Installing the DocBook XML & XSLT files this evening. Been a few months since I last used that, so there will be some re-learning.

Same goes for Java, Tomcat, ANT, and everything else I need to use for this training. This may also be my excuse to learn/use Eclipse. I should ask if they plan on using it or not.

About Kevin Sonney

Kevin Sonney - who, contrary to popular opinion was NOT raised by wolves - grew up in central North Carolina. He fell into the technology field by accident in 1991, when he gave up the wild and crazy lifestyle of an on-air AM radio DJ to become a mundane technical support monkey. The technology industry has never really recovered from this. Kevin has worked for such names as IBM, Red Hat, webslingerZ, and Lulu Technologies (we won't mention the ones that didn't survive the experience). He currently works as a Linux Administrator for Apptio. In his spare time he rescues stray animals and plays video games with his two sons. His wife, we're sad to say, helps him get past the really hard bits. Kevin is still not very mundane, he just got better at hiding it.

    You could just install gcj-using versions of Tomcat, ant, et al ;)

    Very, very tempting, but not always practical. While GCJ is nearly complete these days, I’m writing this as portable, and gcj compiled versions of these packages for, say, Windows and Debian do not always exist.

    Everything I use has to be duplicatable on the student’s system to a great degree. While I might want to use the gcj versions on my final system, for a teaching system, I need to stick with the JDK aned JDC compiled versions.
