I blogged a couple of years ago that Sun just didn't understand what their customers want, with the specific example of looking for Java support that I was expecting to pay for. Well, now that support is available at http://developers.sun.com/services/expertassistance/ . It's resonably priced - well actually its dead cheap if you do any decent amount of Java development. And I wasn't even...

I was looking for Sun Java support - paid support, not the freebie "stick your bug in the db, vote for it and if enough people vote we might do something about it" support. I was looking for something serious - "I pay you, you fix the damn problem or tell me a valid workaround that you support" type of support. And the sort of bugs my customer's get aren't "whoops we didn't define hashcode() when...

I generate my website using a local servlet container and JSP pages converting text source to html pages, then I upload all the pages to the server. Inspired by reading Cleaning Your Web Pages with HTML Tidy, I decided it was about time I had my HTML validated. But I wanted to do it as an integral part of the build process, not as an afterthought. That way, if HTML errors crept in to the pages...

This series is about how I turned my site from a hobby site to one that is a business. I hope to distill a series of practical suggestions that will help you get your website profitable. You may find everything I have to say completely obvious, certainly I do now having done it all! But maybe some of you will find this series helpful. In the first part, "The Beginning" I explained why I started...

I go to the occassional meeting or trade show where vendors are displaying their wares. I look at what interests me, and sometimes give feedback to the vendors when I have appropriate expertise. Some are interested in my suggestions, some aren't. Not so long ago, I was being given a demo by two guys about their company's leading product. "What features do you have that your competitors don't?"...

A Book I didn't intend to run a website to make money. Back in late 2000, the dot boom had already turned to dot bust, people were already being layed off left and right, and it was clear that websites, B2B, B2C, ... were no longer the "in thing". If you hadn't raised money for a web venture, then you weren't going to, at least not for a few years when the VC [venture capital] doors might start...

I love looking through case studies. They can teach you so much about what to do, what not to do, what is in vogue, etc. All those useful design patterns came from analyzing lots of case studies and seeing what worked; and sometimes, more importantly, what didn't work. So this year I decided to start listing case studies when I find them. And a great place to start is JavaOne, where lots of the...
