Java Pub House

So you may have thought about using NoSQL or a Document Database for taking care of you needs. But do you know why that might be not be a good (or a pretty bad idea?). Or you may have a Database that have been running fine, but it seems that you can't work with it anymore? (Is it time to move to NoSql? Would it help?).

We dive into the "Why" would you choose Databases vs NoSQL Data Stores, or when to ditch your MongoDB and actually come back to MySQL. In our current time of "WebScale" and "CloudReady" we get bombarded by choices! (Mongo, Dynamo, MariaDB, ElasticSearch) and while some of the offerings are great, it might not mean that is the Right choice for what we need to store.

So take a listen as we explore normalization and the strength and weaknesses of relational data vs unstructured data.

It's coming! If you have been using Oracle Java 8, you should know that starting on January 2019 we will have to get an oracle license for running Oracle's JDK in production. OR, if you want to keep using Oracle Java (or OpenJDK) for free, and still receive security updates, then you gotta move to 11!

In this episode we have no other than @DrDeprecator itself giving us a tour on what are the less-known changes (and goodies) that are coming when upgrading from 8 to 11. We go through most of the JEPs that usually don't make the news but are actually pretty awesome!

So take a listen, and start downloading the new Java 11!

In this episode we interview Janine Patterson on her talk of "Integration Test Coverage with JaCoCo" and dive into the nuances of Units vs Integration tests. We dive into Gherkin sentences as we use Cucumber, and challenges of integration tests (hint... use Docker). We also dive into the best way to execute these (Spring Runner). In all, if you were interested in upping your integration testing game, this is the one episode to listen to!

We went to one of the best sources to learn what's happening with Var and Java 10, @stuartmarks! Also, what has been (and is being deprecated) on Java 10, and 11. And little inside perspective of having a new java version every six months!

Included is a the "convConvenience Factory Methods for Collections" List.of, Set.of, Map.of that @stuartmarks did for Java 9! (and his new contributions for Java 10). And a interesting trick of the non-deterministic order of unmodifiable sets! (A Stuart Marks special!)

So come and listen to this episode which contains great tips and tricks directly from one of the contributors to the Java Programming Language API!

It was both the most anticipated and (one of the) most controversial features in Java 9. What's the bruhaha all about? What is Jigsaw (or the Java Platform Module System)? What does it bring? Can I use it? And if so, why would I use it? All these questions are answered as we dive into the history of JSR-376 (it has been years in the making). And since Jigsaw is so big, there might be a two-parter for us! So stay tuned!
