TomEE: Upgrading is Easy!

By Apache TomEE, Open Source No Comments

Apache TomEE has been designed from the ground up to be very easy to upgrade. This allows the open source project to innovate quickly and update often without major disruptions to our communities deployments. What follows are some simple tips that will help you upgrade when the time comes. Drag and Drop Jars Keeping a simple structure and remaining true to its Tomcat roots is a guiding principle for Apache TomEE.

TomEE: WebSocket and Lock it!

By Apache TomEE, Arquillian, Jakarta EE, Open Source No Comments

Note: This article was originally authored by Romain Manni-Bucau in May of 2015 and has been updated by Bruno Baptista. Tomitribe uses the WebSocket API to add security credentials to REST services in our support services. This article has been updated to the latest versions of WebSocket and other resources and shows how you can easily add authentication to your REST calls.   WebSockets are a good technical solution when there is a requirement for interactive communication. A typical example is a chat system, but it makes more sense for live updates such as the stock market.  For example, being…

TomEE: Running with Systemd

By Apache TomEE, Community, Open Source No Comments

What is systemd? Systemd is the first background process to run and the last background process to end in the Linux operating system. It has the process id (PID) of 1, meaning that all other background processes (aka daemons) are created by systemd; it is the root background process in a Linux operating system. Systemd is designed to provide a unified configuration process for bootstrapping Linux processes, enable and disable process, and manage the interface between those processes and user applications.  Developers can configure systemd using standard files called units. Units can be used for defining the initialization process for…

Tomitribe at EclipseCon France

By Community, MicroProfile, Open Source No Comments

I had the privilege of being invited to speak at EclipseCon France (June 13th & 14th) about Microprofile, microservices, and JWT.  The conference took place in Toulouse and being from France I have been there a couple of times, but never took the time to enjoy it. The architecture is beautiful, the city clean, and the people nice. Don’t know if it was because it was the beginning of summer or not, but I found the city very active and alive in the evenings. The conference was held at the convention center downtown. The venue is large and well organized. There were…

The REST Security Road Trip

By Community, MicroProfile, Open Source No Comments

My road trip from Coimbra, Portugal to Madrid, Spain, where I spoke to the Madrid JUG about REST security, was beautiful, but full of wrong turns, some potholes, and flash thunderstorms. It reminded me of my adventure in learning and coming to understand REST security. There are so many security specifications that it’s easy to get turned around and to encounter new technical concepts. The “Deconstructing REST Security” talk, originally created by David Blevins, is like a clear roadmap to navigate the potholes and thunderstorms of REST security. It makes navigating the difficulties far simpler, providing both context and a clear route to…

Jakarta EE: Unofficial State of the Union, Part 1

By Blog, Community, Eclipse Foundation, Jakarta EE, Open Source No Comments

There is so much going on with the transition of Java EE from Oracle to the Eclipse Foundation, that it can make your head spin.  Java EE is a huge platform, not only in terms of technology, but also in terms of specifications, governance, and marketing. This “Unofficial” state-of-the-union is an attempt to bring people, not intimately familiar with the work being done, up to speed. Obviously, this is subject to change as the transfer of intellectual property from Oracle to Eclipse Foundation, the establishment of a governance model, and the marketing plan are still being defined. Hopefully, however, this…

Proprietary to Open: A Sea Change for Jakarta EE

By Eclipse Foundation, Jakarta EE, Open Source No Comments

As was discussed in the last post, Jakarta EE: Into the Fourth Epoch, enterprise Java is undergoing the biggest change in the 20-year history of the platform. Although a big part of this is the brand change from Java EE to Jakarta EE as well as a new technical direction (i.e. cloud-native and microservices) the most important change will be the move from a proprietary Java EE to fully open source Jakarta EE platform. The change in custodianship, from Oracle to the Eclipse Foundation, is fundamentally the most important change to the entire platform. To understand why, it’s important to…
