Xmas gift from Amazon

This year, Amazon made me a special gift. Instead of sending yet another coffee mug, they finally listed my JBoss book. Unfortunately, the nice cover graphics that you can see at the publishers page is not yet shown.
I am really looking forward to hold the real printed issues in my hand. Until then there is still some work to do.

Busy time

It's now over a month since my last post. I was just too busy to even read the Xdoclet and JBoss mailing list or even work on those projects. We had an important release at work which ate quite some time.

The other day I was asking are fop and batik dead? Meanwhile there is a new Apache subproject Xmlgraphics that seems to be the new umbrella for the new projects. But currently its mostly an empty shell.

With the release at work I am also not able to attend Javapolis conference in Antwerp and am so jealous about all the lucky ones that were ablt to go there.
