Instead of creating another batch application, I really wanted to stick with the same application but just create two threads, each monitoring its own queue. However, the twist I need is to have the… Continue reading Java concurrency – Multiple queue monitors
After the cijug presentation on Grails, I’ve decided I will not use it. I know Grails is hot and cool but I don’t like it. It’s probably just a personal preference.

A business rule at work requires some flexible configurations. I attempted to fulfill the need by create different spring batch steps/tasklets to execute each requirement based on a property value. For example, step 1 will need to execute methodOne on the class Repository with the appropriate parameters. The method signature & parameters are determined by… Continue reading Dynamically invoke methods using spring config

I wish I could just pass in the parent class but since it’s abstract I cannot… Continue reading Java instaniate an abstract class… sort of…
Not really a new trick but I had to look for the syntax today to use reflection to set a private property on an object to use it in a junit test.
