I received the CommuniCam today and it's not as bad as I expected. The pictures have horrible resolution when viewing them on the phone, but don't appear half bad on a computer screen. Granted, they definitely look like they're taken with a cheap digital camera, but that is what it is. I'm looking forward to using it tomorrow night, but I probably won't be able to post the pictures in real time. It's at Qwest in downtown Denver, and cell coverage sucks there. I know because Julie used to work in that building.
Now I just have to figure out how to upgrade my phone's firmware so I can get the zoom capability. I read it's possible on AT&T's forums last week, but can't seem to find the link.
More goodness from the struts-user list this afternoon. In reality, I don't know why I'm posting these as I'm not planning on reading them - maybe in hopes that some of you will find it interesting. Could be that I worked until 3:30 last night and got up again at 7. Red Bull at lunch and I feel like I got a full night's sleep!
Struts from Scratch
covers a Struts install from ground zero.
It provides detailed install and
configuration steps for a beginning Struts application. It comes with a
basic sample application and basic Ant build script (available for
download from http://www.strutskickstart.com).
Rick Reumann has put together a nice website with tutorials for learning Struts. From the struts-user mailing list:
I created a web site that walks new Struts users step by step
through the development of three VERY simple web applications in three
lessons. Each lesson adds a few more features so that they build upon
each other yet each stands alone such that if you follow the steps in
any lesson you'll have built a very basic application regardless of
which lesson you start with.
I created these because there seemed to be lacking some more recent
"walk through" Struts tutorials geared toward the very new Struts
developer. I think real newbies will find them especially useful, but
then again I could be way wrong:)
I'm considering the site a "beta" because I'm sure there will be some
mistakes. If anyone sees something I'm doing in a lesson that is way
off (or a very bad practice) please let me know. Some of the stuff I
know could be done in a more "best practice" way, but for the sake of
trying to also keep the lessons small and simple some ideas weren't
included (ie- I didn't use a constants interface for my forward
If anyone wants to contribute, reword, or add anything please let me
know. The site is there to help others. I got really lazy in a lot of
places and didn't say much about certain things that I would have liked
to. Hopefully over time the site will improve.
Struttin' with Struts:
Thanks Rick - looks very cool! I like the design too - nice work!
