  • Top 5 reasons why you should consider Groovy and Grails for your enterprise software architecture right now

    I’m so amazed when I see how so few companies are using Groovy and Grails right now, and are still using old stuff like Spring and Hibernate, that I thought I would jump in and do my share of educating.

  • My OSGi Learning Path (Part 1)

    I’m more and more convinced that OSGi is going to change the way we develop enterprise applications. In a sense it’s funny because it’s been around for a while in embedded and client-side environment, and it’s only been reaching to us server-side developers for a few months.

  • Flex, Spring and BlazeDS: the full stack! (Epilogue)

    Thanks to Brian E. Fox, I managed to avoid duplication of Flex remoting configuration files in this project. It requires a bit of additional configuration and I hope that Maven will soon provide a simpler way to do this simple resource inheritance thing. But in the meantime, this one will work. I’m going to update […]

  • Maven, Flex and GraniteDS: another full stack!

    For those of you looking for alternatives, it appears that the main diffuculty I had with Israfil’s maven-flex2-plugin, that is how to specify the contextRoot compiler argument, is not really a difficulty after all. I don’t know if it works with BlazeDS, but the guys behind Igenko apparently made it work with GraniteDS. I have […]

    In this article series, I’ll try to give you a step-by-step process to create an application with Flex/BlazeDS/Spring/Hibernate/MySQL architecture, all of that built with Maven. I’ve been looking for such a tutorial for a long time, but you know what Gandhi said about the change you wish to see in the world, right?
