It was almost exactly two years ago that I first sat in a room with Dick Gabriel and others and heard his vision for java.net. There was a notion of a creative community that worked together on projects in communities that he laid out in the original java.net vision saying you can "think of creativity as an individual talent, but communities can be creative, too. And the sorts of things a community can build are considerably larger than those an individual can. There are many examples. Cathedrals in the Middle Ages were built by a long-lived community of builders, artisans, carpenters, sculptors, stone cutters, woodcutters, ceramics makers, glass makers, painters, and ordinary people working as laborers, based on a model created by an architect perhaps decades earlier, but inspired by a common vision of what that cathedral will be."
In Also in Java Today , The ACM has awarded "Richard Gabriel of Sun Microsystems - the ACM/AAAI Allen Newell Award for his role in shaping the growth and impact of object technology, and his influence in developing a software design community that cares about clear communication of ideas. A published poet and musician, Gabriel conceived of java.net as a self-creating and self-governed web place where communities join to build a city of diverse interests engaged in using the Java language and technology in routine and innovative ways. The Newell Award recognizes career contributions that have breadth within computer science, or that bridge computer science and other disciplines."
In other features, you can create a Window without anything on it at all - no title bar, no frame around it, no adornments. In Customizing Window Adornments John Zukowski shows how to add these elements to a JFrame and how to customize these various adornments.

Weblogs . In Hola , Chet writes " There's an interview with me posted at http://javahispano.org with random thoughts on 2D, Swing, Games, and Performance. "
Scott Schram reports from EclipseCon that " The Eclipse BIRT (Business Intelligence and Reporting Tools) project demonstrated their first milestone release at EclipseCon today." Tom Marrs reports on JBoss World Conference - Day 2 .
In Projects and
Communities , the Hudson project from the Java Tools Community monitors execution of repeated jobs, making it ideal for building software projects continuously, or to monitor the execution of externally-run jobs, such as those launched by
The Genesis project uses Hibernate, AspectWerkz, Thinlet, Jakarta Commons and other open source projects to simplify client-server and desktop application development by providing an environment that is both scalable and testable.
