New Java and Mac tutorials

February 6, 2010 Leave a comment

Recently I contributed to some more articles on the devdaily.com website, including these Java and Mac tutorials:

Already a month into the new year, but we’re pretty cranked up about the Java and Mac tutorials we’ve already written this year.

List of UIManager color keys

January 19, 2010 Leave a comment

We’ve been writing some Java Swing code lately, and somewhere along the way we got caught up in the list of color keys in the Java UIManager class. These keys are cool, because if you use them properly, it can help keep the colors in your Java/Swing application consistent within the application itself, as well as consistent across platforms.

While working on our Swing app, Al just wrote this “list of UIManager color keys” tutorial. Hopefully the source code and list of color keys in that article will be helpful to other Java developers in their Swing/GUI development work.

And now, it’s back to our regularly-scheduled Swing app development work…

A printf reference page

January 8, 2010 Leave a comment

Nothing major, but we just made some updates to our printf reference page. This page started off when we were doing a Java project that required some formatted printing, but if you’re familiar with Java, Perl, and Ruby, you know that the printf format syntax is similar across all those languages.

In other news, we’re just keeping an eye on the CES 2010 news. It’s fun to see all the cool, new stuff, but I don’t have any major purchase plans based on anything I’ve seen.

Alexander Consulting, in Louisville, KY

January 6, 2010 Leave a comment

Just getting into this whole ‘work’ thing again today, and as we were working on blog posts about Mac HTML editors, we realized the alexanderky.com website was created with iWeb. So, while we’re in that neighborhood, if you’re interested in Java, Ruby, PHP, Unix, and Linux consulting in Louisville, Kentucky, check out that website.

(Yes, that was a shameless plug.)

Java Log4J tutorial (update)

January 4, 2010 Leave a comment

Cool, we got the coffee going here a little while ago, and also just updated our Java Log4J tutorial.

We’re also going to update our Log4J format example, well, after we get some more coffee going, lol. (Way to much champagne lately, and it’s a little rough getting back to work.)

And while I’m in the neighborhood, here’s a Log4J link, and here’s a link to Sun’s Java website.

Happy holidays from the devdaily.com team. We’re all calling it quits for the week, and it’s time to relax and celebrate. Best wishes to you and your family for a wonderful holiday season.

Sun releases OpenSSO Express 9

December 15, 2009 Leave a comment

If you like OpenSSO, you’ll be glad to know Sun just released OpenSSO Express 9 (along with OpenDS 2.2).

I’ve been a fan of OpenSSO for a while now, and I just hope Oracle will keep this project alive once they (presumably) finish buying Sun.┬áIt’s weird to say this (because I’m not a big IBM fan), but I wish IBM had bought Sun. I think they have a better open source history than Oracle.
