In my role @ sys-con.com I got to do some very cool stuff. At JavaOne i many times was able to interview smart folks etc. Anyway one of the folks I talked with was Nigel Cheshire of Enerjy. They make cool tools to help you and your team build higher quality software (its very cool chec...
I read a pointer to this on /. the other day and mentally filed it to go back and see what the fuss was all about. I finally had time tonight. Bottom line, Mr. Gould does not get it. Clearly the IBM press release is about making it so Lotus Notes folks are not stuck with Windows. Their...
While there I had the great pleasure of spending some time with Mike Milinkovich of Eclipse and Mike Taylor from Instations doing a webcast. They just released a new product RCP Developer and we spent some time talking about that and the advantages of the RCP.
I'm in SF on the ground heading out to NetBeans day. I'll post my general impressions once there. I also have some stuff to do with the JCP. Should be interesting. I was just reviewing the session and there is as usual way too much to see but I'm going to get a change to hang out with ...
Tons of interesting stuff came from today's NetBeans shindig. I am impressed with the progress they have made in just a year. The tool set is a lot better and seems to be making significant progress on the way to being a first class player. Yet another reason to be glad for Eclipse. Th...
Ok, I've been following the hype and speculation about Oracle buying JBoss but the latest bit that I read on Business Week really got my dander up. It's not the article from BW that was irritating at all it was the comment by some one claiming to be 'Siddharth Gulhati'. I don't know Si...
I'm not sure how I feel about insurance though. With insurance comes lawyers and with lawyers comes complexity. It will be interesting to see how many takers this type of insurance has.
With the popularity of Object Relational Mapping tools like Hibernate and Cayenne, developers are more often than other giving control of some of their code to models. Will this help raise MDA into the mainstream?

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...
A few weeks ago Agitar Software announced that Kent Beck had joined their team. I sat down and talked with Alberto Savoia, CTO, and Kent Beck, Agitar Fellow, to find out what prompted the move and what Agitar is up to that is so exciting.
In July IBM announced that the Rational tool set would be fully integrated within the Eclipse tool set and would provide an integrated set of tools to support the full life cycle of software development. Recently I was able to interview Lee Nackman, the CTO of the Rational division of ...
When it comes to code, Bill Dudney wonders, how do we measure what 'good' is? 'As a developer I find code coverage results to be a fantastic tool to determine if my developer tests are covering all the code under test that they should,' he writes. 'All too often though I see tests that...
