Yesterday I attended the Battle of the Geeks. It was hosted by Finalist at the Netherlands Architecture Institute in Rotterdam. There were four presentations about different subjects. CMS Container, Google Guice, Gruby on Grails and Mule. A former colleague of mine (Peter Maas) was giving the presentation about Groovy and Grails. At the end of every presentation we had to rate the presentation (1-5 stars). The presentation with the best rating was rewarded with the battle of the geeks award, a plastic viking helmet and a paper with the name of the speaker on it. (more…)
I know it’s kind of wrong to test private methods and there are a lot of articles and books that will explain you why. But sometimes you have an old code base where you have to unit-test some private methods to speed up development time. Today I got such a code base. It’s wasn’t that old, but I needed to change a private method that was called by some other methods. Those other methods had some parameters that needed to be set up depending on the user and the actions that user took in the application.
In this article I will explain how to minify all your .js and .css files automatically with a servlet filter. This means you only have to define a servlet filter in your web.xml and everything works!
A few days ago version 2.0 of the tablesorter plugin was released. Before 2.0 the tablesorter worked fine but I never did anything with it. Today I thought it was time to see whether this was a good solution for the table sorting we need. In this article I will show you how to enable sorting on any table (yes it’s that simple) and how to create custom sort functions.
With JPA, there finally is an ORM standard and every major IDE has support for it. Today I will show you how to map your data with IntelliJ IDEA. I also use the brand new TopLink 11g preview (a JPA implementation), but you can try this at home with every JPA-implementation.
