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 couple of good blog posts

Here's a couple of good blog entries I've enjoyed reading over the past few days - in case you missed them:

Warner is spot on when it comes to Tapestry's biggest problem. Let's hope Tapestry 5 is the end-all-be-all that Howard thinks it will be. As for Gavin's post, I like it because it's mostly true and the f-bomb makes it enjoyable to read. ;-)

Matt, what is your opinion of Tapestry 5, both the web framework and the IoC container? I'm playing with both lately and I'm loving it. :)

I've watched the screencasts that Howard has put together and I'm certainly intrigued. However, I don't believe it's as revolutionary as Howard thinks it is. Of course, I'd love to be proven wrong. As soon as it reaches release candidate status, I plan on upgrading AppFuse and AppFuse Light. Hopefully there's some sort of migration documentation. If not, I guess I'll be creating it. ;-)

I strongly suggest you to take a quick look at it. There's a Maven archetype that creates a bare-bones but useable Tapestry 5 application at People on the Tapestry users list are strongly interested in Tapestry 5 Core (the web framework), and I'm with them. On the other hand, Tapestry 5 IoC has some very good ideas and has even learned from Guice how to simplify some things about dependency injection. I wrote a working Hibernate-Tapestry-IoC integration module that does the same that the Spring one does in less than 10 hours, but simpler to use. I'm going to release it at soon.

"They need to stop treating a legacy schema as some immutable holy text handed down by God. " - Gavin
That is an awesome quote, I'm currently working with a legacy database and understand exactly where this quote comes from! Thanks for that, it was a good read.
