Blogging, and some links

Ok, I admit it, before I started surfing around the SDN I had only heard of ‘weblogs’ and ‘blogging’ and never read a single blog. But after I discovered the concept here, I quickly found more things that have become part of my regular coffee break reading. Here are a few – be warned, though, that if you are a blogging and Java newbie like me these links may cost you quite a bit of time and teach you a lot as you read (especially the last one). blogs: The weblog community at is very Java oriented and fun to read. There are very technical items with tips and tricks for various tools, standards and programming techniques (like a [original link is broken] [original link is broken] [original link is broken] [original link is broken] [original link is broken] [original link is broken] [original link is broken], or a very neat summary and critique of the new 2.4 servlet specification that I found through a short The Workbench Concept).

There are discussions about programming techniques and tools (like Updated!: Calling a BSP application from a SAPGui Transaction and Troubleshooting for Java Developers about debugging) that could also take place in any SAP coffee corner. There are contributions to the more ‘political’ debates like the eternal Java vs. .Net thing, the recent NetBeans/Eclipse issue between Sun and IBM and more – usually with enough content (as opposed to raving) to be interesting.

And there are some nice contributions to take home, like Metrics of Influence Panel Additions and Did ABAP Objects Fail as a Whole? about teaching Java to adults and kids.

Oh, and as I was diving into this blogging world I also discovered a nice online service to collect blogs from different RSA feeds without the hassle of installing software locally, and through I discovered a great collection of ‘Java theory and practice’ articles introducing basic Java and J2EE concepts. Those articles will keep me reading and learning for some more time, I guess.
