Using Spring Integration In Conjunction With Spring Batch

Mark Fricke JavaScript, Spring, Spring Batch, Technology Snapshot Leave a Comment

Recently I was working on a development project for a client focused on Spring Batch. The program required a pull of the SFTP directory for an encrypted file, decryption of that file, starting of the Spring Batch program, and archive of that file.

Initially, my first thought was to use a shell script to perform all the tasks. Then one of my colleagues suggested Spring Integration; I thought this was great opportunity to learn and get my hands dirty with something new.

In this blog, I will show an example of Spring Integration configuration code, break it apart, and show how each part works.

Spring Integration turned out to be a simple solution to my client’s needs. Using Spring Integration and Spring Batch with Spring Boot, I was able to have a single deployable jar that included everything to run the application. I no longer needed separate deployments for the shell script, and batch process and all code is one Java project.



My Reaction To React

David Pitt JavaScript, React, Technology Snapshot, Tutorial 2 Comments

We at Keyhole have been helping our clients adopt JavaScript-based single-page applications for over five years. We have been impressed with the adoption and advancement of the ever-changing JavaScript ecosystem.

Server side, headless JavaScript (Node.js) has led to good tooling and packaging options along with server side remaining available. Additionally, the new ECMA6 standard has turned JavaScript into a viable general purpose programming language, that is arguably, on the same plane as C# or Java. It certainly has a large number of available frameworks and tooling options.

React differs from the other frameworks I’ve worked with in a handful of ways. In this blog, I will show tangible examples of React’s unique features and capabilities, particularly how it handles HTML-based Components.

Quick Introduction To SQL Server Profiler

Brian Clay .NET, Databases, Technology Snapshot, Tutorial Leave a Comment

When working with SQL Server, you might run across a situation where it is just not running fast enough. While there could be many reasons for this, there are tools that can help you track down just what is going on behind the scenes. SQL Server Management Studio’s SQL Server Profiler or just (Profiler) is a tool that can be used to monitor queries run on your database.

In this blog post I’ll give a brief demonstration of the SQL Server Profiler tool. I’ll show you how to keep an eye on all the queries that are being run against your database, as well as how to use a filter to narrow your search to just slower-running queries…

Migrating to Java 9

Java 9, after many delays and failed votes, looks to be finally arriving this September.

Java 9 will bring several new features: enhancements to Streams, a REPL, improvements to Collections, among others. But by far the biggest and most controversial change is Jigsaw. Jigsaw is introducing modularity to the JDK, a long topic in and of itself, but it is one of the major reasons upgrading to Java 9 will be more difficult than previous major releases of Java.

In this blog we will take a look at some of the benefits of running in a Java 9 environment, how to migrate a Spring Boot application to Java 9, and finally review some of the common problems you may run into and strategies for resolving them…
