Aggregation in Java

| 1 Comment
Flock is an RSS aggregator written in Java. It is a server-side web application accessible with a browser, similar in spirit to AmphetaDesk .
Looks to do alot of what I'm looking for in an aggregator. But there are a few problems, Tomcat(Servelet Engine), JRE and the need publicly avialable sever that has previously mentioned to run it all on. The elguapo of the Java web app situation is there are many intresting Wiki, Blog, Gallery, Aggregator, etc., projects but the whole Java/Tomcat is a real PITA on a shared server.

Maybe when I get broadband and can go back to an always on connection it will be more fesiable. Well that is unless arcterex decides to but Tomcat on


NewsMonster is a newsreader and manager for RSS content, news, and the semantic web.
It has an immpressive feature list, though doesn't claim to support RSS 2.0. It could be the basis for my RSS Reader nirvana with it's Repitle server component side.
[via Russell Beattie Notebook]

Update: NewsMonster *does* support RSS 2.0
One of the features I point out is that it supports *all* versions of RSS.

This is due to the miracles of XSLT ;)

Merging Swing and JSP the answer?

Another Take on Swing and Java's Success. Reminds me of something engel was playing around with that took swing apps and ran them as JSP. The problem was that it looked like someone was soing a poor port of a desktop app to the web, but the idea is still sound and hughly benefical.

James Gosling Interview

Java's "superstar" on why Microsoft's C# isn't
The No. 1 tool (in that area) is Emacs, and I was kind of the guy responsible for the original Emacs, 23 years ago. One of the things I find frightening is it's still around, and in many ways it hasn't really changed.

Java Outline Editor This is

Java Outline Editor
This is a text outliner and MDI implemented in Java Swing. It requires Java 1.3 and so far I've only tested it on 98/NT/2000, but should work on Unix as well being Java and all. The GUI is similar to the outline editor found in Userland's Frontier.

First download version for Linux/GTK

First download version for Linux/GTK available

First, many thanks to Rick Wild who wrote the Waba virtual machine, making Java possible on low-cost devices like PDAs and other portable devices.
You can now download the alpha version of a Linux/GTK port. This port is about 85% done for the GUI classes. Network is on the way.
