Up to date training in a behind the times world
Been a while since I blogged here, but here it goes.
Last week I spent three days in a training class called "Creating Web Services Using Java Technology". All in all, I found it to be an interesting class, and for the most part the information was useful. For the most part . . .
Yes, for the most part. The class showed how to create web services and clients for web services using NetBeans 6.1, which I found to be a pretty IDE, I didn't have any complaints, and as such, I was also using Java 6. But the whole time I would run into a brick wall when I went back to my office Why?
We're still using Weblogic 8, and so we're using Java version 4!! We're two bleeding versions behind. I can't even find a version of NetBeans old enough to use Weblogic 8. Argh!!
Hope this office gets to 2008 before I forget everything I learned in this class. I downloaded stuff at home to play around with it, but there is only so much I can, or want, to do there. My prediction is this office will get to 2008 about midway through 2010.
Oh, by the way, I STILL HATE CRYSTAL!!!
