Last week, I sent a code review request to the Mojarra dev list. As you can see, no-one responded, but when a good friend and longtime Mojarra comitter (the winner of this contest) popped into the JSF IRC chat room, I asked him to review the changebundle.
We played IM tag for a while and when he finally caught me he brought a potential issue to my attention. The issue hinges on the answer to...

We are making progress on the next release of Leonardo, an open source desktop Java drawing program. One of the key features scheduled for the next release is a webservice that lets users save and share reusable symbols they've created. For example, someone could create a set of GWT mockup widgets, then share this set with others.
The challenge I face is that I'm mainly a client side developer....

There are times in career when you get excited about having an experience for the first time. I well remember how I got excited about seeing my first self-coded shell node popping up in the Windows Explorer (a.k.a custom shell namespace). A bit of excitement I noticed seeing my first reader's comment printed in iX. And I was really excited about receiving my first printed articles in...

So, Aaron is now blogging for Adobe at the "Community Kitchen" blog site with the other Adobe Community Mgrs. It has been over 6+ months now since making the transition from Sun to my new community. But, it is still all about developers and "creatives" doing cool stuff on the web, mobile, and multi-screen.
Two weeks ago I attended my FIRST AdobeMAX...

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.
Google furnishes its maps via a simple REST request. Does this mean you need to add some fancy REST framework to your application? Not at all! Java provides...

It seems that when we develop a trait (that includes both abstract and concrete methods) in Scala and compile it, the outcome includes two jave byte code files. The first includes the definition of an interface with an identical name to the one we gave our trait. The abstract methods that interface includes are the same methods defined in our trait. The other file includes the definition of a...

The new forums are looking good. We've been doing quite a bit of testing internally, and we didn't find any showstoppers last week, but we also didn't have very many people come try them out, so we decided to delay the launch for a week to try to get more testing in. If you're interested in spending half an hour trying out the new forums, please send me an email at communitymanager@...

I have recently finished teaching a Java EE course in Tsofen. Tsofen is a non profit organization that provides professional training courses in advance software development areas (such as .NET and Java EE) to arabs and druzes who live in Israel and assist them with finding a job in israeli high tech companies. The cruel reality during the years has led to discrepancy and to an abnormal situation...
