Distribute application with Ant

July 30th, 2008

Hi guys,

yesterday I spent some of my time looking for a tool to make a better distribution of our java application. No, I’m not talking about a java installer or something else, but only a way to distribute our internal tools in a single jar.

In the paste I’ve used Uberjar with maven but now I’m using ant and after a lot of try I choose One-Jar; but it works only with ant, probably the best solution is to try a way that work with maven too. Have you a suggest for me? :D

A not so happy Easter

March 27th, 2008

Hi, Saturday 22 I’d had a crash with my motorbike. A man in a car changed his lane and I cannot was able to dodge it. The result was a fall to the ground without any serious damage for me and my girlfriend (a lot of contusions for both), thanks to our equip; but the bike was not well, probably the chassis is deformed and there are a lot of other issues (like front suspension, radiator and many parts). I’m sad for it but happy for our skin and bones ;) .

Here a lof of crash’s and bike’s photo.


2008 Startup

February 1st, 2008

Hi, as usual I don’t blog so much, so I’m here to write about some last news.
From Jan 14th I don’t work anymore with Sourcesense, now I work with Phiware, a young and funny company placed in Lugano. It was sad for me go away from Pronetics/Sourcesense after many years together, but this is the life…
My hosting (Aruba) sucks, I’m planning to move on Servage, if you want to suggest me another please add a comment.

Last news

October 25th, 2007

Hi people,
in the last months I was very busy and the time for blogging was not so much, so now I force myself to write a little resume:

  • from May I work with HippoCMS, this is a Cocoon based CMS and use WebDAV (Slide) for content’s storage. After this time working on it I can say that the product is good and simple, optimal for a non-too-much-complex site and with a good and friendly user interface.
  • during August I work for a little project in RoR; I never wroted any ruby line before that and the curiosity for this framework was very high. After all my impression is that RoR is a really good framework for creating little site with many CRUDs, but the sintax not make me enthusiast and the not so strictly rules put a lot of confusion into my brain.
  • for my holiday I was in Sharm el Sheikh, the travel was not expansive (yeah, a really last minute on the web), I made many snorkeling sessions and it was really, really, really spectacular. I hope to came back there sooner or later.
  • this year the annual CocoonGT was made in Rome, the venue was the wonderful Bioparco, that was a funny week and many thanks go to the main promoters (Sourcesense, Semeru, Hippo). Here you can browse some photo.
  • in the last 3 weeks I cannot browse anymore my photo album, I receive a strange Fatal Error by php but I cannot see any error into the logs. My provider does not support me so much :( and I don’t have so much time to investigate furthermore.

Ping world…

May 31st, 2007

As usual I don’t write so much as I want. So I’m here for ping the world and say “Hey guy, I’m alive!”.
Finally I’ve terminated my work in Lugano, and from the 17th May I was in my office. Now I’m working
on a project based on HippoCMS, a full featured CMS wroted with Cocoon.

I’m still alive…

March 21st, 2007

Yes, I know, I don’t blog from a lot of time, but in the last months I don’t have much time…
From 15th January I was in Lugano for follow an interesting project based on Cocoon framework with a very nice AJAX client.
During this project I tried to port some flowscript to Javaflow, but in Cocoon 2.1 the Javaflow implementation is not complete and the are some boring issues. So the porting was put in pause, waiting for a official 2.2 release.
In the meanwhile we need some features like the possibility to load some selectionlist values into CForms widgets during the bind (not at declaration time). For this I wrote two components that during the bindLoad() phase load into the widget the model’s collection

<fb:selectionlist-value id=”l-country” path=”detail/country/id”>
<fb:selection-list path=”allCountries” value=”id” label=”name”/>

I think that this can be a common issue, so I will clean the code and contribute it.
