Java Management Interface, coming in 5.2 RC1

Mon 09 March 2009 By ismith

<p>This blog post would not have been possible without the diligent and thoughtful assistance of St&#xE9;phane Lacoin. Stephain gave me the big clues on how to configure the current Nuxeo 5.2 &quot;head&quot; to make all the JMX stuff &quot;turn on&quot; and also personally tracked down and squashed a number of bugs that made this article possible (including one in JBoss!). Somebody, please give that man a croissant!</p>

Nuxeo 5.2 Milestone 4 Feature: Conversions and Previews

Fri 06 February 2009 By ismith

<p>I decided to start off with the good stuff for this post. I couldn&apos;t really call this article, &quot;How you really don&apos;t need Microsoft Office anymore because the open source tools are good enough&quot; because I was afraid of Bill Gates. Or, to be more specific, I was afraid his <b>hired goons</b>; I would guess that he has the best goons money can buy, and lots of &apos;em! Anyway, if you haven&apos;t been following the <a href="http://marketing.openoffice.org/marketing_bouncer.html">progress of OpenOffice</a>, you should <a href="http://why.openoffice.org/">catch up on things</a>; the product has come a long way since of the ... <i>cough</i>, <i>ahem</i>.... &quot;rough&quot; builds of the early days. It runs really smoothly now, and being open source it&apos;s designed to allow other programs to leverage the great work that the Open Office (O-O) developers have done. (I am sure there is a climate-controlled cave somewhere for the poor slaves that toil away in anonymity on MS Office. I&apos;m sorry, to those folks, for their working conditions, but the good news is that their company is <a href="http://www.nytimes.com/2009/01/23/technology/companies/23soft.html">becoming more like other companies</a> now.)</p>

Learning Nuxeo (Book Draft): New Chapter: Running Nuxeo

Fri 06 February 2009 By ismith

<p>Today, I&apos;ve updated the <a href="http://www.nuxeo.org/static/book-draft/">book site</a> with <a href="http://www.nuxeo.org/static/book-draft/runningEP5.html">chapter 3</a> (really the second meat-n-potatoes chapter). This chapter explains a bit about how to run the Nuxeo server, how the Nuxeo server is related to JBoss and proposes some excercise for you to do to explore how to use Nuxeo. These exercises are probably &quot;old hat&quot; to folks with a lot of ECM experience, but if you are new to the genre you are likely to find them quite enlightening about how an organization can use the basic Nuxeo (and ECM) tech.</p>
