This a rather long article covering OpenESB (Open ESB) administration and management along with discussing a complete sample application shows how to develop solutions based on OpenESB
There is an unwritten tradition that Hector Conway's Game of Life must be implemented in every programming language and every GUI toolkit. Well, OK I just invented this tradition, but it's a smart introduction and Life is one of the easiest games / cool animations you can program. But it's not too simple that we can't learn a few important things about JavaFX...

moving to wordpress and posting about changes to layout in JavaFX 1.3.
JavaFX 1.3, codename SoMa, was released at long last on April 22 - after some delays (originally due November 2009) and feature cuts (the new Prism toolkit has shipped but in EA status). In this blog I will explore the performance improvements of JavaFX's graphics stack, including Prism. Just take a cup of coffee to ride this blog - it's long, seven miles.
<p>This article is about JMath, a Java API for doing serious math.</p>
If you wonder whether the style of use with JDBC API has an impact of performance, you might like to read my latest blog entry on Head Crashing Informatics. While the entry mostly is about tuning SQL Anywhere's BLOB handling performance, it contains an interesting aspect: There are three ways to deal with BLOBs in JDBC, and the performance difference is tremendous. While obvious for the JDBC...
This article shows how we can use Spring Secirity and Spring remoting together to create a Spring Service in a Web application, secure it using Spring Security and later on invoke it from a Java SE application.
On his home site, Jeff Friesen, author of 21 java.net articles, has posted an interesting little article titled Comic Books and Java. In the article, Jeff presents a Java application that reads and displays digitized comic books. In the article, Jeff explains the standard format in which comic books are digitized (a .cbz zipped file and a .cbr RAR archive file). Jeff then walks through his...
The 2010 Vancouver Olympics web site includes a nice little JavaFX Olympics events schedule application that's quite useful for people who like following almost every Olympic sport. Actually, I suppose it's useful even if you follow only a few sports.
The application shows you events that are currently in progress or which will start in the next several hours. Clicking on an event link launches...
You think that with Unicode
™ the stone age is over and your Java software will print even egyptic hieroglyphs? Dream on!
Like to use XSLT 2.0 but fear to switch to SAXON? Just drop saxon9he.jar into JRE's lib/ext folder and you're done! NO FEAR, IT WILL WORK.
Lots of people have opined on Apple's iPad, many deriding it's closed nature and lack of features. The thing is, those problems don't matter to most people. The iPad isn't for you or me. It's for everyone else. I've spent the last 20 year hoping we would have the technology to build such a device, even though I knew it was a device I would not personally use. But that doesn't matter..
Last week Apple released their latest product destined to change the world (the iPad). At least that's what they want us to believe. Perhaps the biggest controversy over the thing is the lack of Flash capability. However this being java.net I have to wonder out loud, where is Java capability, and more importantly why isn't as much controversy being raised over Java being missing? But I think we all can enumerate some reasons for both being missing. And it's worth it for the Java community to ponder this issue.
In my famous company innoQ I currently have the opportunity to work on a real cool tool: Bundle-Bee. It claims to be able to take any OSGi bundle and distribute the computational load to an ad-hoc grid (e.g. all machines in an office) without special setup or configuration.
We just released version 0.5.3 which is still very restricted and far from feature complete - we don't even...
Apache Pivot graduates to top-level Apache project
It's time for me to move on...
You might be wondering where I've been the past few months. JavaFX and Java Store work has definitely heated up, which has taken up the bulk of my time. I've also been working on Project Maitai, a tool for reactive visual artwork, as well as traveling to Sweden to speak at OreDev.
Now that the Oracle acquisition has received approval (or at least been approved to receive approval), I'm hoping...
