Oh hey, previous employments of >= 6 months count.
School, after the first 9 years, counts. To a maximum of 4 years.
Military service (or equivalent) counts, too.
And: bingo! That adds up to exactly 25 years for me. Yay, extra vacation time!
Of course, after explaining all that, another couple paragraphs down, there's restrictions: previous employments only count to a maximum of 5 years, and school time (after being counted as a max. of 4 years) is reduced to a maximum of 2 years. So if I stay with this employer, in about 2025 I can get that extra week.
Dear Lazyweb! How do you manage keeping spring boot applications up to date?
We run an arseload of Java webapps. Our devs have taken a strong liking to spring boot, where everything including the Tomcat is uploaded as a JAR. A delight for them, but somewhat of a concern for the sysadmins who are the people first dealing with security issues.
So I've been asked to come up with recommendations to deal with this, and I haven't a clue as to how to do this other than laborious iterative checking, or automated versions thereof. Nor can I find recommendations.
Has anyone else got this problem or one like it? (Where applications are uploaded as a package that then runs.) What do you do?
