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.

Learning Mongodb

One of the technical fashionable terms is NoSQL. That is not really the reason why I wanted to have a look at it, but still it is a good reason to at least have an understanding of what it is. The best way to do this is to try it out. Together with Allard [...]

My first steps with Gradle: creating a multi module java web project and running it with jetty.

I am a experienced maven user. Sometime I love it, sometimes I hate it. I like it a lot better than ant, but in some situation you would like maven to be easier and more descriptive. The past year there was a lot of fuzz about Gradle. This would give you the best of ant [...]

Spring has support for [...]
