In this two-part article series by Anghel Leonard, we will discuss the main steps that will offer us a functional environment for developing, running, and testing J2EE applications by using the Eclipse IDE, JBoss Tools, and a J2EE Application Server. In this article we will understand how to connect a J2EE Application Server with the Eclipse IDE, through the JBoss AS plug-in.Read JBoss AS plug-in and the Eclipse Web Tools Platform in full
After we set up a content management system and create the navigation structure for our site, we can add content to it. We will learn how to do this in the following article. We will also learn how easy a CMS will be for our authors. In this article by Nirav Mehta, we will :
- Add content to our site—pages, images, and more

In this article by Jani Hartikainen, we'll look at PHP's "magic" features:
Magic methods, which are class methods with specific names, are used to perform various specialized tasks. They are grouped into two: overloading methods and non-overloading methods. Overloading magic methods are used when your code attempts to access a method or a property which does not exist. Non-overloading methods perform other tasks.
Magic functions, which are similar to magic methods, but are just plain functions outside any class. Currently there is only one magic function in PHP.
Magic constants, which are similar to constants in notation, but act more like "dynamic" constants - their value depends on where you use them.
We'll also look at some practical examples of using some of these, and lastly we'll check out what new features PHP 5.3 is going to add.Read PHP Magic Features in full
In the previous article we've seen how to test our rules using Guvnor, as well as using FIT for rule testing against requirements documents. This article by Paul Browne, shows how to test your rules further. It shows how to unit test the rules by using Junit. Unit testing has the advantage of documenting the code because it gives a working example of how to call the rules. It also makes your rules and code more reusable.Read Testing your JBoss Drools Business Rules using Unit Testing in full
