XML Serialization for Java 
I wanted to share the following article - it is an excellent overview of the history of Java Serialization as well as an unusually good overview of using XML with JavaBeans.

Along the way, Mr. Winchester also whets the appetite for learning more about using XML for the serialization for non-JavaBeans-conforming objects by using delegates.

Upon reflection (pun intended), the article will also provide the student with an understanding of the assessor / mutator refactoring operation of NetBeans & other popular Java IDE's:

[XML Serialization of Java Objects]
"Java serialization was initially used to support remote method invocation (RMI), allowing argument objects to be passed between two virtual machines. RMI works best when the two VMs contain compatible versions of the class being transmitted, and can reliably transmit a binary representation of the object based on its internal state."

NOTE: Students unfamiliar with JavaBeans might also enjoy reading the [Wikipedia JavaBeans Page.]

Cognetic Word Lists 

The Problem

They annoy everyone - people who think they are smart by putting a few words together, then handing out a do-noting web site to sell the combination. Doh!

Cyber Nuts

No matter if they are grabbing your ideal name before you think of it (cyber squatting), or after you release it (cyber poaching), the one thing these nut cases have in common is that they have absolutely no intention of actually doing anything with the URL. Indeed, many are merely squatting on the name, hoping to sell it back to us at some point in time.

--Personally, I hope they hang onto those names forever ...!

Cognetic Word

In as much as so many of my friends and I have lots of neat products and web sites we want to share, we thought it high time to release a little tool I wrote years ago. I used it to help put together many of the web and other names you might have seen used here.

Cognetic Words

For the moment we decided to host the "Cognetic Words Project" at The official description reads:

"This tool allows us to mix phrase lists together. The results can be used to create memorable web site names using 'Cognetic Word Lists' -Sniglets designed to defeat the name-hijacking of URL squatters, hackers, & other menaces to on-line innovation."

Like many a NOJ these days, this tool uses Java. Will work anywhere... even in your browser.
