NEWS FROM THE COMMUNITY

* Talk about your project at JavaOne

Java.net will be running mini-talks on projects in the java.net
community during JavaOne. The talks will be about 20 minutes long
and will occur in the java.net Community Corner in the JavaOne
Pavillion. We will have a plasma display and seating for the
audience. So, if you have a project at java.net and you would
like to talk about it or maybe run a demo of your project at
JavaOne, all you need is to propose it in the Community Corner
Wiki (http://wiki.java.net/bin/view/Javaone/CommunityCorner). If
you are not familiar with theWiki, please, send me the JavaTools
Community leaders an e-mail and we can help you with it.

You can read more about the mini-talks in Daniel Brookshier's
Blog
(http://weblogs.java.net/blog/turbogeek/archive/2005/05/javaone_communi.html)
.

We have two graduations this week: projects JetNuke and SwingUnit
released their first versions and left the incubator. Check them
out at Graduations section.

Even if you don't want to run a mini-talk, but you are going to
JavaOne, don't forget to add your name to our Wiki
(http://wiki.java.net/bin/view/Javatools/JavaOne2005) page.

We hope to see many JavaTools project owners at JavaOne!

If you have questions or suggestions, feel free to contact the
leading team of the JavaTools Community:

TOOLS OF THE WEEK
* COOL TOOLS
      - Some of the coolest Java Development Tools -
SomnifugiJMS
   https://somnifugijms.dev.java.net/
SomnifugiJMS is an implementation of JMS that works inside a
   single JVM to send JMS Messages between Threads. Somnifugi is
   particularly useful for isolating the awt Thread so that the
   user interface will stay lively, for decoupling calls to
   slower external resources such as database connections, and
   for speeding up implementations of generic JMS clients by
   placing decoupled JMS clients in the same JVM. SomnifugiJMS is
   built on top of the JDK 5 concurrency kit. It should work with
   the JDK 1.4 backport of this kit, but I have never tried that.
   You will need a copy of the jms.jar file and a JDK 5 VM to use
   walend-somnifugi.jar. The Somnifugi project includes
   JMSBridge, two simple classes that bridge one JMS
   implementation to another.
* TINY TOOLS
      - Small tools that make your developer life easier -
Nully
   https://nully.dev.java.net/
Nully is a tool which provides automated edit-time,
   compile-time, and run-time checks for illegal null values,
   utilizing Java 5.0 code annotations.
* GREAT IDEAS
      - Incubated projects that you should look at -
Jndi-Explorer
   https://jndi-explorer.dev.java.net/
This plug-in implements JNDI exploring capability for Eclipse
   version 2

---------------------------------------------------------------------

TOOLS TIPS
- Tips on how to use java.net resources and how to participate of
   the JavaTools Community -
* How to create classes using Eclipse IDE
The Eclipse Tutorials(https://eclipse-tutorial.dev.java.net/)
   projects teaches this week how to create classes using Eclipse
   IDE. See the visual tutorial
   (https://eclipse-tutorial.dev.java.net/visual-tutorials/part4.html)
   .

NEWS FROM PROJECTS
- News and important milestones from projects at JavaTools -
* * Simple Log 1.6 Released
Simple Log(https://simple-log.dev.java.net) 1.6 has been released.

NEW TOOLS
- New projects that joined JavaTools last week -
* jCardExpress (GUI tool based on Sun's Java Card Development Kit)
     https://jcardexpress.dev.java.net/
JCardExpress provides developers with an easy way to create and
   test their Java Card Applets by guiding them with the help of
   simple wizards. The GUI generates all the necessary configuration
   files so you can test your applets before installing them on the
   smart card.
* NightRun (NightRun Report Table)
     https://nightrun.dev.java.net/
NightRun Report Table is a project that, even though starting with
   MySql, it will try to be compatible with all databases. The idea is
   to use the "Procedure" and "View" ideas present in some databases
   and extend it to others for better performance and all the
   adavantages that they provide.
