5 Months of Blog Code Development

I've deployed the weblog code for the first time in 5 months. It looks the same, but a lot has changed behind the scenes.

Here are the highlights:

  • Homegrown Struts ChainAction to use commons chain 1.0 to implement everything in Chain of Responsibility pattern.
  • Lots of code cleanup (imports, etc) via Eclipse.
  • Shrunken referrer list (shift-reload for that new stylesheet).
  • Actually spell "Referrer" the English way, instead of the W3C way ("Referer:" in HTTP headers).
  • Incoming trackbacks now get truncated to avoid overtaking the "Last Comment" panel.
  • Upgrade to Struts 1.2.7.
  • XHTML 1.0 Strict.
  • Comments are required to be XHTML 1.0 Strict to be saved.
  • Upgrade to use xDoclet 1.2.3, which took some changes to my findAll finders.
  • Now deploy web tier with jboss-client.jar to alleviate JBoss 4.0.2 classloader issues.
