Greetings from the post- JavaOne world. As you're probably aware, Sun Microsystems and O'Reilly & Associates have officially announced java.net as a new community site. And ONJava writer and weblogger Daniel Steinberg heads Java Today, a technical newspaper for the site. We're looking forward to great things from java.net.
With that public service in mind, faithful old ONJava.com continues, as usual, to bring you interesting and informative articles from the open source Java world. Here's what's new this week.
New writer Allen Chan makes an impressive debut in J2EE Application Deployment Considerations. If you can't keep straight the difference between EARs and WARs, and when and where to mix them, this article is for you. Even if you do know that much, do you know when and why to mix EJBs, and when and why to separate them? Do you know which classloader will load which files? There's a lot to learn. Start saving yourself pain now.
Do long-running web requests give your users the blues? Can you tell the difference between a request that's almost done and one that will never continue? Andrei Cioroianu has an answer in JSP Progress Bars. A little threading, a little page refreshing, and you'll give your users a better idea of what's going on.

In the weblog world, Sue Spielmann is back, reporting on JavaOne. William Grosso is there too. In fact, there are so many JavaOne reports, just go to weblogs.oreillynet.com to catch up.
Next week, we'll explore the Jakarta Commons, talk to Kathy Sierra and Bert Bates, and explore what it takes to generate files from a web request.
