I’ve been doing apex for about 7 years now, and along the way I discovered a few things that made my life as a developer a lot easier. I made a list of 5 things thar I wish I had known wen I just started. Those things will be explained to you in a series of 5 posts.
One of the most tiresome things to do when managing multiple applications is to keep things like (more...)
Developer interview Friday. Today it is my pleasure to welcome Niko Köbler (@dasniko
In the previous blogpost we discussed a way to reduce the amount of global variables by using namespaces. Today, we will be looking into a different way to hide functions and variables.
Sometimes you want to run (more...)
I created the first version of the JavaFX browser inside Oracle Forms.
It still needs some adjustments, but the first version can be found at https://sites.google.com/site/oraont/jxbrowser-bean
I created a Form with two java beans components. I added the JavaFX browser with a socket server to one component and I added a socket client to the other component. With the socket server I made it possible to communicate to the java browser.
Here is how simple Spring Boot makes saying Hello World web based application with no IDE and no no need to package it up. Nearly as easy as NodeJS

team have announced the release of Nexus 2.1.1
which is a minor update that now works with the Oracle Maven Repository.
I was going to write a bit up about it but Manfred Moser from Sonatype has already put together a blog and video on it:
With the new Nexus 2.11.2 release we are supporting the authentication mechanism used for the Oracle Maven repository in both Nexus OSS and (more...)
We recently upgraded our capability in the IBM public cloud. Before this new version you could build, test, and deploy apps on Bluemix by using open source Cloud Foundry technology. But now you have more choice bringing two new options as follows
1. IBM Containers Beta
Use IBM Containers to run apps and services in a hosted cloud environment. Port your existing applications to IBM Bluemix and make them publicly accessible and composable. Use a (more...)
The JBoss apiman project
did just release 1.0.3.Final this week
. It's mostly a bug fix release, with just a couple of relatively minor improvements. One particular feature, that made it's way into the framework since I last blogged about it is the support for plugins. Those plugins can easily be added to the system in order to provide additional functionality.Add Policies As Plugins
Currently the only functionality that can be contributed through (more...)
We know each other since some years now. And I am very very pleased to see, that we finally could make it happen to have him speaking at JavaLand
as a Keynoter. And what would be better for a JVM veteran than talking about this years anniversary: Happy Birthday Java!
Thank you Marcus, for taking the time!
I am looking forward to a beer or two at JavaLand! Follow his rumblings about dynamic languages on (more...)
Last post we noticed that variables can easily be attached to the global scope. This isn’t a good thing. The more variables are linked to the global scope the more chance you have creating conflicts.
A great way to reduce the impact of your code on the global object is to define namespaces. We do this by creating one global object that we extend with extra modules which on their turn can be extended with new (more...)
Sometime ago someone asked me some questions about the Enhanced java bean. That java bean was based on the JDIC (java desktop integration component) of sun. The project of jdic hasn't been updated for quite some time. So the java bean is getting harder to use.
So I was searching for a different solution, when I stumbled on JavaFX. I now have the following results:
This a JavaFX browser inside Oracle Forms. It now displays (more...)
You might have noticed that I am working on a series of blog articles
on using Selenium
to automate testing of Oracle ADF applications. This includes work on a little framework
to make this easier and a set of sample JUnit tests against the public Oracle ADF Faces 12c Components Demo
Getting the Faces 12c Component Demo running with test automation had some challenges. I wanted to write them down here in case somebody wants (more...)
is the Fastest way to build Maven-Based Java EE projects. And as such it already has awesome features to make your life as a developer even easier.
For the most part, people looking at Forge are likely interested in creating web-applications. There are plenty of ways to get started with the Forge basics. You can look at the quickstart section
or look at the github repository
. Just some short days ago Forge got (more...)
The post below shows how to create an IBM Bluemix server connection into the USA public hosted PaaS using Eclipse. It assumes you already have an existing account setup with http://bluemix.net/
1. Ensure you have added "IBM Eclipse Tools for Bluemix
" as shown in the marketplace installed items.
More info can be found here.http://marketplace.eclipse.org/content/ibm-eclipse-tools-bluemix
2. In the "Servers
" tab click the link to create a new server (more...)
I am working with a bunch of communities in JBoss and there is so much interesting stuff to talk about, that I can't wrap my head around every little bit myself. This is the main reason why I am very thankful to have the opportunity to welcome guest bloggers here from time to time. Today it is Jochen Mader, who is part of the nerd herd at codecentric. He currently spends his professional time coding Vert. (more...)
On March 27, 2014, the Spring community was happy to announce the Spring Framework 4.0.3. The reason why is that it was the first release of the Spring Framework with Java 8 support. Since then, the Spring team worked very hard to provide major updates for the Spring Framework to be even more supportive towards Java 8. As of September 4, 2014, the Spring Framework 4.1 has arrived with even more support towards the Java (more...)
