Interview with Arun Gupta

Arun Gupta published his book “Java EE 6 Pocket Guide”. I asked him some questions about this book and his intentions. The full interview is published by JAXenter [1]. Maybe they will publish the original English version on their English site too.


Interactive book list

Its not really ready, the interactive book list containing my reviews. Anyhow, I decided to go online with a kind of preview: Developed as JSF-Application using NetBeans, I’ll report about the internals. The first of this series was my last article about a simplified language switcher. More will follow.

NetBeans 7.1 and more

I blogged last article apx. 2 month ago. I announced an application which shall maintain my book list. At this time, the NetCAT game startet: Community members were requestes to test the upcomming version. It took a lot of my time and I could discover some bugs which had been fixed and could contribute some ideas for enhancements, especially for web development. Thanks to the NetBeans team, but also the community and the NetCAT team, the upcomming version contains richer functionality and gets more and more “round” due to little but helpful details.
The NetCat game is over now. NetBeans 7.1 will be published soon. And me, I’m going to continue on the announced project, as well as writing reviews and articles…

Reviews online

After some of my write-ups had been published by diverse magazines, one publisher send me a note that they puplished a review online too. Recently I discovered some more of my reviews published in the web. What a pitty! I had not been informedsurprise.

Since these reviews are written in German I first linked my German pages to these reviews. You may open the book menu and switch to German. The English pages will be updated as soon as I get some time to do it.


I just finished my write-up of HTML5 (Klaus Förster & Bernd Öggl, Addison-Wesley). It will be published by the Linux Magazin, which published my review of HTML5 (Pilgram, O'Reilly) too.

Take a look at my menu. You'll find Books. This list of my reviews will be comleted (with current state, apx. 40 reviews) probable this week.
