The J-Link driver for OpenOCD OpenOCD is finally ready and working with the AT91SAM7S-EK, with the NXT it still needs to be tested. A patch has been submitted to the OpenOCD mailing list.

Cocoon's XPathDirectory Generator (2006-06-06)

I'm now using Cocoon's XPathDirectory generator to collect news items for the front page. XPathDirectory allows to aggregate the content of several XML-documents in a directory into a single document, which is then processed further. So for a new item I can now just create an XML-file in a special news directory, and the items appear in the right order on the front page.

Welcome to my new web site (2006-05-28)

Two years ago I wanted to build my new website using some tool, as my previous web site had grown so large that doing everything by hand became tedious. But at the time I didn't find a suitable tool, so I only had a rudimentary site for the last two years.

Motivated by LEGO NXT I had a fresh look and decided to use "naked" Apache Cocoon. I also had a look at Apache Lenya and Apache Forrest, which are built on top of Cocoon, but they didn't fit my needs well, mostly they were too big.

There still is a lot of work to do, integrating all the old stuff from my research and teaching career at Saarbrücken and Nancy, creating better menus, if possible automatically, more semantic markup e.g. for news items like this, better modularity, support for multiple languages, ... let's see how it goes and how long it takes.
