Throwable.printStackTrace() for code comprehension

It’s been a while since I’ve been looking into Apache OpenEJB. With my recent affair with JAX-WS Web Services I thought I’d give it a try again. Not only would it help me understand the JAX-WS specification, but also would let me contribute to the project I’ve been in for a long time. I raised […]

Once you’ve made a selection, the fun begins – jQuery Fundamentals by Rebecca Murphey

jQuery fun has begun with my reading of jQuery Fundamentals By Rebecca Murphey or it may have been earlier when I’ve been told that jQuery is a monad, or maybe when I found out that JavaScript is a functional, object-oriented language. I can’t claim I know the answer, but I do like activities that let […]

Eclipse trick – drag projects onto a server in Servers view to deploy them

What a refreshing experience! While running a workshop about Java EE 5 development with IBM Rational Application Developer (RAD) 8.0.1 and IBM WebSphere Application Server V7 I stumbled upon a feature of RAD I had not even imagined might exist – it’s possible to deploy a EAR file/project in RAD onto WAS7 as simply as […]

Learning Clojure and JAX-WS at once – Clojure supports annotations, but JAX-WS doesn’t like it

While reading the redbook IBM WebSphere Application Server V7.0 Web Services Guide, I’ve stumbled upon JAX-WS javax.xml.ws.Endpoint class. It’s been a while since I worked with Clojure and since one of the selling points of dynamic languages like Clojure is their ability to boost prototyping to the maximum, a weird idea crossed my mind – […]

SOAP 1.2 over JMS in Rational Application Developer 8.0.1

People who wrote the SOAP 1.2 spec was very kind and provided a short introduction in SOAP Version 1.2 Part 0: Primer (Second Edition). I had a very pleasant reading and didn’t expect to learn it as easily and quickly. It was just before I was wondering whether to use the SOAP 1.2 or SOAP […]

Text Message off and No response returned in Generic Service Client gone

A problem – No response returned in Generic Service Client for EJB Web Services with JMS transport and its solution – Text Message option in IBM WebSphere JMS Transport Configuration should’ve been off. Easy, isn’t it? Didn’t they tell you to turn options on only when they’re really needed?! As the saying goes “Once burnt […]

No response returned in Generic Service Client for EJB Web Services with JMS transport

The Web Services course odyssey of mine continues. I’ve been able to learn about the product – IBM Rational Application Developer V8.0.1 a lot to a great surprise of mine and I don’t think the last day, tomorrow, will be different. It was that I had to teach the students how to use the tool […]

Self-made, preparation training for Test 000-371: Web Services Development for IBM WebSphere Application Server V7.0

The idea is to provide enough information for the students of the Warsaw University of Technology so they’re ready to pass the test which is the sole requirement for IBM Certified Solution Developer – Web Services […]

Date to numeral system conversion with Clojure

That’s really funny. While I was writing an email, I run into a problem how to convert a date – written according to Polish regulations as dd.mm.yyyy – as a number in a numeral system with the minimum base to accommodate the symbols. Say, I want to convert 22.02.2011 into a number in base 3. […]

Met RabbitMQ and said…rabbitmqctl status and stop afterwards

It all begun with the very concise article RabbitMQ & Clojure: Hello World. There was not much about Clojure, but the outcome was even more astounding than I anticipated – just a few minutes and I’ve got RabbitMQ installed that I was going to try out some day, but never got at it. Yet another […]
