It has been a long time since I posted anything on java.net. However, I've been working on a new open-source project recently that may be of interest so I thought I would mention it:
From the project's README:
"WebRPC is a mechanism for executing remote procedure calls via HTTP. It is an intentionally simple protocol that is designed primarily to address common...

Here are my notes for one that caught my eye, Using Spark, Kafka, Cassandra and Akka on Mesos for Real-Time Personalization. This is a very dense but well delivered presentation by Patrick Di Loreto who helped develop a...

GeekOut 2015 Summary
I last had the pleasure of visiting the lovely Baltic city of Tallinn in 2012, when I presented JSF 2.2 and the Rockstar talk at GeekOut 2012. Now that I've got something new (for me anyway) to talk about I made the cut and was invited back to present Servlet 4.0 at GeekOut 2015. Attendence was capped at 400, giving this conference a very exclusive feel. Indeed, 99% of...

ConFESS 2015 Wrap Up
Hard on the heels of JavaLand was ConFESS. This was the eighth installment of the conference that started life in 2008 as JSF Days, switching to the name "ConFESS" in 2011. The name stands for the "Conference for Enterprise Software Solutions". Last year, ConFESS was held as a partnership with JavaLand in Brühl Germany. Neither party was satisfied with how that...

JavaLand 2015 Wrap Up
After months of preparation, it all came down to three days of intense execution, and I was just one speaker. I can only marvel at the logistical acumen that was on display from the JavaLand and DOAG team. I had an action packed agenda: two conference sessions, two Early Adopter's Area (EAA) session, and one training day session. Thrown into the mix were a couple 1:1...

Nexmo is a four year old startup headquartered in San Francisco but with the engineering team based out of techhub London; and is already one of the worlds largest cloud communications companies (cloud communications provides any application with the ability to...

Imagine if, for example, the hypervisors that run EC2 were compromised - imagine almost every business you deal with online compromised, all at once. This is the never-talked-about problem with the cloud - over on my timboudreau.com blog.

This post will help you get started using Apache Spark DataFrames with Scala on the MapR Sandbox. The new Spark DataFrames API is designed to make big data processing on tabular data easier.

SIP Servlet 2.0 makes it possible to use CDI with SIP Servlet applications. It supports SIP Servlet POJOs as component classes that qualify as CDI managed beans. It also defines SIP specific CDI beans and scope types. Lets explore each of them.

Recent Ripple of JSF Extensions
My colleague Manfred Riem tipped me off to a new framework built on JSF, ButterFaces. This whimsical name started an amusing Twitter thread, but also, and much more importantly brought several other new JSF extensions to light. This is the sort of thing that I used to look to Kito Mann's JSF Central Frameworks Page for, but it seems that needs an update. So, in...

In an earlier post I wrote about Getting to Know the Developer Cloud Service. There wasn't an IDE used in that post and I'm a big fan of IDEs. So in this post we'll look at how Eclipse, in combination with the Oracle Developer Cloud Service, can be used to support the complete application lifecycle, from inception to production. In between we'll create bugs, create code branches, initiate code...
