When I first started asking Eclipse developers about provisioning and lockdown – do we need it, what did they think about it, etc. – several things became clear very quickly. First, there are two distinct camps – people who manage people using Eclipse and people who use Eclipse. The pe...
These days the popularity of Ext JS (a JavaScript library) is gaining momentum. One of the most popular widgets within Ext JS is the DataGrid. The reason – displaying data from a database is one of the most common tasks of a web application. “Out of the box” the DataGrid has functional...

“What would you think if I told you that you can develop a web application at least ten times faster with Rails than you can with a typical Java framework?” Oops! Ten times faster! Well, after these comments I decided to learn Ruby on Rails. I need to know the true key of the productiv...
The end of the year is an opportunity to review the past year’s activity, and to present this to our Executive Committee (EC) members, to our broader membership, and to the general public. So this month I will summarize our progress during the past year. First, in addition to the ongoi...
Those with virtualization skills are in high demand right now. That makes them just as difficult to retain as it is to find and hire them. Indeed, as virtualization becomes more important to enterprise IT, those who understand VMWare, and other virtualization technology, as well as u...
The mouse was the original idea of Doug Engelbart who was the head of the Augmentation Research Center (ARC) at Stanford Research Institute. Engelbart's philosophy is best embodied, in my opinion, in the design of another device that he invented, the five-finger keyboard - with keys li...
This article contains some settings I use for remote debugging web applications using the Jetty and Tomcat containers, and profiling web applications deployed on a remote Tomcat server, using the Eclipse IDE. By remote I mean connecting over a socket, the container can (and does in my ...

In my many years of programming, almost 20 years now, I have used countless integrated development environments (IDEs). I have used everything from a simple text editor all the way up to the high-end IDEs that Sybase, IBM, and Oracle use. More recently I have come to embrace the open s...
This tutorial shows you how to get started with SQL Anywhere using Sybase WorkSpace tools in an Eclipse development environment. It doesn't describe how to code with JDBC or how to code in Java; there are many resources available to assist you with these topics. Rather, this document w...
The Eclipse runtime underwent a paradigm change in the transition from version 2.1 to 3.0. The OSGi framework specification R3.0 was implemented. Parts of the Public API have changed in version 3.0. Version 3.0 contains a compatibility layer to give plug-ins written for the 2.1 API the...
As we enter 2006, there's nothing stopping the spread of Eclipse, the open source development environment. The steadily growing number of free and commercial plug-ins available attests to its success. It's now time to report on our experiences in developing the visual rules plug-in for...
Programmers usually work in a so-called Integrated Development Environment (IDE). You can write, compile and run programs there. An IDE also has a Help thingy that describes all elements of the language, and makes it easier to find and fix errors in your programs. While some IDE progra...
The Web Tools Project (WTP) by the Eclipse Foundation is a set of open source tools that substantially reduce the time required for the development of Web applications, EJBs, and Web services. The WTP's current version is 0.7.1 and version 1.0 is coming later this year. The framework p...
The Eclipse Open Source Integrated Development Environment (IDE) (see http://eclipse.org) is rapidly gaining popularity among Java developers primarily because of its excellent Java Development Tools (JDT) and its highly extensible plug-in architecture. Extensibility is, in fact, one o...
While NetBeans ain't perfect, far from it, SWT and Eclipse aren't right for Java, says Joseph Ottinger; a position with which Henry Roswell disagrees. Read the first of a new series of 'Point/Counterpoint' discussions...and join the 80+ readers who have already weighed in on one side o...
First, the importance of adding companies such as BEA, Borland, and Computer Associates to our board cannot be overstated. Each of these companies competes fiercely with IBM in the marketplace. Each is making million dollar plus investments in Eclipse ($250,000 per year in dues, plus a...
Two of the cool features in Eclipse 3.1, the ability to set a project based on an existing ANT build file and the ability to export a project settings to an ANT build file, attracted David Heffelfinger. But when he couldn't find any supporting information on the Eclipse web site he exp...
Every IDE will allow you to manage files and build projects. Eclipse goes beyond that by dealing with the code you are writing on a more intimate level than the typical file-centric view embraced by most IDEs. As a developer, you can use that familiarity to your advantage by letting Ec...
Yakov Fain reaches Lesson 11 in his popular 'Java basics' series. This time he deals with how and why Java programmers working on large projects that have lots of classes usually organize them in different packages; and explores the new element introduced in Java 5.0 called static impo...

When in October of last year I asked the rhetorical question 'Is Mergermania Back?' (JDJ, Vol. 9, issue 10), there wasn't much doubt that it already was, but it took until last month to truly demonstrate just to what extent. It's not just back; in March we saw it's back with a vengeanc...

Although some folks were predicting a 'bloodbath,' the App Server Shoot-Out at Web Services Edge 2005 in Boston did not result in any serious injuries. Instead, Anne Thomas Manes, VP and Research Director at Burton Group, brought together representatives from a wide assortment of appli...
'One of my resolutions this year is to start teaching part-time Java-related classes in some college,' writes JDJ editorial board member Yakov Fain. 'That's why I started browsing the computer science course lists that are being offered this year. While graduate-level programs offer ma...
The Eclipse team is well on the way to the 3.1 release. The current release is M4 with M5 to follow in less than two weeks (M5 is due Feb 18th). 'I made the plunge to 3.1M4,' reports JDJ's Eclipse editor, Bill Dudney. 'I've been using it for about 4 weeks now and here are my notes on t...

'Stop saying that 'Java is not Open Source,' and realize that 'Sun's implementation is not open source.' Even better, stop saying that 'Our implementation is open source,' it is not you know that, and this is OK, we're not blaming you, we want to work with you.' As part of our end of y...
