If you have a Spring 2 application using MuleESB in 2.x version, and you initialize the mule using
SpringXmlConfigurationBuilder, you may notice that this simply doesn’t work in Spring 3 ;)

I’ve recently had a requirement of setting up the application to work in high-availability environment, which among the others involved hardiness for database (mysql) crash. We established with the customer that we want to have a second database server, where the mysql database mirror will be maintained using master-slave mysql replication. In this model the master mysql server takes care of synchronizing records from itself to the slave server, and the slave server is available in fail-scenario for the application in read-only mode.

A substantial time amount passed since last post in this blog caused only because I’m recently very busy, although the list of interested subjects to describe in my Tomboy notes are extending monthly. Unfortunately I don’t know when the appropriate time comes to make it… Anyway today I had some more free day and I needed to setup some Trac environments for the team and the customers. Casually I reviewed some Trac plugins, that seemed to me sensible, and should increase productivity with Trac. Bellow is the short list of those I’ve found useful.

Some time ago I wrote few words about some dynamic forms implementation methods using LazyList or AutoPopulatingList with items removing. The problem that interested me today was related to this subject, but concerned something else: how to implement dynamic forms in the way, so that it can be used transparently for any object (even a Hibernate entity) without creating specialized form beans for that.

Everyone using Eclipse + SVN (or other non-locking version control system) has gone through the hell of editing conflicts with default Eclipse tool. I don’t know, maybe there are people liking this, but for me is very unhandy, messy and produces more work than doing the merge without any tool. I just cannot see what is currently merged, how it’s done and what is to be done already in default eclipe conflicts editor window.

In the production environment web application debuging is not so easy. Especially because when multiple users perform multiple actions in the same time, the output log is interleaved, and the step-by-step situation is hard to reproduce in development lab. The solution for that can be by injecting user name into the log, and then “grepping” the source log in looking for particular user paths.

If you look for the way of making your expensive algorithm faster, you may consider multithreading and concurrency. You can divide your data into the parts and start threads to handle each part concurrently. This looks easy but sometimes there are some additional requisites that you need to obey doing that.

Solving some interesting problems in the project I’m currently working on I started to analyse following problem: you have a large data set (eg. a file) on which you need to apply some expensive transformation (eg. compression). The key requirement is a performance.

Browsing internet you can easily find a common method of implementing dynamic forms in JEE world. This is usually done using LazyList from apache commons-collections, or AutoPopulatingList from Spring. I don’t want to repeat these descriptions, you can find nice examples here (using LazyList) or here (using AutoPopulatingList).
