I suprised I didn’t come across this earlier. JBoss has a released a new federated repository system: DNA. http://www.jboss.org/dna I’ve caught up with the getting started document and the reference guide, and I quite like what I see. First things first, DNA is itself not a JCR implementation (yet). Rather, it unifies one or more repositories and provides a single point of access via the JCR API. The repositories themselves may be JCR compliant, but do not have to be. DNA comes with a variety of connectors such as the JCR, JDBC, and SVN connectors.

Paul Lamere has posted a demo of a new 3D interface that he’s been working on for exploring and discoverying new music. Be sure to click through and watch the YouTube video to behold some very impressive animations. Paul also notes that recommendations from Project Aura are on the way.

My five year old daughter, Meredith, recently asked me what I was working on. “I’m just working on some Groovy stuff”, I responded. She then announced: “Groovy is like Gravy, except that it has the ‘Groove’ in it”.

Introduction Here is a brief tutorial on how to setup and object content mapping with Jackrabbit (1.5) and Spring. First things first, download this zip and import the source into your project. As mentioned in this post support for Jackrabbit OCM in Spring still hasn’t found a home. Thus you have to download the zip from the JIRA.

What do you get your Swing developers with Grails Envy this holiday season? Consider getting them Griffon: the Grails-for-Swing framework. Griffon brings the Grails “convention over configuration” to the embattled Swing space. Among many other things Griffon takes all of the terribleness out of Java deployment. With but one command (and no coding) I can create a simple scaffolded Swing application deployed via webstart, applet, and as a standalone app. Note that’s all three: I don’t even need to choose my deployment method.

I’ve realized that JAX-RS can be used to build a web applications based on the MVC pattern just like any other framework (Wicket, Stripes, etc). Typically I use JAX-RS to build services that return XML and/or JSON, but there is no reason I can’t return HTML as well. I feel that the hierarchal nature of RESTful services makes them perfect for delivering website pages too. The only thing that was missing for me was an HTML provider. I’m used to using the JAXB and JSON providers, and I didn’t see a built in one for rendering HTML. So, I decided to build a custom JAX-RS Freemarker provider.

In the late David Foster Wallace’s Infinite Jest, several of the main characters participate in a grand scale “Scorched Earth” style turn-based artillery game on a set of tennis courts. The object for each player was to lob tennis balls across court to opposing player’s targets where the balls represent some sort of ballistic warhead complete with a damage radius.

Being the Apple-lovin Mac user that I am, I prefer to run everything that I can natively on a Mac, as it is always faster and usually has a smaller memory footprint than running it in a Windows VM. This is espeically critical for software development as being able to work efficiently is import to finishing on time and not getting frustrated. To this end I have quested for the ability to run Weblogic 9.2 on the Mac and have it integrated with Eclipse WTP. In my search, I found many tidbits that helped me along the way, but not a full tutorial on how to do it.

The maiden voyage of JavaFX is scheduled to begin today. There have been, what seems to me, a lot of nay-saying and grumbling on the Internet — a place usually known for its welcoming of new ideas with open minds and hearts — regarding the projected success (or failure) of JavaFX.

If conferences like JavaOne are a High School Pep Rally, then “No Fluff, Just Stuff” is skipping out on the rally, and smoking in the parking lot with the Cool Kids. While at the J1 keynote Rich Green envisions “Java on all the screens of your life”, at NFJS, Stuart Halloway declares without ceremony that “Java is dead”.
