Hey, stupid, are you trying to say your company is worthless?
Revisiting the major wireless developments of March 2004
My recent host provider issues made me realize that I am running a profitable website, and that perhaps others can benefit from knowing about mistakes and successes I've made, to get their own site successful and profitable. So I've decided to write a series on the site. This, the first article in the series, explains why I started the site.
Trade shows are a waste of time and money, right? Maybe not.
Creating a new, standard language for the Java Platform
A list of ten major, difficult areas of innovation the technology world could use to help break out of the doldrums. Of interest to pundits, entrepreneurs, and anyone interested in creating the next big thing...
Hey everybody, last week we had a very interesting paper published with lots of information about the use of JAVA and XML in the Brazilian National Health Card Project. This project was awarded last year in the JavaOne with the Duke's Choice for Massive Scale Award. In the paper you will see how JAVA and XML were used and lots of pices of code.
Eweek is claiming that Sun is going to meet with IBM to chat about open-sourcing Java.
IBM's Rod Smith wrote an open letter to Sun's Rob Gingell urging Sun to open-source Java.

We all know the feeling of post conference-idous, when you need to decompress from all of the exciting things you learned about and figure out what was real and what was just flat out cool. After attending ETech, I thought, why decompress when we can just continue transforming our minds.

Jonathan Schwartz's recent article has many Java developers shaking their heads in disgust -- but I think his views (and Sun's software strategy) has many CIO's and this Java developer shaking their heads in a different direction.
A case study of the trailblazing JSR 166 specification development process.
Valentine and impending doom, when in the same sentence, are redundant. Perhaps the following lines from John Donne(1572 to 1631) might be of somehelp to the needy.
What's right and wrong with EJB today? It's about time someone asked for your opinion, don't you think?
Recently, a fellow Minneapolitan wrote me and asked about the future of the American programmer. I'm a far cry from the Delphic Oracle, but I gave it a shot anyhow.
Extreme Programming was developed from the concept that if a practice is good (such as testing) then doing it all the time (Test Driven Development) is better. My focus is on decoupling, which tells us that we should separate out pieces of code that should change independently. Packages and visibility are ways that Java enforces decoupling. If we agree that decoupling in our code is good then decoupling our code from the technology that we wrap it in for delivery is better. Let’s call it Extreme Decoupling.
