BlogEd Beta release

This is my first BlogEd entry on my external Sun Blog.

I am playing with a new beta release that I have just made availabe

To get this to work with this version of Roller you need to open up the "Edit > Blog Properties" menu and choose the blog info pane and set the "MetaWeblog API" publication method. Here are the fields I set in the Blog Properties pane:

Property Value
service url http://blogs.sun.com/roller/xmlrpc
blog id bblfish
user id bblfish (same as above)
password won't tell

When you next publish an entry it will first download as many remote entries as Roller will allow, and then publish the new ones you have written. As you should see, BlogEd allows one to add a little picture next to your text to illustrate your post.

This is still a beta release, and prone to change. But it is stabilising quite well.

One thing we still need to work on is some way of securing the xml-rpc communication between the client and the server.

Henry,

Before I try this out on my blogs.sun.com account, does is just add to the entries that all ready exist or will it pull down the entires in blogs.sun.com and keep a copy of all entires locally? I just don't want to lose what I have on b.s.c.

Hi Henry!
Any support for proxies? I tried
java -Dhttp.ProxyHost=myproxy -Dhttp.proxyPort=myport -jar bloged.jar
But I still get an exception when I try to publish. I spend most of my time inside SWAN, so this would be really useful.

I noticed that there is a typo in the jnlp file:

    <homepage href="https://bloded.dev.java.net/"/>

I assume you want "bloged" not "bloded".

Thanks for the comments. I have fixed the jnlp file, and will look more carefully into proxies. I thought it identified the proxies correctly on OSX when I last worked continually from SWAN a few weeks ago. Bloged will download a full copy of what you have on the server, and store it locally. (though it does not yet do a good job of caching the images). But wait a little for the next release, next week, that will be even better.
