One of the principle rules of Continuous Integration (and Continuous Delivery) is that you should never knowingly commit code that will break the build. When you practice test-driven development this is easy: you write a failing test (or, more precisely, a failing "executable specification"), make it pass, and then refactor as required. You only commit your code once you have refactored and ran...

In the most recently completed Java.net poll, the community selected Jenkins as its preferred Continuous Integration (CI) server. This was the third in a series of Java.net polls related to Java tools. A total of 260 votes were cast in the poll. The exact question and results were: Which Continuous Integration (CI) server do you prefer? 7% (17 votes) - Bamboo 1% (2 votes) - Continuum 2% (6...

The past three Java.net polls have been related to Java tools. We've run two polls related to Integrated Development Environments (IDEs), and our current poll asks Which Continuous Integration (CI) server do you prefer? That poll will be ending on Friday. After that, we'll run one more poll related to Java tools. What class of tool would you like that poll to be about? This is your last chance (...

In the last-completed Java.net poll, the Java/JVM developer community indicated that, despite rumors that "the desktop" is disappearing into "the cloud," when it comes to hammering out code they prefer to work using a desktop-based Integrated Development Environment (IDE), and hope that the mid-term future evolution of IDEs is desktop-centric. The desktop may be becoming more specialized, used...

You may notice that our current Java.net poll and our last Java.net poll are both related to Java IDEs. The current poll ends this Friday, February 21, and I'd like the next several polls to remain on the topic of Java tools. So, here's your opportunity to help! We've already covered IDEs, so now it's time to move into different categories of tools. For example, there could be a poll about...

The columnar storage is good, especially when there are lots of tabular fields (this is quite common). In querying, the data to traverse is far less than that on the row storage. Less data to traverse brings less I/O workloads and higher query speed. However, the Hadoop application consumes most time on the hard disk I/O without columnar storage. Both Hive and Impala support columnar storage, but...

JDK 8 introduced a lot of new features and improvements in the platform from Lamda expressions, Stream collection types, Functional interfaces, Type annotations, Nashorn etc. Guava library from Google provided some support for functional programming idioms prior to JDK 8. I have been using Guava for some of my projects. So here is a small write up on how new functionality added in JDK 8 makes it...
