So, do you like our new look? Check out the ONJava home page and you'll see the familiar purple and black with a few tweaks here and there.
This week, Ganesh Prasad, Rajat Taneja, and Vikrant Todankar present part one of their two-part series, Web and Enterprise Architecture Design Patterns for J2EE. The trio have tried to capture 16 "simple, standard, common-sense ways of doing things that most experienced developers know about and have themselves used." This first episode presents five patterns from the Partitioning and Scope categories.
If you're working on a large Java project you know how many things there are to keep track of and you've probably looked at many tools that offer to help you do so. Tom Copeland offers suggestions in this week's article, Managing Complexity: Keeping a Large Java Project on Track. Tom shows you how to use Ruby, Ant, and a variety of open source tools to create a dashboard and to help manage your project.
Andy Lester's blog entry The computer that cried 'Wolf' is a great companion piece for Copeland's article. Lester warns: "Deal with every problem. Don't brush the problem aside by making a mental note to deal with it later." Also in blogs we pointed to the announcement by Sun that Bill Joy will be leaving after 21 years.

The most visible change to the site is that we are including an article at the top of the page from our sister site, java.net. The first article taken from java.net is one that I wrote called Extreme Teaching that is, in a way, the third in a series I started for ONJava late last year on teaching object-oriented programming in Java. Here we use the Fit framework and Fitnesse to specify a classroom assignment.
Coming next week is part two of the 'Enterprise Design Patterns' article and a nice piece from Will Iverson on desktop applications with browser interfaces.
