While the availability of numerous excellent open technologies has enabled us to build products and services faster than ever, there remain problem areas where technologies have yet to fully impact. One of the most challenging areas involves building consistent, fault-tolerant distributed systems.
In this article, Martin Kühl, senior consultant at innoQ, reveals that he occasionally enjoys writing custom command line tools and begins the tutorial with Swift.
Yet another language? That is a good question to ask, especially when the Java Virtual Machine (JVM) is host to many languages with proven adoption.

In this article, Orlando L. Otero, Sr. Application Engineer at Oracle, explains how to implement integration testing using Spring Boot, Postgres and Docker to pull Docker images, start container(s), run the DAOs-related tests using one or multiple Docker containers and dispose them once the tests are completed.
Radically different, but nonetheless easy — that is the dichotomy the new open source microservice framework Lagom is trying to create. What are the features that differentiate it from other frameworks? How easy is it to handle? What does the name actually mean?
In this article, we shortly summarize the common characteristics of Microservices, talk about the main challenges of building Microservices, and describe how product teams can leverage AWS to overcome those challenges.
Let’s be honest: Deep into the heart of every developer there’s a craving to create a game. You can now learn to do it in JavaFX with the help of the new FX gaming library (FXGL). In this tutorial Almas Baimagambetov is going to create a very basic game.
This tutorial should help you create a Spring Boot microservice that is executed and deployed in a Docker container which can be configured and managed in the same place where we handle the Spring Boot application.
In this article Dreamix Java software developer Boris Velichkov teaches us how to implement Immutable Generic Classes. It isn’t so difficult to make a class Immutable or Generic in Java. But what if you try to make the class both Immutable and Generic at the same time? Is it easy and possible?
Since Angular 2 has reached beta phase and the stability of its API should now be guaranteed, it is time to take a closer look at the framework. Thanks to a plug-in, it is now possible to use TypeScript in the NetBeans IDE.
Every point about Thread discussed in this piece is meant to make readers understand the concept of Thread and its uses, together with its advantages and disadvantages.
Microservices are great – we can all agree. But there’s no doubting what level of complexity they bring to IT systems. “The problem is, we don’t understand the problem,” quotes software architect Peter Elger, who shows us the ways to fail fast and iterate rapidly with microservices.
If you’re developing with Microsoft’s WPF, then you’re likely aware of Xceed and the confusing “BusyIndicator” control – but have you managed to find a tutorial explaining its implementation? Try this one on for size from regular blogger Steve Naidamast.
