Efficient multiple-stream concatenation in Java


Let me share a few trends that I've noticed when dealing with streams and stream concatenation in general, having written a fair amount of code in Java 8 by now. I want to combine the elements of multiple Stream instances into a single Stream. What's the best way to do this? This article compares a few different solutions. Stream.concat(a, b). The JDK provides Stream.concat(a, b) for concatenating two streams. void exampleConcatTwo () {. Stream a = Stream.

Oracle’s Java API Suit Against Google – Five Years Later

Feld Thoughts

Oracle sued Google over a series of Java-related patents they got when they acquired Sun. My favorite line from the whole thing was James Gosling’s (who was one of the authors of one of the original patents and a key creator of Java) when he wrote The s**t finally hits the fan. ” Oracle also got copyrights to the Java APIs. Remember, Java was theoretically Open Source, but like so many things in our world when lawyers get involved “it’s complicated.”

Flash is the New Client-Side Java

Andrew Payne

Remember Sun’s vision for Java: client-side applets, downloaded on the fly, running in/alongside the browser? After nearly 15 years, client-side Java never really hit critical mass. Then, Adobe started adding Java-like features, notably ActionScript 3 , a fairly efficient virtual machine , and a decent set of libraries. Just like Java, except with >98% market adoption.

Mangling JSON numbers


Theoretically we can send it from a Java server to a JavaScript client via JSON and both sides see exactly the same number. To convince ourselves that this number is safe, we examine various representations of this number in Java and JavaScript: // In Java long x = 1L. x.toString() is similar in spirit to x.toExponential() and Double.toString(double) from Java. POST endpoints that deserialize a client-provided JSON string like {"x":number} into a Java object.

Have We Reached The Software Patent Tipping Point?

Feld Thoughts

A few weeks ago, Oracle sued Google over a series of Java-related patents they got when they acquired Sun. We’ve shifted into a new zone in the world of software patent stupidity. Last week, Paul Allen sued 11 major software companies , including Google, over four patents that were granted to his now defunct Interval Research think tank. Much of the early commentary has already been said. And, from what I’ve read, it’s not very generous to either Oracle or Paul Allen.

How Google makes GMail mobile fast

Sophia Perl of Wisdom

It seemed that java script is a thorn in Souders’ side when it comes to performance. He recommends that java script be put at the bottom of the HTML page. When java script is downloading, rendering of the page is blocked (aka stopped). This is a bad user experience especially if java script is not helping paint the picture of the web page. For GMail mobile, in the background, they download the java script, but wrap it in comment tags.
