one of the many improvements, changes and bugfixes you may find in the GX WebManager 9.8.0 changelog but one I'd like the highlight a little. As of 9.8.0 deployment on SUN JDK 1.6.0 is now fully supported!

GX WebManager on SpringSource Application Platform

As I reported in my previous post SpringSource, formerly known as Interface21 and the company behind the popular Spring Framework, has released the SpringSource Application Platform (S2AP) in beta. This new Java application server is build on top of an OSGi runtime (Equinox) providing a very nice runtime deployment model! Put a little Spring and Apache Tomcat in the mix and, needless to say, I just had to see what I needed to do to deploy GX WebManager on S2AP.

JavaOne 2008 wrapup

This week I visited the JavaOne 2008 conference in San Francisco. A lot of impressions and a great time with Java coders from all over the world.

The default Maven root project object model provides very good defaults that declare what needs to be done in most cases. Sometimes you need a bit more or different and Maven lets you do that. In this first episode I’ll show you how to filter your source files.

Did you catch the Tortoise today?

In most software development projects reaching the end goal often feels like one of Zeno's paradoxes. You know what has to be done in how much time, but somehow you never really seem to catch that tortoise. Contrary to the original paradox however in this case it may just be the Tortoise that slows Achilles down.

OSGi adoption on the rise!
