New old article available

I'm in the middle writing of another article and remembered I had an older one that got dropped in a site redesign.  People have been asking for it but it always seems to drop off my radar.  Well, I finally put it back online.  You can also find it in the page header later if you'd like.  It's a bit dated but most of it still applies.  Hopefully it'll still be helpful to others.  I should probably devote some "ink" to testng and maven since that is it own special little hell but that's for another time.
