An Introduction to Hollow JARs

Dzone - 2 hours 58 min ago

I have written in the past about the difference between an application server and an UberJAR. The short version of that story is that an application server is an environment that hosts multiple Java EE applications side by side, while an UberJAR is a self-contained executable JAR file that launches and hosts a single application.

Dzone - 4 hours 58 min ago

Less than a week into 2018 and security researchers at the Project Zero team at Google were announcing the discovery of security vulnerabilities, Spectre and Meltdown. Several international research teams discovered the flaws over the last six months but it took a while for the news to go public. I spoke to Jason McNew, Founder and CEO of Stronghold Cybersecurity, and Kayne McGladrey, IEEE Member, director of information security services at Integral Partners to find out more.
