Some developers believe that Chuck Norris is the best Java programmer. This is nothing but a myth. For instance the statement:
Chuck Norris doesn’t need unit tests because his code always work. ALWAYS.[from geekstogo.com]
is absolutely irrelevant, knowing that Bruce Lee practiced Deployment Driven Development (DDD) for years, even before the advent of Java. He deployed the application first, then wrote the test and eventually the bullet proof code... The deployment was always successful and the green-bar never red.
I will give a free Java EE 6 "Hacking" Session at 25. January 2011 for .
Because of lack of time to create slides, I will spend the entire time in the IDE building a random application with NetBeans 7 / Glassfish 3.1 and JBoss 6 (in parallel).
Initially the session was planned as a parallel hacking Spring + Java EE 6 session (with fun factor), but the Spring guys rejected the invitation.
However, if you like and believe in Spring :-) you are still very welcome, I'm sure the JUG Berlin leader will be able to organizer another beamer. We only will have to change the title slightly. There should be no problem with slides :-)
[The organizer also promised free beer and pizza]
Would you pay for JDK 7 on Mac OS X? Mac OS X users are spending money for useful tools, editors and productivity extensions. Spending 20-50$ for a nice, easy to install JDK 7 port
is a compelling idea (with several hundred thousands potential customers). The business model would be very similar to Linux-distributions. A JDK 1.7 port could be even integrated into the Mac OS X Lion app store with auto-update functionality. So, where is the startup?
