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!

That’s all for this week. Stay tuned for more, here at JavaCodeGeeks.
