The title of this article seems unpleasant as it talks about serializing java object graph without the use of Serializable interface. It is true in case of Core Java. We know that to serialize a java bean we have to implement Serializable interface ( let us not consider the Externaliza...
This article provides an outline of java bean validation using javax annotations provided in Java EE 6 and Hibernate validator. As you know modern programming paradigm suggests validating a java bean with annotations. A java bean can be validated in many ways. You can refer to my earl...
“The last time I checked, people do not change their social security numbers very often...” While in constant debate over data encryption and ease of access, I encountered a train of thought that made my jaw drop. A tradeshow attendee suggested encrypting everything, but just use a we...

We so often hear about companies putting "customers first" that the very notion can seem trite. But when it comes to innovation, listening to and learning from your customers is an absolute imperative. At Gazzang, the company I work for, we have a mantra that borders on religious fanat...
It is not uncommon today to click an interesting link you see on Facebook only to be confronted by a "social loginwall". If you aren't familiar with that term it's probably because I just made it up to describe the use of CSS overlays to "hide" the content you want with a second overla...
According to recently conducted research, organizations using ERP software solutions were receiving less than 50 percent of the benefits promised to them prior to implementation. Yet, the main reason for failure in most of these situations was attributed to poor software selection. Her...
Welcome to Enterprise Mobility Asia News Weekly, an online newsletter that consists of the most interesting news and articles related to enterprise mobility in Asia. Asia is predicted to be the fastest area of growth for enterprise mobility between now and 2016. A study conducted by ...
We’re now entering a world where cloud-managed big data is not just a topic of conversation in tech circles but a necessity for companies and service providers alike. Shifting data needs drive technological innovation. The truth is that as data gets bigger, older technology isn’t abl...
It's interesting - and almost amusing - to watch the circle of technology run around best practices with respect to performance over time. Back in the day caching was the ultimate means by which web application performance was improved and there was no lack of solutions and techniques ...
There is a certain amount of overhead associated with each sprint. Every sprint requires some initial planning time plus validation, regression testing and integration time and effort at the end. This overhead is proportional to the total size of the software and the level of automatio...
As the Formula 1 Grand Prix season opened this weekend in Australia, Vodafone announced that it would be ending its sponsorship of the McLaren racing team at the end of the year, leaving McLaren with an annual $75 million hole in its budget for 2014 and onwards. But not for long, it se...
How do you eat an elephant? Simple – cut it into small pieces at eat one piece at a time. BUT… …is it really that simple? When you have a large software project it is too simplistic to assume that all you need to do is to decompose the problem to individual manageable chunk which ca...
There's been a growing focus on scalability as the Internet of Things has continued its rapid growth. Perhaps due in part to large online failures during periodic or individual events, perhaps due in part to simple growth, the reason is less important than the reality that scalability ...
Here is a pretty common use case. You have an existing file server like windows 2003 or windows 2008 in the local office. Everyone in the local office is using a network share from the file server. There are some users from the branch office that may need to access the file server shar...
It is often the case that when you look at things a certain way, they become filtered over time, and you see what you expected to see. This happens to everyone, and while a wonderful adaptation to help handle all of the various inputs in our lives, has caused just about everyone to jum...
The best way to do software development is to get hold of master programmers. Get them to form a self organizing team and do the development in short increments. That is agile. What happens if you cannot find sufficient number of master programmers? Get as many master programmers as...
Have you ever been invited to present a product solution and within a few minutes the audience is thumbing on their mobile devices? Have you ever presented to a remote audience and asked the end "any questions?" and there are none? Here are some tips for giving a great demo. (Credit ...
Do you remember when computers were hard to use? In fact it’s just nine years since a GM press release asserted that if they developed technology like Microsoft, we would all be driving cars that for no reason at all, would crash twice a day, shut down. Because of this great leap forw...
Online advertising is a huge market and prodigious amounts of money are spent by companies to connect with customers. Where can, and do, approaches based on taxonomy plus semantics add value to this dance of moving (emotional and semantic) parts between the intentful consumer poised ...
Yesterday VCE and their proud parents announced revenues had reached an annual run rate of a billion dollars. Today VCE announced some new products along with enhancements to others. Before going forward though, lets take go back for a moment to help set the stage to see where things ...
There is a significant change in how software is developed over the last decade. Agile had been the buzzword over the last decade and probably is most significant of changes in software development to date. Now that the hype around Agile has been subsided, it is worth an effort to unde...
Agile works! If you have any doubt about it just look at the adoption rate … look at the study results published … or just try it yourself. Offshoring also works! Again, if you have any doubt, just look at the growth of offshoring … look at the success of the success of the India ba...
Quick: name some APIs! Which ones come to mind? Amazon? Twitter? Google Maps? Chances are, the APIs which came to mind are APIs which are open to any developer to use. But are these the only kinds of APIs that exist? What about Enterprise APIs? In order to answer this question, let's ...
I have a pretty decent amount of data about Disney World (where to stay, when to visit, how to beat the crowds to Space Mountain, etc…), and in turn, Disney knows a lot about me (my age, where I live, how many times I’ve visited the park, etc…). This information may seem trivial, but ...
When conducting code reviews then you should determine if code reviews are just something you check off your list or have they actually gotten you closer to better quality code? Your motivations and attitudes towards code reviews can greatly affect their effectiveness. When my son sta...
Tоday I was participating in a discussion on one Java forum – the question was if Java is easy or difficult programming language to learn. IMO, Java is not difficult to lear, to teach, and to use. It’s a strongly-typed compiled language with tools that help you out to identify most of ...
When I think about API Analytics, I like to think about the "Goldilocks Question". This question is "Who's been using my APIs?". One of the tests of an API Analytics solution is how easy it makes it to answer this question. Let's look at these two scenarios. I've used a vehicle telema...
About a year ago I wrote BYOD–The Hottest Trend or Just the Hottest Term just when #BYOD was burning up the #trendingtopics. Since then, BYOD has become one of the most talked about IT challenges and at the top of many enterprise initiates for 2013. Most industry pundits and analysts...
The Agile Manifesto happens to be a unique piece of document. I cannot find any equivalent document in whole of software engineering history. Why only software engineering, I cannot think of any equivalent in any field of engineering. Think of how it was developed. In February, 2001, ...
If you are still asking the question should I build a mobile website or create an installable application for mobile… …then you are asking the wrong question! The Mobile Web vs. Mobile App debate is finally over. It is no longer a question of either…or. Making your website mobile fr...
Yes … if you have a co-located cross-functional team … and … there is no pressure or compulsion to shift part of the work offshore. Yes … if you do not feel any necessity or face any difficulty in scaling the team. In all other cases offshore-agile may not be such a bad idea. If you...
If you take the literary meaning of the words off-shore and distributed then it would appear that off-shore is indeed a special case of distributed. But, if go by the de facto understanding then off-shoring is definitely not a special case of distributed software development. Off-shor...
The Java Designer’s general principle to architecting high scale or low scale application is choosing between EJB Centric Design (with EJB) or Web Centric Design (without EJB). OCE EJB Certification covers all design/developer knowledge required to implement Enterprise Java Bean Compo...
*&%#* The system is running slow again! Now what? Is there a space hog application sucking up all my resources? Did we just crash? No, must not say that word...must not say that word... ...still running, just sloooowly. I wonder if anything new has been installed… Nice if they told m...
Before buying more storage space it's a good idea to make sure your existing space isn't filled with redundant or old data - or hundreds of downloaded cat videos. Disk capacity is increasing and while prices continue to drop, those savings are offset by demands for new capacity to sto...
Reactionary defenses cost an unreal amount of money for consumers, businesses, governments (both state and local), federal and military. You would think with all of this time and money spent on the various products billed as “protecting” you from cyber threats & intrusions, your enviro...
Am I the only person who thinks that we need a clear, well understood and unambiguous determine if the development process that you are following can be classified as Agile development process? Do you necessarily have to have a small, co-located, cross-functional team to be able to cl...
The godfather of Viewpoint in the new era of cloud computing is clearly Salesforce.com. As I have written here, SalesForce.com's "The End of Software" created a unique and compelling Viewpoint that aligned with the aspiration and frustrations of their target customers who needed fas...
