Understanding Callable and Spring DeferredResult

1. Introduction Asynchronous support introduced in Servlet 3.0 offers the possibility to process an HTTP request in another thread.

Learning Spring-Cloud – Writing a microservice

Continuing my Spring-Cloud learning journey, earlier I had covered how to write the infrastructure components of a typical Spring-Cloud and Netflix OSS based micro-services environment – in this specific instance two critical components, Eureka to register and discover services and Spring Cloud Configuration to maintain a centralized repository of configuration for a service.

Spring Batch – Replacing XML Job Configuration With JavaConfig

spring-interview-questions-answers

I recently assisted a client in getting up and running with a Spring Batch implementation. The team had decided to move forward with a JavaConfig-based configuration for their batch jobs instead of the traditional XML-based configuration. As this is becoming a more common approach to configuring Java applications, I felt it was time to update Keyhole’s Spring Batch series to show you how ...

I got a chance to play with Spring-Cloud to create a sample set of cloud ready microservices and I am very impressed by how Spring-Cloud enables different infrastructure components and services to work together nicely.

JavaEE or Spring? Neither! We Call Out For a Fresh Competitor!

spring-interview-questions-answers

If you’ve been following some key Java people on Twitter or reading the “news” on Reddit, you could not have missed the hilarious “bitch fight” (pardon my French) between some Spring and JavaEE evangelists. First, Jürgen Höller’s provocative article: “Happy second birthday, Java EE 7! How is it going in production?” Then, Reza Rahman’s response: “The Ghosts of Java EE ...

RESTful Error Handling with Spring

spring-interview-questions-answers

This post will illustrate a way in which exception handling can be implemented for RESTful web services in Spring in such a manner that the exception handling concerns are separated from the application logic.

Groovier Spring Boot Integration Testing

spring-interview-questions-answers

Recently I had a chance to use Groovy’s groovy.json.JsonSlurper in a soapUI REST project. The usage scenario in soapUI (in particular, soapUI Open Source) was very simple: in a Groovy assertion, load the content of a response into a variable and than verify it like this: import groovy.json.JsonSlurper; def slurper = new JsonSlurper() def result = slurper.parseText(messageExchange.responseContent) assert result.incidentType == ...
