Java Program Design
Get a grounding in polymorphism and other fundamental aspects of object-oriented program design and implementation, and learn a subset of design patterns that any practicing Java professional simply must know in today's job climate.
Java Program Design presents program design principles to help practicing programmers up their game and remain relevant in the face of changing trends and an evolving language. The book enhances the traditional design patterns with Java's new functional programming features, such as functional interfaces and lambda expressions. The result is a fresh treatment of design patterns that expands their power and applicability, and reflects current best practice.
The book examines some well-designed classes from the Java class library, using them to illustrate the various object-oriented principles and patterns under discussion. Not only does this approach provide good, practical examples, but you will learn useful library classes you mi ...
Java Design Patterns, 2nd Edition
Get hands-on experience implementing 26 of the most common design patterns using Java and Eclipse. In addition to Gang of Four (GoF) design patterns, you will also learn about alternative design patterns, and understand the criticisms of design patterns with an overview of anti-patterns. For each pattern you will see at least one real-world scenario, a computer-world example, and a complete implementation including output.
This book has three parts. The first part covers 23 Gang of Four (GoF) design patterns. The second part includes three alternative design patterns. The third part presents criticisms of design patterns with an overview of anti-patterns. You will work through easy-to-follow examples to understand the concepts in depth and you will have a collection of programs to port over to your own projects.
A Q&A session is included in each chapter and covers the pros and cons of each pattern. The last chapter presents FAQs about the design patterns. The step-by-step ...
Reactive Streams in Java
Get an easy introduction to reactive streams in Java to handle concurrency, data streams, and the propagation of change in today's applications. This compact book includes in-depth introductions to RxJava Akka Streams, and Reactor, and integrates the latest related features from Java 9 and 11, as well as reactive streams programming with the Android SDK.
Reactive Streams in Java explains how to manage the exchange of stream data across an asynchronous boundary - passing elements on to another thread or thread-pool - while ensuring that the receiving side is not forced to buffer arbitrary amounts of data which can reduce application efficiency. After reading and using this book, you'll be proficient in programming reactive streams for Java in order to optimize application performance, and improve memory management and data exchanges.
Discover reactive streams and how to use them; Work with the latest features in Java 9 and Java 11; ...
Blockchain Developer's Guide
Blockchain applications provide a single-shared ledger to eliminate trust issues involving multiple stakeholders. It is the main technical innovation of Bitcoin, where it serves as the public ledger for Bitcoin transactions.
Blockchain Developer's Guide takes you through the electrifying world of blockchain technology. It begins with the basic design of a blockchain and elaborates concepts, such as Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs), tokens, smart contracts, and other related terminologies. You will then explore the components of Ethereum, such as Ether tokens, transactions, and smart contracts that you need to build simple DApps.
Blockchain Developer's Guide also explains why you must specifically use Solidity for Ethereum-based projects and lets you explore different blockchains with easy-to-follow examples. You will learn a wide range of concepts - beginning with cryptography in cryptocurrencies and including ether security, mining, and smart contracts. You will learn how to use we ...
Microservices Patterns teaches enterprise developers and architects how to build applications with the microservice architecture. Rather than simply advocating for the use the microservice architecture, this clearly-written guide takes a balanced, pragmatic approach, exploring both the benefits and drawbacks.
Successfully developing microservices-based applications requires mastering a new set of architectural insights and practices. In this unique book, microservice architecture pioneer and Java Champion Chris Richardson collects, catalogues, and explains 44 patterns that solve problems such as service decomposition, transaction management, querying, and inter-service communication.
Microservices Patterns teaches you how to develop and deploy production-quality microservices-based applications. This invaluable set of design patterns builds on decades of distributed system experience, adding new patterns for writing services and composing them into systems that scale and p ...
As you make your way through the chapters, you'll learn how to build an API server to interact with your blockchain and how to host your blockchain on a decentralized network. You'll also build a consensus algorithm and use it to verify data and keep the entire blockchain network synchronized. In the concluding chapters, you'll finish building your blockchain prototype and gain a thorough understanding of why blockchain technology is so secure and valuable.
By the end of this book, you'll understand how decentra ...
Kotlin for Enterprise Applications using Java EE
Kotlin was developed with a view to solving programmers difficulties and operational challenges. This book guides you in making Kotlin and Java EE work in unison to build enterprise-grade applications. Together, they can be used to create services of any size with just a few lines of code and let you focus on the business logic.
Kotlin for Enterprise Applications using Java EE begins with a brief tour of Kotlin and helps you understand what makes it a popular and reasonable choice of programming language for application development, followed by its incorporation in the Java EE platform. We will then learn how to build applications using the Java Persistence API (JPA) and Enterprise JavaBeans (EJB), as well as develop RESTful web services and MicroServices. As we work our way through the chapters, we'll use various performance improvement and monitoring tools for your application and see how they optimize real-world applications. At each step along the way ...
