Vavr (formerly called Javaslang) is a functional library for Java 8+ that provides persistent data types and functional control structures. It enables writing Java code in a more functional way. It is inspired by Scala.
This article treats about interactions with TeamCity – about controlling its flow or getting useful information. All interaction examples will in form of python snippets – for service messages it will be simple prints and for REST – ‘requests’ library.
In this article we will take a closer look at Aspect Oriented Programming (AOP) with a little help from Spring Framework. AOP is powerful tool that can increase modularity, keep code clean and easier to read, maintain and develop.
Check how simple and easy it is to program Arduino microcontroller.
Its compact, powerful, goes with hundreds of additional components that allow you to feel how it is to be a real engineer. Let this guide inspire you to build your own devices, micro machines, smart-house components and many more!
Ratpack is a set of Java libraries that enable writing efficient HTTP applications. It’s built on Netty event-driven networking engine. In some cases it may be considered as better alternative to Java Servlet technology, since it’s non-blocking and event-driven.
I’ve been working with cucumber-java test framework for some time now and I must admit, I really like what is possible to achieve by using it. Of course, it is quite common in test automation, that more often it is required to do something that is nearly impossible than otherwise.
Reinforcement learning is a type of machine learning that does not require a dataset to learn from. It can learn from the experience it gathers. Let’s think of the network as of an agent in a defined environment. The agent learns about the environment through the actions it performs and a feedback it receives. For each action, it will receive a reward, if the action was good or a penalty otherwise. Based on the knowledge the agent has gathered and the current state of the environment, the next action is chosen.
Web application testing is not only web browser compatibility testing nowadays. Verifying proper visibility on mobile devices as tablets and smartphones is same or even more important in the context of potential users.
Java is not a functional programming language. Despite the fact that Java 8 came with some elements from functional world, there is still no way to write fully functional code in Java. One of the key aspect of functional programming is using monad. I am not going to describe what are monads but I will describe some of them and respond to the title question.
