to DSA or not to DSA DSA I mean "Domain Specific Application". In my experience it is often better (though not necessary faster) to build an application from the group-up (using as many libraries as possible ofcoz) than using some product e.g. a CMS or portal product. The reason I guess is instead of trying to fit your app into some specific box, you rather build our own box using building blocks - to put it in another way, you write the system to match the customer requirements rather than trying to match the platform requirements.. it's that simple.. (I think)

Hit me one more time :-)

Support Open Source Software

I guess most developers and corporations which in some way utilizes the java platform have used open source software in some way or manner (not speaking of operating system software here). There's a huge amount of free (as in beer) libraries at your disposal when using the java platform (even more than you asked for :-) ), so why not give a bit (or two) back to OSS community and participate in the development of one or more projects.. Its the participation age (so Schwartz says)..
