Sample Node-RED Flow Using Websockets
Tue, Jan 13th 2015 9:11a   Ryan- Baxter
I have been using Node-RED as part of Bluemix for a while now, it is super easy to build some pretty powerful applications by just dragging, dropping, and configuring “nodes” right in your browser.  90% of the time you don’t need to write any code, and when you do, the code is very simplistic.  I find Node-RED to be a great tool for getting something up an running quickly, for example when building a prototype or participating in a hackathon.  In a couple weeks I will be doi

Securing REST APIs With Spring Boot
Tue, Jan 6th 2015 7:14a   Ryan- Baxter
In my previous post I described how to build REST APIs with Spring Boot.  One glaring omission to that post was security.  Security can be a daunting part of building any app because if you get it wrong there are huge implications.  Luckily with Spring Boot, like with most other things, adding security to your applications is pretty simple. All you need to do is add a dependency to your Maven POM.  If we take the project from the previous blog post all you need to add is org.springframewor

Building REST APIs With Spring Boot
Wed, Dec 17th 2014 10:11a   Ryan- Baxter
Building upon my previous blog post on Spring Boot, I would now like to talk about building REST APIs with Spring Boot.  For the past 3 years or so, I have not created a web application that did not have REST APIs.  REST has become the go to way for building web services in today’s applications.  I am not going to spend time discussing what REST is or why it is so popular so if you are not familiar with REST and the benefits of building REST APIs there are plenty of good resources out

Building “Bootiful” Java Apps
Mon, Dec 8th 2014 10:11a   Ryan- Baxter
A few months ago when I started to learn Node.js I came across code that looked like thisvar http = require('http'); http.createServer(function (req, res) {   res.writeHead(200, {'Content-Type': 'text/plain'});   res.end('Hello World'); }).listen(3000);If you are not familiar with JavaScript, this code starts an HTTP server running on localhost at port 3000 and when you hit http://localhost:3000 it returns the string “Hello World”. This code isn’t really impress

Dedicated Bluemix Instances On Softlayer And Bluemix UK

Greetings from Strata + Hadoop Worlds in Barcelona Spain.  Yesterday was a big day for Bluemix with two major announcements. The first announcement was the addition of a new Bluemix “region” in the UK.  At a high level, this means that you can now deploy and run your apps within our UK data center.  This will obviously helps with latency concerns for users you may have in the UK region.  Deploying apps to the UK data center in the Bluemix UI is as simple as selecting the the UK r

Updated: Bluemix and the Internet of Things
Wed, Nov 12th 2014 2:22p   Ryan- Baxter
A few weeks ago we moved the Internet of Things service out of beta indicating it was ready for prime time.  This was exciting news except for the fact that it introduced some breaking changes, code written against the beta IoT service would most likely not work with the new service.  This included code I had written a few months ago to demonstrate the beta IoT service.  I finally had some time to go back and update this code so it works with the new IoT service.  The new code is now availab

Accessing Application Logs In Bluemix
Wed, Oct 29th 2014 10:14a   Ryan- Baxter
Being able to view your application’s log files is essential for any developer.  Developers use their log statements to gain insight into what is happening in their application throughout the application lifecycle.  Accessing your logs when running your application locally is easy, but when the application is deployed to a remote server things get a little bit trickier.  In the past, when deploying your app to your own infrastructure or even infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) you could acce

Why I Have Started To Embrace The Command Line
Wed, Oct 1st 2014 12:11p   Ryan- Baxter
Last night my tweet inspired a debate on Twitter about the use of the command line.  Oddly enough I was in a meeting with a customer yesterday and due to some problem I encountered during my demo I had to open the command line.  Once I did this he immediately asked me “Do I need to use the command line?”.  (As a side note the person who asked this question was not a developer or system admin.)   In addition a few weeks ago at MWLUG, Nathan Freeman, who I have the utmost respect

Using Your Domino Data In Apps Deployed To Bluemix
Mon, Sep 22nd 2014 6:11a   Ryan- Baxter
Over the past few weeks I have done presentations on Bluemix at two ICS user groups, MWLUG and ICONUK.  I did pretty much the same presentation at both mainly focused on introducing developers to Bluemix.  Obviously, since these user groups are focused mainly around ICS, there is interest in how Domino and XPages fits into the Bluemix story.  Well as of right now you cannot deploy your XPages apps to Bluemix.  However, Kramer Reeves announced at MWLUG that ICS is investigating how to make th

Achieving The Elusive Hybrid Cloud With Bluemix
Thu, Aug 28th 2014 6:12a   Ryan- Baxter
Public clouds are great.  They offer great elasticity and cost savings, and in the case of a PaaS like Bluemix, allows us (developers) to forget about maintaining any infrastructure and focus in on our code.  However we all realize that public cloud can’t be used for everything.  There are some applications and services that must remain in our own data centers on private networks.  The reasons why vary, maybe it is too much work to move the resource to the cloud, or maybe the data in t
