Inaugural JavaLand in Germany
It took trains, planes, and automobiles to get there. I had heard Germany ran some great conferences, but JavaLand was promised to be outstanding.

My imaginary trip started in Stockholm, Sweden, with Jfokus 2014. I'm now traveling 1400 km southwest, to Brühl, Germany, for...

Recently, I was asked to participate in creating another Java application at my company.
It was to be our team's third major Java application since 2002.
We felt we had plenty of wisdom from our previous two Java applications to apply to our third one.
One of our first steps was to form an application architecture sub-team.
This sub-team's purpose was to provide the development team with a solid...

A while ago, I was asked to evaluate another Java application that was being used at my company.
It was a point-of-sale app, developed entirely "in-house" by one of our overseas affiliates.
I wondered what their MVC model would look like.
How different would their Java app be from the ones I have worked on?
I started my evaluation by learning all I could about the architecture and design of this...
