Java Web Weekly, Issue 115 – Java网络周刊》第115期

最后修改: 2016年 3月 10日


At the very beginning of last year, I decided to track my reading habits and share the best stuff here, on Baeldung. Haven’t missed a review since.


Here we go…


1. Spring and Java


>> Core container refinements in Spring Framework 4.3 []

It’s always nice when a framework matures and gets easier to work with – and Spring is doing just that with the upcoming 4.3.


>> Enjoying Java and Being More Productive with IntelliJ IDEA []

A nice guide to what makes IntelliJ a good choice as your default IDE. Obviously promotional in nature, but a solid writeup nevertheless.


>> JUnit 5 Alpha Simplifies Unit Testing []

Short the to the point look at what’s happening with the new JUnit alpha.

简短地介绍一下新的JUnit alpha的情况。

>> Java A’s new Local-Variable Type Inference []

If this gets implemented in Java 10, it will be a beautiful thing.

如果这一点在Java 10中得到实现,那将是一件美好的事情。

It also shows a degree of openness to community feedback that is rare for a language as mature and as well established as Java is 20 years in.


>> Using the TestNG ITestContext to create smarter REST Assured tests []

Quick and highly practical writeup on using rest-assured to test an API and how to orchestrate the interaction with the Authorization Server in OAuth2.


Also worth reading:


Webinars and presentations:


Time to upgrade:


2. Technical


>> Alternative Services []

The web never stops moving forward, and the standardization of these building blocks is really critical for this forward movement.


If you’re keeping an eye on this part of the ecosystem, definitely have a quick read.


Also worth reading:


3. Musings


>> We Hire the Best, Just Like Everyone Else []

Some against the grain advice on actually keeping an open mind when hiring someone and doing a good job at this notoriously difficult thing.


>> Chasing Developer Productivity Metrics []

Putting a hard number of developer productivity is the white whale of our industry, and so a piece that manages to stay away from rehashing the well known and the obvious is a good read.


But the reason this one was perhaps more interesting to me is that more and more, I’m starting to build out a team around Baeldung, so the question of “productivity” isn’t just theory any more.

但是,这个问题对我来说也许更有意思,因为越来越多的人开始围绕着Baeldung建立起一个团队,所以 “生产力 “的问题不再只是理论。

>> It’s Not Just Standing Up: Patterns for Daily Standup Meetings []

I don’t usually include Agile writeups here because they’re usually fluff. This one though may be worth the read (although I didn’t get through all of it).

我通常不把Agile writeups放在这里,因为它们通常都是浮云。不过这篇可能值得一读(虽然我没有读完)。

>> A brief overview of hack.summit() 2016 (part 1) []

Some really interesting talks here.


I’m still going through some and they’re a little bit meta, but there are some cool takeaways locked in these talks.


Also worth reading:


4. Comics


And my favorite Dilberts of the week:


>> There’s no kill switch on awesome []

>> I played that on XBox []

>> A pantless weasel []
