You will learn about the 'this' keyword, as well as new object tools. You will be able to create reusable code with encapsulation, overloading and inheritance. The most recent techniques for debugging and testing are covered comprehensively, with information on Chrome developer tools, Jasmine, PhantomJS and Protractor. This update finishes with chapters on constructing single-page web applications that dominate the modern web.
||Beginning NetBeans IDE|
Beginning NetBeans IDE is your authoritative guide for getting started learning and using the free and open source NetBeans IDE. Written by Geertjan Wielenga, who has worked on the NetBeans Team since 2004, it shows you what the IDE is all about and how to use it with real-world case studies built from the ground up as you learn all about the IDE.
In this book, you get a tour of the various, essential, and key NetBeans features, including a range of wizards and plug-ins. Then, you start building a more complex Java EE-based application using Maven with the NetBeans IDE. And, you learn how to improve that application by exploring the NetBeans refactoring, testing, debugging, and profiling tools.
After reading and using this guide, you'll come away with a working case study and many insights into how to understand and optimally make use of NetBeans IDE.
||OpenCV 3.0 Computer Vision with Java|
OpenCV 3.0 Computer Vision with Java is a practical tutorial guide that explains fundamental tasks from computer vision while focusing on Java development. This book will teach you how to set up OpenCV for Java and handle matrices using the basic operations of image processing such as filtering and image transforms. It will also help you learn how to use Haar cascades for tracking faces and to detect foreground and background regions with the help of a Kinect device. It will even give you insights into server-side OpenCV. Each chapter is presented with several projects that are ready to use. The functionality of these projects is found in many classes that allow developers to understand computer vision principles and rapidly extend or customize the projects for their needs.
||Test-Driven Java Development|
Test-driven development (TDD) is a development approach that relies on a test-first procedure that emphasises writing a test before writing the necessary code, and then refactoring the code to optimize it
The value of performing TDD with Java one of the most established programming languages, is to improve the productivity of programmers, the maintainability and performance of code, and develop a deeper understanding of the language and how to employ it effectively.
Starting with the basics of TDD and reasons why its adoption is beneficial, this book will take you from the first steps of TDD with Java until you are confident enough to embrace the practice in your day-to-day routine.
You'll be guided through setting up tools, frameworks, and the environment you need, and will dive right in to hands-on exercises with the goal of mastering one practice, tool, or framework at a time. You'll learn about the Red-Green-Refactor procedure, how to write unit tests, and how to use them as executable documentation.
This book is a comprehensive guide to designing and developing Jasmine tests to produce world-class software. The recipes are elaborated using examples from a real-world application, which involves various aspects of designing and developing tests from simple to complex level. You will learn how to create tests for jQuery and Ajax, HTML and JSON fixtures, CoffeeScript, and AngularJS. By learning and applying the best practices throughout this book, you can deliver your applications with zero defects and ensure success for you and your clients.
With the increasing demand for distributed systems for Java applications, WildFly offers a robust platform on which to deploy and manage your services. As a matter of fact, WildFly 9 is a fully certified Java EE 7 platform and provides remote management tools, such as the redesigned Admin Console and the new and powerful Command Line Interface (CLI).
With practical and accessible material, you will begin by learning to set up your WildFly runtime environment, and progress to selecting appropriate operational models, managing subsystems, and conquering the CLI. You will then walk through the different balancing and clustering techniques, simultaneously learning about role-based access control and then developing applications targeting WildFly and Docker.
||Learning React Native|
With this practical book, web developers and frontend software engineers will learn how to use native UI elements, platform APIs (such as geolocation and local storage), and platform-specific design patterns to build high-quality mobile applications. This book focuses on iOS-based examples, but you'll leave armed with the principles necessary to use React Native effectively on all mobile platforms.
||Programming Google App Engine with Java|
This practical guide shows intermediate and advanced web and mobile app developers how to build highly scalable Java applications in the cloud with Google App Engine. The flagship of Google's Cloud Platform, App Engine hosts your app on infrastructure that grows automatically with your traffic, minimizing up-front costs and accommodating unexpected visitors. You'll learn hands-on how to perform common development tasks with App Engine services and development tools, including deployment and maintenance.
For Java applications, App Engine provides a J2EE standard servlet container with a complete Java 7 JVM and standard library. Because App Engine supports common Java API standards, your code stays clean and portable.
||Learning Object-Oriented Programming|
Learning Object-Oriented Programming will help you to make better, stronger, and reusable code.
By the end of this book, you will be a competent web developer with good knowledge and a strong understanding of how to efficiently use the Jasmine framework for testing purposes.
