The road has been long - two years, seven months and eighteen days, to be precise - but Java 8 is finally a working reality. In this interview, Georges Saab, Vice President of Software Development in the Java Platform Group at Oracle, gives us an insider account of the “conservative” development of what’s been declared “the most significant release of Java in the past 10 years”.
By tracing transactions as they traverse your stack, you can identify root cause and solve the issue. How to find that trace is the big question. Here I'll show you how to insert a unique identifier to trace transactions across multiple tiers and how you can view these events in one uber interface. Read on to learn how:...
Did you know that on an average app there are about 4000 as many Exception objects thrown than log messages written? We analyzed this on an enterprise application and highlight the performance and functional problems that come with having too many Exceptions that nobody is actually aware off.
The Biggest Singularity Event in Java
Yoav Landmand, CTO of Jfrog - the creators of open source repository manager Artifactory and software distribution platform Bintray - shares his expert analysis of Java 8, and how he thinks the next generation of software from Oracle will impact the Javasphere as a whole.
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...
The Enterprise Java Newscast, hosted by Kito D. Mann, Ian Hlavats, and Daniel Hinojosa, is a monthly podcast that covers the latest headlines in the world of Enterprise Java development.
One of the things that received a boost in the Java 8 release is the ForkJoin framework, used to ease parallelization of recursive computations. What techniques make ForkJoin performant? Did Java 8 improved the performance?
We met with Régis Latawiec, COO of embedded systems solutions providers IS2T, at embedded worldthis spring to discuss, among other things, the evolution of embedded technology, why Java was their language of choice for in-device software solutions, and what the company envisions for the future of the IoT.
When you annotate an attribute with @Resource, it will be the container responsible of injecting the requested resource. The typical example is used with DataSource class. That's great and you can use it with JMS as well, but what's happening to NoSQL databases, would not it be perfect to do something similar for them? Read how to do it with Apache TomEE.
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.
