Distributed Spring Integration

Recently, I was given an opportunity to code a use case that required the need to use EIP in a distributed environment. While trying to use the "Splitter" and "Aggregator" patterns, I had a chance to review the source code implementation of many of the components used to implement these using Spring Integration.

In one of my previous posts, I wrote about underscore-cli for looking at JSON output (e.g. to see the curl response from a REST web service). An alternative to this is jq, a command line processor for JSON in bash.

Some things about jq that make it powerful is that it can be used as a filter (that what jq really is). This means that you can select which parts of the JSON buffer be returned from the stream so that you can you do your own navigation.

Documenting Architecture Decisions - ADR

As I reviewed the 2017 Thoughtworks technology techniques trends, one cool recommendation was about to "try" the concept of Lightweight Architecture Decision Records. I must admit, I have been looking for something like this as I'm tired of having note pads everywhere, and I'm really trying to stay away from MS-Word documents and Powerpoints for developers. I have been looking for something lightweight, easy for developers to follow.
