I’m afraid this post will get a tad longer - if for nothing else then for the code and output listings. So let’s state what we are to achieve here: Implementing custom HTTP message converters for custom content type and class.Avoiding default converters altogether or adding them at the end of the converter list to … Continue reading Spring Boot and HTTP message converters – no Jackson, no defaults

One Git config for all company projects

If you work with Git on multiple computers for multiple parties (yourself, company, another company) you’ve probably committed something with the wrong name/email already.

My Battle with Node, Npm, Webpack and its Progress plugin

It was our fault all the time, but we didn’t know how and why and we wanted to know. We wanted to know why the build of our Angular 6 application sometimes worked and sometimes didn’t when we used the same Node+Npm versions every time. I suspected the environment differences, PATH perhaps, but the punch … Continue reading My Battle with Node, Npm, Webpack and its Progress plugin
