Netbeans & mySQL Integration Demo @ Technovate 08

Technovate 08, the second annual Sun CxO showcase was held in Aug 08 at Grand Hyatt Mumbai, see the NDTV coverage here.

I presented a live demo on the nebeans and MySQL seamless integration. Basically, on the stage I created an Entity Enterprise Java Beans from a simple MySQL hosted table, followed by a JSF CRUD application created from the generated entity. And, all without a single line of coding !!!

Sun Open Source Workshop at Amity Innovation Incubation on 01 March 08

Wonder Why Pople Love Sun

I sometimes wonder why the techies are madly in love with Sun. I though it was because we invented Java. Maybe, thats my reason. Making Solaris Open Source ? Yes! Thats another of my reasons.
But wait!!! Here is a completely new dimension for loving Sun.

I guess all different people have different reasons to be passionate about Sun. But there is one common thread Passionate About Technology.

There must be something erotic about Sun Technology -- Thats Open Source !!!!

Workflow in Portal using Java CAPS

Here is a good technical article on how to incorporate workflow in Portal using Java CAPS

Friday, January 4, 2008 has Single SignOn issues

On receiving a promotional email from developer @, I decided to check them out. I had an user id, but had forgotten my password. Thereafter started my ordeal, they have diverse sites like,, and many more...

Nothing wrong in having micro sites, in-fact it allows load balancing; But whats missing is single signon & co-ordination between the sites. Also wiki site login did not have forgot password link.

Its password retrieval process is also cumbersome. Amazon and Google have got it right and they Salesforce should learn from them.

Also I noticed a few JSP files, thus I presume they are using JavaEE infrastructure, so the question is why they haven't gone in for SSO?

The Salesforce concept is excellent and forward looking and gives Amazon and Google a good run for their money, but they need to catchup on OpenId and SSO. Maybe, they should look at Liberty Alliance for leapfrogging by using federated identity management.
