I estimate that this is my 15th or 16th JavaOne. I started in 1998 or 1999 and missed 2003 due to the birth of my first son. Aside from that, I haven't missed one since. I consider myself very blessed to have taken a small part in such a long and fun ride. To add blessing on top of blessing, this is the fourh JavaOne at which I have had the honor to teach a class at Java University. My good...

My JavaOne 2013: Wrapup

Sessions I Attended
In general, speaking more than listening is a very bad way to live. I find this holds true at conferences as well. Here are the sessions I attended. I attended eight and presented six, so I...

My last blog
entry about JSR-314-OPEN@JCP.ORG was over a year ago. This list is the official Expert Group (EG) mailing list on which the development of the JSR-314 specification (JSF 2.0) is discussed. The
information on how to subscribe/unsubscribe to this list changed in June
2010, but I haven't updated any existing information or blogged any new
information about it. This is the overdue...

I'm trying to provide transparency into Mojarra development practices and increase Mojarra code quality. To that end, this blog entry summarizes the current state of the Hudson jobs for Mojarra.
Continuous integration is the layer of the software safety net that ties together the other two layers: version control mastery and a comprehensive automated test library. Mojarra has been developed...

The original Pragmatic Programmers, Andy Hunt and Dave Thomas, talk about the tragedy of the software ghetto in this 2003 interview with Bill Venners. We all know the story of how unfixed broken windows can cause a nice neighborhood to start looking like a ghetto, and how this analogy is applied to an enterprise software project. While working through my email today, I came across a management...

I've known about fleXive since JSF
Days 2009, when I met its lead engineer, Daniel
Lichtenberger. At the time, we were trying to get them into the
GlassFish partner program, but due to lack of resources, this didn't pan

JAX-2010, they had a booth. It's great technology, and I encourage you
to check it out.
