Briefly, yesterday, we quietly debuted a feature that allowed you to submit your Java related events for listing in java.net . Thanks to those that submitted events. We're still polishing how best to present this feature. If you have any ideas, please respond in the talkback below.
Today's featured Weblog is Jack Shirazi's Java Case Studies. As Java has gotten more popular, it has also gotten more invisible - especially in enterprise applications. Jack Shirazi lists about a dozen case studies that he has analyzed to see "what worked; and sometimes, more importantly, what didn't work."
In the Also Today section, we link to the early access release of the Java compiler that is the Prototype for JSR014: Adding Generics to the Java (TM) Programming Language. This prototype adds some new features not covered in the JSR. Play with it and provide feedback. Before launching java.net we were trying to understand what would be meant by communities on this site. Every list included the Java gaming community. Take a look at the pictures and story from FragFest - 2003 and you can see why. They have a lot of fun. The story also details how you can join them this November for a holiday FragFest.
Steve Mallett, the Java Today news editor has gathered the following
