Mark Wielaard: New GPG key. Finally created a new GPG key using gnupg. The old one was a DSA/1024 bits one and 8 years old. The new one is a RSA/2048 bits one. I will use the new one in the future to sign any release tarballs I might create. pub 2048R/57816A6A 2011-01-29 Key f...

Agile Methods Applied in JSR Spec and Reference Implementation Development

The JCP site has published a new article, Agility: Definitions, Principles, and Practices for Today, written by Susan Mitchell. The article focuses on the agile methods that are being employeed by three JCP Spec Leads: Ronald Toegl - JSR 321, Trusted Computing API for Java Ed Burns - JSR 314, Java Server Faces 2.0 Emmanuel Bernard - JSR 303, Bean Validation At first glance, it might seem strange to find agile software development methods applied within the context of a standards organization. Isn't it more natural, perhaps even more appropriate, for a standards organization to define a specification in detail prior to any implementation of the spec? On the other hand, it seems like simultanteous hands-on development could also be useful, since development complications that are not readily forseeable will show up earlier during the process of creating a reference implementation for the JSR. Spec Lead Ronald Toegl believes the "implement first and specify later" apprach is the best for JSR 321: To us, agility provides an efficient use of resources, short feedback cycles, and a chance to consider different approaches while still moving forward. It also allows us to take small, easy-to-reach steps. The JSR 321 Expert Group started with a minimal prototype, from which Java interface definitions were extracted. After some discussion, these were released as an Early Draft. Currently, the team is implementing the interface...
