I've been reading a lot about Red Hat products lately and being interested in cloud and such since some years now, it's pretty obvious for me to look into the cloud offerings from Red Hat in more detail. Arun did a great overview about JBoss xPaaS
back in April this year and I thought it might be time to not only give you an overview but also point you to all the relevant information that (more...)
In the first part of these entries we discussed how to test your expressions, the importance of optimizing the appearance of a tLogRow component and how to handle windows and views within Talend. This time around, we will be talking about the different ways to get components into your job, how to trace your dataflow and how to easily sync columns. As last time, this post will be useful for both starting and experienced users.
Time flies and here is the third edition of the new podcast/screencast cross-over series "Developer Interviews". I had the chance to talk to Christian Posta (@christianposta

With only a few more weeks until JavaOne, I am still on the hunt for some good content recommendations. After I've looked at all the sessions from the Java Champions
it is time to see what Red Hat is going to offer this year. Beside the fact, that it is going to be a ton of interesting content you will also get a chance to meet all of them there and interact. If possible, I (more...)

I constantly blog about using DEPARTMENT/EMPLOYEE POJO'S with sample data. Here is how to create a file with data to load into GemFire to give you that sample set.Note: You would need to create POJO'S for Department/Empployee objects that have getter/setter for the attributes mentioned below.Dept Dataput --key=10 --value=('deptno':10,'name':'ACCOUNTING') --value-class=pivotal.au.se.deptemp.beans.Department --region=departments;put --key=20 --value=('deptno':20,'name':'RESEARCH') --value-class=pivotal.au.se.deptemp.beans.Department --region=departments;put --key=30 --value=('deptno':30,'name':'SALES') --value-class=pivotal.au.se.

Isn't it that time of the year again? Booking hotels and travels. Most of my fellow Java Champions (and former ACE Director fellows) are doing some kind of preparation for JavaOne and Oracle OpenWorld these days. Only a few more weeks to go and the content catalog is published. So I thought I might also spend an hour to look at good content. Let's start with talks given by Java Champions.

Good new out there. The recent nightly builds of NetBeans already contain the latest WildFly Plugin
. So you don't need to add it manually and can start working with your favorite application server right away.
Try it out and grep the latest nightly build
. Please keep in mind, that the nightly builds are developer builds and shouldn't be expected to be stable.Some first steps to get started:
Quick, how many different Web Service specifications are there?
- less than 20
- between 20 and 40
- more than 40
I was in doubt whether the answer would be 1) or 2) – after all, there is a lot of WS-* stuff. Turns out the answer is 3) – there are currently 50 web service specifications.
A technology with 50 specifications is unlearnable. The basics of web services is simple and useful, but the IT industry (more...)

Robot Framework is a generic test automation framework which has an easy-to-use tabular test data syntax and it utilizes the keyword-driven testing approach. This means we can write our tests in readable and understandable text.
If we combine this with the REST Management interface of WebLogic 12.1.3 we are able to test every detail of a WebLogic domain configuration and when we combine this
