This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
I'd like to announce the release of version 0.1 of rss4jsp, an all-new content syndication tag library built on top of Project Rome. rss4jsp allows developers to quickly and easily embed RSS feeds into their JSP pages with no requirement to write a single line of Java, or to have a detailed understanding of format of the feed they are consuming.
I created rss4jsp after a fruitless search for an equivalent open source tag library (that used Rome) for one of my web sites, and hope that you will find it a useful addition to your toolbox!
All the popular RSS and Atom formats including RSS 0.90, RSS 0.91 (Netscape and Userland), RSS 0.92, RSS 0.93, RSS 0.94, RSS 1.0, RSS 2.0, Atom 0.3, and Atom 1.0 are supported thanks to the comprehensive nature of Project Rome.
Currently there is a basic set of tags providing core functionality; the library will be extended and matured over the next three months before being released as production standard code.
You can download rss4jsp here: http://sourceforge.net/projects/rss4jsp - currently there are full distributions of the tag library and a samples project. The subversion repository has not yet been populated (although this will happen in the next few days) and I'm still working on backfilling the JavaDoc, which will also be resolved soon. If you want an early look at the source then you'll find it in the download.
