Aggregating DWR interface scripts

My company has a website and running Yslow on it reported that the no of HTTP requests were in the range of 120-130. Accessing the site from UK was pretty slow. Now we used CSS sprites to reduce the no of css images and we were already using JS and CSS aggregation. There were still 10-12 DWR interface scripts and as browser stops rendering while its downloading and rendering js files. I was looking for a solution for aggregate DWR generated interfaces. I searched a lot and than landed onto JAWR. As we are using build time aggregation for static JS I am using JAWR only for generated interface JS. Here are the things I did.

Add jawr lib to WEB-INF/classes
==============================web.xml============================
    <servlet>
        <servlet-name>JawrServlet</servlet-name>
        <servlet-class>net.jawr.web.servlet.JawrServlet</servlet-class>
        <init-param>
            <param-name>configLocation</param-name>
            <param-value>/jawr.properties</param-value>
        </init-param>
        <init-param>
            <param-name>mapping</param-name>
            <param-value>/jawrBundle/</param-value>
        </init-param>
        <load-on-startup>2</load-on-startup>
    </servlet>
    <servlet-mapping>
        <servlet-name>JawrServlet</servlet-name>
        <url-pattern>/jawrBundle/*</url-pattern>
    </servlet-mapping>   

Note JAWR servlet should start after DWR servlet   
=====================jawr.properties===============================

# Common properties
jawr.debug.on=false
jawr.gzip.on=true
jawr.gzip.ie6.on=false
jawr.charset.name=UTF-8
jawr.js.bundle.agg_dwr.id=/jawrBundle/agg_dwr.js
jawr.js.bundle.agg_dwr.mappings=dwr:_**
#dont forget the below property.
#I forgot it and struggled for 6 hours after reading JAWR code to figure this out
jawr.dwr.mapping=/dwr/
======================JSP changes==============================
<%@ taglib prefix="jwr" uri="http://jawr.net/tags" %>
<jwr:script src="/jawrBundle/agg_dwr.js"/>
====================================================

  1. This aggregation module exhibit effective Java programmers how to impact with DWR to create coercive AJAX applications. It starts with a tutorial on DWR’s important features and functions. Then it covers surround up the utilization environment.

RabbitMQ java clients for beginners

Here is a sample of a consumer and producer example for RabbitMQ. The steps are

Logging to Graphite monitoring tool from java

We use Graphite as a tool for monitoring some stats and watch trends. A requirement is to monitor impact of new releases as build is deployed to app nodes to see if things like
1) Has the memcache usage increased.
2) Has the no of Java exceptions went up.
3) Is the app using more tomcat threads.
Here is a screenshot

We changed the installer to log a deploy event when a new build is deployed. I wrote a simple spring bean to log graphite events using java. Logging to graphite is easy, all you need to do is open a socket and send lines of events.
import org.slf4j.Logger;import org.slf4j.LoggerFactory; import java.io.OutputStreamWriter; import java.io.Writer; import java.net.Socket; import java.util.HashMap; import java.util.Map; public class GraphiteLogger { private static final Logger logger = LoggerFactory.getLogger(GraphiteLogger.class); private String graphiteHost; private int graphitePort; public String getGraphiteHost() { return graphiteHost; } public void setGraphite…

What a rocky start to labor day weekend

Woke up by earthquake at 7:00 AM in morning and then couldn't get to sleep. I took a bath, made my tea and started checking emails and saw that after last night deployment three storage node out of 100s of nodes were running into Full GC. What was special about the 3 nodes was that each one was in a different Data centre but it was named same app02.  This got me curious I asked the node to be taken out of rotation and take a heap dump.  Yesterday night a new release has happened and I had upgraded spymemcached library version as new relic now natively supports instrumentation on it so it was a suspect. And the hunch was a bullseye, the heap dump clearly showed it taking 1.3G and full GCs were taking 6 sec but not claiming anything.



I have a quartz job in each jvm that takes a thread dump every 5 minutes and saves last 300 of them, checking few of them quickly showed a common thread among all 3 data centres. It seems there was a long running job that was trying to replicate pending…
