Hi John! Welcome to Codetown. I enjoed browsing your blog. Kudos, because each entry has useful info we can all learn from. I particularly liked your Grails entries. We have groups you'll enjoy joining, including ones on Grails, Databases, and just look around. I hope you begin posting soon. Feel free to cut and paste content from your blog in say, the Grails group. We have a lot of Idea aficionados here, as well. I also like your photo site. Being a dog lover without a dog, I enjoy appreciating stuff like that a lot! I had trouble choosing my favorite photo, but this one is tops in my book. You'll also want to join the SunJUG, I'm sure. Welcome, and hope you invite your friends, colleagues and have a good time here in Codetown! All the best, Mike
 
 
 

Happy 10th year, JCertif!

Ensuring that employees understand appropriate ways to address daily ethical issues can have a major impact on your project outcome and your relationship with customers.

Article: A First Look at Java Inline Classes

Java currently supports only two types of value: primitives and object references. Project Valhalla extends this by introducing inline classes which are a new form of type that exhibit some behaviors of both. These new types open the door to better alignment with modern CPUs and considerable potential performance improvements for Java applications.
