Handlebars – A More Dynamic Way

Dagin Fullmer JavaScript, Single-Page Application, Technology Snapshot, Tutorial Leave a Comment

Handlebars.js is a popular templating engine based on the Mustache template language. In this blog, we will explore how Handlebars is a dynamic template creation tool and what benefits logic-less templates afford us. During our discussion we will cover Handlebars’ precompiling, partials, and helpers, and how each supports or contradicts dynamic and logic-less templates…



Getting Started With JHipster, Part 2

Matt McCandless AngularJS, Java, JavaScript, Microservices, Technology Snapshot Leave a Comment

In part two of this series, we create a microservice architecture using JHipster’s available options for doing so. There is quite a bit more work to do with this approach as compared with the monolithic approach. But, in the end, it pays off. You will see the benefits and flexibility in decoupling our different layers of our architecture. Each layer will not be dependent upon another to run. Let’s get started…



JSON Web Tokens

JSON Web Tokens With Spring Cloud Microservices

Thomas Kendall Java, JavaScript, Microservices, Security 3 Comments

At Keyhole, we have published several blogs about Microservices. We’ve talked about architectural patterns used in a Microservices environment such as service discovery and circuit breaker. We’ve even posted blogs on platforms and tools, such as the recent blog on Service Fabric. One important piece of the architecture that we have glossed over is the security around Microservices. Specifically, authentication …



Golden Service Fabric Hammer

James Bradley .NET, Microservices, Service Fabric, Technology Snapshot, Tutorial Leave a Comment

I had some time before my next project started up, so David Pitt asked me to research and write a blog on Service Fabric. It sounded terrifying. First off, I’m not really what you would call articulate. I finish only half of sentences that I… well, I would hate talking to me. Secondly, I hadn’t yet had as much of a chance …



Implementing A Bounded Context

David Pitt Microservices 4 Comments

Arguably one of the most difficult Microservices patterns to apply and implement is the bounded context. The bounded context concept originated in Domain-Driven Design (DDD) circles. It promotes an object-model-first approach to a service, defining a data model that a service is responsible for and is “bound to.” In other words, the service owns this data and is responsible for …



DeveloperWeek 2016 Retrospective

Zach Gardner Architecture, Business, Community, Consulting, Microservices, Single-Page Application 2 Comments

I recently spoke at the DeveloperWeek 2016 conference in San Francisco, California about JavaScript Debugging Patterns. This conference was an amazing opportunity to see and hear from people in the industry about what they’ve worked on, what they’re working on, and what they see as the future of our field. This blog post is a retrospective of everything I saw …



HATEOAS

Don’t Hate The HATEOAS

Billy Korando Java, Single-Page Application, Technology Snapshot, Tutorial 2 Comments

Or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the HATEOAS REST has become the defacto, or at least vogue, solution to implementing web services. This is understandable because REST offers a level of self-documentation in its utilization of the HTTP specification. It’s durable, scalable, and offers several other desirable characteristics. However many so-called RESTful services don’t implement HATEOAS (Hypermedia …



Microservices à la Service Fabric

Chase Aucoin .NET, Docker, Microservices, Technology Snapshot Leave a Comment

Service Fabric is a massively progressive step for Microsoft. At the core, it is a distributed systems platform used to build scalable and reliable applications. But it gives the benefits of containerizing deployable bits, in addition to having Microservices best practices built-in. In this article, we will see how to quickly get up and running with Service Fabric, as well as why you …



Hystrix To Prevent Hysterix

Dallas Monson Java, Microservices, Spring 2 Comments

Your application just launched into production after 6+ months of development and bug fixes. In true Agile fashion, you and the team released your MVP (minimal viable product). You did your best to simulate load and try to emulate actual user actions so that you can anticipate how your app will behave in the wild. Now, however, you have thousands …
