What if…

… Sun Microsystems had been bought by a different company. How would the new certification names sound.

It used to be Sun Certified Java Programmer, now Oracle Certified Professional Java Programmer, cool isn’t it. Through in those shouting red colors and you can be seen a mile away.

Now what if Sun was bought by other companies;

  • Google Certified Java Geek – you’ve got to be kidding, is it still in beta
  • IBM Certified Java Development Professional for the Java 5 Platform – it would expire 🙁
  • RedHat Certified Engineer for Java – where is my clibboard, the wooden one
  • I will be adding more as i discover them, add yours via the comments

    Generating an EAR project for enterprise application

    I’m migrating a J2EE 1.3 application to JEE5, from Ant to Maven. I couldn’t find a simple archtype that would allow me create a simple and clean directory structure like the one below. All the existing ones add a lot on directories which frankly i failed to comprehend (maven newbie). Another solution would have been to create a parent project and create modules.

    JEE5 project structure

    I stumbled upon javaee5-maven-archetype which allowed me to create exactly what i was looking for. I have a simple project structure thats easy to build (and break, and fix). It has a some batteries included 😉 Download it, install into you local repo, you are good to go. See Usage
