This looks very cool. I like how the DSL aspects of this lets one write code that reads a lot like the bussiness rules of a domain.

Having fun with ruby. When I saw I can run erb from the command line at once I had to write a erb to generate Java code. Of course Eclipse makes this particular example easy, but I'm thinking of generating unit tests with this...

C:\temp>type fun.rhtml
* Module written: <%=Time.now%>
public class something {
<% vars=['Jim','Potter','Zanker','Grimper'] %>
<% vars.each do |x| %> private String get<%=x.downcase%>;
<% end %><% vars.each do |x| %>
public String get<%=x%>() {
return <%=x.downcase%>;
<% end %>
C:\temp>erb fun.rhtml
* Module written: Sun Sep 04 19:59:39 Eastern Daylight Time 2005
public class something {

private String getjim;
private String getpotter;
private String getzanker;
private String getgrimper;

public String getJim() {
return jim;

public String getPotter() {
return potter;

public String getZanker() {
return zanker;

public String getGrimper() {
return grimper;

Its been to long, but I figure I need to get back to blogging the interesting things I've been finding and doing. Since the last time I've blogged I've picked up the Ruby on Rails bug and I'm in danger of becoming a Rails Fan Boy.

Today I'm having the first of hopefully many codefests with Rails attempting to put together a simple mailing list application for a small association of sail boat owners.

I'm Liking http://del.icio.us website for bookmarking very much. Lets you put multiple keywords on a bookmark. Lets you list bookmarks by keyword. You can see what bookmarks are popular for certain keywords. Also cool is that it lets you see who else is using the same bookmark as you.

My bookmarks are at http://del.icio.us/jeffwaltzer

My entry on a public bookmark site. Like the feature that lets you see who else is using the same bookmark in their bookmarks.

I was looking at a Junit tool called Hansel http://hansel.sourceforge.net .
The idea of having code coverage running while one is doing TDD could be interesting.
