The next Denver Java User Group (DJUG) will be on Wednesday, August 13th.
Our featured speaker will be David Gallardo (author of Eclipse in Action) talking about the Open Source IDE Eclipse. Our Basic Concept's lecture will be by Chris Huston on JDOM.
Times, location, and other details are below:
Main Meeting:
Topic: Using Eclipse
Speaker: David Gallardo, Independent software consultant and co-author of Eclipse In Action
7:15-8:45 p.m. Wednesday, August 13, 2003
Location: Qwest Auditorium
Cost: Free
Main Meeting Description:
Eclipse is a new open-source, Java-based, extensible
development platform designed for "nothing in particular"
but everything in general. Because of its roots, it is currently
most popular as a Java integrated development environment (IDE).
Eclipse ships with plugins for writing and debugging Java code.
Additional plugins for more advanced Java development,
such as JSP/servlets, are available from third parties.
Basic Concepts Meeting:
Topic: JDOM
Speaker: Chris Huston
6-7 p.m. Wednesday, August 13, 2003
Location: Qwest Auditorium
Cost: Free
The good news is XML is vendor-neutral, platform-neutral,
and programming language-indedepenent. The bad news is
Xerces reflects these attributes and doesn't present a very
Java-like interface. This isn't a criticism -- it's by design –
but JDOM offers the best of both worlds. This open source
API, written by Jason Hunter and Brett McLaughlin,
makes parsing XML a far more Java-friendly experience.
AGENDA:
5:30-6 p.m. Food and Networking
6 p.m. Basic Concepts
7-7:15 p.m. Break and Announcements
7:15-8:15 p.m. Main speaker
