Java Web Services and XML

I will be presenting the following sessions at Silicon Valley Code Camp 2013. For those in the Bay Area, Silicon Valley Code Camp is on Oct 5,6 2013 in Foothill College, Los Altos. It is a very well organized conference by the developers for the developers. This year has 232 sessions and 4500 registrations and am always amazed at the way Peter Kellner and his team pull this off! These are my...

Backbone.js gives structure to web applications by providing models with key-value binding and custom events, collections with a rich API of enumerable functions, views with declarative event handling, and connects it all to your existing API over a RESTful JSON interface. JAX-RS provides a standardized API for building RESTful web services in Java. This example will show how to...

My JavaOne 2013: Wrapup This blog entry summarizes my session participation at JavaOne 2013. I plan to update this entry with links to the content on Parleys.com as it becomes available. Sessions I Attended In general, speaking more than listening is a very bad way to live. I find this holds true at conferences as well. Here are the sessions I attended. I attended eight and presented six, so I...

Java Enterprise

What happens if you configure a Hadoop-centric scalable big data infrastructure running on the Amazon EC2 cloud, that's programmed to perform some very basic processing on delimited ASCII data records (about 30 characters in each record), and you feed it a single data record? How quickly do you think that massively powerful system would process that teensy, trivial input data set? Milliseconds?...

javax.servlet.http.HttpSession provides a way to identify an user across multiple HTTP requests and to store user specified information. In other words, it provides a support of stateful communications with the stateless HTTP protocol. For security and memory management, sessions need to be invalidated at a certain time. There are two related methods in HttpSession. HttpSession.invalidate() By...

Java Patterns

Government... Isn't interacting with it your favorite social pastime? What? It's not? OK, so what don't you like about it? What? You're saying that, in your country, you can't just log into your favorite government sites and experience speedy, reliable, secure services? I'll guess, then, that you must not live in Ecuador... Poor you! But, don't feel too bad. From what Java Champion Jeff...

Java User Groups

Recently, I was asked to participate in creating another Java application at my company. It was to be our team's third major Java application since 2002. We felt we had plenty of wisdom from our previous two Java applications to apply to our third one. One of our first steps was to form an application architecture sub-team. This sub-team's purpose was to provide the development team with a solid...

My company uses a large number of software applications to support all aspects of its business. These software applications are either "bought" or "built". The portions of the company that cannot be supported by purchased software are supported by custom developed, in-house, applications. A variety of technologies are used to create and build these custom applications. The Java framework has been...

A while ago, I was asked to evaluate another Java application that was being used at my company. It was a point-of-sale app, developed entirely "in-house" by one of our overseas affiliates. I wondered what their MVC model would look like. How different would their Java app be from the ones I have worked on? I started my evaluation by learning all I could about the architecture and design of this...

Very soon, it will be time for the annual Java One conference in San Francisco, California. Thousands of Java-fanatics will make the journey to my favorite city "by the bay" (and my home town). Thousands more Java-fanatics will not attend (including me) and wish they could. I hope all attendees will have a great and productive time at Java One 2013. My general advice to attendees is, "Make the...
