Reading List ::: from JavaSpecialists

Issue 273 - Truly Public Methods

Class.getMethods() returns all the public methods in this class and the classes in its ancestry. However, we cannot necessarily call these methods, for example if they are declared in a private inner class or a lambda. In this newsletter we attempt to find all truly public methods.

Issue 272 - Hacking Enums Revisited

In a previous newsletter, we looked at how we could dynamically add new enums and also rewire affected switch statements. Due to improvements in Java security, our old approach needs to be updated for Java 12.

Issue 271 - HttpClient Executors

Java 11 added the HttpClient to give us a better way to send HTTP requests. It supports asynchronous and synchronous mode. HTTP2 comes out of the box. The threading is a bit funky though and Professor Cay Horstmann explores how things work underneath the covers.

Issue 270 - Excursions into Deduplication

When are Strings deduplicated? How can we find out whether they are of any benefit in our application? How much does it cost in terms of CPU? We try to show you how we can get this from the deduplication statistics provided by the JVM.

Issue 269 - Heterogeneous Comparisons

The compareTo() function has three rules. Break any one of them and you might get an exception when you sort. In this newsletter we explore what these rules are and how they can affect sorting.
