  • Virtual Foojay OpenJDK 17+ JUG Tour

    To celebrate OpenJDK 17 and Foojay.io as a community platform for its users, we’re kicking off the Virtual Foojay OpenJDK 17+ JUG Tour.

    Ari Waller, JFrog’s Event Manager, well known to many JUGs, will continue to wear a second hat—that of Foojay Event Manager.

    During September and October, contributors to Foojay will be making a whistle stop tour through as many JUGs as possible, via their virtual meetups! (And if you’re not holding virtual events or don’t have the facilities for this, we can support by making these available as needed.)

  • Introduction to New AutoScale Feature Available in Payara Server

    When AutoScale is fully developed, not only will it allow you to change the number of instances in the Deployment Group by implementing additional asadmin commands, but it will also signal the routing systems of the changed configuration and automatically trigger a change in size based on rules around resource usage.

    In this first step of the AutoScale development, we have introduced the concept of the Scaling Group into Payara Server Community Edition 5.2021.4 which can alter the number of instances in a Deployment group and implement it for SSH nodes.

    The AutoScale feature is in continuous development, with improvements and additional functionality (including addressing the routing issue) planned in our future releases.

  • Getting Started with Jakarta EE 9: Context And Dependency Injection (CDI)

    In this article of the Getting Started with Jakarta EE series, we look at various specifications and how you can use them in your next application.

    We explain a few features of Context and Dependency Injection (CDI). The CDI specification is an important backbone of Jakarta EE as it brings several specifications together. Over the years, it became more and more important as an increasing number of specifications started using CDI as the basis for it.

    In this article, we will also tell you a bit about the different scopes, the interceptor mechanism, and the Event system.

  • Getting Started with Jakarta EE 9: How to Create a REST API with Jakarta EE 9

    In this second article of the Getting Started with Jakarta EE 9 series, we show you some basic scenarios using the REST specification.

    Although most people are using the term REST or RESTful API just to indicate they do data transfer over HTTP, and  ignore the “Hypermedia as the engine of application State (HATEOS)” part of REST. The technology is used a lot lately to connect the front-end with the back-end.

    For those who are not familiar with Jakarta EE, this article should give you an indication how to create such a REST API with Jakarta EE 9.

  • Getting Started with Jakarta EE 9: Hello World

    The release of Jakarta EE 9, at the end of 2020, was in many ways a historic event. The Java Enterprise framework is already 20 years old, having its first release in 1999. It has changed names a few times but the main concepts of the first release can still be found in this new release. During all those years, it has adapted itself to keep it up to date but has always adhered to its main principle of stability and backward compatibility.

    Regarding backward compatibility, this release was also historic as the namespaces changed (like package names that changed from ‘javax’ to ‘jakarta’). The change is straightforward, no other changes are introduced between Jakarta EE 8 and EE 9.  This to make the migration as easy as possible.

  • How to Use Eclipse Transformer to Convert a 3rd Party Library to the New Jakarta Namespace

    The release of Jakarta EE 9 breaks a tradition of Java Enterprise. A legal requirement of the Java EE code donation from Oracle to the Eclipse Foundation is the change of the namespace of javax to jakarta.

    But the change of the package and XML namespace in Jakarta EE 9 is only the beginning. The change of the namespace allows for new development and functionality, but all frameworks and libraries using one of the Java Enterprise specifications also need to be adjusted to the new version.

  • MicroProfile OpenTracing with Jaeger

    The MicroProfile OpenTracing specification defines behaviours and an API for accessing an OpenTracing compliant Tracer object within your JAX-RS application. The behaviours specify how incoming and outgoing requests will have OpenTracing Spans automatically created. The API defines how to explicitly disable or enable tracing for given endpoints.

    Jaeger, inspired by Dapper and OpenZipkin, is a distributed tracing system released as open source by Uber Technologies. It is used for monitoring and troubleshooting microservices-based distributed systems.
