Servlet 2.4 Spec Overview

Core Developers Network

After a longer and more difficult process than expected, the 2.4 version of the Servlet Specification has been completed by JSR-154 and is due for release before the end of 2003. The aims of this revision of the specification were some modest feature enhancements, improved deployment descriptors and general clarifications of existing functionality. These aims, with some notable exceptions have largely been met. This article reviews the most important additions, changes, omissions and remaining problems in the specification. The key new features are introduced and some explanations are given for those that are missing in action. Problem areas that remain in the specification and those that have newly been added are also discussed.

This is the second article in a Box2D series, following the Box2D Orientation article. The Box2DWeb port of Box2D contains a nice example to show off the basics of integrating physics simulations into your web app. This post will provide a walkthrough of the example, explaining the high level concepts and code. First, let's see the example in action. The code for the above is open source and available on GitHub. It was adapted from Box2DWeb's example . Animating Before we look at Box2D, it's important to understand how the above simulation is animated. You might think setInterval or setTimeout is

  • In which I port a snazzy little JavaScript audio web app to Dart , discover a bug, and high-five type annotations. Here's what I learned. [As it says in the header of this blog, I'm a seasoned Dart developer. However, I certainly don't write Dart every day (I wish!). Don't interpret this post as "Hi, I'm new to Dart". Instead, interpret this post as "I'm applying what I've been documenting."] This post analyzes two versions of the same app, both the original (JavaScript) version and the Dart version. The original version is a proxy for any small JavaScript app, there's nothing particularly special about the original version, which is why it made for a good example. This post discusses the differences between the two implementations: file organization, dependencies and modules, shims, classes, type annotations, event handling, calling multiple methods, asynchronous programming, animation, and interop with JavaScript libraries.

  • Angular and Polymer, sitting in a DOM tree, B-i-n-d-i-n-g. First comes components, Then comes elements, Then comes the interop with the node dot bind. Angular , a super heroic MVC framework, and Polymer , polyfills and enhancements for custom elements built on top of Web Components, can live harmoniously in the same app. This post shows you how to connect Angular-controlled components to Polymer-controlled elements via data binding. And we do it all in Dart . Angular and Polymer I get asked "Should I use Angular or Polymer?" a lot. My answer is, "Yes". That is, both libraries have distinct strengths, and you can use both in the same app. Polymer excels at creating encapsulated custom elements. You can use those custom elements in any web app or web page, regardless if that app is built with Angular, Ember, etc. Angular excels at application engineering, with dependency injection, end-to-end testability, routing, and services. Here are som
