Integrating Google Maps, Mule and ActiveMQ with AppFuse

Stephen Pasco has written a nice tutorial on how to integrate Google Maps, Mule and ActiveMQ with AppFuse.

Here's the scenario: Upon opening a Google map client, within a web browser, the user clicks on the map creating points (Figure 1). With each point created, a message is immediately sent to the ESB containing the point's longitude and latitude. A second, remote client instantly receives the sent longitude and latitude coordinates and displays them on a separate Google map (Figure 2). [Read More »]

Wireless in NYC

wireless in nyc What's worse than staying at a high-priced hotel and having to pay for internet access? Staying at an old NYC hotel where the free (wireless) internet access doesn't work. Even worse, there's a plethora of available networks nearby. 2/3 of them are protected, and the rest simply don't work with my Mac. I'm starting to get pretty frustrated with the wireless on this MacBook Pro - especially since it worked nearly *every time* on my old PowerBook. I should probably take it into the Apple Store next week. The strange part is I can get a connection just fine at my client and Starbucks. It's weird staying in a hotel room and not having internet access - especially when traveling for business.

Update: Strangely enough - when I got back to my room tonight, there was a new wireless connection and I got a full/fast connection. Go figure.

CSS Design Contest: Time to Vote

It's time to vote for the CSS Framework Design Contest! Counting votes and making sure everyone only votes once is always a challenge in these types of contests. I think the best way to ensure honesty is to have people send an e-mail to a mailing list. So here's how to vote:

  • Pick your favorite design from the entries.
  • Post an e-mail to with subject of "My CSS Design Contest Vote".
  • Vote for your favorite theme by putting "My favorite theme is XXX" in your e-mail.

Let the voting begin!
