Web Applications

Last bunch of the entries have been all about the code. Today let's try something different. Partly because at the time of writing I'm just 34 thousand feet above Atlantic and really don't feel like coding anything, but partly also because i have been thinking about the problem I'm going to describe for while already. I'm sure most of you have seen similar issue in the past as well or are...

I wrote about Magnolia cache few times already since it have been re-implemented for Magnolia 3.6. And it seems like with Sprint 4 of Magnolia 4.3 it came back to bite me. There was a bunch of tickets related to various aspects of the cache. Most of it was related to the fact that the default cache key (only URI) was not enough for many installations which were...

Last time we looked at writing command and shortening the URLs using simple TinyURL API. This time, lets try to take this one step furter and generate URLs that are mobile-users friendly, i.e. URLs that can be easily recognized and processed by various mobile devices. Such are urls in QCode or DataMatrix scan codes. I'm sure almost everybody have seen those somewhere already, be it on printouts...

Originally, I wanted to write about Magnolia-Twitter integration, but at some point I've realized such integration is so simple that there's no point writing about it. So instead, let's look how you can write custom commands for Magnolia. Anybody who seriously developed on Magnolia for while had to write a Command sooner or later. They are incredibly simple, yet very powerful. Part of it is that...

Is it possible to do an A/B testing with Magnolia? The question popups often in the discussions with potential Magnolia users from various e-business companies. This really depends on what you want to test. The design of whole site or just best position for an ad on a single page or layout of one page or ...  If you want to do it on the site level the easiest (with current release - 4.2...

Yet another week of development is nearly over (at least for me). What was this week all about? Apart from the really low temperatures outside (on Tuesday it was -24C at 4am), I focused mainly on extending the multi-site support in Magnolia. This feature exists for years already. But what it really means in context of Magnolia? In general you can setup the server to run mulptiple domains and you...

Swing

Finally ... SwingX-WS 1.0 have been released. And no, don't ask, I don't have any explicit release notes for that. No bells and whistles. The release is just an official version of something that has been lying in repository for quite some time. BTW, if you would like to become a committer on this project please let us know on the SwingLabs forum. You can find the files at SwingLabs download page...

There was a bunch of good things to see at this years Devoxx. My personal highlights are ScalaTest (you definitively want to look into this when testing concurrency in any java code ... the best way to test different race scenarios I've seen so far). Another highlight was the amount of work done on JavaFX yet. The new UI for the clickable gui builder shown briefly by Tor ... surely you remember...

GUI

It's already five months since the version 1.0 have been announced at JavaOne. Today, new version of the SwingX have been released. This release is first Java 6 only compatible release. Setting base line to Java 6 allowed us to drop all the extra code necessary to maintain backwards compatibility for functionality added to the cora Javasince the release of Java 5. So as of today, you can benefit...
