Our featured speaker for the next Denver Java User Group will be David Gallardo, author of Eclipse in Action published by Manning.
We'll be giving away some of his books along with some other books and certificates from SoftPro and Batky-Howell as door prizes.
Meetings and food are free. Networking and food start at 5:30 PM at the Qwest Auditorium in Denver CO.
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.
5:30-6 p.m. Food and Networking
6 p.m. Basic Concepts
7-7:15 p.m. Break and Announcements
