FrontPageFilter - SPA with server side pages in Java

Thursday, 06 October 2016, 20:29

Time flies, browsers become more and more modern, they are more and more up-to-date. As the common web standards and new frontend technologies are being adopted you can shift more stuff to the client-side. Particularily it means nowadays you can leave most of the frontend part on your JavaScript application shoulders. Thanks to that SPA approach is getting more and more popular. Especially that most search engines and webmaster tools are now able to understand and execute JavaScript code to build full site representation for analysis. With all of these in mind it's an attractive idea to develop your backend application as a pure JSON API (it doesn't have to be pure REST) and handle everything related to presentation layer on a frontend (browser) side. But you still need an application to serve it all from your server(s). Which means your backend application still needs to be a web application.

Java+AWS Lambda+Spring - a little less wrong way

Sunday, 07 May 2017, 22:46

FaaS approach is still quite fresh and developers keep comming out with better and better solutions for handling it. One of the leading cloud services providing function applications is AWS Lambda and here I will describe my exprience with it, but I'm pretty sure these clues can apply regardless of provider, which you use. Obviously when a developer face new environment, like this, the easiest way is to try it out with your known technological stack. And no matter how improper it seems to be, you can handle it with Java. And when Java, you will very likely also think of using Spring to help you with it. How? Why? Why not?
