NetBeans

 I feel a bit guilty saying bad things about Apache Ant. It's free, it's available everywhere, and a lot of volunteers have put a lot of work into making it what it is. You can very quickly and easily make a build file for simple Java projects. But. It seems to have been more accreted than designed, and if you try to use the core system to accomplish...

(I started cross-posting blogs to my own website.) I was working on Hudson yesterday which led me to develop this little tool called Bridge method injector. When you are writing a library, there are various restrictions about the kind of changes you can make, in order to maintain binary compatibility. One such restriction is an inability to restrict the return type. Say in v1 of your library...

I simply hate that "mvn eclipse:eclipse" does not generate project files for Maven projects that have POM packaging. Yes I know that I can simply create a Default Eclipse project on the folder but why do I have to do this action many time when the target is to avoid to repeat task? So I hacked into and "fixed" it. That was simple. What is not is to understand reason...

(I started cross-posting blogs to my own website.) I did a quick interview with DZone about my new company, InfraDNA, which they published on their website. Thank you DZone for the opportunity!

(I started cross-posting blogs to my own website.) As I wrote in my farewell note, I was working on starting a new company around Hudson. It took longer than I initially anticipated, but it's finally open for business! The company will provide two things; one is support, so that I can answer your questions and problem reports in a timely fashion, and the other is consulting, so that I can help...

(I started cross-posting blogs to my own website.) My project of the day (or "POTD") is GitHub API for Java — a library for accessing GitHub programmatically. As the Hudson community is embracing plugins developed in Git more and more, I needed to interact with GitHub as a part of the community infrastructure automation. I did a quick Google search to locate existing...

My project of the day (or "POTD") is Custom Access Modifier — an annotation and an enforcer that lets you define application-defined custom access modifiers, So let me explain this a bit more. Say you have a library that people use, and say you are thinking about deprecating one of the methods. Yes, you can just put @Deprecated, but that doesn't actually prevent people from...

If you are living in San Francisco bay area, or if you are visiting the area for EclipseCon next week, make sure to come to Hudson Hackathon this Friday 3/19 and/or Saturday 3/20. The plan is to meet up, hang out, chat, hack code, and have fun. If you are planning to attend, please RSVP by leaving your name on Wiki. We planned this for two days, so that people doing Hudson for work can come...

There are many things, mostly implementation-related, that can be blamed on Maven, but I think most people agree on the fact that the POM concept (a declarative model of your project) is a good thing. Among other things, it allows to run a new plugin often with a minimum of configuration, or no configuration at all. For instance, a few days ago I was pointed to the Clirr plugin, a tool that...

This is the first edition of a new column I'll be writing each weekend titled "java.net: the Week in Review." In the column, I'll present all of the previous week's Java Today news items, a selection of java.net blog posts, polls, and spotlights. I'll organize the presentation by categorizing the featured news items, so if, for example, your interest is JavaEE and GlassFish, you'll be...

For meanwhile more than 25 years I am writing computer programs. More than a decade I spent with programs accessing databases, virtually always relational ones. I soon learned that this is rather hard work. Not only that you need to know about the theory behind RDBMS iself, but also you need to know the technical APIs (like ODBC, ADO, RDO, JDBC, JDO, JPA, CMP, ...), the structure of...

Programming

My previous blog, presenting the Life program, was quite long, still not really complete. I've continued the work, but soon found some interesting surprises. This new blog starts investigating an API bug, then trips into some surprising language behavior, and ends in a proposal for a small change in the JavaFX Script language. A Slider bug I was annoyed to see that the Slider control ignores my...

  Learning GlassFish v3 Command Line Administration Interface (CLI) Terminals and consoles was one of the earliest types of communication interfaces between a system administrator and the system administration layer. Due to this long time presence,  command line administration consoles become one the most utilized administration channel for configuring different software ranging from database...

Modularity is the essential design and implementation consideration which every software architects and designers should have in mind to get an easy to develop, maintain and extend software. GlassFish is an application server which highly benefits from a modularity system to provide different level of functionalities for different deployment and case studies. GlassFish fully supports Java EE...

Mobility

Ian Bogost's recent article Flash is Not a Right highlights some new aspects of the debate about Apple's iPhoneOS development restrictions. I have a different opinion. I understand Ian's pain as a teacher. Programmers who aren't curious, don't like to explore varied languages and paradigms, are doomed to rank-and-file roles. But this is secondary. The purpose of computing is to serve the needs of...

Security

Manage, Administrate and Monitor GlassFish v3 using Application Server Management Extensions (AMX) & The Java Management Extensions (JMX) Management is one of the most crucial parts of an application server set of functionalities. Development of the application which we deploy into the server happens once with minor development iteration during the software lifecycle, but the management is...

Distributed

I am very fond of FindBugz (indeed it has found its way into the QA process of most projects I work on....). When visiting the site to check Eclispe 3.5.2 compatibility I found they were working on a new tool. Indeed a very interesting tool. Looks like they have a specific tool for browsing the output of a findbugz; and sifting through the results in order to mark each issue. They have an example...
