Java Enterprise

The usual Java EE BoF at DevoxxUK was another chance for community members to meet and discuss the past, present, and future of Java EE. The gathering happened on the first anniversary of Java EE 7 and so allowed us to focus on what happened in the past year and start focusing on what

WildFly tooling is available in JBoss Developer Studio (Eclipse), NetBeans, and IntelliJ. While JBoss Developer Studio and IntelliJ provided in-built support for WildFly, and an extra plugin had to be installed for NetBeans. Not a big deal but NetBeans is more known for a seamless out-of-the-box experience. Starting with today's nightly, WildFly community is a step closer to that now! This means...

I’m happy to report that the 2014 edition of the Web Framework Smackdown is shaping up to be a good one. This year we have a solid lineup, and for the first time we are going beyond Java with the inclusion of Misko Hevery representing AnguarJS and Pete Hunt representing React. Representing a more Java-centric approach to UI we have myself (representing JavaEE and JSF) and Joonas Lehtinen...

Using the Java 8 Date Time Classes with JPA! With the Java 8 SE release, developers get a splendid new best-in-class Date-Time API. Wouldn't it be nice if you could use it with JPA? Not so fast. JPA and for that matter JDBC know nothing about the new classes, and if you use them in your entities, JPA will map them to BLOBs in your database by default. This happens in DDL or database creation, in...

Note this blog is obsolete, see https://www.manorrock.com/blog/ for the current blog In JSF you will see people from time to time use rendered="false". But what does it mean? Well, because in JSF the actual request is page based it builds up a representation of the page when the page gets loaded. When it is building up this representation it builds up the entire page, even the parts that are not...

On January 2nd I received a New Year's gift, my "Welcome to Oracle Cloud" email. I had requested a 30-day free trial back on October 17, when the Oracle Cloud was first announced, and had basically forgotten all about it. If you haven't already, request a trial account for yourself: The Oracle Cloud integrates very nicely with Eclipse, NetBeans and JDeveloper, where you can develop and...

I've been developing webapps pretty much since the start of the web in the second half of the 90s, and in Java ever since the first edition of Java EE. During that time, I've met many people and have seen many different approaches to both the development and the testing of the code. One of the funnier parts of web app testing was a testing method used by one of the people I worked with. Between...

Server-Sent Events (SSE) is part of HTML5. SSE is a simple, undirectional communication from server to browser. It allows server to push data to client once a connection is established. The entire point of SSE is to make it easy for the server to push messages to the browser, once the browser has first established a connection to the server. These messages are of the form "field: value" with...

To be more accurate, what does not increase...

To do data mining, the system need to store multi billion public posts in the database and run the classification process on them.
