Publisher Analytics - the feature that almost made it
By Ari Shamash on Jan 08, 2010
The Sun Software Library team always subscribed to Agile development practices. We've adhered to the "Deliver working software frequently" principle by pushing new software to production every two weeks. As soon as we finish developing a feature, we make it available to our users, so we can get feedback, and make the feature even better (Tim Bray says it, and quite a bit more, quite eloquently.)
Some stuff happened that forced change.
This image shows the feature as developed. This feature is currently only available to the super user. In the screen snapshot below, we are actually showing production data. The actual name of the publisher data rendered is blurred out. The snapshot was taken in early December 2009, hence the lack of December data.
