I'd like to highlight two interesting Enterprise Tech Tips that were added over the last few months to the Enterprise Tech Tips blog. The first, Converged Enterprise Applications, by Prasad Subramanian, is a follow up to an earlier tip on Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) servlets and their use in voice-related applications. The earlier tip introduced the concept of a converged enterprise application -- an enterprise application that has a SIP servlet application bundled within it. The follow-up tip goes into more detail about this concept and provides a working example. Prasad Subramanian is the project lead for the Sailfin project, an open source implementation of a SIP servlet container using the GlassFish application server.
The second tip covers Jersey's support for Spring. The tip is written by Paul Sandoz, co-spec lead and implementation lead for JSR-311, the Java API for RESTful Web Services (JAX-RS). Jersey is an open-source, production-ready reference implementation of JAX-RS. Spring is a popular framework for building and running enterprise Java applications. Jersey has integrated support for Spring. This tip shows you how to take advantage of that support. It shows you how to configure Spring with Jersey and use Jersey's Spring-related features.
And by the way, if your a quiz aficianado, try the Tech Tips quiz.
