I've known about fleXive since JSF
Days 2009, when I met its lead engineer, Daniel
Lichtenberger. At the time, we were trying to get them into the
GlassFish partner program, but due to lack of resources, this didn't pan
out. Daniel continued to work on fleXive steadily. This year, at
JAX-2010, they had a booth. It's great technology, and I encourage you
to check it out.

My 3 years old MacBook Pro went suddenly dead this week. Annoying as it is, this event allowed me to experience cloud computing like never before.
This notebook has been my main computer for the past 3 years. I used it for everything and carried it around wherever I went.
One day this week I was using it with tons of apps open as usual (I am known to never close anything...why do we have 4GB RAM...

So we're back in the stone age of computing where people have to save their work every other minute to not lose everything.
Today I lost a really pleasant blog article (and with it, two hours of work) by pressing the "Preview" button in java.net's everything-but-superb editor: It told me that I was logged off (why ever, since my connection still created traffic), threw away the so far...

I just learned how to make Flash screencasts on my Linux system and deliver them (with GlassFish) on a server that the computer science department received as a donation (thanks Sun!!!).
Why am I doing this? My publisher wants me to develop screencasts for my books, and I thought it could be useful for my students if I record my lectures. I use a smart board for the lectures, and a screencast...

Is it still possible to ask this question in 2010?
Isn’t the answer obvious ?
Well no ! It was the question I was asking myself three years ago, even though I had been working as a consultant and Java trainer for seven years. In 2007, my ex-colleague Éric Marcoux (Oracle ACE Director) suggested I join JUG Québec (Canada). I said JUG ? Java User…What ?...

So finally, after endless nights, my new web site Head Crashing Informatics is finished. Learned a lot on XHTML and CSS by coding it completely by hand (yes, really, did not use any design tool, as I love to code and always want to see what's going on behind the scenes). In the future you'll find my latest stuff there, research results, code snippets, background information on my projects, and...

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...
