Distributed transactions with multiple databases, Spring Boot, Spring Data JPA and Atomikos

August 19th, 2014

Another interesting blog post showing off Atomikos with Spring Boot and JPA.

As soon as we get some spare time (sigh) we’re hoping to look a bit more into Spring Boot, BTW.

Spring JTA multiple resource transactions in Tomcat with Atomikos example

August 19th, 2014

We found this nice tutorial by Gonçalo Marques covering basic two-phase commit with Spring, Tomcat and Atomikos.

Enjoy!

PS with our latest Tomcat integration - available to commercial subscribers - things are even easier :-)

The further decline of the app server

Interesting independent survey: 68% uses a web container like Tomcat or Jetty.

Why we should dump JEE

June 25th, 2014

Again, some solid 3rd party confirmation that we were right about JEE without application server

Suffice it to say: we’re one of the first ones to modularise and open up the APIs of JEE…

Summer holidays: production support only

June 25th, 2014

As usual, we will be closed a few weeks during the Summer holidays 2014. This means that we will only offer production support (no other services) during the following weeks:

  • July 7-14 (inclusive)
  • August 18-29 (inclusive)

Thanks for your understanding!

Can you help us transition to mainstream?

June 22nd, 2014

We want to ask for your help and/or feedback on the following matter…

We’re a small company with no VC money to burn so we need a sustainable customer base and dito commercial offerings.

During the last year or so, we’ve been trying to transform towards a mainstream customer base (as opposed to fewer, bigger but select customers). For this, we needed a more modest and flexible pricing scheme as well as some more individualised service offerings. The numerous prospects we’ve talked to have driven us towards the following formula.

So here is the question: what feedback are you willing to share with us? Is there anything important we’ve missed that could convince your company to purchase from us (and thereby make our continued open source offerings possible)?

If you have anything you want to share, please feel free to comment on this post… [UPDATE: if you have no login then feel free to email us at info at atomikos dot com]

Thank you!

Customer release 3.9.6 now available

Enter the cloud economy

June 17th, 2014

Today is a big day for us: we’ve published our new pricing model. It’s simple, clear, and most of all cloud-ready because there is hardly any counting of CPUs or cores. Since nobody can know these things in a cloud, it’s no use trying to count anyway.

Of course this didn’t just fall out of the sky: we’ve spent most of the previous year talking to prospects and customers to find out what works for them and what doesn’t. The result, we think, is worth blogging about. We can’t wait to learn what you think…

Enjoy!

PS thanks to all those customers and prospects who have given us useful feedback to make this possible!!!
