What is new in Java EE8(by example)

A developer's notes about upgrading to Java EE 8

Java EE 8 brings a plenty of new features which are valuable to build modern applications.

I have spent some time on updating myself to the newest Java EE 8 technology stack. This mini book is my learning notes when I refreshed my knowledge to Java EE 8. It will not cover the existing content in Java EE 7. If you are new to Java EE or need a comprehensive guide of Java EE, I suggest you read the official Java EE Tutorial carefully.

This mini book will cover JSF 2.3, CDI 2.0, JSON-B, Java EE Secuirty API 1.0, Servlet 4.0, JAX-RS 2.1 etc.

Sample codes

All sample codes mentioned in this book can be found here.
And the source codes of this book itself are also hosted on my github, check here.

Read it online

This book will be synchronized to Gitbook, go here to read it online.

Build a Reactive application with Angular 5 and Spring Boot 2.0

I have created a post to describe Reactive programming supports in Spring 5 and its subprojects, all codes of this article are updated the latest Spring 5 RELEASE, check spring-reactive-sample under my Github account.
In this post, I will create a simple blog system, including:
A user can sign in and sign out.An authenticated user can create a post.An authenticated user can update a post.Only the user who has ADMIN role can delete a post.All users(including anonymous users) can view post list and post details.An authenticated user can add his comments to a certain post. The backend will be built with the latest Spring 5 reactive stack, including:
Spring Boot 2.0, at the moment the latest version is 2.0.0.M7Spring Data MongoDB supports reactive operations for MongoDBSpring Session adds reactive support for WebSessionSpring Security 5 aligns with Spring 5 reactive stack The frontend is an Angular based SPA and it will be generated by Angular CLI.
The source code is hosted on Github, …

Activating CDI in JSF 2.3

Activating CDI in JSF 2.3 When I upgraed my Java EE 7 sample to the newest Java EE 8, the first thing confused me is the CDI beans are not recoganized in Facelects template in a JSF 2.3 based web applicaiton, which is working in the development version, but in the final release version, they are always resolved as null. I filed an issue on Mojarra and discussed it with the developers from communities and the JSF experts.
According to the content of README, In a JSF 2.3 application, to activate CDI support, declaring a 2.3 versioned faces-config.xml and adding javax.faces.ENABLE_CDI_RESOLVER_CHAIN in web.xml is not enough, you have to declare @FacesConfig annotated class to enable CDI.
Here is the steps I created a workable JSF 2.3 applicatoin in Java EE 8.
Create a Java web application, this can be done easily by NetBeans IDE, or generated by Maven archetype, for exmaple.
$ mvn archetype:generate -DgroupId=com.example -DartifactId=demo -DarchetypeArtifactId=maven-archetype-w…

JSF 2.3:Websocket support

Websocket support One of the most attractive features is JSF 2.3 added native websocket support, it means you can write real-time applications with JSF and no need extra effort.
To enable websocket support, you have to add javax.faces.ENABLE_WEBSOCKET_ENDPOINT in web.xml.
<context-param> <param-name>javax.faces.ENABLE_WEBSOCKET_ENDPOINT</param-name> <param-value>true</param-value> </context-param> Hello Websocket Let's start with a simple example.
