The State of API Integration 2018: Get Cloud Elements’ report for the most comprehensive breakdown of the API integration industry’s past, present, and future.

Make sure you didn't miss anything with this list of the Best of the Week in the Enterprise Integration Zone (December 05 - December 12). Here they are, in order of popularity:

1. Developing Microservices for PaaS with Spring and Cloud Foundry

  • These factors have contributed to drive a change in how we approach infrastructure, which is adapting to meet these needs with the move to the cloud, and Platform as a Service (PaaS) offerings like Cloud Foundry have raised the level of abstraction to a focus on an ecosystem of applications and services.

2. Don’t Be “Clever”: The Double Curly Braces Anti-Pattern

  • You might say that one way to circumvent all that hassle from issue 3 is to make the quickHarmlessMethod() a static method to prevent that enclosing instance, and you’re right about that.

3. Architectural Principles, Spring Framework, and Jersey JAX-RS

  • Either you have to create your own libraries or you have to learn someone else's. This is in addition to wrestling with the business problem you're supposed to be solving. But you can often manage your own boilerplate more easily than you can come to grips with a framework.

4. Spring Request-Level Memoization

  • Memoization is a method-level caching technique for speeding-up consecutive invocations.

5. Bulk Update/Delete using the Criteria API in JPA 2.1/Java EE 7

  • It has long been possible to do bulk updates and deletes using JPQL in JPA.

Your API is not enough. Learn why (and how) leading SaaS providers are turning their products into platforms with API integration in the ebook, Build Platforms, Not Products from Cloud Elements.
