Philadelphia and Fun with RAD6

Back to Philly this week, doing servlets and JSPs with RAD6.  At least they remembered to install RAD6 this time.  Last week they didn't, and it took four hours to download and install the product.  I might even try running the updater and see what happens.

In the meantime, it's Hibernate some more.  I'm going to build the Hibernate classes from Will's Derby HRDatabase.  MyEclipse was able to generate the classes and even an ER Diagram, but I'm not sure I want to use it that way.  I also can't rely on the training clients having the product.  Still, the alternative may be Ant build files, and that hides so much.  It's working in the Rensselaer class, but I don't know how well that's going to work out when the students start their projects.

I also only ordered the shorter version of the materials for this week.  That'll give me plenty of opportunities to riff on the topics, which works well for me.
