In my last post, I delivered on a reusable, file archival schedulable job. I promised to next look at doing something similar for file cleanup.
Debugging methods can be categorized as active and passive. Active debuggers reduce the code size to be visited for bug hunting, while passive debuggers display any information you need. We introduce some new active methods. We also show how the usage of active debuggers helps you to debug more efficiently.
You might have noticed that we have been doing a lot of work on the operational side of things.

When setting out to use Git there are lots of basic tutorials, but none that approach it from a zero-to-hero in a team environment. In this blog series I am going to trying to set out to change all that by walking you through the steps from working in a non-Git source control environment to using DVCS with other people.
Here’s a familiar scene: You’ve finished developing your application or a neat new feature and you’ve created the right system logs for new capabilities. You’re confident that if something breaks, you can easily spot the errors and overcome them efficiently.
We all have “enjoyed” working with some software that was purchased because “You can’t get fired because you bought…”. This software is known for being the industry leader. Not because it is easy to use, easy to integrate, easy to scale, easy to do anything with,… It often is quite the opposite.
Unit testing is a set of skills, that rarely appears on a resume. When I saw a resume with unit testing on it, it rose up to the top of the interview queue. I understood the person who put it there understand what it means to the business.
Here is how you can automate deployment for WebLogic server using the command line.

Do you use anemic models? i.e. having business classes like “User” without any methods but just properties instead? Do you want to do better but do not know how?
In the forthcoming articles we consider traditional and state of the art debuggers, introduce some new methods make debugging easier and describe and efficient process of bug hunting. In this first article we shortly outlined the main methods of traditional debugging, and explain their advantages and disadvantages.
Monitoring is a big part of DevOps, but what’s the best way to get started? Infrastructure monitoring? Application monitoring? What should you monitor? Where should that data go? How can you turn data into information and monitoring into alerts? What about alert fatigue and humane monitoring?
Let’s start with #1 on the list, the simplest, but one of the most important things that you can do to secure your application: Parameterize Database Queries. One of the most dangerous and most common attacks on online applications is SQL Injection.
