As Re Lai explains in this article, web applications have traditionally processed requests synchronously on the server side. Asynchronous programming is generally used on the client side. However, due to the advent of social networking, mobile devices, and the Internet of Things, non-blocking request processing on the server side has taken off as an important technique for meeting ever-more-daunting performance demands.
Lai's article explores the asynchronous support provided in several popular web frameworks--Servlet, JAX-RS, Spring MVC, Vert.x, and the Play Framework--for implementing non-blocking server-side request processing. He also discusses a sample application, todosapp, to show how to implement non-blocking web applications in these frameworks. Read Lai's article

The Open Source Software Development Center at University of Belgrade has released a new version of a UML plugin for NetBeans called easyUML. This plugin was created to facilitate the use of UML tools for teaching software design, but it is also a handy tool for developers. It helps developers with commonly used features by adding an easy-to-use UI.
Pictures below show the main application window with all its components common to IDE: diagram view, palette, properties view, explorer view and project view.
