Over the last couple of months, been working on a series of Articles for O’Reilly (online) . The articles are on J2EE / Drools (more later) , but it’s been an interesting process – about 4 weeks total effort (if you count it as a day job, in reality it was spread over many evenings and weekends).
The staff at O’Reilly have been very helpful – even if I went about the process backwards (whereas normally you pitch a couple of paragraphs as a summary , then get go-ahead to do the full article). The hardest / most tedious part was formatting the article in simple html , given that it was initally written using Word / OpenOffice.
The Article will be publish on OnJava in the next couple of days , source code for the article can be downloaded here.
