Hi Craig,

Nice to have you here. I wonder if Spring in Action talks about Spring Security in a bit in-depth.

Topics like how to use Spring Security in a clustered environment with/without sticky session load balancer will be of a nice one. As far as I know Spring Security by default only support clustered environment with sticky session load balancer, CMIIW.

Thanks,

Hi,

When I first heard about OSGi it was with a lot of excitement, having been in Java development for several years with the fact that building a modular and easy to manage system is way difficult, at least back in the early days.

Then I tried to read more about OSGi, reading through tutorials, watching some online presentation. Boy this is a very tough subject (at least it is to me). Looking at the adoption of OSGi in the industry I might say that OSGi is not mainstream yet and most probably it is not because of the steep learning curve that people like me has to deal with in order to get the first grasp of this old "new" creature. I mean the whole idea is just brilliant, but really it's not easy to grab.

My questions are:
1. How do you see the OSGi is going in future in terms of ease of development and industry adoption?
2. Is OSGi really going to be mainstream java modularity framework?
3. Do you think there's a good chance that OSGi will be used in a day to day basis by huge number of Java Developer in Enterprise Applications? Or will it only reside at a low level framework, library and Application Server use?

Thanks,
Jecki
Hi Damon,

Thanks for your (fairly long) reply. Really appreciate it.

I have done simple Android applications several months back and never had thought about Android Web Apps as a viable alternative in writing an App for Android.

Yes, I have heard of PhoneGap and Rhomobile before. But I thought internally they do some compilation to native code specifically for each platform (Android, BlackBerry, iOS), which is totally my mistake that I didn't really dig into it before I assume something.

I'll check on this looks-promising alternative and make a comparison myself.

Once again thanks for your reply.

Hi,

I find the topic of this book interesting and would like to ask some questions that come into my mind:

1. How does Android Web Apps differ from the usual Web Apps?
2. What is the advantage and disadvantage between developing Android Web Apps and Native Apps?
3. As far as I am concerned there is a different in paradigm between developing Web Apps (in general) and Native Apps. How true is it in the case of Android? Will one be able to easily switch from developing Native Apps to Web Apps (and vice versa)?

Thanks
