Web Design

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....

The Open Ajax Alliance is a standards organization with the mission of ensuring interoperability within Web based Ajaxified applications. One of their standards relates to intercomponent communication - the ability to subscribe and publish messages which can then be picked up by code written by other authors. Please note that if you don't have an interest in Open Ajax, this post may not be...

I've had a few requests on how to write a busy status indicator - 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 about two hours today, and did just that - including putting it into a component so it's reusable. As usual, it involved no Java, and only a minimal amount of JavaScript. First, I needed...

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. So, instead of having to either bundle code into an <eval> tag, or using an event to execute it later, you can now simply say something like: <script type="text/...

The Mojarra Project is proud to announce the second release of the JSF 2.0 PR implementation (which we're calling PR2, for lack of a better name). The binaries and sources can be downloaded from here, or by checking the GlassFish v3 Prelude update center (it should be available there by Monday). As always, you can see the release notes for any additional information. We're very proud of the...

The Mojarra Project is proud to announce the release of the JSF 2.0 EDR2 implementation. "EDR" stands for Early Draft Review, so this is an early snapshot of what we're doing with the new version of JSF. It should be of interest to anyone who'd like to see where JSF is headed in the months ahead. You can download the new API, along with the implementation, from the Mojarra project download...

The Mojarra Project is proud to announce the release of the JSF 2.0 EDR1 implementation.

I recently had a very sincere person, who I have every reason to respect, tell me: "I thought about downloading your code, but I don't want to be tainted." He further went on to say "If you had a statement about that on your website, I'd feel better about it." Frankly, I was a bit taken aback. Weren't we Open Source? Was this the leading edge of another Sun Evil Plot (tm)? I was right next...

As you know, we've open sourced Sun's AS PE (as Project GlassFish). 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... In a recent article in Developer Pipeline, my boss got asked about opening the rest of it: CRN: Will all editions of the application server be available...

In my last blog's comments, I had a couple of people raise the issue of joint copyright assignment. The subject was raised with the greatest respect and concern, and I'd like to thank the posters for giving me a chance to talk about it. There continues to be a lingering uneasiness about Sun's new foray into Open Source, so I'll probably be blogging on this and related subjects for the next few...

In a recent article, both Marc Fleury of JBoss and Bill Roth of BEA are said to be telling the press that CDDL isn't Open Source. Drat, apparently neither of them read my blog. So, one more time: CDDL is Open Source. Why can I say that with absolute confidence? Because Open Source is an servicemark that is owned by the OSI. They're essentially the Good Housekeeping Seal for licenses. BEA,...
