Spring offers many namespaces for the XML Application Context configuration to make your life a lot easier. Although not often needed, it is easy to create your own namespaces and provide custom elements. It makes configuration easier. However, I noticed that the some of the IDE support is lost. By chance, I found an undocumented […]
It has been an exciting year. Little over a year ago, I started developing a framework to make it easier for developers to implement a highly scalable en extensible architecture. The first public Axon release (0.3) came out in April 2010, and was far from feature complete. Now, almost a year later, Axon has proven […]
For one of our projects, we use a GWT client that needs to be updated in near-real time (< 1 second delay) when something relevant happens on the server. There are multiple ways of doing it, but I tried to get it working with the new Servlet 3 feature: Asynchronous Http Request handling. Read on […]
The Axon Framework 1.0 release is closing in. After over a year of development, all features planned for the 1.0 version are included.

Although the 1.0-rc1 version doesn’t add a lot of new […]

This new version is a huge step towards the 1.0, of which the first milestone release should be available before March 2011. All basic building blocks […]
Axon Framework greatly simplifies building CQRS based Event Driven architectures in Java. Such an architecture provides very powerful options in terms of application scalability and extensibility. In this tutorial, I want to go though the process of setting up a basic application architecture with the Axon Framework.
Today, I released version 0.6 of the Axon Framework. 0.6 has many new features and is another step towards full production readiness. There is still some work to do, but first, let’s take a look at what has changed…
Today, I finalized the 0.5 release of the Axon Framework. There is quite a number of changes since the 0.4 version. The 0.5 version is a major step towards production readiness of the framework. Besides some changes to existing building blocks, such as the event bus, which is now much more powerful, the 0.5 version […]
At JTeam, we continuously strive for good quality code. The reason is very simple: bad quality code slows down the development process. The small investment pays out in even the simplest of projects. Measuring code quality is not a matter of a single metric. Instead, software quality has many aspects, some of which can be […]
On March 1st, Erik Rozendaal will give a presentation about Command Query Responsibility Seggregation (CQRS). Greg Young, one of the masterminds behind CQRS, has confirmed that he will be present during this meetup too. Seems like a good recipe for an interesting evening. Attendance is free, but registration is required. Read on for details.
