Serverless is a relatively novel concept and cloud architectural model but has been advancing very quickly over the past 5 years. In this article, we’ve compiled a list of recent changes that are likely to shape how development teams use serverless in practice.
The move from Mercurial to Git and GitHub is imminent. With Java 16, the remaining projects – including the JDK itself – will finally move. Mercurial has been under criticism for some time now and Project Skara has presented clear results, the two corresponding JEPs have now been earmarked for Java 16. Let’s take a closer look.
Another day, another JEP. The goal of JEP 380 is to introduce support for Unix-domain socket features that are common to the major Unix platforms and Windows. This will be achieved by adding a handful of API elements. Let’s take a closer look.
Our webinar series Devs@Home brings IT experts into your (home) office. On Thursday, May 14th at 13:00 CEST, Ram Lakshmanan will be putting 7 JVM arguments (out of over 1,000 in total) into the spotlight and showing us how they can be useful when coding our applications.
Text blocks were added to Java as a preview feature in JDK 13. With JDK 14 the feature was previewed for a second time with the addition of two more escape clauses. Now, text blocks will be a full-fledged feature in JDK 15 because the community is in agreement: text blocks are ready. Let’s take a closer look.
A competitor recently published a microbenchmark comparing the performance of their stack to Quarkus. The Quarkus team feels this microbenchmark shouldn’t be taken at face value because it wasn’t making a like-to-like comparison leading to incorrect conclusions. Both of the two frameworks under comparison support reactive processing. Reactive processing enables running the business logic directly on the IO thread, which ultimately performs better in microbenchmark focusing on response time and concurrency. The microbenchmark should have been written so that both frameworks (or neither framework) obtain this benefit. Anyway, this turns out to be a very interesting topic and good information for Quarkus users, so read on.
To mark the release of Moogsoft Enterprise 8.0 we caught up with Will Cappelli, CTO EMEA and Global VP of Product Strategy at Moogsoft. We talked about the AIOps platform, the new ability to create virtual Network Operations Centers, the long-term effects of COVID-19 on the industry, and the future of AIOps.
Chief Architect of the Java Platform Group at Oracle, Mark Reinhold, has written a call for discussion proposing a new project, Project Leyden, that will address the long-term pain points of Java’s slow startup time, slow time to peak performance, and large footprint. It will do this by introducing static images to the Java platform and JDK. Let’s take a closer look.
Devs@Home – Live Webinar – April 30, 13:00 CEST: Hibernate Tips ‘n’ Tricks – 15 Tips to solve common problems
Our new webinar series Devs@Home brings IT experts into your (home) office. On Thursday, April 30th at 13:00 CEST, Thorben Janssen will show us how to use lesser known features of Hibernate to implement common features, such as generating UUIDs as primary keys, quickly.
Almost there – Garbage collection with the Z Garbage Collector is almost completely free of infamous safepoint operations. Stack processing is the only thing not really running in a concurrent phase yet. JEP 376 addresses exactly this problem and should finally put an end to unnecessary pauses. Let’s take a closer look.
Shenandoah has been part of the JDK since Java 12. When it was integrated, it was given experimental status similar to Epsilon GC and ZGC. JEP 379 proposes to change its status from experimental to production – and it will get its way, since JEP 379 is officially targeted to JDK 15. Let’s take a closer look.
In this interview, John Pocknell, Senior Market Strategist at Quest Software, covers the challenges and bottlenecks preventing data teams from success and explores what data-driven businesses need to keep in mind as data becomes more critical.
