Over the weekend, I was reading Mark Pilgrim's great book on HTML5 - and when I got to the part about the semantic tags, I thought it might be worth a quick mention.
In case you've missed out on HTML5 in general (and don't want to take the time to read that book I linked above), the idea behind semantic tags is that many sites use div blocks to mark out the same kinds of content, over and over....
OpenAjax is an organization which has a specification detailing a standard way to do intercomponent communication on the client side of Web applications. While JSF 2 didn't adopt this standard into it's specification, it's easy enough to bridge the two. Here's some demo code that does just that.
I've had a few requests on how to write a busy status indicator in JSF 2 - you know, the little spinning ball that's there while an Ajax call is active, and which goes away once the request is complete. So, I spent a bit less than a couple hours today, and did just that - including putting it into a component so it's reusable.
A few weeks ago, I blogged about ways to execute scripts on the client which you were writing out from the server via Ajax. By popular demand, the latest build of Mojarra now allows execution of inline scripts.
Project Mojarra releases its second revision of its JSF 2.0 PR implemenatation. Come check it out.
The Mojarra Project is proud to announce the release of the JSF 2.0 EDR2 implementation.

A short blog on tainting, and how you shouldn't be worried if you look at the GlassFish codebase.
As you know, we've open sourced Sun's AS PE. Recently, some people have taken us to task on not doing the rest of it too. Leaving aside the "geez, are we ever going to not get flack" factor, I thought I'd post this...
OK, there's a new concern that a few people raised about Sun's Open Source strategy - the Joint Copyright assignment. I'll try to explain why its not a Sun Evil Plot(tm), and why we're doing what we're doing. I'll also give other examples in industry of folks who are doing the same thing, and explain why.
Apparently, Marc Fleury is either the most misquoted CEO in history, or he really doesn't know what Open Source is. Weird...
