The complexity of companies’ software solutions are increasing, with developers having less and less insight into all the corners of an application. Even simple applications these days utilize a raft of tools, open-source libraries and frameworks that aid in rapid building. The disadvantage of this high velocity development, though, is the loss of visibility into what is actually happening behind...

Over the past few years we've encountered many companies that have started out on the path of rolling their own logging solution. Rolling your own solution contains a number of hidden costs and time sucks. As these systems become more complex, more time is required by the engineers who built them in order to maintain and manage these. We’ve also noticed that, overtime, these systems start off...
Lucene 4.8 is moving to Java 7, which will force many downstream projects (projects that rely on Lucene, like Hibernate Search) to consider migrating to Java 7 themselves, in some cases updating from Java 5 or earlier. While it's probably unwise to consider jumping all the way to Java 8, it's worth considering under what conditions a Java 8 plunge would be ideal for upstream libraries.
