Dynamic Configuration Management with Netflix Archaius and Apache ZooKeeper, Property-Files, JMX

Wednesday, April 13th, 2016

Though having written about other configuration management libraries for Java before, I would like to demonstrate another one today: Netflix Archaius.

Archaius offers some nice features like dynamic typed properties, thread-safe operations, an event system for property changes/updates, a JMX MBean to read and update properties and adaptors for a variety of dynamic configuration sources like Amazon DynamoDB, JDBC, URLs and Apache ZooKeeper.

In the following tutorial I’d like to demonstrate how to read and update application configuration properties with Archaius and data sources like property-files, system-properties, JMX and Apache ZooKeeper.

Java EE 7 JMX Reports with Yammer Metrics

Tuesday, August 26th, 2014

The Yammer Metrics Library eases this task for us and simplifies the aggregation of different reports.

In the following tutorial, we’re going to set up a full Java EE 7 web application by the help of Maven archetypes and we’re running the application on WildFly application server that is downloaded and configured completely by the WildFly Maven Plugin.

Finally our application is going to use the Java API for JSON Processing to parse lists of public repositories from the Bitbucket REST API to aggregate different reports, exported via JMX so that we’re finally able to view these reports with jconsole or jmeter.
