All right, I'm ready to admit that I made a slight miscalculation. Not an error, necessarily...just a slight misjudgment when it came to the timing of something. Back in January I made a set of predictions concerning the industry, as I'm wont to do at the beginning of a new year. In th...
One of the first truly reusable components I wrote in Java was a login bean that validated a username/password against our company's network. It was lightweight (using AWT classes), and worked with both applets and applications.
As the Web grows, a great deal of effort is being made toward writing applications in Java that interact with databases. Fortunately, JDBC provides an easy, database-vendor-independent way of writing such applications. While this approach works for a number of applications, there are ...
As we try to keep pace in the frantic Internet era, it's easy to become enraptured by the latest technologies - JavaBeans, CORBA, Swing and so on. However, in the rush to add the latest buzzword to our resumes or marketing brochures, we too often forget the basics of object-oriented pr...
Where were you in mid-June 1999, between the 15th and the 18th? I know where at least 20,000 of you were: Moscone Center, San Francisco.

I don't know about you, but these months are shooting by at a tremendous rate of knots. Here we are again, into the latter half of the year...and I was just getting used to being back after Christmas. It's all very exciting, racing up to the day that dare not speak its name: yes, the b...
In the CORBA-based, service broker framework, the data that's required and shared among various heterogeneous systems is coordinated in a synchronized manner by a server process, yet maintained locally by each participating system.
Over the past year significant momentum has grown behind the unique intersection of two core Web platform technologies, Java and XML. Clearly, with Java emerging as the predominant Internet-system programming language and XML emerging as the dominant model for Internet data, these two ...
Three years ago, Cyrus InterSoft's founder and CEO, Scott Bayless and his team of developers decided to make Java deliver on its promise of platform independent network computing. They recognized the need for a simple, cohesive way to transparently tie together heterogeneous networks ...
