JPMorgan’s Tyger project

April 21, 2006 Leave a comment

Tyger is JPMorgan’s open source stack for Java applications. Check out the following article – JPMorgan’s ‘Tyger’ Roars Ahead. Tyger is based Apache+Tomcat, Spring, Maven, and Hibernate or iBatis for RDBMS integration. It’s good to see that the banks take open source seriously.

Hibernate in Action

January 1, 2005 Leave a comment

Finally finished Rod Johnson’s “J2EE Design and Development” afew weeks ago. I’ve plowed through the Hibernate doco and now I’m onto “Hibernate in Action”. I was surprised to find the following inane comment:

Doing away with Java and SQL and starting from scratch isn’t considered elegant.

Perhaps it could be elegant! Though not very practical…

I wasn’t surprised to see non-relational data management poo pooed. But rather than saying “only RDBMS are supported by Hibernate”, we get:

Are the relational data model and (especially) SQL the right choices for peristence in object-oriented application? We answer this question immediately: Yes! There are many reasons why SQL databases dominate the computing industry. Relational database management systems are the only proven data management technology and are almost always a requirement in any Java project.

Probably true if a little overstated. Hibernate certainly take a practical stance to object persistence.

Spring and Hibernate

August 30, 2004 Leave a comment

We’re using Hibernate at work but not Spring yet. We are using WebLogic Web Services and Flash Remoting which potentially make Spring less useful. However, I’m been reading alot about Spring lately and related topics lately:

* Demonstrating Spring’s Finesse
* Persistence In Spring
* Better, Faster, Lighter Programming in .NET and Java
* “Better, Faster, Lighter Java” sample chapters ch00.pdf ch03.pdf ch10.pdf
* still struggling through Expert One-on-One J2EE Design and Development

Looks like “Better, Faster, Lighter Java” would be a good but small book. Probably not necessary if you just use Spring, Hibernate etc. Also, Rod Johnson’s newest book “Expert One-on-One J2EE Development without EJB” could be good but when you already believe it…
