Third Times A Charm!

We have always heard it said that the third time around is a charm...in this case I think the saying is accurate. The Early Draft Review 2 of EJB 3.0 has been released. A quick reading of the draft says that this third time around EJB''s may pack all the power and ease of use that we have been wanting since the days of EJB1.0 with out all the convoluted bloat. Keep your eyes tuned.....

Open Source is Not a Career Path

"If you're getting into open source because you see it as a career path, you're doing something wrong." It's not that Linux creator Linus Torvalds thinks open-source programmers should work for peanuts (he doesn't), but rather that they should be properly motivated. Call it software with a soul if you like. Only the truly passionate need apply. That's the message Torvalds and several other open-source luminaries have for the next generation of programmers. "A career path is not a motivation," Torvalds said during Tuesday's Open Source Development Lab's enterprise Linux summit. A reluctant visionary, (he blushed a shade of bright red during an intro that mentioned his inclusion in Time Magazine's list of most influential people) Torvalds is nonetheless passionate about his life's work, an open-source operating system that has blossomed into a major force in the technology world." from the blog posting of Larry Greenemeier on InformationWeekBlogs .

Internals of Java Class Loading

A.class is not A.class, when each is loaded by a different class loader. That's only the beginning of the trickiness unveiled by Binildas Christudas in his article Internals of Java Class Loading, in which he shows how multiple class loaders relate to one another, the consequences (and yet necessity) of loading classes from multiple class loaders, and why you might even want to write your own. He says, "all Java programmers should know how the mechanism works and what can be done with it to suit their needs. This can save time that would otherwise have been spent debugging ClassNotFoundException, ClassCastException, etc."

This is a very good post on Java.net that gives a good overview of the internals of Java class loading.
