Handling Persistence Layer with Quarkus

This blog explains how Quarkus simplifies managing the persistence layer in Java applications using ORM (Object Relational Mapping) with its Panache framework. It introduces two patterns: Panache Repository, where a repository interface is defined for each entity, and Panache Active Record, where entities directly extend PanacheEntity for built-in CRUD operations. Code examples and configurations for PostgreSQL and H2 databases in different environments are provided, showcasing how Quarkus streamlines database setup and management.

Streamlining Java Development with Quarkus

In the modern software landscape, with the rise of cloud technologies and the demand for lightweight, scalable applications, traditional Java applications face challenges due to their resource-heavy nature and slow startup times. To address these issues, Quarkus, an open-source project by Red Hat, offers a solution. It aims to make Java development more efficient and responsive by leveraging features like enhanced garbage collection and virtual threads.

React and React Native - a Must-Know Duo for Developers

Nowadays, people use various kinds of devices. Almost everything is digitized, from booking cabs, shopping online, ordering food to online banking. In addition, users want easy access to the same apps and services on different devices, that will have good responsiveness and user experience. Having this in mind, as a developer with the basic knowledge of JavaScript, CSS and React, you can speed up your performance because you will be able to apply different and adequate solutions, depending on the device you want to create your app for. To begin with, let’s go over the main points of these two technologies and why it is useful to understand them.

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.

Harnessing APS Technology for Smooth Application Processing

In simple terms, APS is an abbreviation for Application Processing System. It refers to a sophisticated software solution designed to automate and manage the entire lifecycle of various applications. In other words, it is a software solution that helps organizations automate and guide or manage the application process for various types of applications, and those application requests may be for recruitment, student admissions, insurance, and many others.

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.

Developer vs. AI

The journey from early attempts to simulate human intelligence to the current era of artificial intelligence (AI) represents a fascinating exploration through the history of computing. Key moments in the development of AI date back to the mid-20th century, when pioneers such as Alan Turing laid the foundations for contemplating how computers could replicate human intelligence. Turing's test, introduced in 1950, marked the first step in posing the question: Can a machine think?

Creating an efficient Test Case Repository – part 2

Welcome back to the two-part blog series on building simple and efficient test repository. In the first part, we compared our initial and target Test Case Repository structure, offering insights into the repository hierarchical reorganization and Test Case design/creation changes, and explained how Sprint Test Cases are executed and reported on. The second part will bring into focus organizational procedures needed for maintaining a Test Case Repository by explaining the process of incorporation of Sprint Test Case changes into the Regression Test Suite – in other words, we will talk about Regression Test Suite maintenance.

Differences between roles in Scrum

While working as a Scrum master, I was repeatedly asked or heard questions like: “What are the responsibilities of a developer in Scrum?”, or: “What does the Product Owner do?”, or: ”What do you do as a Scrum master”. So, in this article I will try to demystify these three roles in Scrum. Since there are bound to be some readers of this article who do not yet know Scrum or have never heard of it, we should first talk about what Scrum is and what it is all about.
