Trainee Experience @1&1 Internet Development

Trainee Experience @1&1 Internet Development

This article is an interview of our Product Management Trainee from the RAIN Development Romania department. Brunna is from Brazil; she is working in Romania as a trainee for a period of six months. She is sharing insights into the common struggles of a traineeship abroad.

What is like being a trainee in 1&1 Internet Development?

This is a unique experience for me. First of all because the culture is totally different from mine. When I arrived in 1&1 Internet Development I was cuddled by everyone, both the HR from the company and my colleagues from RAIN project gave me all the support I needed. Brazilian people are known for being good hosts and if I have to compare them with the Romanian ones I’ll have some trouble. Also, if you’re going to visit a Romanian house, you’d better be hungry! 🙂

Java User Group edition #9 at 1&1 Internet Development

JUG edition 9

JUG edition #9 @ 1&1 Internet

This is a guest post written by Eugen Stan, BJUG member.

BJUG #10 is closing in fast. In less than two weeks we meet again, and get another chance to find out new stuff about new and exciting technologies, but more important about each other. That is the reason why we, Andrei and Mihai, started JUG Bucharest almost one year ago and that is the reason why I constantly remind people to share ideas and get to know each other better.

I’m a strong believer that people drive things forward, and that technologies, frameworks and programming languages are just tools.

JUG 10 looks popular, but it still has some catching up to do before it reaches the same popularity as JUG #9, which managed to fill the 100 places conference room from the 10th floor at 1&1 Internet Development.

A Team That Grows With Its Projects

Today’s “Server and WebHosting Applications” team started as “Server Platforms Development” some time ago, but I will tell the story since June 2011, when I became part of it. As any successful entity, the team had to change over time, to adapt both in structure and focus. During my time here its spirit seems to have remained a constant, fascinating mixture of very different personalities and skills, somehow like the American “melting pot” theory.

When I first arrived in 1&1 within the server platforms, I found a very diverse group of

Why I’d choose Apache Wicket as a web application framework- part 4

Framework minus points
To be fair I have to say something about what I think are the current weakness of the framework:
Remember that Wicket has been developed for state-full applications. But there are a number of reasons why you’d want to opt for a stateless application.
Because if your application is stateless it means that requests can be processed by any of the web servers in your cluster, because all the parameters a page needs to reproduce a certain state are provided in the url. In a state-full application you either

Why I’d choose Apache Wicket as a web application framework- part 3

About Wicket and JS
Even from the beginning Wicket had Ajax capabilities built-in that could be called from Java. This is done by simply adding the Java component to an ajax context object, the AjaxRequestTarget. Of course you can invoke any JavaScript code before or after the Ajax call.
Currently Wicket uses its own JS engine for doing AJAX, but it integrates alongside other JS frameworks like JQuery nicely(there is a little thing to consider mentioned later though). Wicket does not generate any

Why I’d choose Apache Wicket as a web application framework- part 2

Component based framework with good concepts that appeals to developers
But the best thing for me is that Wicket really feels like a true Object Oriented web framework. All your components, pages, panels are Java objects (with a .html). Every web component extends a base Component class and can in turn be extended. Another way of creating components in Wicket is through composition of other web components inside a Panel. You can pack your components inside a jar file and bring them into another project and ideally a common library of components in your organisation might emerge. A place with generic open source components is the Wicket Stuff project or

Why I’d choose Apache Wicket as a web application framework

In a short description Apache Wicket is a good state-full component based framework which cultivates a sound architecture that appeals to Java developers. This is just going to be a general summary of the points of why you might want to have a look at the framework.
Let’s begin:
Clean separation of Java code from HTML
One of the best and most talked about Wicket feature is of course the clear separation of HTML from Java code.
No more Java code into HTML (yes that’s you JSP). In Wicket we have pages composed of panels with components and for every page/panel we get two files: a .java file and one .html file which sit next to each other in a java package structure (this could be changed and have separate locations for html and java files) and
