The Secret Sauce: How to Connect Your Raspberry Pi to a Hidden SSID

When I got my first Raspberry Pi Model B (not long after they first became available – remember when they only had 256M?!?), I wanted to configure it to use a wifi adapter. Even with approved, compliant adapters, this wasn’t for the faint of heart; many steps, scripts, and secret incantations were required to get everything to connect, even in the best of circumstances. Fast-forward to today, when wifi adapter drivers are included in the base Raspbian build. ...

Microservices: The View from 1000 Feet (or 305 Meters If You Prefer)

Intro I started this post a couple months ago, and between a busy holiday season and constant revisions, I’m only now polishing and posting it. For those who knew it was in the pipeline, thank you for your patience. 🙂 I have another article in the works that will delve into more technical aspects of the microservices discussion; hopefully I’ll get that posted by this time next year (!). In this one, though, I’d like to stay as much as possible at the conceptual level, dipping into the details only to reference them for consideration and future discussion. ...

Secure Email From Java

Cross-posted from The Java Jungle by Mark Heckler I’ve been working recently with a client to do some rather useful things with notifications, and one of them involved sending a secure email from within a Java program. We encountered some interesting (translation: weird!) challenges, and in overcoming them, I worked out a reasonably straightforward path through the minefield. If you’ve been thinking about secure-email-enabling your Java app but aren’t sure where to start, hopefully this will serve as a fairly quick and mostly painless primer. ...

Netbeans Jsf Mysql Primary Key

Cross-posted from The Java Jungle by Mark Heckler I recently had the opportunity to spin up a small web application using JSF and MySQL. Having developed JSF apps with Oracle Database back-ends before and possessing some small familiarity with MySQL (sans JSF), I thought this would be a cakewalk. Things did go pretty smoothly…but there was one little “gotcha” that took more time than the few seconds it really warranted. ...
