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.

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

>> Solving Fat JAR Woes at HubSpot [infoq.com]

A very interesting look at (and solution for) the scaling problems of using Fat Jars beyond a certain point.

>> AWS Lambda for Serverless Java Developers: What's in It for You? [takipi.com]

A nice, quick intro to AWL Lambda.

>> Benefits of @Repeatable annotations in Hibernate 5.2 [thoughts-on-java.org]

I had no idea most Hibernate annotations are now repeatable. Very nice.

>> Spring Boot Microservice Development on Kubernetes: The Easy Way [christianposta.com]

Very useful series of screencasts, going deep into how to run Spring Boot on Docker and Kubernetes.

>> Spring Boot: Show all logging events for one Web request only [moelholm.com]

Very nicely done – using the log like a scalpel not like a machete.

2. Technical and Musings

>> DDD Decoded – Application Services Explained [sapiensworks.com]

>> DDD Decoded – Modelling with CQS [sapiensworks.com]

>> DDD Decoded – Domain Relationships Explained [sapiensworks.com]

DDD is definitely one of the best ways to work on your architectural chops, and this series is clear and to the point explaining some of the basic concepts.

>> Fixing JSON [tbray.org]

Inside notes on making JSON better with the help of some minor tweaks.

>> Do you want a framework or a solution? [ontestautomation.com]

It's well worth approaching test automation in a structured, intentional way, and most importantly with an open mind to picking a tool you might not yet be familiar with.

Otherwise – and I speak from experience – you may end up with a rats nest of unreliable tests.

>> Scaling Elasticsearch for Multi-Tenant, Multi-Cluster [loggly.com]

I really enjoyed reading through this writeup, mainly because I did a multi-tenant implementation on top of Elasticsearch when the platform was much less mature.

It's a solid platform, but not without its very real and thorny issues.
