A first look at Spring Boot, is it time to leave XML based configuration behind?

April 15th, 2014 by Magnus Larsson

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!
When [...]

C10k: Lightweight Java servers for large scaled realtime WebSocket communication

August 12th, 2013 by Magnus Larsson

According to my colleges that work with frontend technologies many of our customers have today started to use HTML5 to build single page web apps but most of them have not yet switched from old school HTTP to WebSockets when it comes to communicating with backend server applications.
WebSockets simplifies much of the complexity in HTTP [...]

“Is REST the future for SOA?”

August 12th, 2011 by Johan Eltes

I just read Boris Lublinsky’s article on “Is REST the future for SOA?“.
I think it makes a good job in clarifying that REST and SOA are different architecture styles, rather than merely a choice of protocol. I also like that he discusses the common case where people talk about REST when they actually mean http [...]

Never let an enterprise architect into a coding dojo

September 21st, 2010 by Johan Eltes

I’m an enterprise architect. My work is to define architectures that span systems, organizations and sometimes countries. Not because architectures become better if they do. No, because business-, enterprise- and pan-european integration projects depend on an agreed abstraction (in the sense of frameworks) of IT so that focus can shift from plumbing to system-level design. [...]

Another perspective on JAX-WS portability

January 7th, 2010 by Johan Eltes

JAX-WS is the Java-standard for Web-Service XML to Java POJO binding. It entered the scene in Java EE 5 and Java SE 6. I wrote a blog entry a while back on it’s advantages over the predecessor (JAX-RPC). With WSDL-first (contract-first) design, Java POJO:s are generated from WSDL and XSD source files. The resulting Java [...]

The ultimate source for schema versioning strategies

May 18th, 2009 by Johan Eltes

We are often asked to define WSDL- and schema design guidelines (contract-first) for clients. We have found a core set of guidelines that seem to work well for clients using XML_binding. The core challenge is to find a portable and reasonably useful approach to controlled evolution, supporting backwards- and forwards compatibility across service consumers and [...]

Deploy av portlets i WAS 6.1

April 21st, 2008 by Johan Eltes

Kraftfulla portalservrar – så som WebSphere Portal Server – är i många avseende mer lika integrationplattformar än applikationsservrar. Att utveckla, testa och deploya applikationer som publicerar s.k. portlets (enligt Java-standarden JSR-168) mot en full portal server är komplext för alla inblandade discipliner. Standarden WSRP (WebService Remote portlets) syftar till att frikoppla driften av en portlet-applikation [...]
