Loadtesting on EC2 – in all cloud++

Recently at work, had a need to rerun some load-testing numbers, but got stick since our internal servers all had builds we were looking at, or weren’t setup, or yada, yada… so we turned to EC2, with overall pretty positive results. Some background – we build a web-based portal application that runs on a lightweight ...

Compiling Java 1.6 projects using Maven on Mac OS X

Compiling Java 1.6 projects using Maven on Mac OS X This makes much sense (took a few minutes though) had my JVM defaulted to JDK 5 from Eclipse 3.4 which wouldn’t run on the 64-bit Java 6 VM – easy fix though – personally I prefer changing the symlinks in /System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.Framework/ to point to the ...

Shooting myself in the foot w/maven:release

I was using mvn:release (release:prepare, release:perform) to release a number of modules today (for several hours – so much for speeding up through automation) but kept getting errors to the effect of: [INFO] Error deploying artifact: Authentication failed: Cannot connect. Reason: Auth fail [INFO] Error deploying artifact: Authentication failed: Cannot connect. Reason: Auth fail It ...

NYC-Sakai UG & Sakai 3 (and more)

Had the chance to meet up with some people from all around (NYU, Columbia, Marist, Zach and some others) last night in NYC to talk about all things including what sounds like some really exciting movement around Sakai 3. Was a great time, and real refreshing to see everyone again in person. Sadly I’m a ...

Recommended Programmer Reading

I was recently asked via email what training or whatnot I would recommend to bring a programming team up to speed on Java. A couple options come to mind – depending on the overall scope of your programming team and their past experience (if I can ask – what is your past experience?) but, I ...
