[wtp-dev] We're Newsworthy! - Java Feature ? Bringing Together Eclipse, WTP, Struts, and Hibernate

Check out this JDJ article! WTP is now being mentioned  in the same breath as Eclipse, Struts, and Hibernate. This indicates that we're getting name recognition. This is a great endorsement for the work of the WTP dev team!

The Software Quality Needs of Java Development Managers
A survey of 216 Java software development managers, who oversee teams of five or more developers, identified four major obstacles that impede development managers from working to improve the quality of code their development teams produce.

Web 2.0 'Goes Mainstream'
by Jeremy Geelan

When newsstands throughout America on Monday, March 27, started displaying the April 3 issue of Newsweek with its cover story about "Web 2.0" - "Putting the 'We' in Web" - it seems to me that we have reached one of Malcolm Gladwell's now-famous Tipping Points.

Interesting Times in the Java Enterprise
by Rick Hightower

Robert F. Kennedy once said, "There is a Chinese curse which says, 'May he live in interesting times.'" The enterprise Java space is "interesting." Not too long ago, folks like Bruce Tate, Gavin King, and Rod Johnson were pushing lightweight frameworks such as Spring and Hibernate, and there is still a lot of true innovation going on with AspectJ, Spring, Hibernate, WebWork, JBoss (method invocation handlers), and more.

Java Development Managers Stress the Need to Improve Software Quality
Lack of attention early in the development cycle negatively impacts the code's entire lifecycle

by Nigel Cheshire

We've all experienced it - the "get it out the door" mentality that seems to be the driving force behind many software application deliveries - a prime example of the software industry's immaturity that favors completion over quality, and an end user's preference for hot new features over stable, reliable systems. Deferring the QA process is an expensive way to operate and corporations are taking a financial hit for these software errors. According to the Washington, D.C., National Institute of Standards and Testing (NIST), software errors cost the U.S. economy $60 billion per year. This report was issued back in 2002 and, since then, the software industry has done little to improve the situation.

Java Feature — Bringing Together Eclipse, WTP, Struts, and Hibernate
Improve application maintainability, code reusability, and code clarity

by Boris Minkin

In the article "Creating Web Applications with the Eclipse WTP" ( ), we created a Web application using Eclipse Web Tools Project, the Tomcat application server, and the MySQL database server. That application (DBTest) was good, however, it had some limitations:
1.        Java Server Pages (JSP) names were hard-coded inside the servlet code
2.        SQL was also hard-coded in the command classes

Java Cover Story — Rich Internet Applications with Adobe Flex 2 and Java
Flash talks to POJO

by Yakov Fain, Victor Rasputnis, & Anatole Tartakovsky

A typical Java developer knows that when you need to develop a GUI for a Java application, Swing is the tool. Eclipse SWT also has a number of followers, but the majority of people use Java Swing. For the past 10 years, it was a given that Swing development wouldn't be easy; you have to master working with the event-dispatch thread, GridBaglayout, and the like. Recently, the NetBeans team created a nice GUI designer called Matisse, which was also ported to MyEclipse. Prior to Matisse, JBuilder had the best Swing designer, but it was too expensive. Now a good designer comes with NetBeans for free.

J2EE/.NET Interoperability
A look at managing complex interoperating systems

by Lawrence Moroney

Due to the benefits of each, J2EE and .NET have penetrated most markets and companies to the point where 95% of medium and large-scale enterprises support both .NET and J2EE, and 30% or more of new application development will include both by 2009, according to a study published by Gartner. Data centers of these companies rarely work in "silo" mode where J2EE and .NET work independently and don't need to interoperate with each other, but instead form a mesh of applications in what is termed a "mixed-mode" deployment. These deployments have driven the emergence of standards such as Web Services to ease their integration.

Blended Development
Interview with Blake Connell, Director of Product Marketing for WebLogic Server, BEA Systems

After BEA's announcement regarding their release of the BlueDragon BEA WebLogic Server, SYS-CON Media had the chance to talk with Blake Connell.

Using Virtual Sockets to Fix Software Broken by Firewalls
Without violating security

by Ron Sigal & Tom Elrod

A character on the TV show "L.A. Law" once said, "It was the 60s. Safe sex meant keeping the parking brake on." In the early days of public networks security carried a similar sense of urgency. In fact, the network was its own best defense. One of the authors remembers accommodating a colleague by spending an afternoon plotting the hops, gateways, and contorted syntax necessary to send an e-mail from Brooklyn to Michigan. (How many computer scientists does it take to send an e-mail?)

Maven: A Different Way of Looking at Software Development
A real-time engineering framework

by Jason van Zyl

Software development is typically carried out in an opaque environment where progress can be slow and (too often) the resulting build processes lack visibility, transparency, and collaboration. The Apache Software Foundation's Maven project approaches the problem of building software by providing the technical underpinnings for a set of development methods that enable engineers and other stakeholders in a project to optimize build reliability, accelerate build velocity, and capture and share build knowledge. Maven differs from current script-based approaches to building software by first defining, standardizing, and then publishing the build process as a logically organized structured lifecycle. Having evolved from the Open Source development world of distributed, asynchronous, iterative, and highly component-based engineering, Maven's technology helps development teams effectively cooperate to create and deliver successful software projects consistently.

Whatifitis: 'To Dwell in the Future and Forget About Today'
by Joe Winchester

Some of the words I dread most in a meeting are: "What if ?" They're fine in the present tense of "What if a user tries this option?" or "What if the database read fails mid flight?", but as soon as the future tense is introduced I begin to worry. "What if the database and middleware changes?" or "What if sometime soon we don't just have to run on PCs but need to work on mobile phones?" There is also the future future tense such as "What happens to the UI if the operating system is ported to run on a wrist watch?" or "What if one day the company merges with another whose corporate standard is MAC and SNA?"

Java Feature — Graph3D
Visualizing data using Java3D

by Valor Dodd

In today's work environment analyzing large amounts of varying data types is paramount. Graphing techniques can be an invaluable tool to understanding and interpreting that data. In many cases two-dimensional graphs, such as XY, scatter, pie, and bar charts, are sufficient. But increasingly more complex graphing techniques are needed. In these instances Java3D is an excellent resource with numerous features that allow personalized generation of three-dimensional data displays. Not only will Java3D yield better insight into the data by highlighting important aspects of the data, but it also makes attractive displays to spice up any presentation.

Using Self-Signed Certificates for Web Service Security
How to compete with trusted certificate authorities

by Michael J. Remijan

One of the great things about the Java programming language is the Open Source community that provides great applications at little or no cost. An example of this is Apache Tomcat, which provides a solid Web server for development using servlet or JSP technology. Now that Web Service technology is maturing there's a potential for a whole scenario of applications to take advantage of a Swing feature-rich thin client on the front-end coupled to the data verification and business logic already developed in the Web or ejb tier. Such applications are only viable if they can be secure, however, security doesn't have to come at a great cost. The purpose of this article is to demonstrate how Web Service clients can use self-signed security certificates over the secure HTTPS protocol.

2006 JavaOne JSR Itineraries
by Onno Kluyt

It's JavaOne show time again. The Java Community Process (JCP) Program and its members have a lot to share from the latest Java specification (JSR) accomplishments showcased in a diversity of forms at the conference, including technical sessions (TS), birds-of-a-feather meetings (BOF), industry panels, training sessions, round tables, and community events. Let me give you a mini tour of some of the JSRs on the conference agenda this year.
