JBoss's Advice to Sun... and Boxing Matches

Since I'm still in the mood for a break (I'm planning to start my holiday break early next week - and I'm not planning to spend it like last Xmas break)... a pointer to Sacha's post: SUN: (Sound?) Open Source Business Model? and John's followup: When you hit them and they smile, you know you did something right .

Open source, VC and the long path

My CAOS colleague Matt Aslett wrote recently about how we expect to see an uptick in open source merger and acquisition activity given the current economic conditions and bargains for the larger, mostly proprietary players. Matt also discusses the difficulty of further VC funding, though we have seen some significant investment announcements, such as Open-Xchange, Infobright and others. Still, Matt is probably right that funding will be harder to come by for any company, open source or not.

I also continue to see a number of startup and younger open source vendors — would-be fundees — that are opting to hold off on venture funding and stick to building up business, customers and …

How to use JDBC (Connector/J) with MySQL Cluster

Last week I helped a customer setup a JBoss application against MySQL Cluster. It turns out it is not immediately obvious how you should setup our JDBC connector to do loadbalancing and failover. For instance, setting the connector up for an Master-Slave setup (with MySQL Enterprise) is well documented, but not doing the same with MySQL Cluster.

It's not really properly documented in the manual part, but I found in the changelogs, and confirmed on IRC that to do load-balancing across the SQL nodes in MySQL Cluster, you would use a different JDBC connection string with the "loadbalance" keyword added...


jdbc:mysql:loadbalance://host-1,host-2,...host-n/database

That does indeed …

3 strikes

I'd call this the 3rd strike and everybody knows what happens next

Marc Fleury has some good answers to the most clueless industry reporter around, starting with:
Spring is touting itself as a JBoss replacement. Smart PR, but false. Spring is a development framework comprising wrappers and dependency injection on top of Hibernate and Tomcat runtimes, both developed, and monetized by JBoss.

You can drop some balls, no one can keep track of what's going on in Open Source land, it's difficult enough to track what's going on in MySQL, Drupal, Virtualization and Distribution land but if you realize you don't have the whole picture (like not …
