Web Services and XML
For the purpose of creating a nice API for my new project Caligo (more on this in a future blog post), I was looking for a simple solution to access REST web service in Scala.
Here is a little code challenge !
I'm actually working on a text-mining/semantic web application focused (for the moment) on biomedical informations and developed in Java. We are using external tools for text-mining analysis and unfortunatly theses tools don't handle HTML pretty well ... If we send raw HTML to the text-mining service, he simply break. So we must convert HTML to plain-text before processing text, and because the tools return identified words by giving their positions, we must translate theses position (or indexes) to find corresponding word in the original HTML.
I created a simply implementation and posted it on gist.github.com ... can you make it better ?
I'v just published an integration module for using GridGain with Spring Batch. Using this module you can distribute Spring Batch processing inside a GridGain grid with the implementation of remote chunking.
During implementation of the NTLM authentication into our application, I wanted to achieve failover to standard login page (html form) if NTLM authentication fail.
I'v migrated code from spring-security 2.0.5 to be able to use NTLM on spring-security 3.0.2. NTLM isn't supported anymore official by SpringSource but after some refactoring I was able to use NTLM without problems.
For the purpose of implementing a SSO (Single Sign On) system into our application, I investigated the use of spring-security and successfully implemented it using NTLM and Crowd.
