Current Projects


Why Comet?

See my opening post! The web is getting more dynamic and Comet is the answer.

Sources of Inspiration

The sources of perspiration in enterprise Java. Unneeded complexity is a bug.

Published Stuff

As you’d probably expect, too many blog posts and not enough pages of DWR documentation. But also, more randomly, some Nagios documentation, an article on static code analysis, an XML glossary, and from way back, an article on writing secure code.

Lifetime Accomplishments

Hmmm, if you can just wait there one tick, I’ll go and accomplish something and get back to you.
