This is the third part (part 1, part 2) of a multi-part video series where Lincoln Baxter (@lincolnthree) and I are interactively building a Forge addon to add Java EE 7 Batch functionality.
Part 1 showed how to get started with creating an addon, add relevant POM dependencies, build and install the addon using Forge shell, add a new command batch-new-jobxml, and add --reader, --processor, --...

JBoss Forge is the fastest way to build your Java EE applications, and not even tied to a particular IDE or an Application Server. Tech Tip #17 explained how to build a simple Java EE application rapidly, and deploy it on WildFly. JBoss Developer Studio provide a very neat integration with Forge as well. The instructions from the video are also explained in a text-based script here.

The Java is a platform which grown up quickly, for many rations such it can write once time and run anywhere, it runs languages on JVM. There is a myth that Java cannot compile its sources on run time, but it's truth?
Have a dynamic language is important to make some projects, for example, calculate taxes to different cities, so the source should be on the database and each city it puts the...

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...

Lets start with a small quiz: Can you find 3 differences in the pictures below?
Yeah, you got it. That was an easy one. :)
Surprisingly, implementing preview for extra asset types has been relatively simple as well. When coming up with the architecture of DAM, the Magnolia team chose to not generate previews and thumbnails of assets directly in the module, but rather delegate this functionality...

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...

Recently, we were tasked to develop a SAAS application for big data analysis. To do data mining, the system need to store multi billion public posts in the database and run the classification process on them.
Classification in our context is a slow, resource intensive and painful process to assign a topic or sentiment to any record in the database. The process can last up to 24 hours with our...

While parts of the cloud IT that are still being hyped are changing rapidly, the whole segment is not past the hype yet. The cloud report  that Gartner published 9 months ago still holds true today.
Reports of disillusioned customers of such solutions  are a clear sign that the hype might have reached its peak for most parts of cloud offerings, though. And while many articles discuss the...

This entry lists Ed’s picks for the brand new JavaLand conference. Many of the talks are in German, but there is enough English to make it worth your time. It looks like there is a lot more English content in day two. Also, the conference was endorsed by java.net editor Kevin Farnham in his blog post from Saturday, 1 March 2014.

I presented this demo at DevNexus 2014 in Atlanta today. It is Reza's demo with just a pinch more Java EE thrown in. This blog entry covers how to fully internationalize an AngularJS application with just a pinch of Java EE.
Reza hosts the code for this demo on his github. The demo has a chat client and a todo list. This blog entry only looks at the chat client, and assumes basic familiarity...

This blog entry describes an unsupported process for overwriting the version of Mojarra that comes bundled in WLS 12.1.2 and beyond with an arbitrary version (from groupId org.glassfish artifactId javax.faces). Sometimes it is necessary to upgrade the version of Mojarra that comes bundled in WebLogic Server with a different version, either newer or older. One such usage: the Mojarra team at...

Web Services and XML
It actually happened a few weeks ago already, but I simply didn't find the time to spread the word earlier -- just too much other stuff to do (see end of posting), so I tell you now: WebDAV Support for JAX-RS 1.2 is out!
What has happened since 1.1?
First of all, 1.2 is a complete internal overhaul, which not only finally is covered with unit tests rather completely (which revealed several...

Just recently I was engaged to assist with an application that wasn’t behaving. The application, running in a 1.7.0_45 JVM, relied heavily on a 3rd party SAAS framework. That vendor provided my client with a list of 26 different JVM flags that should be set. When faced with this long list of flags I couldn’t resist asking why all the flags and why these flags. After all there are more than 700...

I was very pleased to see the JFrog team take me up on my suggestion early this year that "Maybe the JFrog team will consider giving a presentation on how they put all this together at JavaOne this September". Unfortunately for me, the session (Building a Massively Scalable Cloud Service from the Ground Up) was already filled to capacity as I walked up to the door, so I was unable to attend....
