Enhydra Application Development with XMLC presents XMLC development by first outlining the advantages of XMLC and the Enhydra platform. The book then introduces progressively more complex development scenarios using XMLC and illustrates each topic with working examples.
From the Author
This book is about open source Enhydra. But Enhydra wouldnt have been here without a core group of Lutris engineers and executives, so let me acknowledge Lutris for a few paragraphs before I enter a fairly agnostic discussion about Enhydra from here on out.
About six years ago, November 1995, I came to Lutris, then "The Information Refinery," to leading training and marketing, later to become President, and after replacing myself with a real President, Yancy Lind, have served as Chief Evangelist for the past three years.
One of the keys to establishing and perpetuating a successful open source project is to seed that project with a great technology.
One way to approach a new product is to sit in a room and think of great architectures, talking to a few customers, then toss a coin. Another is to simply hire great developers, who happen to be great people, and trust their experience and sense of commitment. Then do major consulting work, and find out "the truth" from those who will eventually reflect your customer.
It started with a hard-nosed and very, very creative architect, Lutris CTO Paul Morgan, acknowledging the need for a pure, highly adaptive architecture to support our consulting business. We did something very good[md]hiring solid software engineers. People who appreciated testing, version control systems, and elegant designs. We lucked out. Under the umbrella of an evolving consulting business, Paul Morgan, Mark Diekhans, John Marco, Andy John, Kyle Clark, and Shawn McMurdo applied their UNIX server and networking backgrounds together to lay the foundation for a highly extensible, pragmatic architecture that started with a simple but elegant way to lay out source code.
Enhydra XMLC Java Presentation Development is written for computer professionals, with a special focus on application architects, Java Web application developers, and those who are just ramping up on Java and are excited about immersing themselves into Web application development.
Taking a task view wherever possible, this book is written to support those seeking a more elegant, maintainable, and flexible mechanism for building Web application presentations. While we spend some time introducing the Enhydra application server for those who are new to the topic of application server development, this book is focused primarily on the topic of Enhydra XMLC and how to use it to improve the lifecycle requirements of your Web application.
About the Author
Enhydra XMLC Application DevelopmentAuthor Bio
David H. Young is Chief Evangelist for Lutris Technologies in Santa Cruz, California, for whom he writes technical papers, gives speeches on wireless and Web development, and serves as editor of the Lutris Enhydra Journal. David has penned magazine articles for publications including ComputerWorld, WebTechniques, and Network Telephony.
As the father of three daughters, he believes in going overboard with all his efforts whenever possible. So, in late 1995, he left his engineering career at The Santa Cruz Operation at the behest of colleagues Paul Morgan and Michael Browder, the original founders of Lutris Technologies. There he started by serving as president for 2 1/2 years, leading some of the consulting projects that spawned Paul's vision of a consultant's portable toolbox, later dubbed "Enhydra" by Lutris' Yancy Lind. David was instrumental in the proposal to turn this Lutris technology into a full-blown open source project.
After collecting his Bachelor of Science degree in Earth Sciences from the University of California at Santa Cruz, David eventually landed a job at Amdahl Corporation in 1983 where he learned PL/I. After he wrote a program that shaved days off the process of re-routing circuit boards, Amdahl incorporated it into their production software and had no choice but to promote David to the role of full engineer. From there, David joined SCO in 1987 where he not only met Paul, Michael, and John Marco, but was also taken under the wing of Tcl guru Mark Diekhans, who eventually joined Lutris and developed Enhydra XMLC.
Working for SCO gave David the opportunity to see the world as an X/Open Systems Management Working Group representative and establish his own niche as Product Manager for Future Technologies. Earlier, as an SCO Development manager for SCO's Motif scripting tool, "Visual Tcl," David was inspired by its champions Mark and Paul to write The Visual Tcl Handbook (Prentice Hall). Unfortunately, this great technology was never open sourced, limiting its access and evolution. Enhydra and Lutris have given him the opportunity to make amends.
David lives in Aptos, California with his wife Kathy, daughters Amanda, Nicole, and Claire, and cat Autumn.
