My last java.net blog was back in April... I really don't have anything Java relevent to share, just making sure that my java.net account doesn't go dormant.
I'm now based in Santa Fe New Mexico instead of Austin Texas. If you know of any interesting groups or events in the area, please let me know.

The Oracle Sun take-over stirred a lot of controversy about the future of the Java platform. It is no secret that Oracle’s main goal behind the merger is access to Sun’s hardware technology.

Well, everyone used to freelance for some time and some people freelance for their entire working life. An integral part of freelancing is interacting with customers and keeping track of projects, tasks, and services related to each customer.
A freelancer can start with Excel sheets to keep track of working hour spent on a task in a project and finally calculate how much the client should pay for...

It is always said that competition between different producer and companies producing similar products is good for the end users and consumer of those products because the each company tried to provide better products to satisfy the consumer and finally receive more income.
All of the above are true when we are discussing commercial entities which produce the products, for example ORACLE and IBM...

Due to the recent availability problem in java.net, I've set up Subversion mirrors for Hudson and various GlassFish related projects at http://svn-mirror.glassfish.org/
If you are checking out source code for builds (such as through Hudson :-), or otherwise just need to look at the code, please feel free to use this repository. If you have existing workspaces of these repositories, you may switch...

So it has began ... the first Magnolia Conference ever. And as a good omen, the conference planned for up to 80 participants is completely sold out. Considering the credit crunch and everybody trying to save a money, this seems as a very good sign of the attention the product commands.
The 15 speakers will try to get attention of participants in 2 parallel tracks. The conference was preceded by a...

The Mobility Platform team has been working on a number of new features and enhancements since the release of GlassFish Mobility Platform v1.1 in February 2009. One of those features is the ability to run the Mobility Platform software on top of Glassfish ESB. There is a clear synergy between the Mobility Platform and Glassfish ESB. The former is about mobilizing the enterprise, while the latter...

I'll be leaving the bay area on Monday to give a talk about Hudson in JavaZone 2009. The talk will include both the general introduction of Hudson, as well as some of the advanced topics. Europe has a lot of Hudson adoptions (possibly better than in the U.S.), so I'm hoping to meet with many of Hudson users and developers there.
I'll be back next Friday. I was hoping to take a few days off in...

For the last few years, java.net portal is supporting for free my blogs and my projects. I am very thankful for SUN and Collabnet for this excellent resource, and I am pretty sure all people involved in the migration are aware about the importance of java.net in the Java community.
So: good luck for the ones upgrading the software and see you on the next week :) I will prepare some special entry...

Winter time in Porto Alegre, nice time for a long chimarrÃ£o with my family and also a good time to finally met some of my virtual friends from the RSJUG - one of the oldest and most active JUGs in Brazil.
The Java agenda of my holidays in Brazil started with a brief visit to DATACOM - a leading telecom solutions provider. After a brief talk with the DATACOM Java developers I brought them a...
