My own home towns' website hasnt changed for so long that the copyright logo is dated 1999, Reading Town

A Java implementation of the popular postnuke Content Management System is born.

The port of postnuke to the JBOSS framework was mainly due to the fact that the current PHP implementation is not quite up to scratch is some areas, for instance in scalability, execution time and data caching.

My only reservation is that the port is exactly that, therefore the View (html) is produced within the servlets via the old 'print' statements. This port could have been the ideal time to implement a MVC paradigm using either JSP/Struts or Velocity.

CSS - Zen Garden

May 13

Zen Garden is simply a web page designed to demonstrate the use of CSS.

It is hoped that many people (graphic designers) will submit their own designs by only modifying the CSS. There seems to be only a few submissions as yet, and those are by the designer himself. Therefore I thought I’d mention the site here.

Why not download the CSS and start submitting your own designs!
