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.

At the very beginning of last year, I decided to track my reading habits and share the best stuff here, on Baeldung. Haven't missed a review since.

Here we go…

1. Spring and Java

>> JEP 269: Convenience Factory Methods for Collections [java.net]

Quick and clean JDK making collection creation easier in Java. This is how the language gets better.

>> Resource versioning with Spring MVC [mscharhag.com]

Highly useful writeup on making your static assets cacheable with Spring – simple and to the point.

Also worth reading:

Webinars and presentations:

Time to upgrade:

2. Technical

>> Writing an Event-Sourced CQRS Read Model [squirrel.pl]

Yet another solid writeup exploring the details of an Event-Sourced architecture – this time focusing on re-projecting all events on to an empty projection.

>> Scale it to Billions — What They Don’t Tell you in the Cassandra README [threatstack.com]

If you're running a Cassandra cluster, this stuff can and will save your bacon.

Also worth reading:

3. Musings

>> Remember to Reevaluate [bitquabit.com]

Maybe taking a second look at a technology that I formed an opinion on five years ago is a good idea. That being said – I'm not looking at SVN again.

>> The Universality of Postel's Law [michaelfeathers.silvrback.com]

“Design is deep topic. One could say it’s the deepest.”

>> How we lost (and found) millions by not A/B testing [signalvnoise.com]

Good take-aways from a major design change, a re-positioning campaign and a general re-brand.

Also worth reading:

4. Comics

And my favorite comics of the week:

>> Coder leaves nothing to chance [commitstrip.com]

>> The blob-ject [commitstrip.com]

>> Picture a Grassy Field [xkcd.com]

5. Pick of the Week

I haven't been super public with this – but a few months back I opened up Baeldung to other authors.

I've been slowly realizing that I just can't cover all the cool stuff readers are asking me to write about, so if you're interested in writing for the site – send me a line:
