The recent results from the 9th annual global developer productivity report gives us insights to the current state of Java in 2021. Over 850 Java developers responded to questions about their experiences, preferred tools and technologies, and what issues they currently face.
Java in 2020 is overgrown with new features and was released twice right on schedule, despite the global turmoil. Java will remain one of the main platforms for developing enterprise applications (that is, corporate applications used by large companies to make money.
Using the simple Java application Buggy App, you can simulate various performance problems in your environment. This article will examine some use cases, how to download the application, and what common performance problems you can simulate through Buggy App.
Join Mike Milinkovic, Executive Director of the Eclipse Foundation, as he shares his thoughts about the future of open source in 2021 and beyond. He covers cloud native Java and Jakarta EE, IoT and edge computing, and automotive software. It looks set to be another big year for open source…
What are the Garbage Collection (GC) log, Thread Dump, and Heap Dump in the Java Virtual Machine (JVM)? In this article let us try to understand these 3 critical artifacts, where to use them, how does it look, how to capture them, how to analyze them and their differences.
There are a handful of similarities between the CLR and JVM – both are high performance software run times, both include methods for garbage collection, code-level security and rich frameworks and open source libraries. But there are also some very stark differences.
Jakarta EE 9 has been published. We spoke with Mike Milinkovich, Executive Director of the Eclipse Foundation, about what this milestone means for the Java world: What is the next step for enterprise Java and what role does open source software play in this?
Java security is an important topic for all businesses that use Java applications. Java Champion Simon Ritter takes a deep dive into the JDK and the potential shortcomings of not keeping your applications up to date, as well as why it’s essential to know the difference between critical patch updates (CPUs) and patch set updates (PSUs).
ActiveJ is a radically new development platform for creating diverse modern applications of any complexity with a lightweight and natively scalable async architecture that squeezes the last bits of performance from your hardware. Let’s overview the core components of the framework!
Now that JavaFX 15 has been released, let’s take a look at some of the newest features. We spoke with Java Champion and Gluon co-founder Johan Vos to learn all about the latest JavaFX release, what to look forward to in JavaFX 16, and why JavaFX has a competitive edge.
Java 15’s GA release is finally here. 14 JEPs (Spoiler alert: Nashorn is out!) are part of the new JDK. Among other things, text blocks have moved beyond the experimental stage and the Shenandoah garbage collector is now a full member of the JDK. Let’s take a closer look at the JEPs of this release.
Unit type-safety, or lack thereof, can have real consequences, sometimes disastrous ones. This article briefly demonstrates how the Manifold framework’s extension and science libraries can be applied toward a general solution using type-safe units and quantities.
JobRunr is an open source library that makes it easy to perform background processing on the JVM, making use of persistent storage like an RDBMS or a NoSQL database. This tutorial will show you how to test against 12 different JVMs using TestContainers.
Not all microservices performance issues are equal: some are easy to fix, while others require more effort. Check out eight common issues you may encounter. Now is the time to put in place a robust strategy to solve problems today and mitigate them in the future.
