April 2014 Pre-Meeting Hangout

Hi everybody!

The AJUG April meeting is here - So why not miss traffic and spend some quality time before the meeting kicks off, networking with some other AJUG folks?

We will meet on today - Tuesday, April 15 around 5:30pm at La Botana Tex-Mex Restaurant. La Botana is located on the connector that runs parallel to I-285 on the same side of I-285 as the AJUG meeting location (Holiday Inn Select).

This is just a loose, informal time to hang out and get to know each other before we head over to the meeting for our monthly dose of mind-altering Java insights. Why waste an hour working late at the office before you head to AJUG?

Come join us for some good food, good beverages, and good fun.

Specifics for finding La Botana:

La Botana Tex-Mex Restaurant
2071 Savoy Dr. 
Atlanta, GA 30341
(770) 986-9996

You can find the Google map at: http://bit.ly/fBgiAq

I hope you can make it!

Cheers,

Gunnar

Javahelp replacement?

We are late adding help to our Java applets (other than tooltips).
Javahelp seems to be obsolete.  What is the recommended replacement?
I am evaluating XMLmind for DocBook.  XMLmind can convert to
Web Help, Javahelp, PDF, etc.

Job Board Site

I see the job board site is still down. Is there anything anyone can do to help? 

I'm surprised this list is so quiet. How many members are on it anyway? I thought there would have been a little buzz about Java 8.

Hope everyone is doing well. Happy Monday, everyone!

Re: Question regarding MTFS - Support for Java.

Thanks for the quick reply Shannon. I now there is a Eclipse plugin for TFS. But I want to know from a developer standpoint in terms of Integrated source control inside the IDE, Build automation (Maven), testing etc.

I want to know how much TFS helps Java developers in these areas?

Thanks and Regards,
Sivakumar.

In regards to your  MTFS post to AJUG..

I've used it with Eclipse at one previous project.  It has very solid integration into Eclipse, so it feels no different than using any other vcs platform (Git, Subversion, etc..)

As a developer, it was just a tool.. It had a command console, much like the early days of Git, and I found myself using that often. I didn't notice anything really different in regards to running .NET vs Java source- it simply pulls it down, and handles the version control. 

I don't know if there is a JetBrains plugin.. so if you are an IDEA shop, you may find it difficult transitioning to eclipse. 

You can get some more info on the eclipse plugin here:  http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/gg490751

Best of luck,

HI,
My company is planning to use Microsoft Team Foundation Server for one of our new project lineup.
Since my company has both Dotnet based and java based applications, both developers need to use this. 

My management is asking me how much Java developers can use this and they want to know the real difficulties for Java developers in using this. 

Please let me know if any of the AJUG members have real time experience in using this.

Thanks in advance.

Regards,
Sivakumar

Java 8 Release Tomorrow: March, 18 2014!

So, the new JDK/JRE (Java 8, for those who are somehow in the dark about this) will be released tomorrow,
March 18. Is anyone excited? I’m kind of doing a little happy dance as I’ve been looking forward to
this, in the way only a geek can get excited about such things, for years.

I’m asking everyone to download and compile your first “Hello World!” app with the release version
of Java 8 tomorrow. 

This is a huge update for us, huge:

Check out those lambdas! 
Check out the virtual extension methods!
Check out the additions to the Collections/Maps (Streams)!
Check out the new Date/Time API (Joda will be one less dependency)!

There is more, take a peek: http://openjdk.java.net/projects/jdk8/features

I just want people to get excited about it so we can prepare to push our businesses and developers forward
with the new, more enabling Java.
