Talking about Fediz OIDC at Apache Con NA 2016

Colm and myself are going to talk about Fediz OpenId Connect at Apache Con NA 2016. The session is on Friday 13th May.

Be there if you can, you can then tell your grandchildren you were at the 1st public presentation about Fediz OIDC :-)

I do look forward to being at Apache Con again. Seeing and talking to the colleagues from Apache CXF and other projects is always super great.

[OT] U2 Innocence And Experience or Understand HTTP services with CXF

I've already told to all of my colleagues who would listen how lucky I was to get a chance to listen live to U2 who played several concerts in Dublin as part of their Innocence and Experience tour

I've already told why I like U2. But seeing them playing live is really special. The voice is so good it is shocking at first. They are hard working and innovative, despite not being that young any more, the latter part is something I can definitely associate with :-).

In all of the [OT] entries on my blog I'm trying to look for a 'connection' to Apache CXF. No exception this time:

Apache CXF is not only a place where one can have a Web/HTTP Service created. But also go from a Novice to Expert in building such services. CXF may not offer a way for a Hello World application be created for you without doing anything at all. But it has been known to deliver in supporting most demanding services. By the time the developers have those services up and running they have become the experts who know what it takes to write a service that works well. They have moved from the 'Innocence' of Hello World services to 'Experience' required to support Real World services. 



CXF Master JAX-RS 2.1 Branch is Opened

Good news for CXF JAX-RS users: Andriy Redko has opened a CXF Master JAX-RS 2.1 branch. Server Side Events is the first feature of 2.1 API which is supported on this branch. Having this 2.1 API Snapshot is handy.

The development of JAX-RS 2.1 has been frustratingly slow but there's some progress nonetheless with Jersey (RI) expected to be ready as soon as realistically possible, given that all the major features proposed for JAX-RS 2.1 have already been implemented in Jersey.

JAX-RS is easily the best API for building REST clients and servers. Despite the process difficulties it will continue evolving. Use it and believe more is to come in the JAX-RS space.
