I think most agree that this years JavaOne had turned a corner. The dark cloud over the future of Java under Oracle’s stewardship had lifted and there was a lot more interesting things happening with the platform. The hot topic was Java 7, and its EE counterpart. Walking away from the conference I had some final thoughts:
Building a highly available and fault tolerant cloud platform comes with its share of challenges. What happens when components fail? What happens when the cloud itself experiences downtime? How is it possible to ensure customer apps are always available and their log data is never lost?
These are some of the very questions we ask ourselves when working through the iON architecture. With so many choices, both open-source and commercial,
Most people who write UIs don’t care about testing. You know why? Because it’s hard. So hard, they’d rather not even bother and test things manually. You have multiple browsers. You have multiple platforms. And worse, you have all these frameworks and toolkits which are difficult to test. I’ll pick on GWT here for a moment. It takes 20 seconds to start a test – let alone a server side component to interact with or the time it takes to run your test.
We have been working hard here at MuleSoft! Mule Studio is nearing its General Availability release, and I am pleased to post a new milestone: Mule Studio Beta Milestone 3. In this milestone, we’re emphasising stability and fixing issues, but we also added some features and made some usability improvements.
How do you take your existing investments in Enterprise and SaaS Applications, and turn them into collaboration tools that make businesses more effective? Organizations utilizing CMIS-based content management systems such as Alfresco frequently need to integrate and interact with these systems of record, and increasingly find pushing the content out via new channels to a socially savvy workforce speeds business processes. In this Webinar we will explore how to quickly do the following:
How new customer orders from a CRM system like Salesforce.com can generate events that push Contract and Work Order documents into an Alfresco ECM
How to use the ECM in conjunction with an Enterprise Service Bus to easily push documents out to various devices using email,
Its about time the Web became more event-driven. We have had AJAX for many years enabling events between server and browser, but on the backend we are still polling data. With the explosion of public APIs from SaaS, Social Media and Infrastructure Apps, more and more applications are written by composing web APIs. Developers often need to call a API to get data updates, only to find that nothing has changed. Streaming APIs provide a more elegant solution to polling allowing developers to subscribe to changes they are interested in.
