There are a great many sessions at JavaOne 2013 that feature JavaFX. But only one of them dared people to attend the session. That session would be "No Guts, No Glory! A Deep Dive into the Internals of JavaFX [BOF5802]", presented by Steve Northover, Kevin Rushforth, and Richard Bair (all of Oracle). At first, I was wondering if the challenge would mean I'd arrive at the session, only to find...
I'm sure there's a cleaner way to do this, but agility dictates I just need to get it done. This blog entry shares a little tip I uncovered while re-activing the

Continous Integration is important, will Java.net become the platform for this?
In the previous installment of Effective Architecture, I covered TDD with Model-View-Presenter. However the code I presented had synchronous server calls. In JavaFX (like Swing), the UI code runs in the Event Dispatch Thread (EDT). It is unwise to block the EDT. Hence it is encouraged to execute all server calls on a separate thread.
Swing provides SwingWorker to execute tasks off the...
I assert that projects that have agressive schedules with clearly defined priorities combined with a lean team to meet that schedule will tend to generate software ghettos.
Ed is trying a new time management scheme: The Pomodoro Technique.
How a chair changed our extreme programming.
Imagine you get to an organization that has several applications accounting for more than 800,000 lines of code. There are defects everywhere, releases after releases, lots of developers cranking code, after every release more defects... how do you stop the spiral?
Ever stop to think how we do software? When analyzing the real world, people start with existing phenomena, then derive one or more models that describe it - each is an abstraction of one or more physical phenomenon. Occasionally someone starts with an intuition about how something ought to work, and it comes up correct. In software development, we start with the abstractions and the real world emerges. Is that a thing human beings have a lot of practice at?
Naive approaches to data placement in a grid can lead to immediates failures or extreme thrashing at system startup. This article discusses how ObjectGrid solves this problem.
The last ScrumGathering was held in Portland, OR, May 7-11.
On Tuesday, Mike Cohn and I taught a course centered around a series of case studies. Wednesday and Thursday were Open Space sessions.
The overall site for the Gathering is here". This is the result of a session on Games for Scrum, along with a particular planning game, AgileTripTik.
I saw three themes:

In 1996, a group that I was working with devised a development process which we called Defect Driven Design, otherwise known as D3 (D-Cubed). We were a bit disappointed by not surprised that D3 never really caught on but just recently I saw a glimmer of hope for a revival.
A simple demo of the Spring and mybatis integration
Last week's kickoff of FESI's research program went very well. There are a number of folks (>500) who are now following this blog on Java.net, and a number who have gotten involved. While we wait for more folks, we'll be researching new technologies, the first being NOSQL databases.
If the kind of topics we're research interests you, please feel free to join the project;...
During Jazoon 2010 I had the chance to chat with many people about Scrum and this motivates me to look around and check scrum.org website and found this quate on the guide
