T4SD (Tips 4 Spring Devs): Exposing Query Methods in Spring Data REST

Spring Data REST takes an opinionated approach to exposing Spring Data repositories via REST endpoints, covering the 80-90% use case with a minimum of code and fuss. But did you know that it provides a no-lifting-required mechanism for exposing query methods you define on those repositories as well? Let’s say you create a method like this: Referencing that bit of functionality directly is simple, just append /search/<methodName> to the collection endpoint: ...

Random Route in Cloud Foundry

I’ve only been working with Pivotal Cloud Foundry since September 2015, but I’ve learned a great deal about it since then. I also realize there is much (much much) more to learn!

Nighthacking Interview: Jfokus

At Jfokus this week, I was honored to be interviewed by Stephen Chin of Nighthacking.com. We discussed the Renewable Energy system I built and developed using industrial Internet of Things (IoT) concepts and Domain Driven Design principles. The core of the system is Java SE Embedded on the IoT Gateway device, Spring Boot + Cloud Foundry (CF) for the backend services, and an HTML5/JavaScript frontend application also delivered via CF…all accessible from any device, anywhere in the world. ...

Spring Boot for IoT Developers: Getting Started

It often surprises other devs when I suggest that Spring Boot is a perfect addition to the IoT developer’s toolbox. If you’re deep into IoT and have the luxury of another group providing all of your back-end and/or cloud platform code, that’s perfectly understandable. However, if you’re a full-stack developer, by choice or necessity, you need to know this! Grab a chair and a cup of coffee; I think you’ll find this interesting (and useful). ...
