ATOM vs RSS feeds - on javablogs

I recently added my blog to javablogs and provided my ATOM feed as it seems to be the new de facto "standard" for feeds.

I wondered why my blog entries only contained the header and not a small resume of my blog entries.

I switched to use my RSS as my feed and suddenly the resume was there?
To be sure I switched back to the ATOM feed format and the resume was gone again.

I have created this issue i JIRA.

Do you have a blog on and encounter the same behavior, try providing your RSS feed for javablogs instead:
