Dave Johnson on open web technologies, social software and Java
Once upon a time a goose drank wine and a monkey chewed tobacco on the street car line.Thanks to the net, I now know that it was a jump-rope rhyme from around 1900. Big Daddy was born in 1911.
O'Reilly has started up an Open Source Java Directory - this is something that is really needed in the J2EE world, but sadly it looks very poorly implemented. I've been saying this should exist for a while now. Freshmeat is just too non Java (apologies - FM is cool, but if you're just looking for Java stuff it's a pain in the ass). I tried to convince Floyd at The ServerSide to create a directory but was sadly rebuffed. I hope it improves. Mike Cannon-BrooksTry the DMOZ Open Directory's Java category. DMOZ lists both open source and commercial products and lists the license of each (GNU, BSD-like, commercial, etc.). And Mike: last time I checked, Open Symphony projects were not listed there either.
