Over on my timboudreau.com blog - how I learned to stop worrying and love Maven.

Imagine if, for example, the hypervisors that run EC2 were compromised - imagine almost every business you deal with online compromised, all at once. This is the never-talked-about problem with the cloud - over on my timboudreau.com blog.

Web Development Tools

Bunyan is a NodeJS library that rethinks logging in some really useful ways. I wrote a Java port you can use in your applications. In particular, with Bunyan, logs are JSON - and Bunyan comes with a great filtering and analysis tool. The Java port uses some innovative techniques to make logging simple and foolproof - in particular, a use of AutoCloseable to make a logging code simple and...

Ajax

I had the pleasure to review JavaServer Faces: Introduction by Example by Josh Juneau which has been published by Apress in December 2014. The highlight of the book was the simplicity with which Josh has covered some of the most complicated topics related to JavaServer Faces (JSF). I like how smoothly and seamlessly he can transition from the simple recipes to the more involved and detailed...

Why you should write small libraries that do one thing well, over on my real blog at timboudreau.com A response to Eran Hammer's The Fallacy of Tiny Modules.

This is the Voice of Ground Control! NASA Ground Systems and Java Technology I am Sean Phillips and have been a software engineer for a while now.  For the last few years I've been lucky enough to be a lead developer for some NASA Ground System software that has been deployed directly into the Mission Operations Control room.  (Hence the righteous reference in the title of this blog)...

At the JavaOne 2013 Java Technical Keynote, there was a series of demos of software that enables two people to play chess, using some of Java's latest features, including Java EE 7 Websockets, many variations of Java 8 (recent weekly builds), Lambda Expressions, Java ME, Embedded Java, ... It was an impressive demo of many of Java's recently-released and not-yet-finally-released capabilities,...

I chatted briefly with consultant Anton Epple (@monacotoni) at JavaOne 2012 on the topic "Java/JVM technologies and your involvement in them": Kevin: What's great that's happened recently? Anton: JavaFX Canvas and NetBeans Project EASEL Kevin: What are you working on right now that's exciting? Anton: Angry Nerds for JavaFX Kevin: Some months from now I hope/plan to: Anton: Release a nice...

NetBeans

Tired of JavaFX Scene Builder being run in a separate process? Fed up with no real integration between your favorite IDE and JavaFX Scene Builder? There may be a solution heading towards you. Follow this small series of blog entries to join me on my journey towards an embedded JavaFX Scene Builder in NetBeans. Welcome back (you did read the first three parts of this series?)! Ok, having done a...

At JavaOne 2013, I had the privilege of speaking for 10-15 minutes with Sean Phillips, Senior Software Engineer at a.i. solutions. a.i. solutions was a JavaOne 2013 Duke's Choice Award winner, and Sean had come to the Java.net table in the JavaOne Exhibition Hall seeking me. This was fortuitous, because among all of this year's Duke's Choice Award winners, the one that's closest in its...

GUI

Recently I have come upon a blog article which discussed why Swing has to be Deprecated.  My understanding of the author's argument was that since Swing looks ugly compared to HTML5 and nobody uses Swing anymore that it should be deprecated in favor of JavaFX.  The theory was that by deprecating Swing and forcing users to upgrade to JavaFX then all Java GUIs will be better with the...

In the previous post in this mini-series regarding the work I do on NASA Ground Systems, I showed some screenshots demonstrating data visualization.  The basic tech stack involves combining the NetBeans Platform with custom JavaFX views. This pattern provides some very useful "At-a-Glance" (AoG) displays associated with daily data product generation. AoG is typically appropriate, especially...

So you need to build a visualization of data that must loaded and interface dynamically.  Good looks are important so you chose JavaFX but you are starting from an existing Swing based application.  No problem right?  But what if you have a lot of data to load into your Scene? How do you maintain a positive User Experience? Maybe you are using the NetBeans Platform because... well...

As I get closer to deploying our 4th Operational Release of the Duke's Choice award winning GEONS Ground System Software I'm combining the NetBeans Platform with custom JavaFX views. This pattern provides some very useful "At-a-Glance" displays associated with daily data product generation. I'm fortunate to have access to quite a bit of complex and timely data much of which is custom to the...

Visual Library is a library in NetBeans, which you can use in standalone Java apps, for doing beautiful, complex, animated layouts. JUNG is a library for exploring graphs of connected data. What if we put those two things together? That's what I did. The result is on GitHub. Video demo and more info over on my timboudreau.com blog.

Community

Looking Forward to JavaOne Sunday: JUG Forums, NetBeans Day, GlassFish, Technical Keynotes, Duke's Choice Awards It used to be that Sunday was a fairly relaxing day for most. Not anymore! This year, Sunday is already overcrowded with many more events and sessions than one can possibly attend, as the JavaOne 2013 Content Catalog Sunday entries demonstrate. Sunday's activity can be divided into...

Swing

Creating a JavaFX 2 (or should I say FX8) application can be a time consuming task. We all got used to powerful frameworks helping us creating such applications based on Swing (NetBeans Platform) or SWT (Eclipse). There even was an attempt at getting this standardized in Java for Swing - JAF anyone? So where is such an application framework based on JavaFX 2/8, which leverages all the nice...
