No Fluff Just Stuff is pleased to announce the Southern Virginia Software Symposium, Aug. 24 - 26, 2007. Catch these Featured Sessions Behavior-driven development in Java by Andrew Glover Behavior-driven development, or BDD, has attracted a lot of attention a la RSpec in the Ruby community, but BDD's roots stem from JBehave, a Java based framework. In this session, we'll look at what BDD is and how it shifts the traditional testing vocabulary from being test-based to behavior-based. Effective Concurrent Java by Brian Goetz The Java programming language has turned a generation of applications programmers into concurrent programmers through its direct support of multithreading. However, the Java concurrency primitives are just that: primitive. From them you can build many concurrency utilities, but doing so takes great care as concurrent programming poses many traps for the unwary. NetKernel : XML Processing for the 21st Century by Brian Sletten A wise man once said, "XML is like lye. It is very useful, but humans shouldn't touch it." If you've had to incorporate XML into your project by hand, you have probably been burned by getting too close. NetKernel turns this wisdom on its head and encourages you to use XML like the liquid data stream you want it to be. Imagine the simplicity of REST married to the power of Unix pipes. Come see how this open source / commercial product built on a compelling modern architecture can be used to create, manipulate and transform XML. [...]
