXB challenge this week: his company already uses a customization of the xsd:date type in a legacy code - mapped to a proprietary type instead of the default Calendar...

Instant Messaging

CommunicationBean defined in SailFin CAFE act as the listener for any communication events. For example, in case of instant messaging between two SIP clients, a CommunicationBean would intercept all the messages. These messages are available to the CommunicationBean implementation as POJO. That also mean that, you can implement the business logic in the CommunicationBean. This example...
