Handling Feature Flags in a Java EE Application using Togglz

Wednesday, June 26th, 2013

Feature flags are a common technique, often combined with continuous deployment and delivery and they allow us to rollback a specific feature, to create A/B tests or to rollout a specific feature for a specific test group, a specific amount of users or dedicated systems.

In the following short examples I’d like you to demonstrate how easy it is to implement feature flags with the Togglz framework with a few steps in a Java EE environment.

Arquillian Tutorial: Writing Java EE 6 Integration Tests and more..

Thursday, April 26th, 2012

Now that the long awaited stable version of the Arquillian framework is released I wanted to demonstrate some interesting features of  this framework that really eases writing and running of integration tests for Java EE 6 applications in many different ways.

In the following tutorial we are going to create some real-world examples using Enterprise JavaBeans, Contexts and Dependency Injection, the Java Persistence API and we’re finally running Drone/Selenium tests against a JEE Web Application that is using Java Server Faces.

Create Mobile Websites using Java Server Faces and PrimeFaces Mobile

Sunday, January 8th, 2012

The more smartphones and tablets are sold the bigger the need for a mobile version of a modern website. PrimeFaces Mobile helps us developers here  and allows us to quickly create mobile websites that display well on an iPhone, Android, Palm, Blackberry, Windows Mobile and others.

In the following tutorial we’re going to create a web application that is using Java Server Faces 2.1, PrimeFaces 3.1 and PrimeFaces Mobile 1.0 and runs on a simple web container like Tomcat or Jetty.

Creating Portlets using Java Server Faces 2 and Liferay

Tuesday, July 19th, 2011

Portlets are a common technology to create plug&play components for modern web applications and are specified by the Java Community Process in several specification requests.

In the following tutorial we’re going to learn how to create custom portlets and how to deploy and embed them in Liferay, the popular open-source enterprise portal.

In addition we’re taking a look at inter-portlet-communication and how to create portlets using annotations.

Finally we’re building a portlet-state-aware Java-Server-Faces portlet using the  jsf-portlet-bridge mechanism.

Creating a sample Java EE 6 Blog Application with JPA, EJB, CDI, JSF and Primefaces on GlassFish

Tuesday, February 8th, 2011

Java EE 6 is out and it indeed offers an interesting stack of technologies. So in today’s tutorial we are going to build a small sample web application that builds on this stack using Enterprise JavaBeans, Java Persistence API, Bean Validation, CDI and finally Java Server Faces and PrimeFaces.

The application we’re going to develop is a simple blog app that allows us to create new articles, list them and – finally delete them. We’re also covering some additional topics like JSF navigation, i18n, Ajax-enabled components and the deployment on the GlassFish application server.

Using PrimeFaces to pimp up existing Java Server Faces / JSF 2 Applications

Sunday, November 14th, 2010

In this tutorial we’re going to modify an existing Java Server Faces / JSF 2 web application by adding rich UI components to the existing layout.

Our tool of choice here is the PrimeFaces framework. It offers a wide range of interesting, customizable and (several) Ajax-enabled components that blend very well with JSF1+2  and also a solid documentation that allows a quick integration into existing projects.

Java Server Faces/JSF 2 Tutorial – Step 1: Project setup, Maven and the first Facelet

Saturday, June 5th, 2010

In this short tutorial we are going to build a Java Server Faces Web-Application using JSF2.0, Facelets, Maven and Hibernate as ORM Mapper.

The goals for this first step are: Setting up the project structure using Maven, defining a frame template/decorator and a registration facelet, creating a managed bean and mapping it’s values to the facelet, adding some basic validation, displaying validation errors and finally adding a navigation structure.

In step2 of this tutorial we are going to add persistence using Hibernate, add some security, create a custom UI component and add some AJAX.

The Mojarra JSF implementation is used for this tutorial – perhaps I’m going to post more about the MyFaces implementation in another tutorial.
