Let's Hibernate Toplink

I recently read TopLink: 10 Years of Persistence on and I still think that Toplink is not the tool form me. As some of my readers ( :-) ) know I'm a Hibernate zeloth. To be a zeloth is not a good thing at all, but after testing almost every JDO implememntation and get tired of huge JDBC code writing hibernate almost saved my life. I have tested also Toplink. I got not the skill nor the time to make a Hibernate vs Toplink Article and so I will make only a simple consideration. Toplink has been out for ten years that is a huge period in this "framework-age". Got it out Oracle products? I mean Are there any market ruler sw that uses Toplink? Ask yourself the same things about Hibernate

Things to do. Services to use


After reading Alex Toussaint's Blog post I thought that planning is everiting and so this is my "Things to do. Services to use"

  • Finish read the J2EE Architect handbook (pdf version)
  • Read JSR 170
  • Prepare some Hibernate magic to show at Brescia Java User group
  • Update the layout of my Bloggerman Project' blog
  • Buy a Firefox t-shirt
  • Buy Mac Os X for Java Geeks from O'Reilly
  • Buy stuff at and build some arrow for the December Archery Contests

These items should be a sample of a tipical, in my opinion, thechy, --Java Geek-- //TODO list.. maybe some Star Trek is missing...

Now post yours!

JSF and JSTL: I got the clue

Finally I understood the true meaning of using jstl an jsf. I'm writing this to the one that, like me, aproched custom tag in "the servlet way". I found that tag tecnolgy gives his best if used with a sort of reuse paranoia in mind.
I gave myself.. and going to propose to the team, these rules:

  • Check the Standard taglib before writing something in a jsp
  • Check the company taglib before writing something in a jsp
  • Check the Jakarta taglib before writing something in a jsp
  • Everything longer than 10 lines of code in a JSP should be placed in an include jsp (and maybe parametrized: jsp:param do exist!)
  • Everything longer than 10 lines of code in a JSP should be placed in a new tag of the company taglib (or maybe is a businees method!)

Maybe these rules are oblivious for the most of you... but I'm working very hard in refactoring hugly jsp.

Pause is over... back to work!
