some time ago Aljona showed
how to monitor and manage your java application with jmx

I'm going to show, how you can make use of JMX from the viewpoint of a sysadmin.

initial point:

You have a Java-application deployed in an applicationserver like JBoss or Tomcat and you want to monitor the health of this application(including the applicationserver and the Java-virtual-machine it is running in) with a tool like Nagios.

Die 7. "Free an Opensource Software Conference" fand zwar schon letztes Wochenende in St. Augustin (nahe Bonn) statt, aber darüber zu bloggen lohnt sich dennoch. Denn die FrOSCon ist mit 5€ Eintritt (bzw. 100€ Business-Support) nicht nur eine der günstigsten Konferenzen, sondern wie ich finde auch eine der lohnenswertesten.

Wer sich öfters auf unserer Webpräsenz umschaut, hat sicherlich bemerkt, dass wir unsere Open Source Projekte bisher auf veröffentlicht haben. Die Pflege von, z.B. das manuelle Freischalten neuer User, nahm viel Zeit in Anspruch, und ehrlich gesagt, programmieren wir lieber als User zu verwalten.

With the redesign of our current homepage there was the chance to re-evaluate our requirements and make pragmatic decisions filling our needs.

Our previous websites were always implemented in OpenCms since we are OpenCms Solution Provider and contributor. Using a CMS like OpenCms seemed the natural decision and it worked well for several versions of our homepage. But given the amount of work needed to set it up, develop templates and administrate it, was it really what we needed?

More and more Projects at our company are taking advantage of distributed and local revision control by using git. So to make a complete software-project fit for git, by not only using git-svn with subversion and git on top, some more steps are required than just handling files with git, learning its syntax and understanding the way it works…

Matching the time of my talk at this years OpenCms Days we released our module for integrating Solr with OpenCms. A few days have passed now and we had the time to polish the documentation and some aspects of the module.

Solr is a search server that is based on the de facto standard for indexing in Java, Apache Lucene. It provides an abstraction layer above the low level details of indexing and adds some useful features like facetting and synonyms.

Open Source is not just about available sources or certain licenses. Successful Open Source projects have a community that matters, not just users, strong leaders that listen and still communicate their vision and goal, growing base of contributors who don't want to be ignored, even if there's a benevolent dictator as project lead.

Open Source Projekte

Synyx entwickelt bereits seit Jahren Anwendungen und Programme auf Basis von Open Source. Rund 20 Mitarbeiter entwickeln, optimieren und leben Open Source Anwendungen. Denn wer Open Source Solutions programmiert, lebt eine Philosophie.

Einige im Laufe der Zeit selbst entwickelten Tools stellt Synyx der Communitiy wieder zur Verfügung. Darunter sind sowohl selbstfinanzierte Entwicklungen als auch Tools die ursprünglich im Kundenauftrag entwickelt wurden und welche von diesen als Dank für die Community frei zugänglich gemacht wurden.

A while ago we wanted to store internationalisation for a project in database to allow (a subset of) users to create and update internationalisation using the application itself. When we searched the web for existing projects that allow to do this we did not find a good and ready to use solution. This is why we decided to write the code ourselves and make it available to others, especially since there was some public demand and it will probably not be shipped by SpringSource (check out Google for details).
