Coursera and verifying ID with Persona

It was a total nightmare being able to verify my Id with Coursera. Coursera will not issue a certificate unless you verify your Id. It turned out that Coursera/Persona doesn't recognize my Italian Paper Id - probably because it's not in Credic Card format. And It doesn't recognize my Residence Permit in Switzerland. After a LOT of attempts it accepted my Swiss Driving License. It's totally disappointing that they don't allow you to tal to a human, all is determined by these automated procedures. If you think that the AI-dominated world will be a Paradise, think twice, an Algorythm will decide of your life. Worst of the orwellian nightmares.


I will guide you to build a simple RESTful web service using Spring Boot, and then we will generate the OpenAPI 3.0 documentation using the springdoc-openapi-maven-plugin. Step 1: Setup Spring Boot Project Create a new Spring Boot project. You can use Spring Initializr ( for easy bootstrapping of your project. For the dependencies, select: Web JPA H2 (for simplicity, we're using an in-memory database) Springdoc OpenAPI UI Step 2: Create the In src/main/resources/, add the following configuration:
Step 3: Create a simple Entity Create a Student class in your project:
import javax.persistence.Entity;
import javax.persistence.Id;

public class Student {

    private String id;
    private String name;

    // getters and setters
Step 4: Create a JPA Repository Create an interface StudentRepository that extends JpaRepository:

public interface StudentRepository extends JpaRepository<Student, String> {}
Step 5: Create a REST Controller Create a StudentController class:
import org.springframework.web.bind.annotation.*;

import java.util.List;

public class StudentController {

    private final StudentRepository repository;

    public StudentController(StudentRepository repository) {
        this.repository = repository;

    public List<Student> getAllStudents() {
        return repository.findAll();

    public Student newStudent(@RequestBody Student newStudent) {
Step 6: Generating OpenAPI 3.0 docs Add the springdoc-openapi-maven-plugin to your pom.xml:
This will generate an openapi.json file in your target directory whenever you compile your project. Now when you run your application and go to http://localhost:8080/swagger-ui.html, you should see the OpenAPI UI with your API documented. You can use the UI to send requests and see the responses. Remember to start your application before generating the documentation, because the plugin makes an actual HTTP request to the /v3/api-docs endpoint to generate the OpenAPI specification. Please be aware that as of my knowledge cut-off in September 2021, the above mentioned plugin and setup were in use. Please ensure that you're using up-to-date versions and configurations by checking the official documentation.


The openapi-generator-maven-plugin is a plugin for the Apache Maven project management tool, which is used to build and manage projects written in Java and other languages. This plugin specifically aids in the generation of API clients, server stubs, API documentation, and configuration from an OpenAPI Specification (formerly known as the Swagger Specification). An OpenAPI Specification is a standard, language-agnostic way of describing HTTP-based APIs, allowing both humans and machines to understand the capabilities of a service without having to read the source code or access documentation. Here is an example of how the openapi-generator-maven-plugin might be configured in your pom.xml:

      <version>4.3.1</version> <!-- use the latest version available -->

In the configuration above, the inputSpec tag is used to specify the location of the API specification file. The generatorName tag is used to specify the language of the generated code, in this case, Java. The configOptions tag is used to specify various options for the generated code, such as its location within the project. After this plugin is set up and the project is built (for instance, with mvn install), the API clients, server stubs, and other generated code are produced automatically based on the API specification file. This can significantly streamline the development process when working with APIs. Please note the plugin version in the example is hypothetical and might be outdated at the time of your query. You should always try to use the latest available version.

AI and Deep Learning courses

Someone deeply recommended me this Coursera course , for me it turned out to be quite disappointing, the lessons show lot of formulas with hardly any example, they don't communicate passion and interest, and they are totally in the wrong order in relation to the practical tests, so you have to take a test before the theory has been explained.
The exercises are useful, but you can find them here and you can practice in here .
Some exercises are also available here
Someone recommended me a textbook Deep Learning by Ian Goodfellow, inventor of generative networks. But it is very theoretical. There's a very nice course on YouTube from NYU and it's by Alfredo Canziani and Yann LeCun who's the guy who invented convolutional networks. There is a channel called Deep Lizard which has a course on PyTorch which is a framework to make neural networks.

AI-900 exam excellent video with questions and answers (skip first 20 minutes) official doc

This also is watchable, although lot of blablabla

Sample questions here

Fun with jhipster

Precious video to get started:

remember to set your postgres password in src/main/resources/config/application-dev.yml

Then you can start your @SpringBootApplication application, and "npm start" and http://localhost:9000 and login as admin/admin

(when running in DEV locally, it doesn't seem to be able to send emails to authenticate new users)

You can now use to populate the DB.

React menus

So far in React tutorials I have seen only tiny applications with a very simple menu system.
Menus are simply hardcoded, maybe using React Router to simplify a bit the navigation.

A real life enterprise application will be MUCH more complex than that.

I have asked ChatGPT:
"I need to build a large UI application with a complex menu system. What is the current industry standard to maintain the menu items?"

Here is the answer - which is quite decent IMHO:

There are several approaches to maintaining menu items in a large UI application with a complex menu system, and the industry standard can vary depending on the specific requirements and technologies used in the project. However, here are a few common approaches:

Data-driven menus: In this approach, the menu items are stored in a database or other data source and retrieved dynamically by the application at runtime. This allows for greater flexibility in managing the menu items, as changes can be made to the data source without having to update the application code.

Component-based menus: Another approach is to build the menu system as a set of reusable components that can be composed and reused across different parts of the application. This can make it easier to maintain the menu items, as changes can be made to the components and propagated throughout the application.

Configuration-based menus: In this approach, the menu items are defined in configuration files or other external files that can be easily modified without having to modify the application code. This can make it easier to maintain the menu items, as changes can be made without requiring a code release.

Code-based menus: Finally, some applications may choose to maintain the menu items directly in code. While this can be more difficult to maintain, it can also provide greater control and customization over the menu system.

Ultimately, the best approach will depend on the specific requirements and constraints of the project. It may be helpful to consult with experienced UI developers and architects to determine the most appropriate approach for your particular use case.

Swagger 2.0 vs OpenAPI 3.0, conversion Swagger 2.0 specifications OpenAPI 3.0 specifications Swagger Editor, it contains a menu to translate 2.0 into 3.0, but this works by sending the yaml to a remote conversion service, so it might not work in your premises. You can also install the container with swagger-editor , but make sure that external connectoins are legal in your company.

Functions vs Components in React, and useState

useState example:
import React, {useState} from 'react'

export default function Counter({initialCount}) {
    const [count, setCount] = useState(initialCount)
    return (
            <button onClick = {() => setCount(prevCount => prevCount - 1)}>-</button>
            <button onClick = {() => setCount(prevCount => prevCount + 1)}>+</button>

same thing using Component

import React, { Component } from 'react'

export default class Counter extends Component {

        this.state = {
            count: props.initialCount

    render() {
        return (
                <button onClick={() => this.changeCount(-1)}>-</button>
                <button onClick={() => this.changeCount(1)}>+</button>

    changeCount(amount) {
        this.setState(prevState => {return { count: prevState.count + amount}})

ChatGPT in ESLint (I will soon lose my job, replaced by this little bastard...)



please write a ESLint rule to flag as deprecated the usage of variable names like Button.size.NORMAL


To write an ESLint rule to flag the usage of variable names like Button.size.NORMAL, you can use the following code:


module.exports = {
  rules: {
    "no-deprecated-variable-name": {
      meta: {
        deprecated: true,
        type: "problem"
      create: function(context) {
        return {
          MemberExpression(node) {
            const { object, property } = node;
            if (object.type === "Identifier" && === "Button" &&
                property.type === "MemberExpression" && === "NORMAL") {
                message: "The use of 'Button.size.NORMAL' is deprecated. Use a different value instead."

This rule creates a new ESLint rule called no-deprecated-variable-name, which checks for the usage of Button.size.NORMAL variables. When the rule encounters this variable, it reports a warning message to the user indicating that the usage of this variable is deprecated and suggests using a different value instead.

To use this rule, you will need to add it to your .eslintrc configuration file:


  "rules": {
    "no-deprecated-variable-name": "warn"

In this configuration, the rule is set to "warn", which means it will produce a warning message but will not fail the build. You can set it to "error" to make it fail the build.

Reverse Proxy with Docker httpd container on Windows


I have followed these instructions for Windows and it works, the only change I had to do is to start the container with the  "--net=host" options, and from the container I had to configure the ReverseProxyPass to use the IP address of the host (NOT the WSL IP).

Reverse Proxy with Spring Boot 


I really like the simplicity and power of this CHARON, a Spring Boot- based Swiss knife for load balancing and request forwarding. 


Here a lot more examples  

Saturday, March 18, 2023

Reverse Proxy with nodejs
npm install http-proxy --save
node .\server.js

var http = require('http'),
    httpProxy = require('http-proxy');
// Create your proxy server and set the target in the options.

Docker container connecting to host service on Windows

docker run -d -p 80:80 --name webserver nginx
docker ps
CONTAINER ID   IMAGE     COMMAND                  CREATED          STATUS          PORTS                NAMES
2733688156aa   nginx     "/docker-entrypoint.…"   14 seconds ago   Up 13 seconds>80/tcp   webserver

on my windows host I have a Spring Boot application running at port 10090:
netstat -an | grep 10090
  TCP              LISTENING
  TCP    [::]:10090             [::]:0                 LISTENING
  TCP    [::1]:53110            [::1]:10090            TIME_WAIT
  TCP    [::1]:53123            [::1]:10090            TIME_WAIT
  TCP    [::1]:53126            [::1]:10090            TIME_WAIT

and I can also see the nginx container
netstat -an | grep 80
  TCP                 LISTENING
  TCP    [::]:80                [::]:0                 LISTENING
  TCP    [::1]:80               [::]:0                 LISTENING

If in browser you type "localhost" you should get nginx welcome page (at port 80, default)

Now log into container:
docker exec -it webserver sh

from the container you can connect to
curl host.docker.internal
curl host.docker.internal:10090
they both work, because they "resolve to the internal IP address used by the host"
On my Windows host, if I type "ipconfig" I see that I have
Ethernet adapter vEthernet (WSL):
Ethernet adapter Ethernet:
If I try:
they both work on both host and container, but the first is a lot more responsive.
This proves that from container you can access a service running on host.


NB: besides host.docker.internal , also can be used, but they have different values (which?)

Intellij Java remote debug with SSH tunnel

This is the simplest explanation how to do it: (it is a bit confusing, as is uses localhost for both remote and local)
and which clearly runs the ssh command locally forwarding to remote and highlights the role of -N parameter)
also worth reading: this is about PHP debugging

SSH tunneling explained visually

this command does the trick:
ssh -f -L -N
