Welcome to Geoff Hayward's Weblog

Commenting on Java, JavaFX, Java EE, Joomla, and IoT.

After several weeks of programming a bespoke blogging platform it's finished. Well kind of finished. I will get to that. The blogging platform is for Web Developers, who need the back-end application part of a platform but do not wish to be tied to one language and template engine for their own front-end development work.

Why the need? I decided to create my new website with Java EE 7. I am a huge fan of Java EE 7 and JSF 2.2. The blogging platform is simply a by-product of that wish.

In the next iteration I intend to crate a REST API so that the front-end can be an authenticated REST client. Thus achieving the goal of language and template engine independence. In the meantime I'm road testing the blog platform with my own website. Once the next iteration is ready I will probably commit the platform to a public GitHub repository. You can find more information about the blog platform over at javablogplatform.blogspot.co.uk/.

Why the new website? My blogging goal has changed since creating the old website. I wish to have more of a weblog. The subject area of this new website will be anything Java EE, Software Development, and MSc study related. I have of course imported the content from my older blog.

So here goes
