Best Of The Week – 2011 – W06

Hello guys,

Time for the “Best Of The Week” links for the week that just passed. Here are some links that drew JavaCodeGeeks‘ attention:

* REST and the Web as a Platform: An interview with Subbu Allamaraju (a Yahoo! architect) who talks about real life RESTful architectures and describes a pragmatic approach of adopting the Web as an integration platform.

* Configuration Enhancements in Spring 3.1: A presentation discussing the configuration enhancements coming in Spring 3.1: unified property management, bean definition profiles, nested elements, c: namespace, Grails BeanBuilder integration.

* JEST: REST on OpenJPA: JEST is an attempt to unify the REST and JPA architectural styles for multitier web applications.

* Doing Big Deployments That Don’t Suck: A nice article providing some insights and tips on how to perform deployments (in no agile environments).

* Ehcache At 2 Billion: Yeap, that is 2 billion entries in the cache. Description of a configuration used to stress test Terracotta’s BigMemory product.

* Tomcat and Servlet 3.0 Web Configuration: Quick quide on how to use the new configuration style introduced in the Servlet 3.0 specification. Old good Tomcat is used as the servlet container.

* Password hashing and salting: Nice introduction on password security and how to handle your user’s passwords in case you have the responsibility to store them.

* Simple RESTful web services with Glassfish: Third link about REST (notice a pattern?). This is a straightforward guide to creating a RESTful web service with Glassfish using JAX-RS.

* Android Series: Download files with Progress Dialog: Tutorial on how to download files in Android displaying at the same time download progress based on the bytes downloaded. Very helpful!
