nbextras.org · I ran across a cou­ple of blog point­ers to nbex­tras.org and thought it looked kind of cool and kind of use­ful and kind of lightweight, and I won­dered how it came to be here this week when it wasn’t there last week. So I chat­ted with Trung Duc Tran (he’s one of the se­nior peo­ple over in our Prague NetBeans shop) who put it to­geth­er with a cou­ple of oth­er co-conspirators and asked “How’d you do that?” Wel­l, it turns out that they found a cheap host­ing ser­vice and rent­ed a fake Xen-based serv­er and cob­bled to­geth­er the Jet­ty serv­er and the Peb­ble blog­ging en­gine. “It’s amazing”, Trung told me, “how much work you can get a servlet en­gine to do when you have all the da­ta in memory.” I asked whether it was a lot of de­vel­op­ment time and he seemed sur­prised, they’d dis­cussed it over lunch one day last week and set it up over the week­end and now it’s up. This Java/Web/Open-Source tech­nol­o­gy, it’s gonna catch on, you just watch.
