This morning, I spent a while watching some old videos about transformation in the telephone industry. Way back before my time, the growing telephone network depended on thousands of young women working as telephone operators (boys didn't work out so well). The need for telephone operators was so great that AT&T produced a movie "Operator!" […]

Today, in less than 30 seconds or so, I was able to set up a Twilio account and send myself a text message using httpie. Another few minutes work (fewer than 5) and I had a Spring Boot application doing the same. In about the same five minutes, you can get set up with Stormpath's …

If you're building an application that requires users to upload or download files (images, documents, receipts, etc.) - file storage can be an important part of your application architecture. Deciding where you'll store …

Given the amount of time millions of Americans spend daily on the Internet, it should probably not come as a major surprise that many of them want (and demand for that matter) the best high-speed options out there. Whether one uses the Internet for pleasure, business, perhaps both, being stuck with slow Internet speed is akin to watching a movie with tons of commercials. Face it; most people are not going to like that idea. That said Internet users in search of finding high speed Internet should shop around for the best deals out there, looking for a provider able…

Ever imagined your office operating out of a plush Macquarie Place address, handling meetings like a pro and managing your team of hundred with ease and aplomb? While your business might not quite be at the stage of multi-level hires and exciting expansion it doesn't mean that you have to give up the dream of a glorious Sydney business address. The costs of running a business are nothing to be sneezed at, and if you ask any business owner they will tell you that their two biggest costs are staffing and their office space. Staff is something that you kinda…

Ideally you wouldn't have to do this in the first place. By laying quality sand and soil at the beginning before laying lawn down will hopefully avoid this process altogether. But if you want to improve your lawn and soil, then continue reading. A healthy lawn requires healthy soil, but it's often difficult with an already established lawn in place. This is where top-dressing comes in. Top dressing can help with: Uneven terrain caused during the cooler seasons by freezing and thawing, run-off, tunnelling insects and bugs, and soil settling over longer periods of time. Nutrient deficiencies caused by leaching,…

Welcome to the new Apache Shiro Stormpath integration! This new release features a servlet plugin, plus deeper support for Spring and Spring Boot. Until now, we have only had a basic Apache Shiro realm for Stormpath. While sufficient, this basic realm never granted access to the full suite of Stormpath services. Today, that changed! Servlet …

For the past decade, plus-size bikinis have been taking the world's beaches by storm! Instead of hiding their beauty from the world, women of all shapes and sizes are sporting sexy fashions, ranging from the high-waisted bikini-bottom to the trendy tankini. This movement towards body positivity is only growing as top models such as Ashley Graham and Robyn Lawley have been trendsetting plus-size styles in the fashion industry for years - so much so that the market has stopped catering so exclusively to smaller body types, and has begun to imitate them! However, this year's new craze is the most…

You can get a full list of changes included in this release from the release notes (or the Commercial Edition release notes for changes specific to the Commercial Edition). Some of the most significant changes include:
- Added a new transform-ldif tool that can be used to apply a number of transformations to data in an LDIF file. This includes the ability to scramble, replace, redact, or exclude a specified set of attributes; to replace existing values for a specified attribute; to use a sequential counter for values of a specified attribute; to add a given set of values to entries matching specified criteria; to exclude entries matching specified criteria; to rename attributes; to replace the base DN for entries in a specified subtree; and to flatten a DIT.
- Updated all classes that offer a public void close() method that doesn't throw any exceptions other than a possible IOException so that they implement the java.io.Closeable interface. This includes classes like LDAPConnection, LDAPConnectionPool, LDIFReader, LDIFWriter, and all EntrySource implementations. This allows code using these classes to take advantage of the try-with-resources facility introduced in Java SE 7.
- Added support for parsing entries that contain information about the operations processed in the server for servers that support the syntax described in draft-chu-ldap-logschema-00.
- Updated the modrate tool to make a number of improvements, including support for a number of controls, the ability to replace multiple values rather than just a single value, or the ability to perform an increment modification rather than a replace modification.
- Added a new JSONBuffer class that can be used to efficiently construct the string representation of a JSON object, and a JSONObjectReader class that can be used to read JSON objects from an input stream. Added the ability to generate formatted, multi-line string representations of JSON objects with improved human readability.
- Updated the LDIF reader to make it possible to specify the character set to use when reading data. Updated the LDIF writer to make it possible to automatically include a comment below any base64-encoded values that provides a non-base64-encoded representation (with special characters escaped) of the preceding value.
- Updated the in-memory directory server to support the LDAP no-operation control as described in draft-zeilenga-ldap-noop-12.
- Added a new base64 command-line tool that can be used to encode and decode data using the base64 format.
- Dramatically improved the robustness of the identify-references-to-missing-entries and identify-unique-attribute-conflicts tools.
- Updated the argument parser to add support for subcommands with their own distinct set of arguments.
- Added support for timestamp arguments, which can be used to specify timestamps in either the generalized time syntax (including the time zone), or in a number of formats that indicate a time in the local time zone.
- Updated the command-line tool API to provide the ability to default to interactively prompt for passwords that may be needed but not provided, and to send output to a specified file.
- Updated the rate adjustor so that generated sample rate files include a number of additional examples for common patterns like square, stairstep, sine, sawtooth, triangle, and hockey stick.
