Spring Boot makes it very easy to create Spring based applications. Spring Boot takes an opinionated view of the Spring platform and third-party libraries, allowing us to get started with a minimal configuration. For example we can develop a Jave EE based web application without any configuration files. Not even a web.xml file is required!

Our developer conference Cadec with over 150 developers, mostly locals from Göteborg, have taken place recently. Nearly 60 of these developers also attended one of our three hands-on-tutorials. All three tutorials are on Github and open for anyone to work through, so if you’d like an intro to any of these domains, please feel free [...]
As almost everybody knows; one of the main benefits with Apache Cassandra is the possibility to create column indexed time series, i.e. use TimeUUIDType as comparator and you get a chronologically arranged list of indexed column names and an excellent performance when performing slice queries.
If millisecond precision is good enough for you to create an unique [...]

Soi-toolkit and the upcoming Mule Studio (currently in beta) are two tools that simplify development of services and integrations based on Mule ESB. This article describes how these two tools complement each other to make the development even more simplified (and fun ☺).

One common setup is to have one for each staging environment (development, test, customer, education, qa, production) and one for each developer and tester in the project. Maybe you even need a set of schemas free to use for anyone at special occasions. If the application is [...]
In a project I have been working in recently a strange problem appeared.
We had a third-party dependency provided by the application server and as a consequence the same dependency marked as provided in our maven build script. In one of our own classes we called a static method in class supplied by the third-party dependency.
