... JSF Features, Griffon, Sailfin Competition, Size of EJB 3.1, IzPack and IPS, and Apple Store Revolts
By pelegri on Sep 14, 2008
A compilation of today's news of interest:
Griffon is a Grails-like framework that uses Groovy and Swing for RIA. Geertjan has already written an Overview and now explains how to add support to it in NetBeans by Converting Grails to Griffon. Both NetBeans and GlassFish Server are very inclusive on the scripting front: a very warm welcome to our party!
A quick heads-up from the Sailfin community: a last chance to enter the Sailfin/Ericsson Contest, the deadline is Sept 30th.
Adam continues his advocacy for EJB 3.x, specially EJB 3.1 and points out that the implementation of EJB 3.1 is very small! Ken just told me that the EG is making good progress with the next public draft, so stay tuned on that front.
Julien continues to work on IzPack for GlassFish (as time is available!) and now has a version using the IPS Packaging system and GlassFish v3. Check out JPZ's note, while ChrisK goes into More Dicussion of the IPS details. The download is here - Julien said he would try to get a new rev "soon"...
And noises of unhappiness with the recent Rejection of Podcaster from the iTunes AppStore because: <quote>Since Podcaster assists in the distribution of podcasts, it duplicates the functionality of the Podcast section of iTunes<\quote>. See the comments from Spier (the developer of Exposure) and Gruber.
