Visit the Red Hat booth to see OpenShift by Red Hat in action, join the (more...)
is just a couple of days away, and I was invited to give two presentations. One of them is about my favorite topic: Security and Java EE. It is designed to fulfill two goals. On the one side to introduce the typical Java EE developer to the overall application security process and main objectives. But also to look at the details about what Java EE has to offer when it comes to typical requirements. (more...)
I decided to take the Spring Security demo at the following link , and add Bootstrap to it. In the end it's basically the same code and the Form Based Login will accept one user "pas/welcome1
Here is the updated demo with Bootstrap added to the UI pages. You can deploy this to Bluemix using the "Deploy to Bluemix
" directly from GitHub and it will as you to Sing (more...)
One of the other cloud announcements that caught my eyes on Open World was ABCS, the Application Builder Cloud Service. A tool for the Line of Business user to create simple web and/or mobile application by drag and drop in the web browser. Simple add components out of a menu on the page, rearrange them and edit them the way you want in the WYSIWYG editor.
The tool either creates business objects from scratch in (more...)
Using Advisor to increase the quality of your application.
For the last post in this series, I want to end with something that will help you improve the overall quality of your apex applications. That something is called: “advisor”.
The easiest way to access advisor is through the edit page. If you press the “utilities” button, and then select the option “check”, you will end up in an advisor report for the current page.
I got off the stage at WJAX in Munch just a couple of minutes ago. And while my co-worker Jan was talking about this amazing customer success story AMADEUS
, I had the pleasure to base his thoughts and ideas a bit and talk about how DevOps can be done with OpenShift and Docker Images from a developers perspective.Microservices and DevOps
If you have hundreds or even more container running in production everything isn't (more...)
I've just published an article on Medium about the missing sister of SQL. I think there is a fundamental mistake we’ve been making in using SQL. We use it both to ask a question and format the answer and I think this is just wrong. You can read the article at this link.
(Sorry for the broken link in the previous post and a big thank you to the person who sent us a (more...)

JavaOne has been a blast for all of us. The biggest community gathering for all Java ecosystem enthusiasts. And there's been a lot of networking plus great content. Red Hat had a packed schedule for the mini theater sessions on the booth and I wanted to point you to the available recordings on the Red Hat Developers event page
. There's been a great coverage around all recent topics. Especially around Java EE 7, Microservices, Testing, (more...)
The Oracle SOA Cloud Service is online and you can check it out on the Oracle SoaCS Cloud
page. This SoaCS offers you all the functionality the SOA Suite offers you on premise. In the cloud, Oracle has the same red stack strategy as they have on premise. This means the SoaCS runs on Oracle hardware and the Oracle database. This forces you to have a DbCS as well.
To get the SoaCS, you follow (more...)
JavaOne 2015 just came to an end and it was a great community event again. I gave two sessions and a HOL with Rafael
. One of the sessions actually is my favorite: The talk about how ESBs would look like, if they were done today.What? ESBs? I thought that is the past?
That is what I usually tend to also say. But, system integration has come a long way, from point-to-point connections between individual (more...)
One of the big announcements this year was the Oracle Private Cloud, basicly, the Cloud will come to your on premise data center! Oracle provides the exact same service for the Private Cloud as they do for the Public Cloud. The given timeframe on the Private Cloud is early next calendar year.
The interesting thing here is that Inderjeet mentioned in his presentation that the Private Cloud will have the same pricing module as the (more...)
I got an email from Manning recently and have to admit, that I didn't even know about the book they were asking me to review. And this is a shame in various dimensions. The book is about Arquillian, which is my favorite integration testing framework and it is written by two fellow friends Alex and Jason. Time to take a more detailed look and point my fellow readers to this newest member in the Arquillian (more...)
The whole stack of Fusion Middleware 12c was launched just before open world. This means there is also a new, cooler and better version of Oracle Application Development Framework (ADF) out! It was not too hard to follow all the session about ADF on open world this year, there were not that many to begin with.
So what is new? To start with, the infrastructure, we can now use JDK 8 in ADF and (more...)
Even more than the previous years combined, this Open World was about the Cloud! The cloud is inevitable, so it seems. During my stay at Open World, I tried to find out more about the different cloud products, including their official acronyms.
To help my future self, but maybe some other people along the way, I created an overview of the clouds I met. This sure is not a full and completed list, but the (more...)
One of the most heard questions is what is the different from Oracle JET with Oracle ADF? Will the one replace the other? Or (more...)
