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...

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...

Introduction to Class Diagram
In any project's planning phase, the programmer should describe the behaviour of the different objects that are required to satisfy business use cases. However objects can't emerge from nothing, so you need a template that describe the type of objects that the system will have. As a result, you will need to show a diagram with all the classes involved and their...

Why do we need to program?
Technology is part of our life. The world is changing daily and everything is getting automated. Learn to program is the creative way we can take our ideas to the next level and express solutions to society. By designing programs, we learn several abilities like critical reading, analytical thinking and create synthesis. The programmer defines the problem, plans a...

One day I found myself in the situation that I had to write a unit test which checks whether my code is annotated in a particular way. I wondered how one could do that without doing an integration test that actually processes that annotations. My first idea was to use the Reflection API, which in fact worked, but was not looking smart. In fact, I wanted to have a Hamcrest matcher instead, since...

In this post we will be looking at code for a system designed to integrate all of the devices used to provide surveillance and security to extensive physical premises such as malls, campuses, and industrial parks. The approach I am taking involves the actor paradigm and the Java programming language. The selection of actors for this type of application is based on a number of...

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....

This post introduces a new Java actor based open source sub-project of the project "Learning Actors in Java". This work will develop a premises guardian system. A premises guardian system is a distributed application whose purpose is to support the physical protection of premises such as office buildings, campuses, apartment complexes, shopping malls, etc. Protecting information...

Configuration of an actor system affects the way in which the Akka actor libraries and microkernel interact with actors. The visibility of a configuration is limited to the specific actor system with which the configuration has been associated. The effective configuration for any given actor system is a merger of three sources. In Fig. 1 below the precedence of...

#How to run the dev test cases
All of the test cases can't be ran on the windows platform because the firefox can't support the ajax and JSF based on the windows platform very well. If you want to ran the tests, please check out all of the codes to the linux, ubuntu or mac platform.
1). Download the firefox and install it, On my platform, I...

Swing is not dead, still. While a whole lot of evangelists try to talk it dead, it is still part of the JRE. While SWT is not, still. And while JavaFX is not, still. Dispite all hypes and rumors. It is not even declared to be deprecated or obsolete. So in fact, there is no other real alternative to Swing as long as the GUI must work solely with JRE means (I won't say AWT is an alternative). And...

The 15th anniversary of OSCON showed its interest in diversity, and continuing to broaden the market for open source technology. I saw a lot of discussions on how to get people interested, and keep people involved. It was remarkably open to all sorts of ideas on how to keep open source going into the future.
I started with Tim Berglund’s GitHub Power Tools, which was filled with people who had...

OSCON 2013 (Open Source CONvention) is underway in Portland, Oregon. Even if you can't be there, you can still participate by watching the keynote sessions, which will be live-streamed on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. While all the keynotes are likely to be quite good (I found them to be so when I was at OSCON some years ago), several keynotes in particular stand out for me (all times are US...

Have you wanted to do something with asynchronous I/O? I did. After doing some work with Node.js, I wanted to find a way to get some of the goodness of its programming model for Java.
The Acteur project is the result - a framework for building scalable, asynchronous web applications using Netty + Guice - was the result. The programming model is a little unusual - you treat constructors as...

Not so long ago Mark Halvorson mentioned in his presentation at the Magnolia Conference 2012 that he doesn't understand why he can't have versioning for templates in Magnolia the same way he has it for content. Then I thought why not? Should be pretty straightforward.
The first implementation was indeed easy. Similar to what Magnolia does when dealing with DMS documents - I just configured a...
