Angularjs technologies

It is often important to simultaneously show a fairly large number of elements on a web page to provide users with the most concise information possible. In order to make all those elements visible on a screen, their functionality usually has to be considerably limited. That is when the ability to open every separate element in a fullscreen view can be very helpful. This post shows how this can be achieved in AngularJS, with two custom directives which allow to move elements to a fullscreen view without changing their scope.

Grails, hazelcast, multithreading technologies

Recently, I have been looking for a way to implement thread synchronization in a Grails application which is hosted on several nodes on Rackspace. And while it's rather easy to synchronize threads within a single servlet container, it might be difficult to do it when the same data is simultaneously updated from separate server nodes. This post shows how this task can be solved with Hazelcast.

Zookeeper, groovy, configuration, curator, distributed technologies

This post is the second in the series of publications about using the Apache ZooKeeper for building configuration management solutions for a distributed system. It focuses on implementing a tool for loading initial configuration data into a fresh ZooKeeper ensemble.

Angularjs, javascript, braintree technologies

During drop in integration of Braintree into Angular.JS application we have faced several surprising caveats. This was the primary reason for current post to be born. We would like to share our expreince and solutions that we've learnt during this process.

Mongodb, scala, salat technologies

Usually a data access object for MongoDB consists of common routine CRUD methods. Those methods should be implemented, tested, maintained just like any other code. In this post, I'm going to show you how to use SalatDAO to vastly simplify the process.

Generally, Salat is used for serialization of case classes, enums and collections to
