Interesting Links – 15 Nov 2016
- Big news: JRebel 7 has been released, with a new agent enabling you to change class hierarchy and interface implementations on the fly. For Spring it now also supports reconfiguring dependency injection in non-singleton scoped beans.
- From Light Java, “JEE is dead.” Misses a lot of history – blames Java EE for WebLogic’s speed and deployment model (what about containers like Orion, which could deploy the same apps in a few seconds, and didn’t need
ejbc? What about JBoss, which was free? This post ignores both, saying Java EE containers were slow and expensive), and misrepresents a question about Oracle as a statement of Oracle policy, also misunderstands some other core facets – and tries to market Light Java itself as a framework, making this a bit of a “your framework is dead! Use mine!” post, but it’s still interesting. Of course, it’s not the only microcontainer framework out there in Java…
- From /r/java, Jadler looks like a good HTTP mocking library.
- Also from r/java, Nudge4j is a small jar to create a web-enabled access point for a running JVM – you can effectively type code to run inside a running VM. I haven’t tried it, but what an idea.
- jsoup 1.10.1 has been released. Lots of little changes; the biggest seems to be the ability to preserve case of tags (as an optional feature) but memory usage has also been optimized.
- John McClean posted an interesting article: “Trampolining: a practical guide for awesome Java Developers“.
