We began creating our second Java application five years after we began the first app. We were hoping the second application would give us a chance to use additional Java technologies. We began by gathering all of the known functional requirements and matched them to the various Java-related technologies we knew of. The result was a high-level technical architecture of the application. This...

As we began our Java adventure at Amway Corp 10 years ago, one of the most important tasks we had to do was to create our Object Model. We had a variety of Java objects that we were planning to use in our application. How were they going to be "wired" together inside of the application? After 4 weeks of Object-Oriented, J2SE, J2EE training; we set out to define our Object Model. This model was...

As we began to learn about Java technologies at Amway Corp, we were introduced to UML (Unified Modeling Language). We became interested in the modeling aspect of UML to assist in the analysis and design phases of our Java project. So we decided to try our hand at modeling with UML. It began with 2 week-long training classes. 1) Object-Oriented Analysis with UML 2) Object-Oriented Design with UML...

In order to successfully migrate our mainframe application to a Java/application server based solution, we had to figure out how to migrate our batch processes. We had a very good start, in achieving this, by utilizing the LaunchClient command and J2EE Client programs. It was just a matter of putting the remaining pieces together into a working solution. But we were running into a lot of trouble...

Our first Java application (10 years ago) was a migration of a legacy application. The legacy application consisted of a number of screens and a number of batch processes. Migrating the screens to Java technology seemed straight forward. In theory, they would be a direct use of the MVC pattern (EJB, JSP, Servlet). Easy. But what about the batch processes? They didn't seem to fit the MVC pattern....

During the initial architecture and analysis of our J2EE-based application, one Java issue generated a lot of attention on our team : Enterprise Java Beans or EJBs. Should we use EJBs? What flavor of EJBs should we use? At the time, we received no practical advice on EJB usage. We got a lot of general advice. "Use what is best for you, etc." Quite often, we were referred to a diagram with a lot...

In the beginning, our development team had no Java experience at all. Most of us were mainframe developers with a decade or so of IT experience. We realized that not only did we need Java training, but we needed training on object-oriented concepts as well. It seemed like a very challenging goal to achieve. One of the reasons we chose our particular Java software tools vendor is because their...

10 years ago, when we were decided to use Java technology to create a new application, for use at Amway Corp; we thought it was sufficient to say, "We are using Java!". We were wrong... We quickly realized that there was Java 2 Standard Edition and there was Java 2 Enterprise Edition. Since we were architecting our application to run in an application server-based environment, we concluded that...

Hello all. My name is Larry Fernandez and I am a Principal Software Developer in IT. I work for Amway Corp in Grand Rapids, Michigan. March 2012 was my company's 10-year anniversary using Java. We have over 1 million lines of J2EE code in production, with more on the way. I have been here since our "Java" beginnings and I have played many roles (developer, architect, project manager, etc.). We...

Prior to last year's JavaOne, I was in contact with Ryan Cuprak, president of the Connecticut Java Users Group (USA). The plan was that we'd get together at some point during JavaOne and chat. As it turned out, once JavaOne started it quickly became a whirlwind for me (and for Ryan, who presented at least 4 sessions at the conference). I was on the way to the airport on the last day of the...

Java Tools

For us at Amway Corp, a key part of creating batch processes, with Java, was using the LaunchClient command and J2EE Client applications. We felt we were very close to being able to run our Java batch processes on the application server. But more trials and tribulations were ahead of us. We created a J2EE Client application\program that would call a "hello world" EJB. After deploying the code to...

Java Patterns

When we starting planning how we were going to use Java technology at Amway (10 years ago); we realized we had many decisions to make about standards to adopt, practices to learn, architectures to use, patterns to follow, etc. Fortunately for us, there were many sources of information to help us figure all of this out. Unfortunately for us, there were many sources of information to help us figure...

                 Easy-Cassandra is a framework ORM API and a high client for Apache Cassandra in java, with this is possible persist information from the Java Object in easy way. For this is only necessary add some annotations in some fields and your class. It works like an abstraction's tier in the Thrift, doing call for Cassandra. The Easy-Cassandra...

Welcome to the 198th issue of The Java(tm) Specialists' Newsletter sent to you from Chania in Greece. My readers in colder climates frequently get annoyed when I tell them that "life's a beach". They imagine us having constant sun here. It's not true. We do sometimes have torrential rains and cold weather. It even snows here occasionally. In fact, the delivery...

    Nowadays the Enterprise applications beyond persist String and number also can save file. Persist this information is very interesting, for example, a civil process there are information about the process (name of author, date, number of protocol) and the document which represents, or a twett with an image. In Apache Cassandra, you can save file, but for large file you should use...

This article has the main objective show a little example for persist information in Cassandra using java. For demonstrated the persistence with Cassandra will used the Easy-Cassandra, a framework open source for use this SGBG in an easy mode.   @ColumnFamilyValue(nome = "person")// public class Person implements Serializable {   private static final long...

Note this blog is obsolete, see https://www.manorrock.com/blog/ for the current blog  In the previous articles we have concentrated on testing using Glassfish. But can you use the same recipe to do testing on Weblogic. The answer is YES, but ..... Yea you know there is always a caveat. First make sure you have Weblogic installed properly. Note I did the testing with the latest 12c version,...

Note this blog is obsolete, see https://www.manorrock.com/blog/ for the current blog  In the previous article we described how to do testing with multiple containers. But since joining the Glassfish team I have wondered how can I test applications against different versions of JSF on Glassfish? As it turns out it is actually quite straightforward. This blog entry shows you how to do it. It...

Recently I had the privilege of writing an article for Java Tech Journal about using HTML5 Server Sent Events in a JSF 2 User Interface.  I've made that article available here.
