The times when Java was available on almost every desktop are long gone but you can still distribute your desktop applications written in Java in a user friendly way. Since the release of OpenJDK and OpenJFX 9 we can benefit from the JVMs modularization efforts and easily build executables with a bundled JVM trimmed to the needs of our application. In this article we will show you how we ported our small desktop app called PDF Decorator initially to OpenJDK 11 and used tools like jlink and jpackage to start distributing our app without requiring any third party software on our clients machines.

Problem: we want queries to our entities to eagerly fetch only the fields that we need in the given context (for example to show in a specific UI data table). Requirement: our solution must be able to accept dynamic filter compositions. Possible solutions: Named Entity Graphs from the JPA standard or Projections mechanism from Spring Data. Lets research them!

In the last article we described why the division of responsibilities between ERP-MES systems from the IEC/ISO-62264 standard cannot be directly applied to small and medium enterprises. Now we’ll show you how we devised our own integration scheme for systems used in SME based on the conclusions from the previous analysis.

At the beginning of the year we began preparations to design our own IT system for industrial production management targeted towards small and medium-sized enterprises. As part of this stage we analyzed standards related to such solutions. Our attention has been particularly caught by IEC/ISO-62264 (based on ISA-95), which attempts to construct an unified model of concepts, data structures and activities that occur at the interface between Enterprise Resource Planning systems and Manufacturing Execution Systems. Now came the time to share with you our insights and design sketches. This is our first article from a hole series that show you our efforts aimed at transferring the standards adopted for large ERP and MES systems to the SME scale of things.
