In the past few weeks I have been working with Elasticsearch. I was missing a plugin to look at the data, create queries and evaluate different facets. That was when I decided to start working on a plugin that enables you to do just this. I have been working on AngularJS together with Twitter Bootstrap, […]
So as promised here is a sequel to my previous post Introducing the elasticshell. Let’s start exactly where we left off… What about search? We of course need to search against the created index.

Some people on the Axon Framework mailing list were asking for more basic samples, preferably using something like vert.x. Since I am familiar with Axon as well as vert.x I thought I could help out. Therefore I have created a very basic application based on vert.x using the Axon Framework. The application is all about […]
Introduction In a previous blog post we introduced the Spring Insight module that’s part of SpringSource’s tc Server developer edition and gives you, well, insight into what’s taking up the time to process requests in your applications.
