Posting from my phone!

So I can post during those long drives (If I was to type at say four letters a minute, I'd fill more than one text message).  Just to give you some scope of how long my drive to work is.  Cheers!

The switch to v2 over v3.

We had to downgrade to Glassfish v2.1.1 at work and I've been busy making sure everything is running smoothly. Our biggest issue (since I don't want to go on a rant about glassfish I'll just leave it at this issue) was the Java Web Start snafu. I know that the real problem lies with the JRE but we can keeping making workarounds on our Apache server and making custom JNPL's.

At any rate our requirement of JSF 2.0 was easily assuaged and I'd like to share that with you.

You can get all the information to install Mojarra v2.0.2 on Glassfish v2.1.1 form here.

Just follow those and you'll be able to deploy JSF 2.0 pages in no time!

UPDATE ON 7/21/2010:
Just so you know we're sticking with Glassfish v2.1.1 but the Glassfish 3.0.1 server has the issue pretty much fixed for most cases.

The upshoot with v2 is that we can actual take our three glassfish servers and have them talk to each other to keep everyone up to date!  Our v3 system had a cron, shell script, and NFS mount to do that but the v2 way is much better.

Apple will destroy you! Try not to be happy about how shiny your death will be.

Apple is the anti-Christ of computers. For years we all hated on Microsoft because they we're big bullies who try to take over everything. Now, don't get me wrong MS is evil, they will want you to use whatever they sell, but that have come to the conclusion that they can't control everything.

Enter Apple, they do believe that they can control everything, they will control how you get books on your iPad, they will control which book you have access to, they will control which apps you can buy, they will control how and when you can use said apps you just bought, they control what you can and can not do on the Internet, they control how you will use the Internet, they control how you have access to content, they control the content that you access...

I could go on forever, in short, it will be Apple's way or no way. It will be Apple's software or no software. In no way is Apple equal to a free market of any sorts and in every single way possible is Apple total vendor lock-in. Once you go Apple it is over, you no longer have *your* documents, you have access to *Apple's* documents.

This all come in the wake of Apple's latest move to destroy Google's platform, increase the operating cost of YouTube, lock out any Microsoft tools, destroy any sharing between KHTML devs and WebKit devs, and now their move to remove Adobe and Ogg from the Internet.

I know what most people would say, just don't buy Apple, good luck on getting that to work. I'm currently on the campaign (since I'm tired of Apple treating open source like a little redheaded bitch) to ensure that people I know don't buy Apple ever again. I ask anyone and everyone who believes in a open world of software to get the word out that Apple is the largest private company threat to everyone's freedom on the Internet. Apple, don't buy into it!
