Lucky Dog And Bean Validation

Lance has published a new entry showing a simple Example of Bean Validation (JSR 303) in conjunction with Java SE and Java DB (Oracle's distribution based on Apache Derby). The post uses Eclipse and includes detailed instructions and code.

You probably know Lance as the JDBC 4.0 spec lead (aka JSR 221), or as the lead for Java Partner Engineering - and I just noticed his side (main?) interest teaching tennis via his website: Lucky dog Tennis.

Announcing the Open SQL Camp in November


All open databases are equal in front of the developers community. This is the message launched by Baron Schwartz in his announcement of the first Open SQL Camp.

After the last MySQL Users Conference, there were some talks of alternative conferences organized by the users for users. This is the first such event. It will be held in Charlottesville, VA, USA, November 14-16, 2008.

Users, in the context of databases, especially open ones, means developers. Do you feel like hacking some database project? If your database of choice is open (MySQL, PostgreSQL, JavaDB, SQLite, Firebird), you may give the OpenSQLCamp a try!

Continuum on GlassFish

Continuum logo

If you're a Continuum user, here's are the simple steps to make the software run on GlassFish v2. This is a slightly more detailed version of this one from the product documentation. It is valid for the Continuum 1.1 release from late last year.

These steps could be even simpler if this was turned into an GlassFish Update Center module. Such a module could of course deploy the application (the WAR artifact) but more importantly create the JDBC resources before doing so using the Addon Configurator Interface ([1], [2]).

Overall, the GlassFish + JavaDB integration seems to be a simple, yet effective solution for many users.

Slynkr with JavaDB

Slynkr is an Open Source Social Tagging project that was recently added to the GlassFish community. The project started with a couple of Sun-internal special efforts and both of those used an Oracle DB but Jamey has just expanded it to also work with Java DB/ Derby.

Check Jamey's blog for more details.

Using Derby in Applications


Here is a collection of useful posts on Derby or JavaDB from Sun. The first article give a good overview of how to write an application using JavaDB in desktop applications. Of course, there is support for JavaDB in NetBeans 5.0 including application container clients. Finally, Cheng describes different ways to manage JavaDB and has some tips in case you are trying to run Derby scripts from the command line.

The Java DB Community Page has other useful links and bloggers, including Max, David, Francois, Lance, and Bernt.
