WebWork: WebWork 2.2: Released and ready for Struts!

„WebWork 2.2: Released and ready for Struts!
OpenSymphony and the WebWork team are proud to announce the release of WebWork version 2.2 (download now). This release is the biggest release ever for WebWork and there are plenty of reasons why (full release notes):
Full support for Java 5 Annotations and Generics
Rich AJAX support using DWR and Dojo
New QuickStart tool makes development easier than ever
Tons more documentation with over 900 PDF pages!
Client side validation using AJAX or plain JavaScript
Built in support for Continuations
JSR168/Portlet support for several popular Portlet servers, including Pluto
Rich UI template framework with native support for JSP, FreeMarker, and Velocity
Native support for Spring and Pico IOC containers
More intelligent error reporting
Developer Mode makes building webapps even easier with improved error reporting
Simplified tag syntax
Advanced data binding framework that works with any object, including domain objects
This release marks an important milestone in the WebWork history: the last major release under the WebWork and OpenSymphony names. While future minor releases will continue to take place (including 2.2.x and 2.1.x releases), all major work will now fold in to the Struts Action Framework, version 2.0. You can use WebWork 2.2 as an early preview of Struts Action Framework 2.0, but you can also expect many other great improvements to be added between now and then.
Thanks to the entire WebWork team for all their hard work, especially during these last few weeks as the final touches were put in place.“

Materialized Views in PostgreSQL

„Materialized Views in PostgreSQL

A materialized view is a technique to „cache“ the results of a query when its result set is large or the query is very slow and that query is used very often. A materialized view is a set of query results stored in a table. Usually this means the results of a selection of a view. Queries involving aggregation are a good reason to have a materialized view. Usually a slow query is not a good reason to have a materialized view unless you have exhausted the best advice from pgsql-general and pgsql-performance. „

Vista Versions

„Microsoft plans to market several versions of Vista but will distribute all of the OS bits with every product shipped so users can easily unlock and step up to more full-featured versions using electronic keys, sources said.

„No matter which edition you buy you get all the bits and a key to unlock it. Everyone will have all the bits,“ said one source familiar with Microsoft’s plans. „Right now we maintain master images for each version of Windows XP and it’s a lot of work. Now there’s just one master image.““
