Best Of The Week – 2011 – W12

Hello guys,

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

* Mastering Spring MVC 3: A presentation of Spring’s MVC3 programming model, detailing with examples: mapping HTTP requests, getting a request input, generating responses, rendering views, data conversion and validation, handling exceptions and testing. You can also check our older Spring MVC Development – Quick Tutorial.

* Android 3.0 Honeycomb SDK: The Good, the Bad and the Missing: With Android 3.0 Honeycomb SDK having been released for some time, this article discusses the good stuff (fragments, loaders etc.), the bad stuff (e.g. emulator performance) and the missing ones.

* 6 Lessons from Dropbox – One Million Files Saved Every 15 minutes: Discussion of how scalability is achieved by a well known application, Dropbox. In short, Python powers the infrastructure, with C driving the critical parts and a custom HTTP notification structure to avoid polling the server.

* Oracle’s Java EE 7 Plans Include Adding Cloud and HTML5 Support to the Platform: In the new JSR for JavaEE 7, emphasis has been put on emerging web technologies, cloud computing, and continued ease of use improvements including an overhaul to the JMS API. Additionally, Java EE 7 platform is going to add first-class support for some of the recent developments in the web space, including HTML5 and Web Sockets.

* Hadoop Compute Cluster: Summary: A very nice, short overview of Hadoop. A summary of Hadoop is provided along with suggestions on when to use, its advantages, the components that make it work and its modes of operation.

* Java EE vs Spring. Or: What is a standard?: An article where the author shares his thoughts about a classic debate, Java EE vs Spring. He claims that based on popularity and industry dominance, Spring is currently considered the “standard”.

* BPM with REST: A discussion about the conceptual relationship between business processes and stateful RESTful services, showing how BPM can be used to design and implement hypermedia-based services.

* 3 Tenets for Implementing a REST API: A nice post discussing how to implement a REST API. Some guidelines are provided regarding API versioning, custom headers and media types and the existence of headers in the response payload.
