My pain on Java open source portal evaluation still goes on

After extensive search, reading, comparing and trying, finally I limited my choices to the following three:

– exo platform
– Liferay
– uportal

All of them have JSR 168 support, which is my basic choosing criteria. Still they all have pros and cons:

– exo platform: the most technically advanced; has all the buzz words like JSR 168, JSR 170, WSRP, IOC, JSF etc; it uses PICO, the light-weight IOC framework; it also uses JSF as the portal presentation technology and has an eclipse plug in for…

PHP, .NET or J2EE? –Some considerations when choosing web development platform

One of my old posts, with some thoughts apparently not true or outdated in today’s view; just put it here to fill the space 😉

— The technical platform selection first is determined by what kinds of resources/expertise the developemnt team have.

— Language by itself: PHP is a scripting language, like VB script used in ASP. whileas Jsp and asp.net are pre-compiled when serving the request, Java and ASP.NET(whether C# , VB.net, J# or others) are full-fledged object-oriented language; PHP is…

米国的爱国宣誓词

本来还不知道,直到一天听到女儿嘴里嘟囔着什么“four witch’s tents, one nation under duck”。一问,才知道从kindergarten开始,就已经每天早上念这个了,只是她根本不知道是什么东东。我让她背了几遍,发挥托福听力功底,整理出这么个句子:

I pledge a legion to the flag of the united states of America and to the republic for the richs tens, one nation under guard, invisible with liver, tea and justice for all.

想想不对劲,肝脏茶叶都出来了;而且不是平等吗,怎么成了富人共和国。又听了几遍,改为:

I pledge a legion to the flag of the united states of America and to the republic for Rich Stanz, one nation under guard, invisible with…

浅谈中、美网游

1)国内的网络游戏开发:

–最早流行的都是一些MUD–泥巴游戏,著名的有笑傲江湖,金庸群侠传等,到现在还有大量玩家。早期的MUD都是纯字符的RPG类养成游戏,现在的新版本已有图形版。

–网上棋牌类游戏:四五年前开始兴起,打牌下棋等,国内有许多这类网站/游戏中心,如联众。

–这两年开发的新游戏,及搬上网的老RPG游戏等。受韩国网游鼓舞,国内开始大量投入游戏开发,如网易的大话西游。金山也将以前的剑侠情缘搬上网。台湾的老牌游戏商如大宇、智冠,华义等也都以进军大陆。

但总的来说市场是韩国游戏的天下。另外国内全是电脑网游,没有online console game.

(2)美国的网游

其实美国网络游戏也很热,从游戏种类/数目上要比国内多得多。70年代开始美国已有许多mud games. 现在最流行的网游包括sony的EverQuest, EA的’Ultima Online等。quake/doom类的战斗游戏也较流行,但subscriber人数总的来说与亚洲相较不多。我想其中一个原因是可供选择的游戏太多,而且许多不用付费。…

陕西颂

一直有一个感觉:陕西净出高人。这可不是一般的“高”,而是带着汉唐传承,千年中华历史熏陶的。古代就不说了,一首首唐诗就让人神往不已。当代也绝不差:“八百里秦川尘土飞扬,三千万人民齐吼秦腔“,瞧这气势,这文化!

我没在陕西呆过,但不妨碍我对陕西的景仰如长江之水滔滔不绝:

— 中国歌曲/歌手中,我特别喜欢的许多来自陕西或是陕西味:西北风/信天游太早,老崔的一无所有,侯德健的“三十以后才明白“都是陕北风味。“姐姐“的张楚,”回到拉萨”的郑钧,”天堂里有没有车来车往”的张恒,以及那个唱”楼兰新娘”的杨海潮全来自西安。前两天发的那陕西风味的练死小日本也够有味道吧。所谓摇滚,不就是秦腔吗。

— 拍电影拍的好的是陕西人。什么第五代导演黄土地之类都是从西影出来的。张艺谋是个典型。

— 陕西文人:看了贾平凹写的文章(商州纪事什么的,不算“此处删去XX字“的那本东西)才知道什么叫怪才。路遥,陈忠实们更不用说了,尤其是路遥,“平凡的世界“曾感动得俺清纯少年茶饭不思了好几天。
