Over 10 years ago, I wrote my first blog post. Since then, I've authored books, had kids, traveled the world, found Trish and blogged about it all.

A day of upgrades

I upgraded this site to the latest code from Roller's CVS, and I'm now running Tomcat 5.0.12 Beta. It seems to be working like a charm for FreeRoller so why not? I also upgraded to Eclipse M4 on OS X and WinXP. For those of you looking for a JSP Editor for Eclipse, try Lomboz. I'm using it and it seems to work fairly well. As far as I can tell, all it gives you is syntax highlighting. I tend to use Homesite or BBEdit for JSP pages - they're better HTML editors and always will be IMO. There never will be a "I can do everything" IDE, so why keep searching? Though it would be nice if someone would figure out code-completion for custom tag libraries.

All upgrades seem to have gone smoothly and backups were made in case they crap out.

Update: The Lomboz plugin sucks, at least with the latest Eclipse. Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V don't work ~ maybe that's a good thing...
