With Java 8, lambdas were introduced to the Java language; but at a bytecode level, nothing changed! We’re still utilizing the existing invokedynamic functionality added in Java 7. So does this mean we can run lambdas on Java 7?
Static code analysis is a great and cheap way to improve the quality of your code in a sustainable way. But what if you'd look at this part like it was about building future-proof unit tests - whenever you find a code bug you add something that makes sure that this type of bug never appears again - in any of your projects?

New releases of Satoris, Simz and Stenos that now replicate both execution behavior as well as contextual data across time and space.
One of the key new features introduced in Java 8 is parallel array operations. How fast is this thing, and when should I use it?
The humble log has largely been thought of as a data source that is there “just in case” there is a problem. Generally logs have only ever been accessible by the chosen few, who sit in the engine room of the system looking at at log events flying past all day long.

The application in question was a customized SharePoint app using Telerik controls. Even though performance was good under normal load conditions we found several architectural issues that most likely bring the SharePoint cluster down under...
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.
