SSH User Keys Now a C-Suite Issue | @CloudExpo #Cloud #BigData #Security

JDJ - 9 hours 12 min ago
With so much on their plates, most C-level executives don’t have the bandwidth to think about SSH user keys. It would be much simpler to leave such details to the IT department – but that would be a mistake. Why? Because SSH means access – to an organization’s servers and data. The creation of SSH user keys is not a controlled process, which means that someone can create credentials without oversight. That fact should be enough to get the C-suite’s attention.

Detecting Java Race Conditions With Tests Part 2: Non-Atomic Updates

Java Lobby Announcements - 12 hours 41 min ago

If you update a field from different threads, you must make sure that between the read and the write from one thread the field is not updated by another thread. You can achieve this by using a synchronized block or the atomic compareAndSet method. But how can you test it?

Example of a Test

Let us look at an example of an incorrect synchronized class:

My Favourite Spring Data JPA Feature

Java Lobby Announcements - 13 hours 41 min ago

I like Spring Data JPA. It helps simplify my codebase, and most of the time frees me up from writing JPAQL or SQL. I’m also impressed by the complexity of query you can write using Spring Data. My favourite feature is returning the first or top records from a table.

Let's say I have a table tracking document versions -

[session] The Factory of the Future, Today By @Cisco | @ThingsExpo #IoT #BigData #DigitalTransformation

JDJ - 21 hours 12 min ago
IoT offers a value of almost $4 trillion to the manufacturing industry through platforms that can improve margins, optimize operations & drive high performance work teams. By using IoT technologies as a foundation, manufacturing customers are integrating worker safety with manufacturing systems, driving deep collaboration and utilizing analytics to exponentially increased per-unit margins. However, as Benoit Lheureux, the VP for Research at Gartner points out, “IoT project implementers often underestimate the complexity of IoT integration and overestimate the built-in integration capabilities of their IoT platforms.”

When people aren’t talking about VMs and containers, they’re talking about serverless architecture. Serverless is about no maintenance. It means you are not worried about low-level infrastructural and operational details. An event-driven serverless platform is a great use case for IoT. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Animesh Singh, an STSM and Lead for IBM Cloud Platform and Infrastructure, will detail how to build a distributed serverless, polyglot, microservices framework using open source technologies.

Microservices for Java Developers: Book Release [Announcement]

Java Lobby Announcements - Wed, 2016-06-29 21:52

I’ve just written a book that is now publicly available! The name of the book is “Microservices for Java Developers” (O’Reilly) and is a hands-on, step-by-step guide for building microservices with some popular Java frameworks like Spring Boot, Dropwizard, and WildFly Swarm! We also explore some of the non-functional requirements like safe deployments, exposing metrics, service interaction, service discovery, load balancing et. al. and how technology like Netflix OSS, Docker, and especially Kubernetes can help simplify the deployment and management of your microservices. Many many thanks to all of the reviewers who took the time to give feedback and for Red Hat for sponsoring my time especially Burr Sutter and the talented folks at O’Reilly who helped coordinate the effort and make it come to fruition.

I’ll have printed copies at DevNation/Summit (including a signing session Tuesday, June 28th at 3:30 at the Moscone Ctr.) and you can get a digital copy at the Red Hat Developers website. Stay tuned (@christianposta) as I may be working on part II :)

Announcing Java EE Microprofile

Java Lobby Announcements - Wed, 2016-06-29 16:35

The Java community has likely been the greatest factor in Java’s success and influence over the past 20+ years. This community has rallied and collaborated to improve the language and its capabilities through JSRs, libraries, APIs, frameworks, and more. Now Java EE has become “the dominant standard for companies building business-critical multi-tier enterprise applications.”

With that in mind, and with microservices architectures becoming ever more popular as monolithic applications hinder the advances of continuous delivery and integration, minimize performance, and lead to downtimes that are unacceptable for today’s technologies, there’s a new hurdle for the Java community to jump. Yesterday, the MicroProfile initiative was announced to inspire the community to overcome that hurdle together.
