Welcome to our blog about all kind of topics that are related to software development. We blog about:

SOA, BPM, EDA, ECM and all the other buzz words. Beware some post might not be so common as you think. We are not scared to go against main stream thoughts.

Technologies like java, maven, springframework, OSGi and front end technologies and frameworks like jQuery, DWR, Flex.

Finally to make this happen we need tools and of course a Mac (well some of us do). So we blog about that as well.


Bring some stability to your architecture

Applications have to run in high-consequence environments. They have to serve hundreds of thousands of users 24 / 7. Our clients spend millions in hard- and software and highly depend on the revenue generated by these applications. Unnecessary outage of these application is fatal.

Software Architects play an important role in setting up an architecture [...]

Rethinking session management

As I mentioned in a previous blog, I’ve been playing around a little with the Click framework in the hopes of having stumbled on a front end framework that is suitable for people like me (who really don’t like the front end). But while I think that Click is quite clever in a number of [...]

One liter of Guice during Spring break

As you all know, I am a regular springframework user. Especially now that I am working for JTeam, all my projects deal with the springframework. At JTeam we are innovators, so we do check out some other frameworks as well. Therefore I am looking at an alternative for Dependency Injection. Since google is doing a [...]

Redesigning libraries completely

I just got done reading Jettro’s post on refactoring your library. And still being in the vacation mood, it reminded me of an idea that surfaces in my so-called brain every now and then: the public library for the twenty-first century.

Much like Jettro I have the habit of accumulating odds and ends of documentation [...]

Time for a new editor (and other vacation musings)….

Sometimes you just get to a point that it’s time for something new. In this case, I’ve found that it’s time for a new blog editor.

For most of my posts so far on GridShore, I’ve been using Zoundry Raven. In case you don’t know it, it’s a WYSIWYG editor used to create blog entries. [...]

Refactoring your library

I have read a lot of books on a lot of different topics to become what I now am. A lot of them I own in a physical way, others in an electronic way. The amount of books tends to grow with the number of years in ICT. What is it about books that I [...]

Using google appengine

When attending the JAOO in Denmark, I was amazed by the easy setup of google application engine. There is a good step by step guide to creating a hello world application. It would be silly to recreate that guide here. Therefore this post takes a different approach. I’ll explain what kind of steps you need [...]

PG-3 for theoretical content and lack of depth

Last week, I have had the pleasure to travel to Denmark with a few colleagues and visit the JAOO conference in Arhus. As with all conference visits, drinks, late nights and early mornings for the first presentation make it a interesting but tiring experience.

Although you spend some time to thoroughly read through the [...]
