Written by ilgrossoEnd of year is time for balance, and mailing list discussion is probably the most important metrics of an open source project, at least when such project is part of The Apache Software Foundation, whose motto is Community over code. So why don't take a look at mailing list archives? Rob Weir did it recently for Apache OpenOffice and this was of inspiration for applying the same approach to Apache Syncope, using some good old shell scripting and Wordle app. Let's take a look at the results.
Written by ilgrossoThe Apache Syncope team is pleased to announce the release of Syncope 1.1.5 (Ad libitum). This fifth maintenance version fixes few important bugs and introduces some interesting improvements: more details below.
Written by ilgrossoThere are lots of ways of documenting RESTful APIs in Java: just google a bit and you will find the nice Enunciate and Swagger, for example. Such approachs, however, are often quite invasive and hardly customizable. Many providers - like as Apache CXF - are able to dynamically generate a WADL representation out of JAX-RS annotated classes: such XML representation can be easily put into an XSLT transformation in order to obtain some end-user REST documentation.

Written by ilgrossoStarting with recent SNAPSHOTs releases of 1.2.0, it has become fairly easy to call Apache Syncope via REST from your Java application.
Written by ilgrossoMy work companion is still the good old HP Envy 14 1100 that I wrote about a while ago: it is getting old after 2 years and a half, of course, but Linux helps me keeping it young.
Written by ilgrossoYesterday my dearest Siduction made me dist-upgrade to latest Linux kernel 3.10. I must admit I was a bit afraid at first (you know, running a kernel sooooo recent on a Debian box always smells "atypical"...) but I was confident enough in the GRUB power to take the risk.
