Microservices! They are everywhere, or at least, the term is. When should you use a microservice architecture? What factors should be considered when making that decision? Do the benefits outweigh the costs? Why is everyone so excited about them, anyway?  Brought to you in partnership with IBM.

I’ve recently discovered Dash. It’s an API documentation browser which gives you offline access to 130+ API documentation sets. So once it’s installed, you can download the docsets you want and here you are with a single tool for all your documentation.

I’ve installed all the docsets I needeed (Javadoc, SQL documentation, Man, Boostrap 3, HTML 5, CSS…) and I find myself using it more and more often, for browsing and searching APIs. But something was missing : the Java EE 7 API Javadoc !!! Dash let’s you create and manage your owndocsets. So I’ve created the Java EE 7 Dash Docset and I’m sharing it with you.

Download Java EE 7 Docset

Download my Java EE 7 Dash Docset from Bintray. It’s a zip file (javaee7_docset.tgz) that you unzip into the Dash Docset directory (on Mac it’s under ~/Library/Application Support/Dash/DocSets/). To install the Java EE 7 Docset on your Mac just do as follow:

$ mkdir ~/Library/Application\ Support/Dash/DocSets/Java_EE7
$ tar -xf javaee7_docset.tgz -C ~/Library/Application\ Support/Dash/DocSets/Java_EE7/

Then, you launch Dash and you should get this :

Java EE 7 in Dash

I’ve requested this docset to be included in Dash. So maybe one day it will come by default. In the meantime, feel free to download it.
