Sometimes, it’s just about the waiting.

Well. It looks like I won’t be using Spotlight for a while.

Developing with Eclipse and ServiceMix

with 2 comments

Update :  There’s some issues with this right now – see ESB-531.

My pal Ade has produced a nice little video on using m2eclipse and the Apache ServiceMix maven archetypes catalog to accelerate your development of ServiceMix-based applications. You can find it on the FUSE training videos entitled Performance.

Check it out. It should speed up your ServiceMix development!

IJTC Conference

leave a comment »

Two months since the last blog entry! It’s usually the case that blog drought occurs when there is either a feast or a famine of things going on. In this case, it’s the former. I’ll catch up with events as soon as I can and do some evil date mangling on the blog timeline.

In the interim – I’m sitting here in at the IJTC conference in the Science Gallery in Dublin. Jeff Genender is about to kick off his talk on Apache Mina. I’ve already heard Charles Nutter speaking about using many languages on the JVM and Guillaume Nodet on Apache ServiceMix.

I’ve missed out on some equally cool talks, like web application development with Spring, and an introduction to Spring Batch, just because I haven’t yet master bi-location.

Great content so far — but the crowd is smaller than I expected. That’s a bit of a surprise.

Maybe everyone is watching the LIVE VIDEO that’s going on right now. I can inform you that there’s about a 3-second lag 🙂
