Multi-Stage Docker Image Build for Java Apps

May 26 4:01pm DZone Java Zone
A few days back, I discovered a new Docker feature — multi-stage builds. The multi-stage build feature helps you create thin Docker images by making it possible to divide the image building process into multiple stages. Artifacts produced in one stage can be reused by another stage. This is very beneficial for languages like Java as multiple steps are required to build the Docker image. The main advantage of the multi-stage build feature is that it can help you create smaller size images. This feature is not yet available in stable versions of Docker. It will become available in Docker 17.05. To use this feature, you have to use the edge version of Docker CE. To build a Docker image for a Java application, you first need to build the Java project. Java build process needs a JDK and a build tool like Maven, Gradle, or Ant. Once a Java binary artifact is produced, you can package the binary in a Docker image. For running a Java binary, you only need JRE, so you don’t have to pay the cost of bundling the whole JDK.

An Overview of CDI Events

May 25 6:01am DZone Java Zone
Java Enterprise Edition has many features that really stand out. One of the best is the event mechanism, which is part of the Contexts & Dependency Injection for Java specification. Events have been present in Java EE for a long time. The design of the events mechanism is extremely clean, and learning how to use events is therefore very simple. This overview is aimed at developers who are not familiar with the event mechanism and want to get to know the basics. Advanced features of CDI 2.0, like Asynchronous events, are not covered. You will learn to: Fire specific events. Use event qualifier. Observe events fired during transactions. Configure even observer bean instantiation. At the end of this article, you will find instructions for a quick-to-run sample application available on GitHub, demonstrating capabilities of CDI events.

This Week in Spring: Manifest Editing, Boot 2.0M1, and Kotlin

May 25 6:01am DZone Java Zone
Welcome to another installment of This Week in Spring! This week I’m in Amsterdam, NL and Essen, DE, talking to customers about cloud-native transformation. We’ve got a lot to cover so let’s get to it. Spring Tool Suite lead Martin Lippert just announced a preview of Concourse Pipeline and Cloud Foundry manifest editing support releases as a language server. These language servers can be used by any IDE or text editor that supports them, including in this case Microsoft’s Visual Studio Code and later STS itself. Spring Cloud Stream ninja Soby Chako just announced Spring Cloud Stream.SR2 Simon Baslé just announced the Reactor Bismuth release train M1 Stéphane Nicoll just announced Spring Boot 2.0M1! It’s finally here! Get the bits of the first major release towards a reactive Spring Boot 2.0. There’s so much good stuff, including an updated Gradle plugin, relaxed binding improvements, major dependency upgrades and so much more! I think this article by Paweł Chudzik on poor man’s batch solutions — iterating over large datasets — was very interesting. The conclusion is obvious: if you want to scroll through a large number of records then use a java.util.Stream<T> finder query in your Spring Data repository. That’s one obvious conclusion. May I also humbly recommend that you look at Spring Batch and have a rich man’s batch at poor man’s prices? Want easier handling form encoded JSON in Spring MVC? Vote for this issue! I liked this walkthrough on how to implement a forgotten password flow with Spring Boot on the Code by Amir blog by Amir Boroumand. Amir Boroumand also has a nice walkthrough on creating a REST API with Spring Boot Our friends at JDriven are doing what appears to be an awesome (though I think Dutch-language) on MQTT and Spring Cloud Stream and Spring Cloud Data Flow. I liked this fairly approachable look at how to deploy Hashicorp Vault to Cloud Foundry by our very own Toshiaki Maki. Want a bit of insight into what the future of Serverless looks for Spring? Check out the slides to the good Dr. Dave Syer’s presentation on Spring Cloud Function at Spring IO. WeaveWorks’ Scope is now available and supports Cloud Foundry. I liked this rant from Steve Yegge on why Kotlin is a nice language. Interesting reading!...

Notes on Debugging Clojure Code

May 25 3:01am DZone Java Zone
Clojure is a great programming language, but a recurring complaint I keep hearing from developers hacking on Clojure code is that debugging can be unpleasant. First of all, I agree! Debugging Clojure code can be more daunting on average than, say, debugging Python code. This is mainly due to two reasons: Clojure's Java legacy. Clojure is compiled to Java bytecode, which has some terminology and idiosyncracies Clojure programmers aren't always familiar with. These terms tend to pop up in stack traces and cause confusion (e.g. IFN). Clojure — being a Lisp — has a certain code structure which is different from, say, a more common imperative coding style. Rather than being a sequence of statements, Clojure programs tend to involve long call chains of nested expressions. Where only part of an expression fails, it's often non-trivial to figure out why. In this post, I want to share some notes from my own experience debugging Clojure programs.

Kubernetes foundation takes on container networking

May 24 6:00am News & Views

CNI had been a GitHub open source project. It features a specification and libraries to write plugins for configuring networking interfaces in Linux containers.The foundation’s adoption of CNI is meant to increase its focus on network connectivity of containers and the removal of allocated sources when the container is deleted. “The idea [is] that CNI is a standard way of being able to use different networking technologies,” said Dan Kohn, the foundation’s executive director.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here...

How Googles cloud is ushering in a new era of SQL databases

May 22 6:00am News & Views
In 2005 when Google was a $6.1 billion business, the database that underpinned the company’s primary cash cow – it’s AdWords online advertising platform that accounted for more than 95\% of its revenue – was not keeping up with the growth of the company.Typically when a traditional database needs to scale, a process called sharding is used. It breaks data into multiple smaller databases to distribute load. More than a decade ago, the database powering AdWords was getting so large that one reshard took multiple years. A new database was needed. So Google built one.This week Google has made the database it built to handle AdWords available to the general public as a product named Spanner. It comes during the nascent stages of a wave of new databases hitting the market that are similar to traditional, relational SQL databases, but they’re much better at scaling to massive sizes. This new class has been appropriately dubbed NewSQL. And experts who track the database market believe they could one day give the giants of the database world, from Oralce, IBM and Microsoft, a run for their money.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here...

Roach Motel and the Java Memory Model

May 21 12:01am DZone Java Zone
First, let's determine the meaning of roach motel reordering. The roach motel is an approach that lets the compiler move lines of code into synchronized blocks while moving out is disabled. Also, with statements inside a synchronized block, as long as the modification is sequentially consistent, it means that the specific statement is not visible from another place in the code that shares the happens-before relationship with the block. The roach motel in the Java Memory Model is very similar to a trap for roaches — blocks of code can be moved into synchronized blocks, but they can't be moved out.
