xmlTRAM+: Using XML Technology to Manage Software Requirements and Architectures

This paper describes xmlTRAM+, which is another way using XML technology to manage software requirements and architectures.
I don't know, if there's something usable available - at least I didn't find anything.

Selected Software Engineering Books

Jason E. Robbins has a very good page with selected software engineering books.
They are grouped by the different stages of software engineering (requirements, configuration management, design, testing, ...) and provide a very good overview.
Check it out!

XML-based Software Requirements Specification

I just found this really useful project on xmlbasedsrs.
Maybe that's what I've been looking for many months ...

Bon Jovi concert in Vienna, Austria

Yesterday I was at the Bon Jovi concert in Vienna, the best band on god's earth!
I took some poor pictures with my smartphone. I don't know yet, if they're worth it to publish here.
Nevertheless it was yet better than the one's I've seen before.
They started at 20:30 and played until 23:10, started with classics like Like "Livin' on a Prayer", "Wanted Dead or Alive" and moved on to the newer songs like "Joe", "Everyday", "Misunderstood", ...
I look forward to the next concert.

Free SyncML Implementations

Finally I found something to test the SyncML capabilities of my new Sony Ericsson P800 Smartphone ;-)
* (has JBoss support)
* Do you know some more? Mail me!
Let's see, if I find a better way to synchronize all the PIM applications I'm using (P800, Outlook, KOrganizer, KAdressbook, Mozilla, ...) both at home and at work.

This is the second Weblog of Christian Burger, where he's going to publish his daily pics.
I wrote about it in the my weblog entry.

Weblog fever is spreading

My colleague Christian Burger has opened it's own Weblog.
I think hearing all the good things about Weblogs from me and from Matthew Langham in Paderborn last Wednesday couldn't keep him away any longer.
He told me that he wants to use it to take a photo every day and write some thing about it.
And he really wants to do it every day!

Sounds interesting...
I'll surely keep an eye on it.

Journey to Paderborn

I just returned from a two-day meeting in Paderborn with Armin Vogt, Guido Casper from s&n and my colleagues Christian Burger, Thomas Haginger, Andreas Köll and Christoph Takacs.
The meeting was intended for synchronizing our ideas for a project at our firm.

The landing (Air Berlin) at the Vienna Airport was a bit bumpy so that the oxygen masks at the next seat in front of us popped out ... but we survived it ;-)

Yesterday we had a very nice evening at the Brauhaus where Uwe Bröker, Carsten Ziegeler and Matthew Langham joined us.
Some photos were taken from this event, so perhaps you'll be able to see something.

In general I can say, that this journey was a great success (for both parties I hope ;-) and I'm looking forward to meet again in Vienna, Munich or Paderborn
