  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...

In the past few month several Java EE 6 related JSRs (Java Specification Requests) have been finalized. The final ballot for them ended on November 30 and all were approved. Today, December 10, 2009, Java EE 6 and GlassFish v3, THE reference implementation of Java EE6, are released. Four and a half year after the release of Java EE 5 we enter the next Java EE era. GlassFish v3 is the first...

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...

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...

(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...

I've finally managed to produce the Windows installer for Hudson, as originally raised by Håkan Reis. Please try it out and let me know how it works. This one took much longer than the installer for any other platforms, and while I normally think of Microsoft technologies very highly, Windows installers and WiX are a real disappointment. For example, you write the description of the...

Given that Maven is much more complex than Ant, and it dinamically resolves dependencies, people are right to be concerned with having deterministic builds. But the vast majority of problems are solved by just three good practices: version everything, including all Maven plugins run once in a while mvn dependency:go-offline, that will download all the required stuff routinely use mvn -o (offline...

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...

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...

NetBeans

I recently got pointed to that link: http://java.dzone.com/news/ant-18-scanning-leaves-171 I read the news with some pleasure reminding me that I still like Ant based builds very much over Maven in many cases. Of course there are a lot of well maintained projects on the web that work very well with Maven. You never know how many enthusiasts-hours have been spent to make that happen. However, in...

I was going through the documentation of Spring Roo, version 1.0.1 while preparing a talk for JDC 2010 about the Spring Roo .. No need to mention the Roo is awesome, amazing and not Magic :-) Ben Alex , Stefan Schmidt did a great job really in this project. Smart architecture! "The automated startup-time scan is also very useful as you upgrade to newer versions of Roo. Often a new...
