How did you first get into developing / coding? My first encounter with a computer was in 1987 during a physics class. This particular one (a Commodore C64) went immediately to my Xmas wish list. When I teared away the gift wrapping, I found the datasette broken. A datasette was a tape drive using audio cassettes for storage – without it, there were no chance to play any of the bundled games;...

As a developer, when you are building and/or designing a Java application; the first (or one of the first) question you might ask is... "What are the objects?" This seems to be a very simple question. But it is not. There probably is no single "right" answer to this question. Nevertheless, careful consideration given to this question will contribute to a good start to one's Java development...

When we started building our first Java application, at my company Amway Corp, many years ago; we learned our first lesson. In spite of all the formal training we received, in spite of all the literature at our disposal; we still needed help with our Java development on a regular basis. Where would this assistance come from? At the time, we had no in-house Java subject-matter experts. What we...

Learning Java (or any programming language) can be a great challenge. Any group of developers, learning Java, will bring with them a variety of backgrounds and experiences. In our case, our first Java project began with developers that had COBOL language experience. Our second Java project, began with developers that had RPG language experience. Even though COBOL and RPG don't "look" like Java,...

Pig from a Bird's Eyeview by M. Tim Jones, author of Pig in Action Today, we are being inundated with data. So much so, that IBM estimates that in 2012, 2.5 quintillion bytes of information are generated every day. That's a million trillion bytes of data, more data than we can fathom and considerably more than we can easily process. Online, every web-page we visit, every link we click, every...

The results of the most recently completed Java.net poll suggest that awareness of the Adopt-a-JSR effort within the Java developer community continues to increase, albeit at a perhaps modest pace. Still, growing awareness is a strong positive for any long-term effort. And the Adopt-a-JSR program is certainly intended as a long-term effort in promoting and guiding the future of Java. A total...

Your First Mikado Graph by Ola Ellnestam and Daniel Brolund, authors of The Mikado Method The Mikado Method is a structured way to make significant changes to complex code. What that means, is rather than getting caught up in the complexity of moving parts, analyzing the entire codebase and doing guess work, the Mikado Method removes the least amount of obstacles at a time in order to achieve...

Tuning Java code presents many challenges and addresses several goals. One of these goals is to make the application "run faster". Recently, our end-users were getting multiple-second response times from our web application's home page. This was unacceptable. We were asked to see what we can do to make the web application "run faster". We began by looking at the usual suspects... database access...

Setting up SBT and an SBT Build by Joshua D. Suereth and Matthew Farwell, authors of SBT in Action The simple build tool (SBT) is a tool for building Java and Scala projects. SBT aims to build well and allow users to customize endlessly, but above all, SBT strives to provide consistency of basic concepts so that, once learned, you don’t have to unlearn them as you dive deeper into the build...

Sebastiano Armeli-Battana is the author of the successful 'MVC Applies to JavaScript' eBook. We thought we'd get to know a little more about the author! 1. For someone that’s new to the JavaScript sector, can you explain why they should use MVC? I would say that a JS noob should use MVC, just because it’s widely spread pattern used across different programming languages. I think they would enjoy...
