  • The Compounding (Business) Value of Composable Ecosystems

    Being “free” and open source doesn’t hinder the value of these projects to businesses and end users; rather it unlocks it. The composability of open source ecosystems allows the innovation and value of the whole ecosystem to compound on itself.

  • Two Must-Have Tools for Jakarta EE Developers

    The wildfly-jar-maven-plugin and the brand new wildfly-datasources-preview-galleon-pack from the WildFly project are worthy of your attention. These tools add on-the-fly generation of an Uber JAR including configuration for containerization and datasources, and make it a pleasure to write applications for Jakarta EE and WildFly.

  • Why Change Intelligence is Necessary to Effectively Troubleshoot Modern Applications

    Change Intelligence is often a missing component in incident management. Successfully correlating monitoring and observability data to arrive allows engineers to arrive at the root cause more rapidly. Telemetry provides the building blocks that enable change intelligence to identify and map the root cause, based on changes in the system and their broader impact.

  • Lightweight External Business Rules

    Complex enterprise applications usually come with varying business logic. Such conditions and subsequent system actions, known as rules, are ever varying and demand involvement of domain specific knowledge more than technology and programming. The rules must reside outside the codebase, authored by people with core domain expertise with minimal tech knowledge.

  • Build a MySQL Spring Boot App Running on WildFly on an Azure VM

    How to build a demo site that runs on the WildFly application platform and connects to a MySQL database in the cloud, on Microsoft Azure. The premise seems simple, but the implementation can be tricky, and there is limited documentation on how to set something like this up.

  • Securing web.config with Encryption Certificates on Windows and Azure

    A major area where security is often lax is the web.config file. Usually stored in plain text, an intruder who gains access to this file can then easily access databases and other resources both internal and external. With this technique, secrets in your web.config can be encrypted using the Windows certificate store

  • Monitoring SRE's Golden Signals

  • Q&A on Express.js with Evan Hahn

    When people talk about Node.js powering the back-end web, they're often actually talking about Express. Just as jQuery and other frameworks smooth over the XmlHttpRequest work in the browser, Express.js works to make the experience on the server just as easy. In this Q&A, author Evan Hahn provides more context on Express and where it's going.

  • Java EE 8 is Kicking Off

    The Java Community Process machinery has started cranking on Java EE again, a little over a year after Java EE 7 was released. The goal is to create the next major version of Java Enterprise Edition. Meet Java EE 8 and JSR 366!

  • Interview with Andy Piper on the Eclipse Paho project and the Internet of Things

    MQTT provides the communications link for low-power systems. InfoQ caught up with Andy Piper, lead of the Eclipse Paho project, to find out more about the history of MQTT and why it is being used by internet scale companies such as Facebook.

  • Practical MQTT with Paho

    MQTT is making the Internet of Things an interoperable and flexible world where the smallest devices can talk to the largest of servers. Obtaining valuable information from anything from a single temperature sensor to an industrial machine can be handled over an MQTT-based platform. What is MQTT and where do we find the libraries to talk with it? This article presents the Eclipse Paho project.

  • Zato - Python-based ESB and Backend Application Server

    Zato is an open-source ESB and application server written in Python. It is designed to integrate systems in SOA and to build backend applications (i.e. API only).
