announcement - icon User management is very complex, when implemented properly. No surprise here.

Not having to roll all of that out manually, but instead integrating a mature, fully-fledged solution - yeah, that makes a lot of sense.
That's basically what Frontegg is - User Management for your application. It's focused on making your app scalable, secure and enjoyable for your users.
From signup to authentication, it supports simple scenarios all the way to complex and custom application logic.

On to the third week of January and my third Weekly Review – no time like the present to go into the picks.

On Spring

=> The Spring Framework 4.1 plan – and 4.0.1 & 3.2.7 releases coming up next week

This one had to start the list off – the plans for the upcoming Spring releases, so if you're working with Spring now or plan to do so, this is a must read.

=> SpringOne2GX 2013 Replay: REST-Ful API Evolution

Great video on evolving a REST API in the right way (with Hypermedia, not versions).

On Java

=> Exploiting encrypted cookies for fun and profit

Great material about what to use and what not to use encrypted cookies for – seriously worth reading.

=> Haste makes waste – here comes Hibernate Validator 5.1.0.Beta1

One more step towards Hibernate Validator 5.1 – which is getting more and more powerful.

=> Intro to Unit Testing 9: Tips and Tricks

Deep dive into unit testing – worth a read, especially if you've been TDD-ing (hope that's a verb) for years.

=> Builder pattern using Java 8

Fun way to build a POM with Java 8 clojures and a builder.

HTTP and REST

=> “That's not Hypermedia!”

If you're not already getting Mike Amundsen in your RSS feed (and what could possibly be the reason not to?) – this recent article discusses practical examples of what is and what isn't Hypermedia.

Technical

=> Segregated DOM

Martin Fowler on how to work with the DOM in a way that actually makes sense – great read (twice).

General Musings

=> Programmers, Teach Non-Geeks The True Cost of Interruptions

Fun article about a serious subject – productivity and interruptions. Some great insights into the different work patterns of a Maker and a Manager – for further reading on this, there's always the timeless: Maker's Schedule, Manager's Schedule.

Done

And that wraps up week 3 of January – happy reading.
