In association with Here's how it works:

  • I made a list of books that I've found to be very good on the subject of computer science
  • I put in links to
  • If you go from my site to and then buy a book, they send me money (your purchase price remains unchanged)

    The Enterprise JavaBeans page, which aims to be a current and complete listing of information and links related to Enterprise JavaBeans.

    The Free CORBA page. I couldn't find any listings of free CORBA implementations, so I decided to start one. There are only a few entries at present; if you know of any that I'm missing, please let me know.

    Here is a link to my Java page. I was stuck for a while because there was a lot of stuff that I wanted to do that couldn't be done in an applet. Eventually, I decided to simply put up the source code to some sample applications; so that's what I've done. There are some JDBC/ODBC samples, a very simple example of how to use native methods, and a bunch of other stuff. I've just put together an RMI tutorial; hope you find it useful.

    Here's a link to a paper that Bruce Smith and I wrote describing an internet GIS solution we developed. Bruce presented the paper at ESRI's 1998 user conference. You can see the system itself here. A related system, the EZ/EC Locator, is also available online here.
