Hello everyone, especially those in the .eu area.

ApacheCon Europe will soon be with us.  There aren't explicitly any ant 
talks, I guess because the "whats coming in Ant1.7 talk" from last year 
( is mostly still 
valid. But there will be lots of ant developer and users there, and lots 
of coverage of apache java stuff.

There's a little talk on system testing that I am busy trying to put 
together in time:

Beyond Unit Testing

Steve Loughran, Julio Guijarro

All modern applications have two things in common: they are distributed 
applications, and they all need to be tested. This talk looks at what 
can be done on top of JUnit 3.x. Areas of interest will include 
installation testing, functional testing, interoperability testing, test 
choreography, and testing large-scale and distributed systems. On the 
way, database setup, the black-hole of GUI testing, XML validation, and 
other problems will be examined.

This will look at the things beyond ant, including Cactus, which anyone 
doing app-server side dev should consider for running their tests. All 
are welcome

Registration for the conference is up:,id,368,nodeid,484.html

Please come and join the rest of the apache community for a week. If 
it's anything like last year's in Stuttgard, its going to be a fun few days.
