Create crossword > win sony playstation

Being an Apress Author, a couple of days back I got a mail that talked about Apress’ latest book promotion. Create a five-up/five-down crossword puzzle incorporating ten different Apress and friends of ED author last names and you could win a Sony Playstation. Cool!

Apress registered user group members who reside in the United States
and Canada can participate in the contest. Apress authors can’t
participate. However I did toy with a few crossword tips that could get
me my last name. Oak is a tree, Java’s original name was Oak…

While on the subject of crosswords, I explored a little more about crosword creation and found some interesting facts like :

  • The
    first crossword was created by newspaperman Arthur Wynn in 1913. It is
    amazing that crosswords have spread across the globe in such a short
  • People who write conventional crosswords are called constructors.

Anyway, as this doesn’t have much to do with java, I will leave it here.

    ‘but where is the equivalent of JAAS, JMS or JTA?’

    LAMP is complementary to those technologies, since PHP and Perl are interoperable with Java. The P’s could be considered implementation languages of the web layer in the overall architecture. Many compelling reasons to use scripting languages for development of web applications. Language interoperability yields the best of both worlds.

    I have never heard a good explanation of why Java is more scalable than LAMP. The LAMP stack can be scaled up with clusters of Apache/MySQL servers. Java can be scaled at the application server level. What’s the difference? At least the PHP way doesn’t require a special scheme to replicate application state, since sessions are stored in the database (just cluster the database).
