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

>> How We Migrated Our Backend to Spring Boot in 3 Weeks [stormpath.com]

Definitely an interesting writeup of how Stormpath basically migrated their entire codebase to Spring Boot.

>> We Crunched 1 Billion Java Logged Errors – Here’s What Causes 97% of Them [takipi.com]

Some fun numbers and insights, despite the link-baity title.

>> How to persist additional attributes for a relationship with JPA and Hibernate [thoughts-on-java.org]

Some advanced Hibernate/JPA goodness about more complex relationship information and understanding how to handle these well.

Also worth reading:

Webinars and presentations:

2. Technical

>> Hash and Salt Your Users' Passwords [martinfowler.com]

When it comes to password storage, this writeup covers the basics, sure – but it does so in a well structured, clear way. Definitely worth a quick read.

Also worth reading:

3. Musings

>> Observations and thoughts on the LinkedIn data breach [troyhunt.com]

Very interesting, in-depth analysis of the LinkedIn data breach.

>> Solve Small Problems [daedtech.com]

This is definitely one to read, as it sheds some light into how real progress is usually made – one unassuming brick at a time.

Also worth reading:

4. Comics

And my favorite Dilberts of the week:

>> Don't turn your back [dilbert.com]

>> Just do your job and leave the strategy to management [dilbert.com]

>> I'll use this dummy to demonstrate … [dilbert.com]

5. Pick of the Week
