Simplifying OAuth 2.0 and OpenID Connect Implementation with Spring Authorization Server

In the world of modern web development, security is paramount. With the rise of distributed systems and microservices architecture, securing applications and APIs has become increasingly complex. OAuth 2.0 and OpenID Connect (OIDC) have emerged as industry standards for authorization and authentication, respectively. Implementing these protocols has traditionally required considerable effort and expertise. However, with the advent of frameworks like Spring Authorization Server, the process has been streamlined, making building secure, identity-aware applications easier than ever. In this post, we will focus on the minimum required configuration for the application, and rely on the Spring Boot auto-configuration for defaults.

Integration Testing in Spring Boot Application

Most modern applications use databases or some kind of third-party services and we, as developers, are often in situations where we need to integrate with them. Tests that evaluate interactions between different parts of the system are called Integration tests. The idea behind integration tests is to verify that different components of our system are working properly together. In the Spring environment, we have various tools that can help us write integration tests. In this article, we will see code examples that use JUnit, Mockito and MockWebServer.

Appian Records – a solution for unified data, streamlined design and Robust Security

Organizations today face the challenge of developing applications that address specific business needs and user experiences, leveraging data that is distributed across the enterprise. Due to siloed systems and data architectures, organizations often struggle to integrate disparate data sources while ensuring data security. Despite established connections between data sources, queries can be slow and therefore retard performance and cause high maintenance costs. This can mean that even seemingly small changes to the application can take more time to implement, as the impact on performance needs to be considered alongside the logistical restructuring of the application.
