If there's one thing I dislike about summer, it is the fact that there isn't much news to share or talk about.

As announced on the Java EE 7 (more...)

It's been an amazing week. Being announced as a features speaker
put some more pressure as usual on me. But heading out to San Francisco for the second time this year was amazing. The typical hazels with a 10+ hour flight and immigration are easy to leave behind when you arrive in sunny and warm weather.
The inaugural DevNation

It's been a while since my last blog. I've obviously been busy with different things including my main job. After some more questions regarding the right choice for application servers cross my way it is the right time to pick this topic up again and share my thoughts.
One of the most read post on this blog is the post about which Java EE 6 application server
to choose. I've been looking at a bunch (more...)
