Feelin' Groovy? In Paul Simon's song, The 59th Street Bridge Song(Feelin' Groovy), he tell us to "Slow down you move too fast, You got to make the moment last, Just kickin’ down the cobble stones, Lookin’ for fun and feelin’ groovy". Well, I for one don't want to slow down that often, especially when I am programming. I am always looking for fun, especially when I get to interact with great development teams. I am blessed with a wonderful family, work for a great company, and love what I do for a living, so I a...

Java vs C++ latest benchmark results.... Keith Lea says, "I was sick of hearing people say Java was slow, when I know it's pretty fast, so I took the benchmark code for C++ and Java from the now outdated Great Computer Language Shootout and ran the tests myself."   The results are available on his web site at http://kano.net/javabench/ in an HTML document titled “The Java is Faster than C++ and C++ Sucks Unbiased Benchmark “ The benchmarks that were run include the old standards: Ackerman, Fibonacci, Hash2, Hash, Heapsort, Matrix, M...

Hello from XP2004 in Garmisch Germany JBuilderX has a great Open Tools Api (OTA).  There are more than 500 tools and component libraries supporting the JBuilder underlying development platform framework.  I've known the JBuilder OTA for years now.  But I have done nothing with the Eclipse tools API. So, I am sitting in the “Contributing to Eclipse - Understanding and Writing Plug-ins” hands on tutorial at the Fifth International XP 2004 conference in Garmisch.  So far I have written a simple viewer plug-in.  Later, I'll extend it...
