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.

A bit of a quicker one this week, as I'm writing it in between Spring IO sessions.

Here we go…

1. Spring and Java

>> Thymeleaf 3 – Get Started Quickly with Thymeleaf 3 and Spring MVC [codeleak.pl]

A quick and to the point intro to using Thymeleaf with Spring, hopefully getting the industry one step closer to never touching a JSP file ever again.

>> How to Split JUnit Tests in a Continuous Integration Environment [semaphoreci.com]

A solid, thorough writeup focused on intelligently separating the way different tests run in a CI pipeline. Very useful stuff.

>> 13 Decks Java Developers Must See to Stay Updated [takipi.com]

Some very interesting slide-decks worth going over. Not only for the subject matter, but also to see what the cadence of a good talk looks like.

Also worth reading:

Webinars and presentations:

Time to upgrade:

2. Technical

>> Cleanup Temp Files [techblog.bozho.net]

This is a quick writeup that I was thinking would make the “Also word reading” section below.

But, temporary files and applications that just keep growing and growing is such a common and overlooked problem that I think it's really worth thinking about if you're writing that kind of app.

Also worth reading:

3. Musings

>> Dirty Hacks Are OK [techblog.bozho.net]

I know this is not the best advice I’ve given” – that cracked me up.

But, in all seriousness, once you know the rules, yes, sometimes it's definitely OK to break them.

>> CodeFX Leveled Up [codefx.org]

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this piece, from so many points of view.

First, it's a clear, ambitious plan that I'm sure Nicolai is going to execute on well.

But more importantly – it represents forward movement in a space where so many people sit still for years and years – blogging. It's quite easy to find yourself settle in a rhythm and doing the things that you've always been doing.

Shake things up!

>> The Gravitational Force of Wage Labor [daedtech.com]

An interesting read on the dynamics of longer term consulting engagements.

>> DDD Is Expensive Is A Myth [sapiensworks.com]

Like all the other DDs, Domain Driven Design may look like it's more work at the beginning, but overall, the level of clarity that it brings into a system dwarfs the time it takes to understand and implement.

>> Simple Asynchronous Microservices using Lambda Architecture [vanillajava.blogspot.com]

A good first step towards understanding the Lambda architecture.

>> Lessons learned from delivering a test automation workshop [ontestautomation.com]

I'm doing more workshops this year, so I enjoyed going through this one. Have a look if you're interested in either side of the workshop experience.

Also worth reading:

4. Comics

And my favorite Dilberts of the week:

>> I won't bother using real words [dilbert.com]

>> OK, let's begin wasting our time [dilbert.com]

>> Take your time. I'm good either way [dilbert.com]

5. Pick of the Week

>> Who wants to live in The Real World? [m.signalvnoise.com]
