Once again the FUD around Solaris and OpenSolaris fate started to spread after Dana Blankenhorn miss understood the licensing terms and used a eye catching and visitor increasing title, Oracle taking back OpenSolaris, for his blog entry. Well, from this article we can get that even the veteran writers can get things wrong and spread incorrect news :-)
My mailbox aggregates several Java User Groups and other specialized sources of information about the Java universe, with special guests like CEJUG and the Java EE community. Many of these Java sources are used by consultant companies to hire smart people, and since last year I am reading a desperate growing interest about skilled Java developers. More: few days ago I was having a coffee with...
In some point in time each freelance starts looking for a good software to manage the time he spent for different projects and different customer. In this entry I am sharing my experience with this task.
10 years to develop integrated program from highschool to sofware engineering undergraduate, to bring Indonesia get benefit of the Java-economic prospectus.
We have successfully create the stacks to bring a good Java expert to the market, we start teach Java from first year from vocational highschool to thesis of master degree in University Gunadarma.
Now we need all of you to evaluate our program, and give us feedback, if the program is good, extravaganza, superb, or we need to revises.
Hundreds thousands student's future depend of your feedback and support of this program, and we can help poor-uneducate-smart to get better live equally in this unfair world.
How often have I read about cool new technologies where, after all, the programmer can now 'fully concentrate on the business logic'.
This meanwhile happens since at least 20 years so I wonder why still anybody does something else than concentrating on the 'business logic'?
One reason might be that it always has been a lie. Using any web framework still ends with tracking and analyzing HTTP...
I can't comment on the Oracle-Sun acquisition but I'd like to direct your attention to the first-page ad in todays Wall Street Journal.
I don't think anyone should be doubting Oracles commitment. Personally, I'm looking forward to what's to come.

More thoughts on my recent job search. This time focused on technical questions.
An overview of my recent job hunt and the questions it raises about the process.
Maybe Google Chrome OS will finally be the successful reincarnation of JavaOS? The similarities are just too obvious.

Nearly every work related thought I have now ends with, “but
this could change because of the Oracle thing.” The subject of
this blog is one of them. While riding the ICE train to Mainz after
speaking at JUG Köln, I was catching up on email and came across a
(likely now irrelevant) org chart for some group other than my own. I
noticed a box filled with the names of individual...
So, the big news today is that Oracle is buying Sun. This is definitely the biggest thing to happen to Java since it's original release (not to mention the rest of Sun's portfolio). Overall, I believe Java is in pretty good hands. Oracle has bet their entire non-database business on Java. It's their lingua franca, the basis of the Oracle Fusion Middleware stack, which includes the entire BEA portfolio (WebLogic, Tuxedo, JRockit, etc.), JDeveloper, Coherence, and tons of other development and server products. More importantly, Fusion Middleware is the technical foundation of Oracle's next-generation Fusion product line, which includes their original business applications, plus PeopleSoft, Siebel, and JD Edwards applications.
Amid all of the fuss over Google App Engine's approach to Java, perhaps taking a moment to step back and look at the real problem...
I was looking for some new Java tech books and my favorite site Bookpool.com. I did some quick Googling for it and found this post. I guess I will have to go with Amazon or one of the other online bookstores. Anyone have a good site for good Java tech books?
If you just knew that Java would perform amazingly better on a Sparc with Solaris, would that convince you to include Sparc and Solaris in your technology stack?
Read an article on Forbes by Bob Worrall.
Maybe Blu-Ray technology is utterly irrelevant, and maybe Java's role there is irrelevant too.
