  • Why DevOps Governance is Crucial to Enable Developer Velocity

    The application environment should be managed centrally by the DevOps team. This allows them to better track modifications and changes which would then be swift and transparent to developer teams.

  • Article Series: Native Compilation Boosts Java

    Java dominates enterprise applications. But in the cloud, Java is more expensive than some competitors. Native compilation makes Java in the cloud cheaper. It raises many questions for all Java users: How does native Java change development? When should we switch to native Java? When should we not? And what framework should we use for native Java? This series provides answers to these questions.

  • Cloud Native Java with the Micronaut Framework

    The Micronaut framework provides a solid foundation for building Cloud Native Java microservices. It reduces the use of Java reflection, runtime proxy generation, and dynamic classloading. Tight integration with GraalVM Ahead-of-Time Compilation (AOT) has seen the usage of the Micronaut framework grow.  Active compilation-time checking increases type safety and improves developer productivity.

  • Article Series: Building Microservices in Java

    This article series will explore the state-of-the-art in building microservice-based architectures using the Java language. Alongside popular stalwarts, such as Spring Boot and Dropwizard, newer frameworks, such as Quarkus, Micronaut and Helidon, have been gaining momentum. These frameworks emerged after MicroProfile was introduced to the Java community in 2016.

  • Testing Quarkus Web Applications: Writing Clean Component Tests

    In this article, we will learn how to write clean integration tests for Quarkus applications. We will see how we can write simple and clean tests for the following scenarios: a mail client, security with RBAC, testing using containers, and rest clients.

  • Virtual Panel: the MicroProfile Influence on Microservices Frameworks

    In mid-2016, the MicroProfile initiative was created as a collaboration of vendors to deliver microservices for enterprise Java. InfoQ recently asked the opinion of expert practitioners on how MicroProfile has influenced how developers today are building microservices-based applications, the emergence of new microservices frameworks and reverting back to monolith-based applications development.

  • Velocity and Better Metrics: Q&A with Doc Norton

    Velocity is not good for predictions or diagnostics, argued Doc Norton at Experience Agile 2019. It's a lagging indicator of a complex system which is too volatile to know what our future performance will be; it isn’t stable enough to be used reliably. We can use Monte Carlo simulation for forecasting, and cumulative flow diagrams to track work, see changes in scope, and spot bottlenecks.

  • Q&A and Book Review of Software Development Metrics

    The book Software Development Metrics by Dave Nicolette explores how to use metrics to track and guide software development. It explains how different development approaches and process models, like traditional waterfall-based or iterative agile software development, affect the choice and usage of metrics. It describes metrics that can be used for steering work and for managing improvement.

  • Interview and Book Review: BDD In Action

    "BDD In Action" is a book that aims to cover the full spectrum of BDD practices from requirements through to the development of production code backed by executable specifications and automated tests.

  • Introduction to Interface-Driven Development Using Swagger and Scalatra

    Since it began life a little over three years ago, the Scalatra web micro-framework has evolved into a lightweight but full-featured MVC framework with a lively community behind it. Scalatra started out as a port of Ruby's Sinatra to the Scala language. Since then the two systems have evolved independently, with Scalatra gaining capabilities such as an Atmosphere integration and Akka support.

  • Grails Best Practices

    Basic best practices for Grails projects gathered from mailing list, Stack Overflow, blogs, podcasts and internal discussions at IntelliGrape, categorized under controller, service, domain, views...

  • Guardian.co.uk Switching from Java to Scala

    Citing a need to be able to respond faster to events, and disappointment in the feature set and timeframe for Java 7, the team behind guardian.co.uk is using Scala as an alternative to Java for their new projects. InfoQ spoke to Web Platform Development Team Lead Graham Tackley about their current stack, the reasons behind the move, and the experience of using Scala in large-scale development.
