There are several ways to enable user authentication for web based applications, like .htaccess files, plain tekst files, databases, LDAP, etc. They all have their pros and cons. In case a central, flexible solution is needed, either a database or LDAP solution can be used.
I chose for an LDAP solution since it can be reused by many web and application servers and the applications that run on...
This relatively long article discusses OSGI, HK2, GlassFish modularity, how to extend GlassFish CLI and GlassFish administration console, Using GlassFish update system and finally setting up and managing an IPS package system.
In the past few month several Java EE 6 related JSRs (Java Specification Requests) have been finalized. The final ballot for them ended on November 30 and all were approved. Today, December 10, 2009, Java EE 6 and GlassFish v3, THE reference implementation of Java EE6, are released.
Four and a half year after the release of Java EE 5 we enter the next Java EE era. GlassFish v3 is the first...

After nearly 10 years at Sun, and 5 years as Chief Open Source Officer, I have now left Sun. You can read my reflections on those years on my new personal blog (to which you may wish to subscribe).
The scoop of these days is the “climagate” - a hacker stole and then published on the web a bunch of e-mail messages and documents from a British university and those documents allegedly affirm, among other things, that some data sets used to proof the Anthropogenic Global Warming (AGW) have been “massaged” way beyond the legit terms. Depending on the country you live in, you'll find a widely...

I was going through the documentation of Spring Roo, version 1.0.1 while preparing a talk for JDC 2010 about the Spring Roo .. No need to mention the Roo is awesome, amazing and not Magic :-)
Ben Alex , Stefan Schmidt did a great job really in this project. Smart architecture!
"The automated startup-time scan is also very useful as you upgrade to newer versions of Roo. Often a new version of Roo will incorporate enhancements to the add-ons that generate files in your project." check more on Roo documentation . This is very useful, and once there is a new version from Roo, developers will participate in testing it by just running the roo shell in their project's directory!
Spring Roo, I like it :)
Christmas holidays is one of my favourite moment in the year, I have time to see my relatives, read books, play with my kids and hack a little bit.
I think I don't like the most in the strawman proposal is that the syntax for function type and for lambda literal reuse the same symbol '#'.
It's something that I've observed when teaching C. The C syntax use * when you...

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.
As it seems, Marc and Paul (the leaders of JAX-RS / Jersey) really have understood what OpenSource really means: Communicate with the community, understand their needs and thoughts, accept their ideas. I would wish that more project leaders would assimilate this open mind and welcoming kind of leadership.

I authored a refcard about GlassFish v3 recently which covers GlassFish v3 new features. You can download the refcard freely and use it to learn version 3 features and capabilities.
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...
According to the PrimeFaces website, "PrimeFaces is an open source component suite for Java Server Faces featuring 70+ Ajax powered rich set of JSF components. Additional TouchFaces module features a UI kit for developing mobile web applications.". Since it is an OpenSource JSF implementation that is very close to releasing JSF 2.0 compliant components, I figured it was time to try it...
