    Every once in a while, we'll bring to you, some of the randomly selected evergreen articles that have been published at JavaRanch. This month let's revisit:

  • Evil Unit Testing by the trail boss
  • Scriptless JSP Pages: The Front Man by Bear Bibeault

  • Meaningless Drivel

    Before we sign off this month's journal, let's see what the trail boss has been doing outside of JavaRanch. As he himself admits, he's nuts about permaculture and here's one of his articles on cast-iron:

  • Using a cast iron skillet ain't so hard - with a little knowledge one skillet can be non stick and last for hundreds of years.

  • Suggestion/Feedback

    If you have any feedback on this month's journal then discuss it in the thread here. Or if you have any general suggestions about the JavaRanch journal, then feel free to open a new thread in our Ranch Office forum.
