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.

My Development Environment

To make is easier for folks to use AppFuse and Struts Resume, I put together a page for HowTo Configure your Development Environment. This is how I've configured my environment and it works pretty darn well for me. Really, none of the document is AppFuse specific - it just shows where I put J2SE, J2EE, Ant, Tomcat, and how to setup your environment variables. Comments or other suggestions are welcome.

Your checklist forgot an important step - setting up a Mother Of All Resources. Mine is at - it has the documentation for every major and most minor packages I use. The javadoc for all jar files, the documentation for all services (apache, postgresql, etc.) and basically anything else I think I might ever need, all in one location. It saves a lot of searching, and is blindingly fast since it's local.
