First entry!

A lot of time has passed since I tried to start blogging about JEE.

I named the blog JEE because my main focus was in JEE and mostly server code but I have been working with:

Front end:

  • Sencha ExtJS: IMHO best javascript UI framework for LOB applications.
  • DevExtreme: Perhaps not as polish and complete as Sencha but is good enough for LOB and good also for "web page" applications.

Back end:

  • Naturally JEE 3.x: EJB, JMS, JPA, JAX-RS, Web Sockets, etc.
  • .NET: WebApi, Entity Framework, OpenXML, etc.

Since I have been a Java / JEE developer for so many time (started with Java in early 2000s) I feel more comfortable with JEE than with .NET but there are some stuff that I feel more polish in .NET than in JEE like LINQ and Entity Framework.


Yep, sometimes you have to do some desktop development. I have the intention of try Electron with ExtJS sometime in the near future but currently I have been very busy working on new business with my youngest son, a VR Venue (Xperience VR). To have some control over the play stations (Windows machines) I have been writing some code in .NET which involves some Winforms code (yes, I know that WPF is there but now I need very simple UIs) and embed an http server in the app. BTW I'm using EmbedIO which is very easy to incorporate in the app.

That's all for now folks, I hope I have the time in the future to post useful information for the developer's community!
