Professional Java EE Design Patterns

Professional Java EE Design Patterns

Master JavaEE Design Pattern implementation to improve your coding efficiency Professional JavaEE Design Patterns is the ultimate guide to working more efficiently with JavaEE, and the only resource that covers both the theory and application of design patterns in solving real-world problems. The authors guide readers through both the fundamentals and little-known secrets of JavaEE6/7, presenting patterns throughout, and demonstrating how they are used in day-to-day programming. As the standard computing platform in community-driven enterprise software, JavaEE provides an API and runtime environment above and beyond JavaSE. Written for the experienced JavaEE developer hoping to improve code quality and efficiency, the book contains time saving patterns, including: Implementation and problem-solving with design patterns Connection between existing non-JavaEE design patterns and new JavaEE concepts Unique organization that prioritizes the most relevant patterns before expanding into advanced techniques Individually-based focus that fully explores each pattern Unlike most JavaEE books that simply offer descriptions or recipes, this book drives home the actual implementation and application to keep square pegs away from round holes. For the programmer looking for a comprehensive guide that is actually useful in the everyday workflow, Professional JavaEE Design Patterns is the definitive resource on the market.

Pragmatic Unit Testing in Java 8 with JUnit

Pragmatic Unit Testing in Java 8 with JUnit

The Pragmatic Programmers classic is back! Freshly updated for modern software development, Pragmatic Unit Testing in Java 8 With JUnit teaches you how to write and run easily maintained unit tests in JUnit with confidence. You'll learn mnemonics to help you know what tests to write, how to remember all the boundary conditions, and what the qualities of a good test are. You'll see how unit tests can pay off by allowing you to keep your system code clean, and you'll learn how to handle the stuff that seems too tough to test.

Pragmatic Unit Testing in Java 8 With JUnit steps you through all the important unit testing topics. If you've never written a unit test, you'll see screen shots from Eclipse, IntelliJ IDEA, and NetBeans that will help you get past the hard part--getting set up and started.

Once past the basics, you'll learn why you want to write unit tests and how to effectively use JUnit. But the meaty part of the book is its collected unit testing wisdom from people who've been there, done that on production systems for at least 15 years: veteran author and developer Jeff Langr, building on the wisdom of Pragmatic Programmers Andy Hunt and Dave Thomas. You'll learn:
  • How to craft your unit tests to minimize your effort in maintaining them.
  • How to use unit tests to help keep your system clean.
  • How to test the tough stuff.
  • Memorable mnemonics to help you remember what's important when writing unit tests.
  • How to help your team reap and sustain the benefits of unit testing.
You won't just learn about unit testing in theory--you'll work through numerous code examples. When it comes to programming, hands-on is the only way to learn!

Beginning Java Programming: The Object-Oriented Approach

Beginning Java Programming: The Object-Oriented Approach

A comprehensive Java guide, with samples, exercises, casestudies, and step-by-step instruction

Beginning Java Programming: The Object Oriented Approachis a straightforward resource for getting started with one of theworld's most enduringly popular programming languages. Based onclasses taught by the authors, the book starts with the basics andgradually builds into more advanced concepts. The approach utilizesan integrated development environment that allows readers toimmediately apply what they learn, and includes step-by-stepinstruction with plenty of sample programs. Each chapter containsexercises based on real-world business and educational scenarios,and the final chapter uses case studies to combine several conceptsand put readers' new skills to the test.

Beginning Java Programming: The Object Oriented Approachprovides both the information and the tools beginners need todevelop Java skills, from the general concepts of object-orientedprogramming. Learn to: * Understand the Java language and object-oriented conceptimplementation * Use Java to access and manipulate external data * Make applications accessible to users with GUIs * Streamline workflow with object-oriented patterns

The book is geared for those who want to use Java in an appliedenvironment while learning at the same time. Useful as either acourse text or a stand-alone self-study program, Beginning JavaProgramming is a thorough, comprehensive guide.

Get System Java Compiler and check sourceVersion

Example to get System Java Compiler by calling ToolProvider.getSystemJavaCompiler(), and check sourceVersion with getSourceVersions().

package java_javacompiler;

import java.util.Set;
import javax.lang.model.SourceVersion;
import javax.tools.JavaCompiler;
import javax.tools.ToolProvider;

public class Java_JavaCompiler {

    public static void main(String[] args) {
        JavaCompiler javaCompiler = ToolProvider.getSystemJavaCompiler();
        Set<SourceVersion> sourceVersion;
        sourceVersion = javaCompiler.getSourceVersions();
        for (SourceVersion version : sourceVersion) {
            System.out.print(version.name() + "\n");

Java code to get number of processors available

Every Java application has a single instance of class Runtime that allows the application to interface with the environment in which the application is running. The current runtime can be obtained from the getRuntime() method.

availableProcessors() method of Runtime returns the number of processors available to the Java virtual machine.

This value may change during a particular invocation of the virtual machine. Applications that are sensitive to the number of available processors should therefore occasionally poll this property and adjust their resource usage appropriately.

package java_availableprocessors;

public class Java_availableProcessors {

    public static void main(String[] args) {
        System.out.print("availableProcessors = " 
            + Runtime.getRuntime().availableProcessors() + "\n");
