J2EE

Note this blog is obsolete, see https://www.manorrock.com/blog/ for the current blog Tyrus 1.3 has been released, get more information here. Or download it from here. Glassfish users should take all the Tyrus JAR files and replace them in the modules directory with the downloaded ones to get Tyrus 1.3 working in Glassfish. And that is it. Enjoy!

I will be presenting the following sessions at Silicon Valley Code Camp 2013. For those in the Bay Area, Silicon Valley Code Camp is on Oct 5,6 2013 in Foothill College, Los Altos. It is a very well organized conference by the developers for the developers. This year has 232 sessions and 4500 registrations and am always amazed at the way Peter Kellner and his team pull this off! These are my...

Education

Introduction Configuration of an actor system affects the way in which the Akka actor libraries and microkernel interact with actors. The visibility of a configuration is limited to the specific actor system with which the configuration has been associated. The effective configuration for any given actor system is a merger of three sources. In Fig. 1 below the precedence of...

Introduction This week I am presenting a coding of a simple two actor application designed to show actor creation, message passing, and actor termination. This application is called the "Fortune Cookie Application". It is the next state of the art beyond the HelloWorld program. Despite its simplicity this application shows the elements that every actor application uses. What We Will Be...

Databases

Note this blog is obsolete, see https://www.manorrock.com/blog/ for the current blog If you are having a problem with your JPA queries and you are trying to understand what SQL queries it actually sends below the covers you can configure the JPA runtime to show the actual SQL statements it sends over.

J2SE

Much of what you do in Java is to define classes that package data and functionality together by concept to represent the desired problem-space element. When you instantiate a class, you create an object that has it's own piece of memory made up of other objects. Java has a peculiar means of manipulating these elements in memory. This is to say even though you treat everything as an object, you...

Business

a little discussion in a television series here that i am the speaker. the topic is Java. The host, TV Excelence, said any update for Java and why Java is silence now.

NetBeans

At JavaOne 2013, I had the privilege of speaking for 10-15 minutes with Sean Phillips, Senior Software Engineer at a.i. solutions. a.i. solutions was a JavaOne 2013 Duke's Choice Award winner, and Sean had come to the Java.net table in the JavaOne Exhibition Hall seeking me. This was fortuitous, because among all of this year's Duke's Choice Award winners, the one that's closest in its...

Programming

Each of these objects can be described in terms of the classes or types to which they belong for instance a maple tree belongs to the class of tree or is a type of tree, a bicycle is a type of cycle, a car is a type of vehicle. OOP is thus a very powerful language abstraction that allows you to simplify the complexity of a problem while retaining its value. Java is an Object Oriented...

Exciting information technologies emerge from new discoveries and re-emerge from past discoveries at a rapid rate. Despite the glamor and curiosity appeal engendered by cutting edge technologies when they debut, after the hype fades and we look at what actually is there in the cold light of reason we find ourselves turning to our pragmatic side and asking: “Ok, but what advantages do we...

Web Applications

I’ve been talking about JSF 2.2 new features out on the conference trail for quite a while now. I usually talk about the big three: Flows, Resource Library Contracts, and HTML5 Friendly Markup. This blog entry talks about another, mostly behind-the-scenes, feature: ClientWindow. I introduce the concept of ClientWindow and give a simple example illustrating one solution to a common web...

JavaOne

Unlike some recent JavaOnes, JavaOne 2013 was more about maintaining Java's momentum in multiple directions than specific major announcements. Just before JavaOne started, we ran a Java.net poll that asked developers to predict what category of JavaOne 2013 announcement will have the broadest impact. A total of 274 votes were cast in the poll, which ran for two weeks including the entirety of...

My JavaOne 2013: Wrapup This blog entry summarizes my session participation at JavaOne 2013. I plan to update this entry with links to the content on Parleys.com as it becomes available. Sessions I Attended In general, speaking more than listening is a very bad way to live. I find this holds true at conferences as well. Here are the sessions I attended. I attended eight and presented six, so I...
