Based on the success of Log4J Sun for sure had to go ahead and add its own version of it as JDK logging making our life miserable. I was complaining a lot about that at the LA-JUG but today it...

Ditching the Keynote session at JavaOne I am sitting in the Alumni room and trying to get my head around the OpenJDK. Having a MacBook Pro I cannot download the JDK and build it on my Mac...

I just had a nice discussion with John Clingan, product manager on Glassfish, about EJB3 and Glassfish in particular. One of the thing that strikes me...

It is six years since my last trip to San Francisco to attend JavaOne and boy has my agenda changed since them. Back then I was working on JBoss and there was a huge fight between Sun and the...

I am delighted that Sun finally decided to make Java open-source and to harvest the ingenuity of developers around the world. In a few days or months the Java source code of the JDK should be...

After quite some screaming and kicking (see href="http://weblogs.java.net/blog/schaefa/archive/2006/03/jdk_community_d_1.html">my

Tuesday, 6th of December 2005 I had the chance to attend
Carlos Sanchez's presentation about Maven 2 at the LA JUG in El
Segundo. I already played around with Maven 2 and therefore had...

This week I created a test suite for a project I am currently
working on and a coworker wanted to run the same tests but no matter
what we did defining the junit task in the Ant build...

After complaining about shortcomings in the Java JDK for some
time I took the opportunity to actually try to fix one of the problems
is encountered and send a patch to Sun.

I had the chance to test the Rules Engine Drools and even
tough I like it I concluded that Drools did not perform as we had
expected. The main reason to drop Drools where that the...

Yes, I have to admit I do not use patterns and I hardly know any of them. Seven years ago I bought the book "Patterns in Java" and looked at it only to find out that most of them I already knew...

After the magical dust of JavaOne has settled the reality is reappearing and we can start thinking about the results. Especially Sun's announcement (beside buying my current employer) of open-...
