Open APIs are the new open source
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

We’ve seen the rise of open source software in the enterprise and also beyond the IT industry, but the real keys to openness and its advantages in today’s technology world — where efficient use of cloud computing and supporting services are paramount — exist in open application programming interfaces, or APIs.

Open source software continues to be a critical part of software development, systems administration, IT operations and more, but much of the action in leveraging modern cloud computing and services-based infrastructures centers on APIs. Open APIs are the new open source.

Java Generics in Oracle
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Somebody posed the question about using a Comparator in the sorting examples provided in this earlier post on Updating Table View Columns (columns using a Varray or Nested Table of a single scalar data type). It seems the individual thought that you can’t use Java Generics inside an Oracle Database 11g’s Java libraries. It’s seems odd since they’ve been around since Java 5.

You can use Generics like those shown in the following example. It builds on explanation from the prior post. If you want to get the whole set …

Continuing the review of MySQL Connector/J’s built-in extension points from my recent JavaOne and Silicon Valley Code Camp presentations, this blog posting will focus on the StatementInterceptor extension point.  As the name suggests, this allows you to hook into statement execution and alter behavior – without changing application-side code.  This corresponds to slide #59 in my …

Creating JDBC Connections Doesn't Have To Be Slow (or "not the reason to be using a pool")
Employee +4 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Hanging out in #mysql on freenode the other day, I overheard someone saying that the reason to use connection pools with MySQL is because JDBC connections are expensive to create. That is true out of the box, but mostly because the out of the box behavior of MySQL's JDBC driver is to be standards-compliant. If you know that your DBA and your developers aren't doing crazy things with the database (changing configurations without letting the developers know, going around the "standard" API calls to start/end transactions, etc), then you can get to the point where connection setup is no slower than any other API. Does this mean you shouldn't use a connection …

On Password Strength
+6 Vote Up -0Vote Down

XKCD (as usual) makes a very good point – this time about password strength, and I reckon it’s something app developers need to consider urgently. Geeks can debate the exact amount of entropy, but that’s not really the issue: insisting on mixed upper/lower and/or non-alpha and/or numerical components to a user password does not really improve security, and definitely makes life more difficult for users.

So basically, the functions that do a “is this a strong password” should seriously reconsider their approach, particularly if they’re used to have the app decide whether to accept the password as “good enough” …

MariaDB now available as a hosted database via Jelastic cloud platform
+5 Vote Up -0Vote Down

About Jelastic:

Jelastic is the next generation of Java Platforms as a Service.

Unlike previous cloud platforms, Jelastic:

  • Can run any Java application and so does not require developers to change their code or get locked-into the platform,
  • Can scale any application up and down by automatically adding or removing memory and CPU units depending on the application load,
  • Takes all configuration and management worries away: developers simply specify the application stack and database options they need and Jelastic creates, configures, and maintains the environment for them …
