With the fond memories from our participation in OpenSlava 2016 conference (Bratislava, Slovak Republic) still fresh in my mind, I wanted to share with you the slides and video recording for my session on “Lightweight Java Architectures”.
Besides that session, I also conducted a hands-on workshop on ADOP, The DevOps Platform (https://accenture.github.io/adop-docker-compose/) along with José María Gutiérrez, one of my teammates. Memorable time with the workshop participants. I wish we helped to spread the interest in ADOP and hopefully a few more ‘hackers’ willing to use it, improve it and extend it.
Our time in Bratislava was unforgettable. I am deeply grateful for having participated in such a great event, extremely well organized and hosted by some of the most talented people I’ve met (and have the great luck of working with them). You all rock!
Furthermore, I can only say thank you very, very much to all the people that voted this session as the best one of the conference. I feel honoured by your recognition and hope to meet you again soon.

Finally, I would like to encourage you all to watch the video recordings for the whole conference which are available, organised by conference track, in the OpenSlava YouTube channel here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCiHa442MD4GjCnthMEPT2dg/feed
Amazing panel of speakers and unparalleled selection of topics. Enjoy!
Note: this is an excerpt extracted from my talk at Red Hat Developer Day London. You can see more about the talk in my post here:
Sonar is a popular code profiler and dashboard that excels when used along a Continuous Integration engine:
- Seamless integration with Maven.
- Leverages best-of-breed tools as Checkstyle, PMD or FindBugs.
- Configurable quality profiles.
- Re-execution of tests and test code coverage (UT, IT).
- Design Structure Matrix analysis.
- Flexible and highly customisable dashboard.
- Actions plans / peer reviews.
- Historic views / run charts.
- Can be used with Java, .Net, C/C++, Groovy, PHP,…

On Nov 1st, I will be presenting in Red Hat Developer Day London.
The tittle of my talk is: “The Usual Suspects – Creating a Cloud Development Environment with Sonar, Selenium and JMeter on OpenShift Origin“. During the session I will show how to extend the basic development environment offered by OpenShift (Git, Maven, Jenkins) and create a more powerful environment on OpenShift featuring “usual suspects” such as Sonar for continuous quality assurance, Selenium for functional testing, JMeter for performance/load testing as well as Arquillian for in-container testing. The session includes a live demo built on OpenShift Origin.

See you there!

In previous months I’ve been playing with various cloud platforms, learning the basics, what’s different and what not, between them and comparing with more ‘traditional’ developments.
When I start to work in a new framework or tool, I tend to use the same set of reference applications to start. Simple stuff for a simple start. With that I pretend to concentrate in the specifics of the f/t at hand, without dealing at the same time with whatever idea I had and was building.
The first app, as you can see in previous posts, is the simplest of Spring+Hibernate use cases, CRUD on a simple, two-field entity. This one is good to start but too simple to be really representative o an actual development.
For the second iteration I work with Spring Pet Clinic reference application: an exemplar use of Spring Framework created by Spring team a few years ago. To my surprise, Pet Clinic didn’t work out of the box with the latest Tomcat release, and while looking at what was happening I found out a few things worth sharing about the greatest and latest Spring and Tomcat.
In this post I will walkthrough my findings with Pet Clinic and what enhancements I did to make it ready for 2012 and beyond.

Since my previous posts about Java cloud platforms I wanted to expend some time with Heroku and compare with the others.
Heroku is a veteran among the cloud platforms, but it’s not until a few months ago that they launched a Java offering.
In this post I will share my experiences starting with Heroku and making an existing application to work on it.

Micro Cloud Foundry is a complete Cloud Foundry installation shipped in a ready to use Virtual Machine.
With Micro Cloud Foundry you can work locally in your applications and test how they work integratedly with Cloud Foundry services.
Using Micro Cloud Foundry during development is highly recommended for any serious work. It is not practical to have multiple people working on the same application and constantly deploying to the same public or private Cloud Foundry instance (e.g. hosted in Amazon EC2 or hosted in a VMware vSphere environment). Instead, developers would use local Micro Cloud Foundry instances for build and test and then a dedicated Micro Cloud Foundry or Cloud Foundry instance for integration testing.
In this post I will show how to get, configure and start to work with Micro Cloud Foundry.

After we finished writing the post on VMware Cloud Foundry platform, it seemed natural to write a follow-up on Red Hat OpenShift. OpenShift is a Java-based Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) offering from Red Hat, the ‘giant’ of Open Source Software with a well-deserved reputation that comes from a wide range of products including operating systems (Fedora, Red Hat Enterprise Linux), application servers / middleware (JBoss AS, JBoss ESB), frameworks (Hibernate, Seam) and tools (JBoss Tools, Arquillian).
As a PaaS offering, the ultimate goal of OpenShift is to reduce the effort needed to write and deploy highly scalable and highly available Java applications. Under your dedicated “application space” the platform components run to ensure your application is able to respond to user’s requests, but isolating your application code from the infrastructure and all the complexity usually associated with complex, distributed deployments.
Let’s jump into OpenShift!
