Back Home

Its been 2 years since I last posted and a a lot of water has passed under the bridge since then. I’ve started a cub scout pack, coached under 8s soccer for a year, and spent 8 months on various DIY projects including renovating 3 bathrooms, a laundry room and kitchen ceiling, and 2 months selling my house. After all that I have finally moved back to Manchester in the UK which is where I am from originally.

Now that things have quietened down a bit, I’m going to start looking at writing some more posts. Technology-wise, I’ve been mainly going where my work has taken me, which has mostly been Spring, some EJB, JSF and GWT. Future blog posts are more likely to be technology agnostic, but there will be posts dealing with specific technologies and how-tos.

I personally enjoy reading longer and more in-depth posts or articles, and in general I enjoy writing them, but writing, proof-reading and re-reading takes a lot of time. As I only have a few hours to spend on non-work projects, I’m hopefully going to try and reach a balance with shorter posts more frequently (although brevity is often not in my nature).

  1. Finally I have your news.
    It’s really uplifting.

    Are you aware of the lack of a constructor or setter method to receive a JDBC Connection as an argument in org.fluttercode.datavalve.provider.jdbc.JdbcDataProvider?
    Such as:

    public JdbcDataProvider(Connection connection) {
    super(connection);
    }

  2. I’ll have to take a look at that later. I don’t have a current computer for personal work since mine is being shipped from the US at the moment.
