Framework Benchmarks


We want this test to require repeated requests to an external service (MySQL or MongoDB, for example) so that we exercise the frameworks data mapping code. For example, on the Java platform, Jackson was used for frameworks that do not provide a serializer. Code examples.

Do you have any examples of where any sort of civic engagement outreach/campaign affected legislation? I’m looking for more granular examples than a response like “the civil rights movement&# , but more so examples of specific petitions or letter writing campaigns that might have contributed to getting some sort of legislation passed.

Frameworks Round 6


In preliminary tests, we experimented with more requests per pipeline but doing so caused socket write buffer overflows. The wrk tool was later enhanced to allow larger write buffers, but we ultimately decided to retain a 16 requests per pipeline test configuration.

Frameworks Round 5


Additionally, we have added a new test type focused on writes, wherein a variable number of database updates are executed per request. MySQL with MyISAM was substantially faster at writes than with InnoDB, but the official Round 5 results are using InnoDB.

Everything about Java 8


At the time of this writing, Java 8 development is still very much in progress. The List interface is an example. Here are a few examples of lambdas: Comma-separated list of inputs with specified types on the left, a block with a return on the right: (int x, int y) -> { return x + y; }. For example, this lambda captures the variable x : int x = 5; return y -> x + y; In order for this lambda declaration to be valid, the variables it captures must be "effectively final".

Efficient multiple-stream concatenation in Java


With three streams we could write Stream.concat(Stream.concat(a, b), c). For example, it interacts poorly with infinite streams. I want to combine the elements of multiple Stream instances into a single Stream. What's the best way to do this? This article compares a few different solutions. Stream.concat(a, b). The JDK provides Stream.concat(a, b) for concatenating two streams. void exampleConcatTwo () {. Stream a = Stream. of ( "one" , "two" ); Stream b = Stream.

EnumSet and EnumMap


If you write a lot of Java code, then you should read that book and follow its advice. The iterable.spliterator() method is critical when it comes to stream performance, but writing a custom Spliterator from scratch is a non-trivial task. Write a benchmark afterwards to confirm your assumptions. I suspect that those changes will cause exactly zero users of the JDK to write their applications differently. The EnumSet.allOf(elementType) method is a great example.

Mangling JSON numbers


We happen to use JAX-RS in our example code. We should write an alternative to JSON.stringify that produces an exact representation of our number.” We can no longer write Mustache or Handlebars templates like this: {{! We can no longer write functions like this: function updateEmailAddress(user, newEmail) { // Oops, we failed for user #2^62! If we have a long (64-bit integer) that we serialize into JSON, we might be in trouble if JavaScript consumes that JSON.
