Manual installation of SVN connector with Subversive for Eclipse and SpringSource Tools Suite

In the last installation of STS I made, when I had the support of SVN by installing Subversive (from Menu > Help > Install New Software), Eclipse (Kepler) didn't ask me for the SVN connector I wanted to use. In this kind of situation, I discovered that it's possible to install it from an update site provided by Polarion.

So, go to to Polarion, and check out the url from the Download section. Here is the one I used :

http://community.polarion.com/projects/subversive/download/eclipse/3.0/kepler-site/

Then you can install your SVN connector (for me, it's always SVNKit which is a pure Java implementation connector).

To install SVNKit as an Eclipse plugin or to make sure that you have the latest version installed, use http://eclipse.svnkit.com/1.8.x/ as an update site location in Eclipse Update Manager.

In Eclipse menu select Help->Software Updates
Then choose 'Available Software' tab
Click 'Add Site...' button
Type http://eclipse.svnkit.com/1.8.x/ in the 'Location' field and press 'OK'.
Check the new site (it should appear in the list of update sites) and follow further steps as prompted by Eclipse.

Use http://eclipse.svnkit.com/1.3.x/ or http://eclipse.svnkit.com/1.7.x/ as an update site location to get older versions of SVNKit (1.3.8 or 1.7.12).

DCcduino usb drivers (CH340 / CH341 chipset)

I've just received my first arduino platform. It's a DCcduino board (a clone of Arduino Uno). As I had some difficulties to have it recognised by my MacBook, I decided to share its drivers. This card has a CH340 USB-to-serial chip. You can find drivers for this chip on the web site of the chinese manufacturer, here :

http://www.wch.cn/downloads.php?name=pro&proid=5

Or download it directly from my Google Drive. The archive contains drivers for Mac, Linux and Windows platforms.

I hope this will help somebody.

UPDATE for Mac users with Yosemite :

Please, follow this extra instructions :
Install the CH340 driverRun the command in Terminal: sudo nvram boot-args="kext-dev-mode=1"Reboot

The great alternative to JRebel

I'm an old user and addict of JRebel. I started to use it on open source projects and in professional contexts. From the beginning, I've been convinced that the licensing mode was wrong because of its lifetime. Asking for license renewal each year is boring. So, I decided to look for FREE alternative solutions and finally I recently found one.

This solution is efficient for maven projects developed with Eclipse. It is base on :

Hotswap Agent project : http://hotswapagent.org/Dynamic Source Lookup plugin for Eclipse : https://github.com/ifedorenko/com.ifedorenko.m2e.sourcelookup
I tested it with Java 7 & Java 8. I work on web applications that run on Tomcat. I developed wih Spring (IoC), sometimes Hibernate and Vaadin



Hotswap Agent installation consists on the deployment of a patch for your JVM. You just have to download the corresponding patch here : https://github.com/dcevm/dcevm/releases Then, download the hotswap-agent.jar from here : https://github.com/HotswapProjects…

How to secure REST services exposed with Jersey (JAX-RS) using Spring Security

This is the challenge I had to perform. I have to open services to business partners and I want to secure them. I use a Java based application with Jersey API (JAX-RS).

The first thing to consider is : what kind of solution offers the best compromise between security and the effort I'll have to provide to maintain this solution?
After some discussions with developers and experts, the conclusion is : expose your services over https and use Basic authentication (Digest authentication and certificate based authentication are too complex for partners)

So, how to implement that? I delegate "https" to my Apache http servers. But I still need to handle authentication (and authorization of course). After long hours on Google, I understood that it is possible to manage security with Jersey by many many ways. Here is a short list :

Delegate simple authentication and authorization to your container (Tomcat) or to your frontend (Apache)Delegate authentication to your container or fro…
