Why Should You Join IBM’s My Developer Works?

I’ll tell you why! For one, you can participate in a new Group called Java Enterprise Open Source Application Architecture.

Go to My Developer Works and click on the Register link to sign up. It just takes a minute and then you can participate in that group and thousands of others, and read my blog (I know you’ll want to do that).

Have fun. Thanks for reading!



JMX Back From the Dead

No, the Java Management Extensions (JMX) hasn’t gone anywhere. I’ve just forgotten about it for a while. Well, I’m planning to write a second edition to my book, Java Management Extensions (O’Reilly 2002). But I’m going to post the chapters here on my blog, so anyone can read them. My editor at O’Reilly said a couple of years ago that the book sold so poorly that O’Reilly isn’t interested in doing a second edition. So, I say, fine, I’ll do it myself. And it’ll be free. Due to copyright crap, I won’t be publishing any of the first edition here. Not to worry. I’ll post enough new stuff to have you doing JMX remoting in your sleep.

I need ideas for a sample application. Right now I’m thinking of the Java Pet Store for a number of reasons, not the least of which is that it is freely available. But I’m open.

Look out, world. JMX is back.
