Java EE and .NET Interoperability

This book is aimed at practising Java and .NET developers, at a fairly novice level, who want to take advantage of the strong points of each of the two platforms in a single applications environment. It also aims to be suitable for IT architects and managers needing an overview of what Java and .NET integration technologies are available. It is not a detailed programmer’s cookbook, nor a collection of interoperability design patterns.

Creative Commons revisions face same challenges as GPL

After the GNU General Public License (GPL), the Creative Commons License (CCL) is probably the most popular open source license now in use. Yet, while the writing of version 3.0 of the GPL has been widely covered in the media, the current revisions to the CCL have received little attention from the press -- nor have the drafters of the two licenses consulted each other. All the same, the CCL 3.0 revision has many of the same priorities as GPL 3.0, including increasing the clarity of the language, internationalizing the language, and addressing issues about digital rights management (DRM).

Interpreting a software license

Is a glass half full or half empty? This eternal question sums up the challenge of interpreting a software license. So how does one avoid the pitfall of a wrong interpretation? Here is my thumb rule — never ignore the spirit in which the software license was created in the first place.

The futility of the GPLv3 debate

Some say "if you don't like the fact you can't run a modified version of TiVo linux on a TiVo, then don't buy a TiVo, you're still free to take your modified version and install it on something else". This is very flawed reasoning. Hardware and software are not separate. TiVo linux is meant for running on a TiVo.

Going live, part 2: Introducing Musix and Studio To Go

In this week's entry we'll look at two more"live" CDs of Linux systems optimized for multimedia creation and performance. I've been having a great time with these systems, and I hope that my mini-profiles inspire you to try them all. They're a great way to introduce someone to Linux, they show off the system optimized for multimedia performance and they provide a wealth of high-quality sound and music software to exploit that system. They all include the standard cornucopia of applications for the mundane tasks, word processing, text editing, graphics, networking, and so on. All that, for the cost of a download and a disc.

A New JRuby Interview and More

Okay, non-interview stuff first. I've recently picked up several'shortcuts' fromO'Reilly andAddison-Weseley. I love this format. For about 10 bucks, you can get a PDF only copy of a 50-100 page"book". The shortcuts (so far at least) have been very focused, which allows them to cover a reasonable topic in sufficient depth without creating a monstrous 600+ page tome. The shortcuts I've looked at so far have been timely, useful, and a great value. October marks the beginning ofApress' push into Ruby and Ruby on Rails. Apress also hasPractical OCaml coming out soon to help soothe your inner functional programmer. Now, on to interview news!
