  Understanding abstract interface in Java


Have you read about an interface declaration as public abstract interface InterfaceName in Java? At the first glance, is it a weird declaration? Why should we declare an interface as abstract? For example, we may see below code in some projects: public abstract interface MyInterface { public void check(); public abstract boolean check(boolean really); } Actually here abstract is redundant, an interface is implicitly abstract, we no need to put an abstract in front of interface. But it do...

  this keyword in Lambda expression in Java 8


Since the release of Java 8, people are excited to see a big feature added to this language which is existing in other languages for a long time -- Lambda expression. The introduction of lambda expression in Java 8 gives people an easy way or a vertical to horizontal way to solve problems. There are many posts on the Internet which shows how to use lambda expression in Java, such as Lambda Quick Start and Java 8 Lambda Expressions Tutorial with Examples. In this post, we will only focus on the t...

  Launch Java process programmatically in Java


In some cases while working on some automation testcase, developers would like to launch Java process programmatically so that the tests can be ran without manual intervention. Java provides such methods to achieve this. ProcessBuilder can be used to build a Java process which can be launched when everything is ready. Basically it can take a list of parameters which are similar to the command line options/arguments.  For example, if you want to launch a Java process, you can do followi...

  String intern in Java


In Java, == is used to compare whether two objects have the same memory location, equals() is usually used to compare whether two objects have the same time and the same state.  When comparing two strings, normally we just want to know whether they have same content, so we can choose equals(). But since String comparison is so frequently needed, Java has worked on the String class to make == workable when comparing two String literals. The String class maintains a pool of emp...

  Modal dialog in Java example code


In Java, we can create modal dialog so that the main JFrame cannot be operated on until the modal dialog is closed. To achieve this, we need to use one class in Java--JDialog. This class can be used to create an modal dialog.Example code : import javax.swing.JDialog; import javax.swing.JLabel; import javax.swing.JPanel; public class Dialog extends JDialog{ public Dialog(){ super(); JPanel panel=new JPanel(); panel.add(new JLabel("Hello dialog")); this.getCont...

  C++ and Java over Python in Google products


In Google, most of the products are written in C++ and Java. They usually don't choose Python to write their product stack. What's behind the decision to choose one language over the other in Google? Let's get to read some opinions from Robert Love, a Google software engineer. Love said he couldn't imagine writing let alone maintaining a large software stack in Python. They use C++, Go, and Java for production software systems, with Python employed for scripting, testing, and tooling.There are a...

  static nested and non-static nested class in Java


Nested classes are divided into two categories: static and non-static(inner). Nested classes that are declared static are simply called static nested classes. Non-static nested classes are called inner classes. Static class can be defined as : class OuterClass{ static class StaticNestedClass{ //OTHER STUFF } } Static nested classes are accessed using the enclosing class name: OuterClass.StaticNestedClass For example, to create an object for the static nested class, use this synta...

  Three images to understand immutability of String in Java


String is immutable in Java. This means once a String object is created and instantiated, that object cannot be changed. Any operation on the String object will create a new Object instead of operating on the original content. Below are three images to help you understand String immutability in Java. Declare a String String s = "abcd"; s stores the reference to the string content created in the heap. Assign the String reference to another String variable String s2 = s; s2 stores the same ...
