Eclipse 2.0.1 Released!

It is now available on the Eclipse download page at I received a reply from the eclipse-dev mailing list today with some hints for OS X - noticed that 2.0.1 was out, and updated all my machines (Win/Linux/OSX) with ease. For Jaguar, You can find the latest "inofficial" build here. It worked great for me. If you already have 2.0 installed, you should be able to update your installation via the Update Manager.

Upgrading to Struts 1.1?

My opinion is "of course!" But that's party due to the fact that I'm an upgrade-happy developer. I'll upgrade just to be on the bleeding edge and know that I'm not missing anything. However, I do end up "backing out" of some upgrades. It's fun though, how else are you going to learn? has a new article discussing if you should upgrade to Struts 1.1 - check it out. I'm on the nightly build.

Java Server Faces Public Draft and EA download is available. I saw this last night, but Rick Salsa beat me to the punch on weblogging it. I was hoping to download and play around with it today, and give my opinion, but alas, the release I'm doing is taking a bit longer than expected.

Web Builder Conference 2002. Is anyone else going? We're having a Annual Shareholders Meeting in Vegas the weekend before, and I'm going to attend the conference the following week (Sept. 9 - 11). It'll be my first "reporting" experience, so watch this site for updates/reviews. I was one of the first to register so I'll have wireless internet access throughout the conference. My 3 goals for the experience are (1) win, (2) have fun, and (3) get some roller development done. Of course, if I'm accomplishing #1, then #2 is taken care of and #3 might slip a little. Vegas Baby!

Update on Netscape 7. It sucks worse than I originally thought - it installed on my WinXP box, but won't run - similar to OS X 10.2. The one successfull install? On Red Hat 7.3.
