Object Computing, Inc. - Java News Brief - December 2002: J2SE 1.4 New IO API: "Log Parsing Application: In this section, we will look at a log parsing utility that interprets and gathers instrumentation data and generates statistics. The initial version is resource intensive in terms of memory and CPU time. This will be compared to a modified version that uses some of the NIO facilities."

Carp Bait Recipes
Fish Ontario! | Articles | Carp Advanced ledger rigs: "The hair rig is another carp-centricity developed by Europeans. Rather than placing bait directly on the hook, it's threaded onto a small tail of line. This allows carp to taste or otherwise inspect a bait without the risk of it detecting the hook. When the fish decides to inhale the bait, destined for powerful grinding teeth at the back of the throat, the hook follows behind. With the hook's gap and point fully exposed, ejecting it is difficult for fish."
Fish Ontario! | Articles | Carp fishing comes of age in Ontario: "The handful of secretive carp anglers when I started decades ago guarded their bait recipes, but I soon pried out of them that they were using 'doughballs,' made of boiled cornmeal and oatmeal, laced with other cereal grains and 'secret' scents, usually vanilla or anise. But corn and rolled up soft bread also caught carp."

Implementing Transaction Suspension in Spring RAD That Ain't Bad: Domain-Driven Development with Trails Web Services Messaging with Apache Axis2: Concepts and Techniques: "Until recently, web service interactions were solely synchronous and request-response in nature. However, it soon became clear that the synchronous request-response type of interaction is a very small subset of messaging scenarios. Messaging is very important in constructing loosely coupled systems, and as a result, this limitation is critical. Web service specifications, such as WS-addressing and WSDL, have incorporated the concepts of messaging, and lay the foundation to cover a wider range of messaging scenarios. The Apache Axis2 architecture assumes neither one message exchange pattern, nor synchronous/asynchronous behavior. This article explains messaging concepts and how Axis2 can be used to implement several well-known messaging scenarios"

Drawing arbitrary GIS data on Google Maps | "I just added ZIP-code browsing to A novel thing about it, from a technical standpoint, is that the ZIP code maps (example) display a blue border around the relevant area, so you can tell where the ZIP code begins and ends. I did this using free GIS data from the City of Chicago. That data defines each ZIP code in the city and its spatial boundaries. The data comes in standard SHP (shapefile) format, which I imported into PostgreSQL using its excellent PostGIS spatial-database package. PostGIS handles the conversion of the shapefile data to longitude and latitude points in the projection that Google Maps uses."

I found a way with my SpiritWave provider to do that--I just wait for SubscribtionEvent , but I think this will not work if I change to another JMS provider.: "Typically, a pub/sub system is designed specifically to decouple publishers from subscribers, so that your publishers don't have any knowledge of the subscribers. If your producers really need to know specifics about consumers, pub/sub might not be the right model." & jGuru: What else is missing from JMS?!: "Administration & Error, or system event, notification & Load balancing, scalability & Low-level transport protocol & Security" Developing a Simple JMS Example: "The Chat Application" & JMS and the Enterprise: "JMS is often exclusively associated with in house chat applications, newsgroups, and notification services." & Designing Messaging Solutions using JMS: "A common pub/sub application example is a chat room. Each of the participants subscribes to the topic (the chat room). As messages are published to the topic (note that the client is often both a publisher and a subscriber), they are delivered to each of the subscribers." & Articles: Peer-to-Peer: From JMS to Project JXTA Part 1: Shall we chat?: "This section contains instructions on how to create and run a simple JMS chat program.

Merlin brings nonblocking I/O to the Java platform: "The principal force behind the design of NIO is the Reactor design pattern. Server applications in a distributed system must handle multiple clients that send them service requests. Before invoking a specific service, however, the server application must demultiplex and dispatch each incoming request to its corresponding service provider. The Reactor pattern serves precisely this function. It allows event-driven applications to demultiplex and dispatch service requests, which are then delivered concurrently to an application from one or more clients."
