Middleware Thoughts

In the ongoing battle with Websphere integration.

JTA seems to work nicely. Although I had only tested connection pool setup and used user transaction config.

Next step is to try XA mode where the JMS guys are hitting a snag.

No luck on running Websphere in OS X . This is where Glassfish rocks, OS X support.

OFW quickies

The past few days was terribly disappointing. I should have listened to my instincts and forget about being idealistic.

Trouble is, I believe people could always change for the better.

But the saying goes, in a foreign land, sometimes you have to be most wary NOT of other cultures, but of your own.

Apparently my so called Kababayan, whom I have been helping, whom I have defended, whom I considered a friend, took a point of no return and unleashed his frackin foul mouth on me, in our own language, for no apparent reason. His sorry excuse is that I raised my voice. Which as a matter of fact he assumed, because I did not. But a sorry excuse nevertheless, because if thats the case, then is it justifiable to do the same for the countless of times he raised his voice?

Sometimes I really don't understand people, crab mentality and jealousy really screws them up.

But life goes on, I had enough of his sensitivity and paranoidal shit.

Anyway, good thing I was brought up to be a better person, at the end of the day, that is more important.
