... Metro and JAXB, Sahoo, NetBeans 6.5, SpringSource, OpenDS, and Wonderland and Blender

A compilation of today's news of interest:
From Jitu, a description of how to use JAXBContext in Metro.
Davis has a short note showing how to get started with a Servlet App using GFv3 Prelude in NetBeans 6.5.
The ever-observant Adam asks whether SpringSource is Working on EJB 3.1. Not sure if he is reading a bit too much into the tealeaves, or whether somebody had an oops...
From OpenDS community, Terry reports on his OpenDS Access Log Analyzer WebApp, intended for a future putback into OpenDS. And, a very complimentary testimonial about the ease of installation of OpenDS from KR in his OpenDS in 5 Minutes.
And, from Wonderland they have started creating a new, high quality, public world (see WonderBlog and Angad). A nice part is that they are going to be using Blender for the graphics. Blender is an open source tool that seems to be gaining adoption, the results are very good - see for instance the trailer for The Big Buck Bunny. Blender is also a Sun offering at Network.Com/Apps/Blender (thanks to Kevin for the tip).
