Hacking MoSKito, fixing AspectJ

Back in the MoSKito 1.2.0 Vitaliy added AspectJ annotations to MoSKito which was a great thing and provides a very easy and convenient way to integrate MoSKito into an application. After I recently added Counters I thought it would be a good idea to add an Aspect for it too. (more…)

One to count them all

There were recently a lot of work invested in making MoSKito even better and publishing it to Maven Central, which, btw. is finished! However, it's time to tell you something about the new features in 2.0.x. Today we will be talking about Counters. Well having counters seems to be such a native idea for a monitoring application, that one could wonder, why didn't we had them earlier. And in fact we did. It just wasn't THAT easy to use them as now. Back in the not-so-old 1.x days (like 3 month ago), you had to build the counters yourself. It wasn't hard to do, but still had to be done. Usually this meant that you built your own custom producer, with a lot of code and a lot of ifs and thans in your code. That's over now! (more…)

New access control in ano-site

We often want to restrict access to specific part of an application from some parties. Moreover we usually want to do it with high flexibility at runtime, don’t we? With the recent release of ano-site (version 2.4.1) we’ve added a brand new access control mechanism based on the ano-access framework. The idea was to make all parts of the application, that user interacts with, configurable from access point of view. In this article we'll make a brief overview of capabilities that are available in current version. It won't replace comprehensive developer documentation, though. Currently access can be controlled for such entities as: Page Box Navigation item Action Wizard All configuration is done traditionally through ASG (ano-site content management system) which was enriched with two new modules for access control configuration: Ano-Access Configuration and Ano-Access Data. While latter is pretty straightforward, the former requires some explanation. (more…)
