Before going into Software Engineering, I took a job in PC support at the university from which I graduated where it was my job to answer the support questions of the professors and administrative staff. I quickly realized that my job had very little to do with any sort of proficiency with technology as it did with simply being a sink for raw human emotion.

Copy the asp files to inetpub\wwwroot folder, set up the Database, install the COM+ DLLs and run the application, Yes this would have worked if you are working on IIS 4, 5, 6 but not anymore. There are more steps to do when you are working with IIS 7. And most of them are tricky and can make seasoned developer run around for solutions.

I’ve been slowly attempting to migrate The Music Explorer from JavaFX 1.1 to 1.2. One area of the application that I was particularly looking forward to updating was the Twitter panel, which is the set of UI components that let you automatically Tweet your activity using the application.

So I went to this conference a few weeks ago called JavaOne, you might have heard of it. Yeah, that’s me drinking the Mountain Dew in the picture to the left. Actually this was my second trip to San Francisco for this conference however my experience this time around differed greatly, but in a good way. For one, I went with a group of 6 from CITYTECH Inc. including Bill Gloff, Jeff Palmer, Sten Anderson, Matt Campbell, and Matt Van Bergen. Last time it was just one other colleague and me back in 2006. There are definitely benefits from going with a group. For one, there could be a good session or BOF that you overlooked that another person might remind you of. For me, I almost missed the Script Bowl 2009. How would I forgive myself? Also, it’s fun to get together and share things you’ve learned while it’s still fresh in your mind. Actually a few of my colleagues wrote blogs on their experiences at JavaOne. Bill Gloff, Sten Anderson and Matt Van Bergen had many stories to tell which I will try not to repeat in this blog. Also, check out Matt Campbell of CITYTECH doing a lightning talk at the JavaOne pavilion.

If a genie offered to give you some incredible super power, say the gift of flight, or invisibility, but in return would chop your IQ in half, would you do it? What if he said that, over time, you’ll recover most of your intelligence to a point, but you’ll never be quite as smart as you are right at this moment — would you do it now?

Developer magazines sometimes are able to interview key developers of high profile projects after they’ve been shipped (with questions such as “what went right?”, what went wrong?”, etc.). Since I officially kicked my first non-trivial JavaFX application, Music Explorer FX, out of the door last week, I figured that I would grant an interview of my own. Since my five year old daughter, Meredith, had refusal rights from her last interview (and also since she was the only one interested in talking to me), I happily granted her the honor.

Since past one month, couple of my friends asked me how to install and configure SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services on Vista. I had to recall what I had done few quarters ago. I also redirected them to this Microsoft KB.

Last night I gave up something dear to me…no not my kidney, my first gen iPhone. As I navigated my way through the winding passageways of AT&T’s completely non-frustrating website to the iPhone 3GS pre-order page, I noticed something.

Well, today marks my one-month anniversary with CITYTECH. I came aboard as CITYTECH’s Marketing Communications Manager a few weeks ago and have already seen so many exciting things happening around here – a couple new, big clients, a few IT networking socials, and lots of things in the works. I thought now might be a good time to share some observations.

So as I mentioned last week, in my exploration of JavaFX I’ve written a music discovery tool called “Music Explorer FX” (or just MEFX for short). It’s been available for about a week now in the Java Store, but since that’s only available within the U.S. and requires registration, I’ve provided a link here. Just click on the “launch” button and you’ll be on your way.

Developer droves. They waited in a pilgrimage style caravan spanning six San Franciscan blocks around Moscone West, and when the dust cleared on the grounds Robostev… errr Phil Schiller took the stage as expected.

And now, the thrilling conclusion to my untimely JavaOne coverage… The New World: JavaFX Technology-Based UI Controls Finally! This standout session on the new controls offered in JavaFX 1.2 is exactly what I was waiting for. Delivered by most of the same team as the previous day’s unfortunate Extreme GUI Makeover, they launched right into showing the new Look and Feel, Caspian, citing Nimbus as having a dated look.

Although there was a somewhat somber mood at JavaOne this year (thanks Oracle!), you couldn’t help but notice the awareness and general excitement for dynamic languages and in particular Groovy (here is some additional proof). And as my colleague Sten Anderson pointed out already, Groovy won the Script Bowl 2009 which was represented by the languages’ project manager Guillaume Laforge. Last year’s winner was JRuby due to a dazzling eye candy type of Demo, but of course, was a useless application for the real world like most demos are. I wouldn’t be suprised a bit to see Scala win it next year as it seems the momentum for it is growing.

With the web strewn with madness ranging from Robosteve to Rumor Bingo, and with an outset wrought by threats anew and uncertainties a many, the stakes are high at Apple’s WWDC 2009. The scene yesterday at Moscone West came complete with all the fixins necessary for an old fashioned technological hoedown: free goods, signage of the mass proportion type, lattes, and developers abound. The most notable part of the registration process was the inclusion of an iPhone App that contained an interactive session schedule, Moscone interactive schematics and more. Tasty. The lobby chatter buzzed with all the possibilities (via TGR), as the crowd continued to build throughout the day.

Still using scriptlets in your CQ5 JSPs? CQ5 components tend to rely heavily on JSP scriplet code, despite the availability of tag libraries to handle the logic associated with rendering a component. I wanted to provide a quick example of how to replace a block of scriptlet code in a JSP by using a Java bean class in conjunction with JSP tags.

Here’s the next post in my series of increasingly untimely coverage of JavaOne. Wednesday’s theme for me was all about user experience which started with… Extreme GUI Makeover Extreme GUI Makeover is a JavaOne favorite. I thoroughly enjoyed last year’s version, delivered by Ben Galbraith, which covered the case study of converting a Cobol application to a Swing Application (something I happened to be actually doing at the time).

I made the trip out to San Francisco this past week to visit a client and also attend JavaOne. It seemed like an interesting time to attend JavaOne with the looming Oracle acquisition of Sun Microsystems. I attended most of the key note sessions including the one which featured Scott McNealy and Larry Ellison on stage together. I thought their interaction on stage was forced and not very genuine, but would I have expected something different? No, I figured Scott McNealy would be sad and Larry Ellison not showing any feeling at all. This was the case. I was surprised that Oracle did not even have a key note slot this year. Perhaps, this was because of the pending (not yet finalized) acquisition?

Here’s a breakdown of some of the sessions that I attended on the first day of the JavaOne conference. I meant to get this out in a more timely manner but it turns out that I’m no good at spontaneous posting.

Did you hear the word “BING”? NO??? It’s time to know, BING is a new search engine from Microsoft. When I was reading this article in one of the popular Business Newspaper, BING caught my attention and I started trying it out and exploring more about the BING and its features. Now if I have to search anything I open two tabs [of IE 8 of course] and search in GOOGLE and BING. Want to know the verdict, try it out…

I’ve already mentioned in a previous post what I found most exciting, from a personal standpoint, about the JavaOne Keynote. Indeed, the announcement about the Java App Store itself is cause for celebration. A central point of distribution would be a potentially great injection of vitality into an aging Java community.
June 2, 2009 7:01 PM
The culminating point in this morning’s JavaOne key note was the announcement of the Java App store, accessible at store.java.com. The intention of the Java App Store is to give Java developers a central, standardized way to distribute their Java applications to the potentially billions of users of Java devices around the world.
