  • A Detailed Look at The New File API in Java 7

    Java 7 introduced a number of useful features to the language, including a new I/O file package which offers finer grained control over file system functionality, particularly for POSIX based systems. This article will first introduce the new API, and then explore it in more detail using an example of a web-based file manager project, called WebFolder.

  • Rejection of Social Media API by JCP Expert Group Members Sparks Debate On Innovation

    When the JCP rejected JSR 357 (Social Media API) in an 8 to 5 vote, members criticised it for being too broad in scope and not taking sufficient account of security and the mobile space. However, members favouring the proposal indicated this was a political move and impedes innovation.

  • Scala & Spring: Combine the best of both worlds

    Based on a concrete example with Scala, Spring and JPA the article explains how to enhance Spring with Scala’s powerful concepts such as implicit conversions and traits. Moreover, it shows how the gap between a Java based framework and Scala can smoothly be bridged.

  • JSR 292 and the Multi-lingual JVM

    Java 7 is looking to improve support for dynamic languages using the Java Virtual Machine for their runtime environment. John Rose has been leading a project to explore some options, and JSR 292 will standardise some of this work for Java 7. InfoQ takes a look at the problems JSR 292 solves, and talks to JRuby lead Charles Nutter to find out more about InvokeDynamic in practice.

  • BlazeDS and JMS for PHP Developers, Part 2

    In the second and final of our articles on BlazeDS and JMS, InfoQ looks at two additional methods for sending messages to JMS topics or queues from PHP - the PHP/Java Bridge which provides a framework for calling Java classes from PHP scripts using a simple Java façade, and the STOMP protocol.

  • BlazeDS and JMS for PHP Developers, Part 1

    BlazeDS is an open source project from Adobe that allows you to connect your Adobe Flex applications with data services. The Java Messaging Service (JMS) is a method of communicating with services written in Java. In the first of two articles, InfoQ looks at the advantages of JMS and how you can use BlazeDS to communicate with your Java services via JMS from your Flex applications.

  • Modular Java: What Is It?

    Over the last few years, modularity for Java has been an active discussion topic. From the (now defunct) JSR 277 to the recognition of JSR 291 and the ongoing JSR 294, modularity is seen as a necessary step in Java's evolution. Even future JVM-based languages like Scala are considering modularity. So, what does modularity mean, and why should you care?

  • Distributed JBI

    Officially, the JBI (Java Business Integration) standard is limited to a single Java Virtual Machine (JVM) instance. In a new article, Sun's Derek Frankforth describes and contrasts the strengths and weaknesses two different styles of setting up a distributed JBI topology using OpenESB, and shows how they complement each other in the end.

  • Java 7 Module System Concerns

    Java module systems has received a lot of attention lately. One reason for that was the controversy regarding JSR-277 which partially duplicated OSGi. Another was the plans for Java 7. In this article Lukas Krecan gives us a round-up of the current solutions and presents his concern on upcoming solutions like project Project Jigsaw and JSR-294.

  • David Nuescheler on JCR and REST

    In this interview, Day CTO and JCR Spec Lead David Nuescheler discusses the benefits of JCR, the Java Content Repository standard, the difference between an API such as Atom/Atom Publishing protocol and JCR, JCR's connection to REST, and Apache Sling, a new kind of Web framework.

  • Interview: Emmanuel Bernard on the Bean Validation specification

    Following on from a previous article on the early draft of the Bean Validation framework, InfoQ sat down with Emmanuel Bernard to learn more about the proposal and the community involvement the expert group is seeking.

  • Interview: Jérome Louvel about Restlet
