Hey did you know that logging might be a good idea?
Lots of "how to log" posts around the intarwebz lately. Why? Is logging really that much of a dark art? Why would that be? What's so weird about logging that people get it so wrong?


Mirah - a Ruby-like syntax for Java
Found on dzone, Nick Plante pointed out Charles Nutter's Mirah project on the 25th of November. It's a Ruby-like syntax for java, and compiles directly to Java bytecode.


Why Java is being used for high-performance computing
Patrick Viry posted "Java for HPC (High-Performance Computing)" back in September (pointed out again on Dzone). It's kinda wierd because he says Java's fine for HPC but not if you use the standard libraries?


Open Languages are not required
Apache Foundation Blogger Greg Stein asserted that open languages are not required, that Java being potentially closed and proprietary to oracle is not a problem for java developers and users.

Comparing MySQL and Postgres 9.0 Replication
Robin Schumacher and Gary Carter, EnterpriseDB

Replication is one of the most popular features used in RDBMS's today. Replication is used for disaster recovery purposes (i.e. backup or warm stand-by servers), reporting systems where query activity is offloaded onto another machine to conserve resources on the transactional server, and scale-out architectures that use sharding or other methods to increase overall query performance and data throughput.

Should future versions of Java be backwards compatible? Devoxx says no
An informal survey from Devoxx says Java 8 or 9 should NOT be backwards compatible. I agree; people shouldn't be using old stuff, it's time to move on. What do you think?


Matt Raible compares web frameworks, Spring MVC wins
Matt Raible posted a slideshow from his preso at Devoxx, comparing web frameworks. Spring MVC won, although GWT and Ruby on Rails were right there with it. He's a struts snob so it wasn't even considered, and struts 2 was only okay.


Facing up to common architect-developer communications conundrums
In many IT organizations, software developers and enterprise architects seem to work at cross purposes. How do architects cut through the conflict? At Gartner's Application Architecture, Development & Integration Summit 2010, one analyst presented some practical ways of "making the twain meet."


SearchSOA.com coverage of the Gartner AADI Summit 2010
This year's summit takes a close look at three highly intertwined aspects of enterprise architecture -- SOA, the cloud and application overhaul. We gathered all our coverage of the Gartner AADI in one convenient location.
