  • JavaMug Spring Boot Discussion

    I attended JavaMug last Wednesday as the speaker was Craig Walls author of Spring Boot in Action. When I heard about the book I had planned on purchasing it, but was disappointed there was no kindle version on Amazon. It does state if you purchase the print edition they will give you the kindle one […]

  • Field injection is not evil

    I am a big fan of the work Oliver Gierke has done in Spring Data. It is a framework I use daily at work and it really is amazing. A while back Greg Turnquist had posted something on Twitter against field injection. So I asked what was wrong with field injection and he pointed me […]

  • Cassandra Days in Dallas 2015

    I may have mentioned this before, but I love going to software conferences. When I got the email mentioning that Cassandra Days was coming to Dallas with a free 1 day conference on all things Cassandra, I signed up immediately. The event was sponsored by Datastax who sells a commercial version of Cassandra called Datastax […]

  • Kegs & code

    I attended the kegs & code last night. It was a code challenge and party with cash prizes that was hosted by Saltt Ventures. I had never attended a code challenge or hack-a-thon or anything like that, but I figured it is good to get out of your comfort zone every now and then and […]

  • AspectJ Maven Plugin update

    I am happy to report that after much delay the Mojohaus team has finally fixed the Aspectj Maven plugin to allow disabling the annotation processing by the aspectj compiler. It will be fixed in version 1.8 of the plugin. You may recall that back in April I was forced to fork the project to fix […]

  • Java 8 lambdas and streams

    I just finished up the Java 8 lambda’s and streams class. I finished a little later than I wanted to because I decided to upgrade to Windows 10 last week which was an epic failure. I used the media download tool to upgrade prior to my machine coming up in the queue and all the […]

  • I’m back

    After a month long hiatus I have returned. I have been traveling for most of the last month so the blog sort of fell to the side. Now that I am done with my summer travel I hope to be back to the weekly posting schedule. That being said I don’t have a lot of […]

  • Clover and Wikitree

    Good news this week. Our purchase of Clover was approved and we will have our license keys in a matter of days. As of tomorrow it is going into our build and Cobertura is getting ripped out. You may recall I previously wrote about my issues with Cobertura. One problem was the latest version at […]

  • JHipster

    I was reading the Spring Blog the other day and I came across this story. I was intrigued because I found the name funny so I read the post and watched the embedded youtube video and was completely blown away. Take all the excitement I had for Spring Boot after SpringOne and multiply it by […]

  • Getting crushed by SonarQube

    I have been upgrading our Sonar server from 4.5 to 4.5.2 and restructuring our project. I initially was planning on upgrading to SonarQube 5.0, but the upgrade process can’t seem to handle our database. After I upgraded to 4.5.2, I was restructuring. Initially we had each of our libraries setup as a separate project at […]
