Many of these Java interview questions are asked on JP Morgan, Morgan Stanley, Barclays or Goldman Sachs. Banks mostly asked core Java interview questions frommulti-threading, collection, serialization, coding and OOPS design principles.
  This isn’t going to be a rant about functional programming, which is awesome. This is a warning about some practices that you are very likely going to apply to your code, which are terribly wrong!. Higher order functions are essential to functional programming, and thus, talking about them will help you be the center of attention at parties.

So you want to do microservices? please watch Microservices for Mortals (by Paris Apostolopoulos)
So many valid points from Bert Ertman in this presentation around Microservices. Are you considering following this path in your project, in your team or your company? Please grab a coffee, a note pad (if you like hand written notes) and watch this. It is really a pain, waste of energy and very discouraging to see many companies and teams, failing miserably either because they ...
  What is a volatile variable? volatile is a keyword in Java. You cannot use this as a variable or method name. Period. Seriously, jokes aside, what is volatile variable? When should we use it? Ha ha, sorry, couldn’t help. We typically use volatile keyword when we share variables with more than one thread in a multi-threaded environment, and ...

Reduce Legacy from Java EE 5 to 7 (by Roberto Cortez)
Java EE 5 was first introduced in 2005, while Java EE 7 came out in 2013. There is a 7 year gap between both versions and in technology terms it’s like a century. Many organizations are still stuck using Java EE 5 and there are many valid reasons why they choose not to upgrade. Still, these become irrelevant if you look into some of the reasons to move forward: ...

1. Immutable class: Immutable class is a class which the state of its instances does not change once it is constructed. Immutable objects are especially useful in concurrent applications. Since they cannot change state, they cannot be corrupted by thread interference or observed in an inconsistent state.
  1. Introduction: In this article we will explore the JPA bidirectional @ManyToMany association in a SQL and NoSQL fashion. A @ManyToMany association occurs when multiple records in one table, each correspond to multiple records in a related table. If the records from the second table have an inverse association back to the first table, ...
  Play is a Web Framework for Scala and Java and it is a really powerful and complete one. It provides an easy way of building web servers, running on an embedded jetty, and even rest clients with its WS library. In this example, we are going to get a Play Application running. We’ll see how to create it from scratch using typesafe activator 1.2.12, sbt 0.13.5, java 1.8.0_66, scala 2.11.6 and Play 2.4.3.

JUnit Disable Test Example
1. Introduction: There are instances that our test cases aren’t ready yet and it would almost be certain that when we run our builds with these, there is a high probability that our test executions will fail. This can be avoided using the@Ignore annotation.

JMS Topic Example
When a publisher sends a message, there may be more than one customer interested in such messages. Publisher broadcasts the message to JMS destination called ‘topic’. There may be more than one consumer subscribed to the topic. All the active clients subscribed to the topic will receive ...

As a growing startup that provides a SaaS platform to automate B2B sales lead management and social selling at scale, ProLeads has been pressed to deliver more valuable features while we cut our server hosting costs.

  The aim of this example is to have a look at the .fiter(); method of jQuery. What this method does is reduce the set of matched elements to those that match the selector or pass the function’s test. In other words, the filter() method returns elements that match a certain criteria. It lets you specify a criteria.
  In a previous article by Marko Locher, we learned how to run a Rails development environment in Docker. Marko also wrote about how to test a Rails app with Docker. So assuming we have our dev environment set up, our app is tested (and the tests are passing), we’re ready to think about deploying our application to production.
