Some of you knew me way back when I started the domain name "javageeks.com". Obviously, it's been a while since I updated that site, and in fact, if you go try to read some of the papers there, you'll get redirected to "neward.net", which has been on hiatus ever since the ISP there decided that my use of JSP was somehow trashing their server. (This is what happens when college students run an ISP in the spare time, I guess.)
Anyway, for a variety of reasons, I've since decided that my online presence should coalesce into one place, this domain (tedneward.com), and I've been slowly moving things over to this site in recognition of that fact. As a result, a bunch of the papers that I'd put up for reading on javageeks.com are now here on tedneward.com, in the "Writing" section of the website.
For those of you too tied to RSS to go visit the site itself, here's a list of the papers I've moved over thus far:
- Using the Boot Classpath
- Finding Loaded Classes
- Using Java Policy
- When is a Static Not Static?
- Multiple Java Homes
- X-Power: Using XML to Write Papers
It's not the complete list, since I'm also (trying to) move the authoring format over from my own home-grown XML+XSLT system into DocBook, but that means either developing an XSLT to transform my home-grown format into DocBook, or else just manually switching them over. I'm not convinced yet which is the faster way to go. :-)
Part of it isn't just transmuting their form, though. Some of them could use with a touch of updating (such as the Java Policy one--there's been a few changes there since I wrote that paper, back in Java 1.2 days), so I think I'm going to have to labor through and transform and update them manually. Still, it could be worse: I could have written them in Lotus Ami Pro....
