Google maps was a useful hit from the moment it went on line. Since then thousands of web pages have added map capability to their sites, courtesy of Google. Let me illustrate how you can add Google maps to your Java application.

Yet there is a small, but rather vocal community, who wish to espouse that distributed object RPC is somehow flawed, and that 'messaging' is a...

I guess that means I should start:
I sincerely hope you find what you are looking for Bruce. It would be an amazing discovery for sure:
Now people can develop sophisticated solutions, with little effort, time, skill, or even knowledge!
It is a Holy Grail; and to be sure, you are not the only one questing for it. It has been quested for ages actually, harking back to the dawn of computers....

The cajo project is a small free framework defined to simply and easily realize this vision. Its reception by the java.net community has been both strong and positive. So in response to this, I thought it would be...
