The Qt dictate

So it is pretty apparent that I haven't been updating this blog in a while.  The reason for this is that we are going through a period where we are converting MS Access files into full fledged applications.

Now MS Access is fine and what not, but after a certain point, it can get a bit abused.  That point was crossed some time ago in my company that I work for.  So what are we switching to?  Not Java, no that would have been too awesome.  However, I can't say that I am really down about what platform we are going with.  We are going to be using Qt!  Qt 5 to be exact.

I'm a bit thrilled to be tasked to start working back in my favorite language, C++.  Not only that, Qt 5 supports many of the most recent additions to the C++ language.  I can hardly wait to start digging in.

I'm going to pick back up on the JSF tutorial here in a bit.  The next step it looks like was a read/write JSF managed bean.  So I'll do a quick run through of that, but I doubt that I'll have the namesapces match up with what they were in the previous post.

I don't fully remember where I was going with all of the JSF stuff, but I guess after the Read/Write thing, moving into AJAX in JSF.
