Java Web Weekly, Issue 118 – Java网络周刊》第118期

最后修改: 2016年 4月 1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


>> Var and val in Java? []

An interesting opinion piece about the introduction of local variable type inference in Java.


>> The Spring Boot Dashboard in STS – Part 5: Working with Launch configurations []

Launch configs have always been a bit hard to manage in Eclipse – it’s nice to see the new Boot dashboards make some headway into getting these easier to manage.

在Eclipse中,启动配置总是有点难以管理 – 很高兴看到新的Boot仪表盘在使这些配置更容易管理方面取得了一些进展。

>> Jenkins 2.0 Beta Available, Adds New Pipeline Build System [] and >> Jenkins 2.0 Overview []

The Jenkins ecosystem is moving forward and we’ve all but forgotten that Hudson was even a thing.


>> Retry handling with Spring-Retry []

Retry logic was something I had to roll out by hand many years back – so having out of the box support for it in Spring is highly useful.


>> 10 Features I Wish Java Would Steal From the Kotlin Language []

A fun read and a whole lot of wishful thinking 🙂

一个有趣的阅读和一大堆一厢情愿的想法 🙂

>> JUnit 5 – Architecture []

A deeper look into the architecture of the upcoming JUnit 5, and how the improvements will help in quite a number of scenarios (including IDEs). Cool stuff.

深入了解即将到来的JUnit 5的架构,以及这些改进对相当多的场景(包括IDE)有何帮助。很酷的东西。

2. Technical

3. Musings


>> Thanks For Ruining Another Game Forever, Computers []

If you’ve been at least mildly interested in the ongoing trend of computers defeating human players in games like chess and more recently Go – this this is a fun and interesting read.


>> So You Want Some Passive Income []

A quick and practical read if you’re starting to think about passive(ish) income.


Just keep in mind that passive is an umbrella term, a long-term play and an oversimplification. It’s also, done right – a very good way to pay the bills.


>> Software Can’t Live On Its Own []

The idea of unsupervised software, much like the concept of passive income doesn’t quite work out in practice.


And so exploring this concept and being realistic about what it takes to actually support a system that’s seeing real-world use is definitely important.

And my favorite Dilberts of the week:


>> Oh, it’s on now []

>> Do you mind while I pretend to be helpful? []

>> I showed an interest in her opinion []


5. Pick of the Week

>> Sleep deprivation is not a badge of honor []
