It's Not a Gold Watch...

Misc

We got home very late last night, and I crashed without even glancing at the Internet. All was well, until I rolled out of bed early this morning with coffee in hand, logged onto my source/search sites, and--Great Krypton!! Bill Gates is retiring???

My first thought after wiping up the coffee spill was "I will never leave the office again." I opened LT and didn't see the story. My next thought was to call my esteemed colleague and... ask... him what in the [insert expletive here] was he thinking? One of the biggest tech stories of the year, and we didn't have it? Panic seeped in.

I started looking around for the best story to link to, and quickly came to an interesting revelation. Rob didn't make a mistake, he did the right thing. This story, as big as it was, wasn't about Linux or open source at all. And, try as many in the mainstream media wanted to make this about Linux, they really could not make a valid connection.

Create modular server-side Java apps direct from mvn modules with diet4j instead of an app server

In the latest release, the diet4j module framework for Java has learned to run modular Java apps using the Apache jsvc daemon (best known from running Tomcat on many Linux distros). If org.example.mydaemon is your top Maven project, all you do is specify it as the root module for your jsvc invocation, and diet4j figures out the dependencies when jsvc starts. An example systemd.service file is available.
