The topic of this blog is "J2EE in Practice." I plan to use this space and your time to discuss issues of relevance to people who are developing applications using J2EE and related technologies. Any facet of application development is fair game: requirements gathering, architecture, design, coding, testing, deployment, maintenance, configuration management and version control, version migration, specifications and standards, agile development, and team organization are a few of the topics I can think of. We'll probably come up with more as time goes on. And of course I'll be discussing patterns and best practices for any of these topics whenever I can.
I'd like for this to be a discussion, not a sermon, so I'd appreciate your comments, especially when you have additional information that will be helpful to all of the readers.
When I need concrete examples, I'll draw on WebSphere Application Server and WebSphere Studio Application Developer, since these are the products I know and use.
Lastly, a disclaimer my fellow blogger Doug Tidwell applied to his blog applies to mine as well:
The stuff you read here is based on my own opinions and does not represent the view of IBM, its subsidiaries, its marketing and advertising agencies, its customers, or basically anyone with any sense anywhere. If you've been assuming this blog is corporate-approved content, you should check your medication.
Couldn't have said it better myself.
