Kohsuke Kawaguchi, creator of Jenkins and architect at CloudBees, discusses how to use Jenkins to efficiently shift more workload from your laptops and computers to servers. By using “pre-tested commits” you can make changes safely so that your changes don’t block others, run tests asynchronously, and avoid compounding errors intrinsic to large projects with numerous developers contributing to the repository. Advances in distributed version control systems (such as Git) made it possible to test every commit separately before it hits the team’s main branch. This helps you keep the main branch more stable, and lets you get more values out of the CI server. In this session, Kohsuke look at the details of this technique, and how to make it work with your projects. It covers
Rich Hickey, author of Clojure, and designer of Datomic presents a new way to look at database architectures in this talk from JaxConf 2012. What happens when you deconstruct the traditional monolithic database – separating transaction processing, storage and query into independent cooperating services? Coupled with a data model based around atomic facts and awareness of time, you get a significantly different set of capabilities and tradeoffs. This talk with discuss how these ideas play out in the design and architecture of Datomic, a new database for the JVM. Filming: Marakana Tech TV
In this talk at JAXconf 2012, Lincoln Baxter III, Senior Software Engineer at the legendary Red Hat, talks about URL shortening and re-writing and how it can affect the productivity, usability, and security of your applications. Java EE is already the perfect solution for complex business/enterprise systems and provides all the tools and foundations required to deliver scalable, performant applications for a wide variety of customers and clients. But how does the end user experience stack up? How easy is it to navigate through your Website? Is your code full of nasty navigation logic? Are your links clear, transparent, and informative? Do you find yourself adding ‘?query=parameters’ in order to serve dynamic content from your application? Can you ensure that you are no
