On the road again. Thursday night I attended GreenJUG in Greenville, South Carolina to see Arun Gupta's EE6 presentation. I've known Arun for a while now, but I've always been working a booth or doing Java.net business while he was speaking, so this is my first time seeing him in action.
He started with a quick review of the history of Java releases and what the "themes" were for each. Then he...

It's hard to know the exact numbers, but I'll venture a guess that well over half of the JSF sites that exist in the world are running Oracle's Mojarra implementation of the JSF spec. Did you know that this implemention is the first large part of JavaEE (then J2EE) to be open-sourced, way back in 2004? As with any decent open source project, we have public continuous integration, a public...

About three weeks ago, I called for the community to submit entries for a contest to design a logo for the JSF specification. Sixteen different individuals submitted 32 entries. Thank you very much for contributing!
Per the recommendation of Arun Gupta and Imre Oßwald, I used a web voting platform to determine the winner, and here it is.
I would have uploaded it to the Official Homepage...

API JavaDocs are at http://embedded-glassfish.java.net/nonav/apidocs/

We're almost done! The vast majority of projects that have requested to move have gone live on the new site. We've been working to lock down the rest of them and expect that to be done in the next day or two.
The content management system (editorial, wiki, forums, blogs) will go dark some time on Friday, and will stay down through the weekend while we move the bits to our...

This week, Oracle officially nominated SouJava for an Executive Commitee seat on the Java Community Process (JCP), to each I have been indicated as the group's representative. Since then, I have received many e-mails, and started writing this lines several times but couldn't get too far... There is no simple messaging in regards to the JCP those days, and to even start, it means touching...

My personal site is being updated... Or actually, redone... I wanted to do this for some time, the new domain exists for over a year. The old site was really outdated. The design was copied in the past century from the Sun intranet site, the graphics came from a friend that is today an acclaimed designer, but at the time was still learning. The site used a series of Velocity templates...

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...
