EJB 3.1 New Features Sneak Peek

Reza Rahman has posted the 4th part of a articles series about "New Features in EJB 3.1" upcoming EJB jsr that will be part of JEE 6.0 jsr.
This part 4 is focused on the Web Beans jsr, something you could already taste with Seam Framework as Gavin King and Bob Lee are co-leading this specification.
As of this 4th part I was feeling like home since I was following Seam since 1.1 days even thought I didn't got time to deeply dig into Bob's Guice.
All I've seen is pretty nice and would make JEE devs life easier. But still I have minor enhancements (I'll be emailing the EG about) I would like to see incorporated into those jsr's :
  • For POJO components DI, I'd like to see @Singleton annotation (for the singleton class) along with @Factory (for the getInstance() method) . Thought those are already present in Guice. A good usage would be ease of migration for legacy code since one would have just to decorate the existing classes to get them into a JEE 6 compliant application.
  • Out of box integration with Bean Validation jsr.
  • And yes I want the Interceptor thing into the whole JEE stack. It's a neat way to get Aspects right into JEE.

And Long Life Duke!

positive feedbacks about My JMaki Widget Creator

I've got very positive feedbacks about my work on the JMaki Widget Creator NetBeans plugin on dev mailing list:

Am really excited my work got appreciated and now looking to expend more on that code base in the directions suggested in the above discussion so it could benefit the hole community and hardening my knowledge in those areas.
I'll be signing Sun Contributor Agreement and working on this bit of code to get it to achieve the required functionalities.

More to come in near future I hope...

JMaki widget creator Netbeans Plugin

In a process of learning both JMaki and Netbeans plugin development, I come out to create a simple Netbeans plugin that register a new Netbeans project type "JMaki widget" and both two project templates (an empty widget and a sample widget).

Am looking for suggestions about uses cases for this plugin, how to provide a visual editor for the widget.json file, validate this file with json validator as pointed by Carla Mott in the mailing list.

Take a look at those screenshots and give me your feedbacks:
