TitleLink and Shortlink Documentation

The Joomla! TitleLink and Shortlink extension documentation can be found at http://gesellix.github.io/titlelink/ and http://gesellix.github.io/shortlink/. Cleaning my homepage also meant cleaning up content, so I prefer not to have several copies of the same document in different places. Old links probably still refer to this homepage, so please update your links to use the official location. Thanks! Due to changed focus away from Joomla, but towards Node.js, AngularJS and other tools of that environment, i’ve been quite inactive on the Joomla extensions.

Modularization of the Fest Assertions library

The Fest Assertions library, a fluent Java API for writing assertions in your test or production code, is quite popular in my development team. Because of it's clean and fluent interface, it was no question to me when trying to use it in an Android project. But due to it's dependency on java.awt classes and due to Android's missing support for them, I currently cannot use it for writing tests in my Android codebase.

Liebe Deutsche Bahn AG

Liebe Deutsche Bahn AG, seit Jahren bin ich regelmäßiger Nutzer Ihrer Infrastruktur. Sei es anfangs für regelmäßige Wochenend-Pendelei, später die S-Bahn in Berlin und in letzter Zeit mehr oder weniger regelmäßige Fahrten zwischen Berlin und Westerwald. Bahnfahrten sind für mich eine entspannte Möglichkeit Entfernungen zu überbrücken, ohne großartige Checkins und Wartezeiten auf Gepäckbänder über mich ergehen zu lassen. Trotz meiner Liebe zum Autofahren sehe ich die Bahn auch als vorteilhaft an, wenn es um Treibstoffkosten, Autoversicherung und KFZ-Steuer geht.

Java SSL Configuration

Working with external interfaces often needs a secured connection, mostly implemented using SSL. I recently ran into some fresh setup of two hosts, sending each other SOAP requests via HTTPS. Being a Java developer at my office, I got some error messages quite unknown to me, but after some reading of blogs and with other informational sources the problems had been fixed. Understanding the concept behind SSL and how the SSL handshake works are crucial when trying to understand error messages and to know where to fix them.
