Issue 314 - Harnessing the Power of ChatGPT 4.0 From Java

A few years ago, the second oldest man in our village Chorafakia wrote a book about the history of our area. Only catch - it was in Cretan Greek. I tried to read it, but couldn't. Google Translate shrugged at the strange Cretan dialect. Then ChatGPT 4.0 came along, and we can interact with it directly from within Java. In this newsletter we have a look at how I was able to translate this masterpiece into four languages: English, German, Dutch and Slovak.

Issue 313 - Selling Our Java Skills

What causes opportunities to disappear? Is it #1 the market has lost interest in what we are selling (Java is dead). Or is it #2 we have personally become irrelevant (AI writes better code)? Or could it be something else? Join me as we read about my recent dumb mistakes :-)

Issue 312 - Alternate String Formatting with #

The printf() method in Java borrows heavily from C, including the alternate flag #. But %s works a bit differently in Java. In this newsletter we explore this a bit more deeply.

Issue 311 - Virtual Threads and Parallel Streams

Virtual threads should not be used for CPU intensive tasks. The recommended approach is to continue using parallel streams for processing large data sets. However, we should be careful when invoking a parallel stream from a virtual thread. In this newsletter we propose a "safety valve" that can protect us - sometimes.

Issue 310 - Garbage Collection and P99 Latency

In this guest article by Kirk Pepperdine, we learn about how P99 latency is affected by garbage collection stop-the-world events.
