nice suggestion Mark! anyways i was not suggesting we have a 'MyJavaRanch'. that question was just out of curiosity. in any case logins are irritating unless absolutely necessary.

Basically the ability to personalise your view of the site.
Like My Yahoo etc ....
I think we don't need it right now but it may be a possibility for the future.
yes, thats what i meant. for example 'MyBrainBench', where-in you have a member login which leads to a personalized page. probably this page could give details about the no of postings, postings done in the past day, week etc.
Personalization I'm familiar with! My (still pre-production, sadly) web portal system "wayne" uses mass-customization to aggregate a personal view of arbitrary web sites, rdf newsfeeds and web services. It could probably work as a wrapper round Java Ranch wth a bit of thought. When I get a trial version deployed, I'll see if I can do that as an excercise.
what's the first step do I need?
I can't find any docs in java.sun.com..there are some, but, under the j2ee blueprint.(still don't know how to start)
I play with IBM webshpere studio, but, still don't know how to start..
any suggestion for newbie here? Thanks.
