The beta for the Java EE 5 SDK is now available here and a set of tools that works with it is available here (the follow-up to J2EE 1.4 is Java EE 5, and that for J2SE 5.0 is Java SE 6 - the "2" is dropped and the "Java" is spelled out - it all makes sense but it can be confusing). Today's releases are a pretty big deal and there are already several blogs, discussions, technical papers, and...

I'm pleased to announce another revision of the Java EE Web Tier. In Jan Luehe's blog you can find out what's new in JSP 2.1 Proposed Final Draft 2 (PFD2). The Change Log for Servlet 2.5 will give you the scoop on the Servlet spec. This blog entry will show what's new in the JSF spec. In JSF, the most visible new feature since the last draft of the spec is the addition of the invokeOnComponent...

A colleague of mine entered our room a couple of days ago and asked me this: can he open a Swing frame from the application server in order to view the request that he got (a pretty big XML string)? Sounds strange, right? So many reasons not do this: What happens with this code in production? Why not use Eclipse debugger, copy the request to XMLSpy and view it there? Why not configure the log...

With traditional Action MVC frameworks (Struts), you have a specific set of scopes to store state in over transactions: request, session, and application. Often, while developing applications with Action MVC frameworks, you have to make a decision to store objects/state in the request or the session. There can be consequences to the the performance of your application in either case. You can...

Take a look at this blog by Ken Drachnik, who heads product management of Sun Java System Application Server at Sun. In clear terms, the blog explains the differences between Project GlassFish and Sun Java System Application Server. One can well picture the intense engineering in the background--all good stuff! I'm also coauthoring articles on GlassFish and will introduce them here as soon as...

With the help of Kohsuke Kawaguchi's most excellent maven plugin, and several iterations of trial and error, we now have the JSF 1.2 api and impl jars available under the same license as Glassfish on the maven repository. Put this in your or maven.repo.remote=,

I have been having a look at EJB 3.0 interceptors with Glassfish. EJB 3.0 allows you to define interceptor methods that are called around the business methods and lifecycle events on the bean instances. The interceptor methods can either be defined within the bean class or in separate interceptor classes. Interceptor definitions and binding interceptors to bean classes or specific methods within...

To make Sun Java System Application Server work with Object Reference Broker (ORB) software, all you need to do is revise a few server-side settings. A brand-new article that I cowrote with Sun engineer Sheetal Vartak, Configuring Sun Java System Application Server for Third-Party ORBs, steps you through the procedure and offers tips.As background on ORB, the Object Management Group has published...

It was pointed out to me on the ##jsf channel on that we didn't have a link to the source snapshot for the JSF 1.1_01 build. This has been fixed and I've updated our page to include a link to the 1.1_01 source released under the Java Research License.

In November I had the chance to speak with developers at the JavaOne Japan event on AJAX. In Japan, there is a strong interest in AJAX and from some conversations with developers and companies following the conference I realized that AJAX really is a global phenomenon. Last week I had the chance to speak at Apple with some of the developers from the Apple Store about AJAX and to my surprise I...

As announced by Jonas Jacobi in his blog, Oracle has donated portions of its ADF Faces component library to the MyFaces project. This library is JSF 1.1 based. I'm writing to let you know that, due to Oracle's participation in the JSF 1.2 expert group, these components have already been tested with Glassfish and run quite well under JSF 1.2. Furthermore, the MyFaces tomahawk components also...

In one my last blogs on the concepts behind Avatar involved trying to gain performance via AJAX by partially processing a UIComponent tree in JSF. I'd like to bring another possible idea up with JSF: what about treating all components as stateless? Not stateless as in Servlet-stateless, but stateless as in request scoped. As mentioned in the Avatar blog, component tree creation is dirt cheap (...

Courtesy of Karthik Rajeswaran of the Sun Java Studio Enterprise QA team-- Anyone who's encountering problems in running Web applications that are developed with JDK 1.5.0 characteristics (such as generics) on Apache Tomcat 5.5 should read a recent thread on the Sun Java Studio Enterprise forum. From there, you learn how to configure Sun Java Studio Enterprise 8 and Tomcat 5.5 to be compatible...
