My first thought was - "Why on earth someone is developing a new text editor". Having said that I downloaded Sublime, played with it and bought a licence ...
At Willhaben the Microsoft FAST ESP server was replaced with Apache SOLR and this presentation discusses the migration process in order to handle 200+ full-text search requests per second.
This presentation gives you first-hand information how JMeter was used for testing web applications and web services at a data center. At the beginning JMeter and the testing approach is introduced before tackling the hard problems of setting up a scalable performance test infrastructure consisting of JMeter, Ant, Hudson and Git. During the course of the project a new reporting backend for JMeter was developed overcoming the limitations of the current XSLT approach because a SLA (Service Level Agreement) performance report was required based on huge JMeter result files.
Some thoughts and best practices for build managment presented at a OSSBIG meeting.
You just wanted to send an email from within your application and got confused with BodyParts, MimeBodyParts, MimeMultiparts and friends of the Java Mail API?! If yes - have a look at commons-email to see how you can easily create text emails with attachments or HTML emails with embedded images in just a few lines of code
Using a simple "Runtime.exec()" in production code won't cut it and might break your application. Using commons-exec shields you from platform-specific exit codes, blocking error streams, run-away child processes, asynchronous process execution and cross-platform issues.
This presentation gives a short introduction into SQL injection before it documents the vulnerability of a the real-life application.
This presentation describes the testing approach for an object-oriented rich client application based on an agile software development process. The presentation starts with an overview of project and the testing strategy being used. It then goes on to describe the test tools used in the project and the results achieved. The presentation ends with a discussion of the discovered defects, their distribution and improvements for the testing process.
This presentation introduces JSPWiki, a wiki implemented in Java using Java Server Pages (see http://incubator.apache.org/jspwiki/). JSPWiki is currently incubated at the Apache Software Foundation (ASF) and might become an ASF Top Level Project. The presentation starts with an overview of JSPWiki and turns to the problem you have when trying to use a wiki server without internet access. Out of this frustration the idea of a portable wiki running from an USB stick was born - a "Wiki On A Stick" (WOAS). This JSPWiki distribution can be used from an USB stick using different operating systems such as Linux, Windows and Mac OS. The presentation ends with an discussion how to keep multiple wiki instances in sync, e.g. by pushing/pulling changes using git.
This presentation was held at a JUGAT meeting and introduces the "The Invite Friends Mashup" a joint project between Kapsch CarrierCom and IBM.
SOLR is a ready-to-use Enterprise Search Server implemented in Java and based on Apache Lucene. SOLR runs as stand-alone HTTP server or web application using HTTP & XML for remote communication. This makes embedding a fulltext search in your application straightforward and is independent from your favourite programming language.
An introduction to Continuous Integration using CruiseControl. The slides are taken from Joe Schmetzer of Exubero (see www.exubero.com) with a little bit of polishing. Having said that a lot of the polishing was already done by S5, the Simple Standards-Based Slide Show System (see http://meyerweb.com/eric/tools/s5/).
An introduction to JAmon 2.x and how to embed it into various applications, e.g. servlet filters, manual code, dynamic proxies or using a service framework. The examples are created with fulcrum-yaafi-1.0.5 using the JAMonInterceptorService.
An introduction to Canoo WebTest - an ANT based functional web testing tool.
An introduction to setting up a CVS server.
An introduction to XML-RPC and how to interact with Java and TCL.
