PopStack - copy-pasting from StackOverflow has never been as easy

Saturday, 19 March 2016, 00:05

I work in Berlin but live in Szczecin - commute to work by train and have something like 2 hours per day to spend on doing something on my laptop. I also cannot sleep until late hours (just like today) so I have few more hours. That gives me few hours per day after my regular work to spend on something on my laptop. Sometimes I do my private projects, sometimes I do spare-time freelance projects, but from time to time I like playing with new stuff. This is how PopStack was born.

JSON-RPC services with pl.chilldev.commons

Saturday, 16 May 2015, 23:03

Yesterday a new version of pl.chilldev.commons (0.0.3) introduced a completely new component - pl.chilldev.commons:commons-jsonrpc. It is designed to ease building JSON-RPC services. It glues Apache MINA networking library with JSON-RPC 2.0 Base library. Thanks for using MINA, unlike most of the other JSON-RPC libraries, services are using plain TCP layer, without any envelope like HTTP. This gives possibility for making them more robust and efficient - client can use one connection session to interact asynchronously with the server with multiple parallel requests.

ChillDev-Facelets - various Spring-based Facelets handlers

Wednesday, 12 November 2014, 22:27

Digging more and more into Java and building more and more apps with Spring I began to discover more and more technologies. One of my, probably key, decisions was to use Facelets as a view technology. Seems to be quite simple, but it isn't so - first of all Spring has a very limited integration possibilities for Facelets views; secondly Facelets are based on a different concepts than classic view templating engines like JSP, Velocity etc.; and finally Facelets are strictly designed for JSF framework so some of core features depend on it. But it's not impossible! Basic integration with Facelets is provided by Spring itself by variable resolver class that resolves Facelets variables by using Spring beans. Even better integration is possible by using Spring Web Flow which provides view resolver. What is missing is the integration of many core components, which are available in JSP tags. I began to create taglibs to fill missing gaps.

Symfony2 your way

Sunday, 29 June 2014, 23:01

Last Friday, on Tech Fusion (a tech meetup in Szczecin, Poland), I had a talk about using Symfony2 to build own applications. The main purpose of it was to present various ways in which this flexible framework can be adapted to the needs of your application (without doing dirty, nasty and ugly hacks). It's not a complete compendium - a form of a meetup restricted it to be a maximum of 30 minutes talk, to present essential solutions and aspects of this subject. If you missed it, don't worry! It's already available online on SlideShare.

ChillDev-Web - web page model library for Java

Thursday, 12 June 2014, 20:49

Last time I'm trying to migrate more and more towards technologies different than PHP, which I always found primitive and messed-up, but was skilled enought to do some fancy stuff with it. Even though I often play with different technologies and languages, I always liked Java and I'm moving more and more into it with my projects. For me, especially after years of PHP development, the biggest disadvantage is lack of many presentation-related features in JSP layer and MVC frameworks. I've decided to spend sime time trying my skills and reminding myself a bit of Java with creating library for JSP presentation technology that would help managing page meta-data. Basically is an attempt to port ChillDevViewHelpersBundle, my Symfony2 bundle, for Java/Spring.

ChillDev-Commons Java library

Saturday, 05 April 2014, 15:43

Last time I'm playing more and more with Java. And like always some parts of project I'm working on were absolutely generic. As an enthusiast of technologry and open-source I decided to publish them as ChillDev-Commons - losely coupled general-purpose routines library for Java. There is no particular idea about them, just released those classes that are completely generic and can be used by anyone - maybe they will be helpful. Hopefuly project will grow a little in future.
