Java 8 Lambda Expression for Design Patterns – Decorator Design Pattern

The Decorator pattern (also known as Wrapper) allows behavior to be added to an individual object, either statically or dynamically, without affecting the behavior of other objects from the same class. It can be considered as an alternative to subclassing. We know that subclassing adds behavior at compile time and the change affects all instances of the original class. On ...

Functional Data Structures in Java 8 with Javaslang

Java 8’s lambdas (λ) empower us to create wonderful API’s. They incredibly increase the expressiveness of the language. Javaslang leveraged lambdas to create various new features based on functional patterns. One of them is a functional collection library that is intended to be a replacement for Java’s standard collections.             Functional Programming Before we deep-dive ...

Using Mockito without static imports with Java 8

How to simplify Mockito usage by removing static imports in Java 8 based projects. Rationale Mockito API is based on static methods aggregated (mostly) in the (BDD)Mockito class followed by extremely fluent, chained method calls. Mock creation, stubbing and call verification can be initiated with mock/spy/given/then/verify static methods: @Test public void shouldVerifyMethodExecution() { //given TacticalStation tsSpy = BDDMockito.spy(TacticalStation.class); BDDMockito.willDoNothing().given(tsSpy).fireTorpedo(2); //when ...

Java 8 Streams API: Grouping and Partitioning a Stream

This post shows how you can use the Collectors available in the Streams API to group elements of a stream with groupingBy and partition elements of a stream with partitioningBy. Consider a stream of Employee objects, each with a name, city and number of sales, as shown in the table below: +----------+------------+-----------------+ | Name | City | Number of Sales ...

Java 8 Streams: filter and predicate negation

Recently there was an interesting discussion on the use of predicate negation in the .filter method on a stream by members of the LJC mailing list, so I thought it would be worth summarising it in a blog post. The discussion was about ways to use .filter and to negate the predicate. Code for this post is available in my ...

From Arrays to Streams and Back with Java 8

Not long ago we upgraded some Eclipse plug-in projects to Java 8. And never looked back since. Among many other things, filtering, mapping, and finding elements in collections has become so much easier and more concise with lambdas and the streams API. Nothing new so far for the most of you, I guess. But many existing APIs use arrays in ...

The Danger of Subtype Polymorphism Applied to Tuples

Java 8 has lambdas and streams, but no tuples, which is a shame. This is why we have implemented tuples in jOOλ – Java 8’s missing parts. Tuples are really boring value type containers. Essentially, they’re just an enumeration of types like these: public class Tuple2<T1, T2> { public final T1 v1; public final T2 v2; public Tuple2(T1 v1, T2 ...

Wrap around design pattern in java8

Wrap around pattern is not listed in in GOF book but is very useful for problem like below: Loop construct for e.g do while/while/for loop Stopwatch around some code. Wrap checked exception with run time exception Initialization and cleanup for eg Threadpool creation/destruction or file open/close etc Adding context info to threads for eg request context info for logging or ...

Java 8 Lambda Expression for Design Patterns – Command Design Pattern

In this blog I would illustrate implementing the command pattern in functional programming style using Java 8 Lambda expressions. The intent of command pattern is to encapsulate a request as an object, thereby parameterizing clients with different requests, queue or log requests, and support corresponding operations. The command pattern is a way of writing generic code that sequences and executes ...
