The Java University course Exploring the Struts Framework and How it Supports Web Component Development was really outstanding. I wasn't sure exactly what to expect, as this area of JavaOne was new to me. I was pleasantly surprised.
The area surrounding the rooms was crowded when I arrived, and more and more people arrived during my half an hour wait. I wondered how they were going to...

In my spare time I've started playing with Flash-based screencasts. My last attempt is a fly-by through all the JavaOne activities I know related to Project GlassFish. Just point your browser to this page.
Earlier in the week I also put together a couple of presentations using the same technology:
Overview of Java EE 5 and a
Teaser on the GlassFish Implementation.
I'm still learning the...

Looking at some of the recent postings in the GlassFish forum, there appears to be some confusion in the GlassFish user community about which build to use. I will try to address the issue in this blog.
The main reason for this confusion is due to presence of two very active branches in the GlassFish CVS repository, viz: SJSAS90_FCS_BRANCH and the trunk (a.k.a. the main branch). They look...

Since the public draft of the JDBC spec, the JDBC EG has reworked the SQLXML interface completely providing for more flexibility. The new version of the interface will be available in the Java SE 6 upcoming beta and should also be available in the current nightly builds.
The SQLXML interface provides methods for accessing the XML data in a datasource as a String, a Reader or Writer, or as a...

I wanted to try and clear up some misunderstandings about exactly what license applies to the binary distributions of GlassFish.
The majority of the GlassFish code is available under the Common Development and Distribution License (CDDL) v1.0 and that applies to source code as well as the binary format. There are components which are open source products under different licenses such as...

There was no winner on the GlassFish bug filing contest. There were alot of bugs filed and many would have been really good candidates but no one submitted a bug id to the contest alias so I could not consider them. That's what the rules said...
Well, this means that I still have an iPod to give away and I do want to give it away. My current thinking is to give it away at JavaOne. We are in...

When validating form field entries using AJAX as described in the article Realtime Form Validation Using AJAX there are additional issues that come to mind. These include:
Do I have to validate a single form field? Not necessarily. The article was written to show the simplest use case. You could also do validation based on any combination of form data. You should not consider this solution...

While I was working on preparing slides for my session on TmaxDay 2006 (http://www.tmax.co.kr/tmaxday/), I came up with some idea of grouping and classifying Java web services technologies:
Java Web Services 1.0 (adopted by J2EE 1.4)
(Optional) EWS (JSR 109) 1.1
Java Web Services 2.0 (adopted by Java EE 5 and Java SE 6)
JAXP 1.3 + StAX 1.0 (= JAXP 1.4)

Here's an interview
that yours truly recently did with Bill Shannon that you might find interesting.
Bill's a Sun distinguished engineer and spec lead for Java Platform Enterprise Edition (Java EE).
He discusses how the Java EE 5 platform (formerly J2EE) makes life easier for developers. "There are so many ways we've made life simpler for developers, it's hard to know where to start," said...
