Issue with Jersey Multipart Libraries: Missing start boundary

Posted by & filed under , .

This one had me pulling my hairs off and going crazy trying to figure it out so I thought it deserves a space on my blog 🙂 While it’s what it looks like a small fix, it turned out to be a b**ch in terms of googling for an answer as whatever combination of search […]

Tracking Users Online — Part 3

Posted by & filed under , , .

I’ve been lucky enough to get some time on my hands to put together a small release of the PixelServer project — and this is the post to accompany it. If you’re familiar with my posts from this series (see the previous entry here btw), you know that the code is hosted on Github under […]

Mobile Advertising Takes Us Back in the ’90s

Posted by & filed under , , .

I have to get this off my chest as it’s been bugging me for a while and just been reminded this morning of this issue so had to pick up the keyboard and blog (moan?) about it. I’m not the biggest mobile user — arguably! — however, like most people out there I find myself […]

Tracking Users Online — Part 2

Posted by & filed under , .

First release of this project on Github is now out there. And as promised in my “pilot” post of this series, this post will walk you through what went into this release and why. The project itself as you recall is available on Github in this repository: https://github.com/liviutudor/PixelServer. The version for this release is pixelserver-1.0.0 […]

Tracking Users Online — Part 1

Posted by & filed under , .

I’ve written before in my blog about privacy online, cookies, user tracking and so on. The idea isn’t new at all and it is encountered on every decent website out there. (In fact, I use a few different solutions on my blog for various reasons: analyzing the number of unique visitors, page views, filtering comments, […]

ICanHaz.js Templating Issues

Posted by & filed under , , .

I’ve only just discovered ICanHaz.js I have to admit and as such I’m a bit of a moron when it comes to using it I guess. Still though, I felt the need to write up on this as I’ve been digging around the net for a while and the only resource helpful that I found […]

Ad Viewability

Posted by & filed under , , .

Not long ago, Magnetic, the company I work for, released their whitepaper on ad viewability so I thought it necessary to share my thoughts on this rather new concept, which seems to be either misunderstood or completely missed by a lot of companies still. First of all, the whitepaper released by Magnetic and to which […]

Java 8 Accumulators and Adders

Posted by & filed under , , , .

If you’ve been using Java for a while now, then like me, you must have saluted the move quite a while back in JDK 1.5 to introduce the atomic classes (AtomicLong, AtomicBoolean and so on). They were a big step forward, away from the clunkyness of having to create ridiculous bottlenecks in the code for […]

New Blog Layout and New Intrepidity Theme Changes

Posted by & filed under , , .

So I’ve bitten the bullet finally, and changed my blog layout. For those of you repeated visitors I’m sure you noticed, for the rest of you who are new to my site, it’s worth saying that the old theme has been on my blog since its inception — which is a few good years back, […]

Play Framework

About the Play! Framework and Their Thread Pooling

Posted by & filed under , , .

This is a rather interesting find and I’m still looking into it — so hopefully will come back with more insights on it — but I thought I’d publish these things as I find them. So bear with me as I unravel this mistery — as of right now, unless I’m looking in the wrong […]

Script to Quickly Create a Java Spring MVC Project

Posted by & filed under , , .

I’ve been (a bit) frustrated recently with the lack of support for quickly creating a Spring MVC project skeleton — there seems to be some maven archetypes but most of them I found to either not be maintained for a while and/or they install so much stuff that I decided not to use them. All […]
