A Geeky Script to Speed up Your App Development

One of the things that became obvious fairly quickly when we released Magnolia 5 in summer 2013 was that most users, when creating custom apps, create so called Content Apps. In other words, and not so surprisingly, people still use Magnolia as a content management system.

JavaOne 2014 Day Zero Notes

Posted by edburns on September 28, 2014 at 5:39 PM PDT

I estimate that this is my 15th or 16th JavaOne. I started in 1998 or 1999 and missed 2003 due to the birth of my first son. Aside from that, I haven't missed one since. I consider myself very blessed to have taken a small part in such a long and fun ride.

MVC 1.0 JSR is on its way!

Posted by mriem on September 25, 2014 at 12:07 AM PDT

The ballot for MVC 1.0 has passed and we have approval. So now it is time to move forward with EG formation and from there it is off to work!

Since we are a new JSR we do not have all our infrastructure setup yet.

Please be patient we will get everything setup soon.

Note as I am attending JavaOne it might not happen until after JavaOne ;)

Enjoy!

Presenting at JavaOne 2014

Posted by mriem on September 22, 2014 at 7:08 AM PDT

Yes, it is actually happening, a bit late to the game but I am in full swing in preparing for JavaOne. You might wonder why a bit late. Well at the time of the call for papers for JavaOne the MVC JSR was still in a large state of flux. Since then a lot has happened, it is currently waiting for its final approval (yes the ballot closes Sept 22, 2014, which is today).
