I recently learned of Yahoo Pipes after poking a little around WeFeelFine.org‘s technostack, and 50minutes of videocasts later, I’m quite engaged!

the-toobes-of-yahooSo how would I describe the Ytoobes? Online present ESB with simple BPEL engine and editor. What’s so special about this, is that they’ve lowered the learning curve for being a SOA Web configurer, and provide advanced functionality to the up-until-now static pages of non-enterpricy webpages!

When I look into my crystal ball, I see

  • Screenscraping webpages for providing RSS feeds
  • Advanced forms and workflows embedded into “static” databaseless webpages
  • A new contestant for enterpricy integration

Conclusion

A serious competitor for web-datasource extraction with a low entry-level for adoption that can be expensive to miss out on!

What I’m into right now

I thought I’d post updates on what I’m interested in, to give a glimpse of what I’m looking into and have moved away from. Perhaps I’ll have enough data to create a graph someday 🙂

Up and coming

  • Neo4J – A graph store – no more ORMappings
  • Qi4J – A composite development framework, a new way of writing Java applications, a way of life
  • Groovy GRAILS – Excellent for prototyping Java stuff
  • Mercurial – When thinking different, why not Version Control as well?
  • Swing Appframework, Java6u10 – Propably the next big thing in Rich Internet Applications
  • Visualization of graphs – Am looking for a nice, easy API for creating several hierarchical trees that I can drag and manipulate
  • Amazon EC2 – Java enabled servers on demand!
  • Twitter, Blog, IRC -New (and revisited) ways of communicating intra-project/company
  • javaBin, JavaZone – Working with the JavaZone conference for a year was damn fun!
