Java Top

I just announced the new Learn Spring course, focused on the fundamentals of Spring 5 and Spring Boot 2:

>> CHECK OUT THE COURSE

Overview and Criteria

There are several “Top Java Blogs” pages out there – but also a lot of noise.

Some of these blogs are abandoned with the last post a few years old, some have simply switched focused from Java to something else. Others are gone altogether.

This page is meant to an up to date view of the Java ecosystem.

In order for a blog/site to be listed, it needs to fit ALL of the following criteria:

  • Is Mostly About Java
  • Domain Authority > 35 (using the Open Site Explorer from Moz)
  • Alexa Rank < 500.000
  • Has Recent Activity (at least 10 relevant – Java – articles in the last 3 months)
  • More text than Ads on the page
  • Actually useful (in my view)

I would like to humbly suggest my website, which aggregates all of these websites and blogs: http://www.topjavablogs.com
Also it’s open-source, so anybody can make their own custom online blog aggregator: https://github.com/jirkapinkas/java-blog-aggregator/tree/latest

Hi – thanks for the suggestion. I did consider the site, and it’s a helpful resource, but as far as I could tell, it doesn’t actually host any content itself. It’s in a way similar to the main dzone aggregator which isn’t included either for the same reason. Cheers,
Eugen.

http://planetjdk.org/ is worth a look.

Thanks for the suggestion – yes, the site is sometimes useful, but it’s only an aggregator and doesn’t contain any original content. And for now, I am not including aggregators as much as possible. Cheers,
Eugen.

Hey Eugen,
Great list. Definitely going to be adding some of these to my reading list. I’ll chuck my site in there as well: http://www.corejavainterviewquestions.com. Bit more niche but been getting some good feedback.

Hey Sam – yeah, it’s a bit niche, but it looks interesting. I subscribed to your feed to keep track of it and it’s on the shortlist of sites to be added. I usually do consume for a bit before adding it though – a couple of weeks at least. Cheers,
Eugen.

Hi Eugen,

I would like to suggest my own blog at http://blog.codefx.org for the list. I’ve been writing since September and recently got some traction via reddit, which pushed my Alexa Rank to 4.900.000. I am mainly writing about Java.

Thanks in advance

Thank you for your consideration. I would of course also be delighted if I make it into your weekly reviews.

Hey Nicolai – I’ve been reading your blog for a while now – you’re putting out very cool and detailed pieces. Just wanted to follow up here and let you know that I added the site to the list. Cheers,
Eugen.

Not that I am aware. I have been using it (on and off) since noon UTC and had no problems. Does it work now?

No. Its pretty odd, I’m getting pings back from blog.codefx.org but the browsers refuse to show it claiming it timed out?
I logged into a server in the states and there I was able to see the site but from my machine its unreachable (located in Tel Aviv) odd…
