Let’s Stream a Map in Java 8 with jOOλ

jool-logo

I wanted to find an easy way to stream a Map in Java 8. Guess what? There isn’t! What I would’ve expected for convenience is the following method:                   public interface Map<K, V> { default Stream<Entry<K, V>> stream() { return entrySet().stream(); } } But there’s no such method. There are probably a ...

Stop Claiming that you’re Using a Schemaless Database

software-development-2-logo

One of MongoDB’s arguments when evangelising MongoDB is the fact that MongoDB is a “schemaless” database: Why Schemaless? MongoDB is a JSON-style data store. The documents stored in the database can have varying sets of fields, with different types for each field.     And that’s true. But it doesn’t mean that there is no schema. There are in fact ...

The dreaded DefaultAbstractHelperImpl

java-logo

A while ago, we have published this fun game we like to call Spring API Bingo. It is a tribute and flattery to Spring’s immense creativeness when forming meaningful class names like FactoryAdvisorAdapterHandlerLoader ContainerPreTranslatorInfoDisposable BeanFactoryDestinationResolver LocalPersistenceManagerFactoryBean Two of the above classes actually exist. Can you spot them? If no, play Spring API Bingo! Clearly, the Spring API suffers from having… ...

Don’t Miss out on Writing Java 8 SQL One-Liners with jOOλ or jOOQ

jooq-2-logo

More and more people are catching up with the latest update to our platform by adopting functional programming also for their businesses. At Data Geekery, we’re using Java 8 for our jOOQ integration tests, as using the new Streams API with lambda expressions makes generating ad-hoc test data so much easier. However, we don’t feel that the JDK offers as ...

The Caveats of Dual-Licensing

software-development-2-logo

We’ve been in business for more than one year now with our dual-licensing strategy for jOOQ. While this strategy has worked very well for us, it has also been a bit of a challenge for some of our customers. Today, we’re going to show you what caveats of dual-licensing we’ve run into. Our dual-licensing strategy For those of you not ...

Using Your RDBMS for Messaging is Totally OK

software-development-2-logo

Controversial database topics are a guaranteed success on reddit, because everyone has an opinion on those topics. More importantly, many people have a dogmatic opinion, which always triggers more debate than pragmatism. So, recently, I posted a link to an older article titled The Database As Queue Anti-Pattern by Mike Hadlow, and it got decent results on /r/programming: Mike’s post ...

Asynchronous SQL Execution with jOOQ and Java 8’s CompletableFuture

jooq-2-logo

Reactive programming is the new buzzword, which essentially just means asynchronous programming or messaging. Fact is that functional syntax greatly helps with structuring asynchronous execution chains, and today, we’ll see how we can do this in Java 8 using jOOQ and the new CompletableFuture API. In fact, things are quite simple:       // Initiate an asynchronous call chain ...

How Nashorn Impacts API Evolution on a New Level

java-logo

Following our previous article about how to use jOOQ with Java 8 and Nashorn, one of our users discovered a flaw in using the jOOQ API as discussed here on the user group. In essence, the flaw can be summarised like so:               Java code package org.jooq.nashorn.test; public class API { public static void ...

This is the Final Discussion!

java-logo

Pun intended… Let’s discuss Java final. Recently, our popular blog post “10 Subtle Best Practices when Coding Java” had a significant revival and a new set of comments as it was summarised and linked from JavaWorld. In particular, the JavaWorld editors challenged our opinion about the Java keyword “final“:         More controversially, Eder takes on the question ...
