I start WildFly listening on a specific IP using this commands:             $> cd /opt/wildfly/wildfly-8.0.0.Beta1/bin $> ./ -c standalone-full.xml -b= -bmanagement= ...

Sublime Simplicity of Scripting with Groovy


Many of my blog posts are, as my blog’s title suggests, inspired by actual events. Three experiences this week have reminded me yet again of the simple simplicity of scripting with Groovy. In this post, I briefly look at each of these three events that are only related because they tie to Groovy and to scripting with Groovy. Groovy Provides ...

Spring’s @Primary annotation in action


Spring is a framework that never stops to amaze me. It’s because of the fact that it offers plenty of different solutions that allow us, developers, to complete our tasks without writing millions of lines of code.

Node.js Synchronous and Asynchronous Functions


In node.js platform, as the non-blocking programming model is followed as practice, all most all of the functions in the node.js modules are primarily asynchronous in nature.

Still we have synchronous ...

Stop Telling Stories


There are beautiful, simple ideas in today’s Agile development methods that work really well. And some that don’t. Like defining all of your requirements as User Stories. I don’t like the name. Stories are what you tell children before putting them to bed, not valuable information that you use to build complex systems. I don’t like the format that most ...

On three-legged elephants


I’ve often argued that good design—of a language, library, or framework—isn’t about packing in as many features as possible into your solution, rather it’s about discovering a small set of interlocking features that act to reinforce each other. That is to say, we want to maximize the power/expressiveness of our solution, while simultaneously minimizing the surface area. I am, furthermore, ...
