One of my friends from work is now in CERN and working on the biggest accelerator in the world but for IT side. Here he puts his daily thoughts and observations. I hope he is not disappointed of anything. It’s Switzerland and he has account in the Leonardo’s Da Vinici’s Code bank :)  Wojtek Jurewicz at CERN

That is an amazing comparison of all that voodoo magic going behind the scene. All we know the most important is marketing! When you may sell yourself for a better price than it’s great!

Last week I participated Agile Warsaw meeting. There was amazing presentation called “Distributed Agile” run by Piotr Modrzyk. He revealed his experience gained while working on sprezentuj.pl in distributed environment. He showed the mechanism of kanban methodology in practice and motivational payment system that was really awesome and I am sure I would hire him as PM to any running project:)

Another amazing news is video James Gosling on Apple, Apache, Google, Oracle and the Future of Java very interesting movie, I recommend indeed.

This week there will be  73. spotkanie Warszawa JUG – Andrzej Salwicki z “O obiektach aktywnych, obcym wołaniu metod takich obiektów i problemie otwartym?” The speaker is a professor so topics seems to highly abstractive and educational. Get ready for higher level.

Next week I am going to see another Agile Warsaw group meeting. There will be two guys from famous polish online communicator sharing their experience from working on telecommunication issues :)  (More interesting for me cuz I do amazing stuff for one polish mobile operators)

ETL plugin for openESB for small data migration project is awesome. I don’t know how would it work for small data warehouse issue where you get 4 gb of data daily. Maybe fine. But for other small migration project it does the job just fine and first of all it’s amazingly easy to setup. I think that blind dog of one friend of mine could make a project with this tool. There is just one mistake in the last GlassfishESB version 2.2. This plugin forget to set two variables. You must put them by hand in:
files/nbproject/project.properties (add at the end, mine two entries with path would look like)

o.n.soa.libs.wsdl4j.dir=C:/GlassFishESBv22/netbeans/soa2
xml.validation.dir=C:/GlassFishESBv22/netbeans/xml2

After that the project is ready to be build and generates wsdl file required for another operations: like including in business process or putting just inside composite application.
