Mike Prestwood

Happy New Year!
From all of us at Prestwood Software, we wish you a prosperous and fulfilling 2009. - Learn on the go!
The Prestwood mobile website: In this first edition of 2009 we are featuring our small-screen version of the Prestwood Programmer Community (PPC). Our small screen has been around for a while but we've recently added several small screen features including a handy random tidbit feature that allows you to study on the go. Grab your phone, iPhone, Blackberry, PocketPC, or Palm and browse to whenever you are on the road and want to get five minutes of studying in.

Implementing the Composite and Visitor Patterns in Java
by Evan Egalite

Implementing design patterns can be difficult and little sample code exists that walks you through the process. The purpose of this article is to walk through the implementation of a program that uses the Composite and Visitor design patterns. The sample project is written in the object-oriented language, Java, but it could just as easily have been written in C++.

 Monthly Java Lesson
Tool Basics Topic:
Code Snippet of the Month

Promoted as a single source cross-platform runtime system (Write Once, Run Anywhere). Java builds on and in some ways simplifies the object oriented features of C++. Java applications are typically compiled to byte-code and can run on any platform running the Java Virtual Machine (JVM).

Target Platforms: Java is suitable for creating many types of cross-platform applications that target the JVM including desktop business applications.

Java EE Topic:
If you need support for Java EE and Web development, consider Eclipse IDE for Java EE Developers.

The Eclipse IDE for Java EE Developers contains everything you need to build Java and Java Enterprise Edition (Java EE) applications. Considered by many to be the best Java development tool available, the Eclipse IDE for Java EE Developers provides superior Java editing with incremental compilation, Java EE 5 support, a graphical HTML/JSP/JSF editor, database management tools, and support for most popular application servers.

JBuilder Topic:
Resource Link of the Month: Video & Audio: CDN JBuilder TV

Lots here! {#eek} JBuilder TV is part of CodeGear's developer network. Contains both audios and videos.
