My last blog entry about JSR-314-OPEN@JCP.ORG was over a year ago. This list is the official Expert Group (EG) mailing list on which the development of the JSR-314 specification (JSF 2.0) is discussed. The information on how to subscribe/unsubscribe to this list changed in June 2010, but I haven't updated any existing information or blogged any new information about it. This is the overdue...

He was a JUG Leader (Ceara at Brazil), Glassfish active user and speaker. See more information at the CEJUG blog Sorry to use this space, but I feel motivated to let the java.net community...

For meanwhile more than 25 years I am writing computer programs. More than a decade I spent with programs accessing databases, virtually always relational ones. I soon learned that this is rather hard work. Not only that you need to know about the theory behind RDBMS iself, but also you need to know the technical APIs (like ODBC, ADO, RDO, JDBC, JDO, JPA, CMP, ...), the structure of...

Is it still possible to ask this question in 2010? Isn’t the answer obvious ? Well no ! It was the question I was asking myself three years ago, even though I had been working as a consultant and Java trainer for seven years. In 2007, my ex-colleague Éric Marcoux (Oracle ACE Director) suggested I join JUG Québec (Canada). I said JUG ? Java User…What ?...

Deploying Maven artifacts using the java.net repository is always a challenge and most of the time the result is unpredictable...the good news is Sonatype's is opening it's Nexus OSS instance for all of the java.net project! All the projects I'm involved that needs to deploy on java.net maven repository are daily failling (many many times) with the not so nice exception: [...

For many years I am using XSLT now for a lot of tasks in both, development and runtime environments: Source generation, creating HTML from XML data, or even rendering SVG vector graphics from XML finance data. But what really bothered me was that the XSLT transformer contained in Java (even in Java 6's latest release) was just able to do XSLT 1.0 but not XSLT 2.0. XSLT (and XPath) 2.0 comes with...

Obrigado, my friends,  It is time for me to leave Sun/Oracle. Thanks, to all of the Java Champions, NetBeans Dream Teamers and JUG Leaders who have just been terrific over the last (5) years....You guys are "cool"! Stick together and maintain your connections with each other. See you on the other side... But, I probably won't be too far away  ;-)  JUGs/JC's support...

So finally, after endless nights, my new web site Head Crashing Informatics is finished. Learned a lot on XHTML and CSS by coding it completely by hand (yes, really, did not use any design tool, as I love to code and always want to see what's going on behind the scenes). In the future you'll find my latest stuff there, research results, code snippets, background information on my projects, and...

I love owls; they are so elegant and have a strong personality (too bad in so many years I've been unable to take photos at any of them!). Unfortunately in my culture (and probably many others) they have also got a bad reputation, as they were considered messengers of bad fortune. It's for this reason that in italian a "gufo" is also a person who, for innate attitude or purportedly,...

Is Go a Java replacement?  Of course not, but I do wonder what Google's up to: http://thoughtfulprogrammer.blogspot.com/2010/01/why-go-googles-very-on-programming.html
