Gradle talk - Java Camp #3, 10 April 2010, Cracow, Poland

If you happen to be in Cracow (Poland) this Saturday (10 April 2010) and you know polish :) you might be interested in attending the Java Camp #3 conference. See for detailed agenda.

I'm happy to announce that I will give a talk on Gradle at 11 am. I have 1,5 hour to present Gradle and show how it compares to Ant/Maven. My plan is to show a lot of code to present how Gradle can solve real-life scenarios ...and bash Ant/Maven along the way ;).

Hope you will be there !

Growing Object-Oriented Software Guided by Tests - Book Review

This is a review of "Growing Object-Oriented Software Guided by Tests" book by Steve Freeman and Nat Pryce (Addison Wesley, 2009)

This book is so great that I could write tons about it, but I tried to keep it reasonably short. :)


Grails uses Gradle now

Only a short news today: Grails is using Gradle now ! Graeme Rocher (Grails Project Lead) informed that the old Ant build was replaced with Gradle.

Hurray ! One more step for Gradle to take over the world ! ;)

I'm pretty sure we will soon hear about other well-known projects migrating to Gradle.


Getters/Setters Revisited - Validation of Order Class

This is a continuation of the post devoted to some code smells that was vigorously commented in favour of ugly, anti-OO code design :). Thanks God, I also got an interesting question regarding this problem.

Seems to me, that this topic should be discussed one more time.

This is a review of "Apache CXF Web Service Development" book by Naveen Balani and Rajeev Hathi (Packt Pub, 2009)


How Programming Books Promote Code Smells

This rant is dedicated to code examples (found in books) that promote bad programming habits. Some of them can be counted among famous code smells.

...for God's sake, books should be educational in every aspect !


Java exPress - introduction to Gradle

I'm happy to announce, that my article devoted to Gradle was published in the latest Java exPress issue. :)

This article will introduce you to Gradle (a powerful and smart build system). Gradle is huge (and still growing), so some concepts were omitted (on purpose), but it should serve you right as a food for thought on what the strong points of Gradle are, and how much easier it can be to perform various build related tasks.


This used to be my blog. I moved to long time ago.
