I previously blogged about Integrating Telstra Public SMS Api as shown below.
Here I show how I integrated Telstra Public WIFI Api into IBM Bluemix. This Api from Telstra is documented as follows. You need to register on http://t.dev
to get the credentials to use thier API which I have previously done which then enables me to integrate it onto Bluemixhttps://dev.telstra.com/content/wifi-api
Once again here is the (more...)

I mentioned dynamic stretching table height with the autoHeightRows property. However, I have noticed people are having more troubles with stretching the height of the table.
This time I will focus on stretching your table to fill the total page height. We start with a simple ADF table on the employee table, showing all employees. Although I have seen more complex questions, including regions and more components in the structure, it (more...)
One of my recent writings got posted on O'Reilly's Radar. It explores the future of development projects and teams while using all the new xPaaS services offered by today's clouds. While the article is more a thought leadership piece based on a vision Mark Little sketched earlier, it also has some aspects in it, which you can find in projects as of today already.xPaaS - All The PaaS OfferingsGartner

In the post below I will show how I integrated Telstra public SMS Api into my Bluemix catalog to be consumed as a service. This was all done from Public Bluemix using the Cloud Integration Service.
Step 1 - Create a T.DEV account
In order to get started you need to create an account on http://dev.telstra.com
in order to be granted access to the SMS API. Once access is granted you need (more...)
Last year was my first year at Devoxx Morocco
. Oh, I forgot. Back in the days, it was still called JMaghreb. And I was really curious to go there, because of a couple of reasons. First of all, I never visited Morocco before. But second of all, my dear friend Badr
said, that it is an amazing conference and I just had to come. It din't work out before and I felt guilty to not (more...)
Just upgraded to to Intellij IDEA 14.1.4 and found that the Spring Initializr web page for quickly creating spring boot applications has been added to the New Project dialog. The web site I normally drive new spring boot applications from as follows, is now part of IntelliJ IDEA which is great.
Some screen shots of this.

Mainly: You do not want to pick the tool that’s hot this year.
(picture from blog above)
The reason is that choosing this year’s hot framework is an unnecessary leap of faith that places your project at risk. What happens if you choose wrong? You’ll watch your application (more...)
If you keen to know more about the IBM Bluemix garage which is also coming to melbourneshortly this URL is the main page for that. Some good videos here detailing what the Garage stands for.https://www.ibm.com/cloud-computing/bluemix/garage/
I’ve just been troubleshooting an ADF application that ran fine on one environment and not on another. After some searching, I discovered that a script had not been run on one of the environments so the database was different.
That reminded me of a simple database check that I often include in my applications: I simply calculate a hash value of all tables and views with an SQL statement like this:
By default if you push a java application into public Bluemix you will use the Liberty java buildpack. If you want to use tomcat you can do that as follows.
1. Show the buildpacks available as follows> cf buildpacks
2. The buildpack which uses Tomcat is as followsjava_buildpack
3. Specify you would like to use the buildpack as shown below when using cf push pas-props -d mybluemix.net -i 1 -m 256M -b (more...)
In one of my projects I ran into a requirement where the end user needs to be presented with default values in the table filters. This sounds like it is a common requirement, which is easy to implement. However it proved to be not so common, as it is not in the documentation nor are there any Blogpost to be found that talk about this feature. In this blogpost I describe how to implement this.
Weblogic server comes with a shared library so you can deploy JAX-RS 2.0 applications; but is limited to Jersey version 2.5.1 and the instructions for changing this are not entirely obvious or straightforward
. I have recently joined a new team at Oracle and one of the first things I did was to look at upgrading the dependent libraries. Now I have talked to the Jersey team and they don't support this combination; (more...)
In many cases – when talking about Java 8 – lambda-functions are the first thing that comes up. I found it a concept hard to grasp, as it slightly changes the way you think about coding. In this blog, I would like to show you some very simple examples, and explain what is what in the lambda world.
In versions prior to Java 8, we had SAM interfaces : Single Abstract (more...)
