Can I certify myself for more than an Observer? Let's find out.
Ok, so today I shipped my article on Tapestry to the Java Report. This is very hopeful ... it seems like the publication process for a second article is less formal than the first (I was published there in the June 2000 issue).
I got a lot of response from the first article, probably 100 e-mails, mostly like "where can I get the source code", but still very cheering. That's why I've put way more effort into Tapestry and into the Tapestry demos, in preperation for another onslaught. SourceForge will help a lot there, since it's pretty well organized.
Too bad I'm not certified yet, the current discussion about "critical mass" is very close to my heart.
I've been following several different paths to bootstrap Tapestry :
New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.
