Java Annotations Are a Big Mistake

Annotations were introduced in Java 5, and we all got excited. Such a great instrument to make code shorter! No more Hibernate/Spring XML configuration files! Just annotations, right there in the code where we need them. No more marker interfaces, just a runtime-retained reflection-discoverable annotation! I was excited too. Moreover, I’ve made a few open source libraries which use annotations ...

Using Named Database Locks

In a beginner’s guide to concurrency, I mentioned advisory locks. These are not the usual table locks – they are table-agnostic, database-specific way to obtain a named lock from your application. Basically, you use your database instance for centralized application-level locking. What could it be used for? If you want to have serial operations, this is a rather simple way ...

Reduce Production Bugs with Continuous Integration

Continuous integration is so often preached from the pulpit of careful software craftsmanship that you might think it’s nothing more than KoolAidtm. However, continuous integration is neither transitory nor hollow; it’s a valuable and scientifically verifiable means of reducing production bugs. Today, let’s step through how CI does that.

How to Get an Interview at (Almost) Any Company
