“Kirk told me I could buy beer at the petrol station,” was the first sentence I heard out
of Ben Evans’ mouth. He had come to Crete for an Open Spaces Java conference. I
explained that I usually bought petrol at the petrol station, but that there was a shop
around the corner that sold beer. Ben looked disappointed. I had lived on this Greek
island for five years and had never thought of trying to buy beer at the local BP.
I felt a bit like this while reading this book. I consider myself a Java fundi. I have
spent the past 15 years programming...
Scala in Depth is a unique new book designed to help you integrate Scala effectively into your development process. By presenting the emerging best practices and designs from the Scala community, it guides you through dozens of powerful techniques example by example.
About the Book
Scala is a powerful JVM language that blends the functional and OO programming models. You'll have no trouble getting introductions to Scala in books or online, but it's hard to find great examples and insights from experienced practitioners. You'll find them in Scala in Depth....
If you've seen how dozens of lines of Java or Ruby can dissolve into just a few lines of Clojure, you'll know why the authors of this book call it a "joyful language." Clojure is a dialect of Lisp that runs on the JVM. It combines the nice features of a scripting language with the powerful features of a production environment—features like persistent data structures and clean multithreading that you'll need for industrial-strength application development.
Embedded software grows more and more rapidly and complicatedly. This paper proposes a new structure and a comprehensible process to develop embedded software in JNI, a new programming framework allowing Java code running in a JVM to call or be called by native application and library written in C/C++. Therefore, programmer can develop application that benefit the simplicity and reusability features of Java and can always reuse legacy code for controlling device effectively written in C/C++ for embedded applications. ...
Griffon in Action is a comprehensive tutorial written for Java developers who want a more productive approach to UI development. After a quick Groovy tutorial, you'll immediately dive into Griffon and start building examples that explore its high productivity approach to Swing development.
The Developer exam is challenging. There are a lot of complex design issues to consider, and a host of advanced Java technologies to understand and implement correctly. The exam assessors work under very strict guidelines. You can create the most brilliant application ever to grace a JVM, but if you don’t cross your t’s and dot your i’s the assessors have no choice but to deduct crucial (and sometimes substantial) points from your project.
Oracle8i introduced the use of Java as a procedural language with a Java Virtual
Machine (JVM) in the database (originally called JServer). JVM includes support for
Java stored procedures, methods, triggers, Enterprise JavaBeans™ (EJBs), CORBA,
and HTTP. The Accelerator is used for project generation, translation, and compila-
tion, and can also be used to deploy/install shared libraries.
The inclusion of Java within the Oracle database allows Java developers to leverage
their skills as Oracle application developers.
