Java Testing with Spock

Java Testing with Spock teaches you how to use Spock for a wide range of testing use cases in Java. You'll start with a quick overview of Spock and work through writing unit tests using the Groovy language. You'll discover best practices for test design as you learn to write mocks, implement integration tests, use Spock's built-in BDD testing tools, and do functional web testing using Geb. Readers new to Groovy will appreciate the succinct language tutorial in chapter 2 that gives you just enough Groovy to use Spock effectively.

Building Maintainable Software, Java Edition

Have you ever felt frustrated working with someone else's code? Difficult-to-maintain source code is a big problem in software development today, leading to costly delays and defects. Be part of the solution. With this practical book, you'll learn 10 easy-to-follow guidelines for delivering Java software that's easy to maintain and adapt. These guidelines have been derived from analyzing hundreds of real-world systems.

Optimizing Java

Currently, no books exist that focus on the practicalities of Java application performance tuning, as opposed to the theory and internals of Java virtual machines. This practical guide is the "missing link" that aims to move Java performance tuning from the realm of guesswork and folklore to an experimental science. Learn how to approach performance problems in an consistent and systematic way; Resolve production performance issues by learning core Java performance topics; Identify and resolve performance issues before encountering them in production; Understand the performance problems you encounter by learning the Java platform's internals.

Java Persistence with Hibernate, 2nd Edition

Java Persistence with Hibernate, 2nd Edition explores Hibernate by developing an application that ties together hundreds of individual examples. You'll immediately dig into the rich programming model of Hibernate, working through mappings, queries, fetching strategies, transactions, conversations, caching, and more. Along the way you'll find a well-illustrated discussion of best practices in database design and optimization techniques. In this revised edition, authors Christian Bauer, Gavin King, and Gary Gregory cover Hibernate 5 in detail with the Java Persistence 2.1 standard (JSR 338). All examples have been updated for the latest Hibernate and Java EE specification versions.

Genetic Algorithms in Java Basics

Genetic Algorithms in Java Basics is a brief introduction to solving problems using genetic algorithms, with working projects and solutions written in the Java programming language. This brief book will guide you step-by-step through various implementations of genetic algorithms and some of their common applications, with the aim to give you a practical understanding allowing you to solve your own unique, individual problems. After reading this book you will be comfortable with the language specific issues and concepts involved with genetic algorithms and you'll have everything you need to start building your own.

Java Threads and the Concurrency Utilities

This concise book empowers all Java developers to master the complexity of the Java thread APIs and concurrency utilities. This knowledge aids the Java developer in writing correct and complex performing multithreaded applications. Java's thread APIs and concurrency utilities are among its most powerful and challenging APIs and language features. Java beginners typically find it very difficult to use these features to write correct multithreaded applications. Threads and the Concurrency Utilities helps all Java developers master and use these capabilities effectively.

Java I/O, NIO and NIO.2

Java I/O, NIO, and NIO.2 is a power-packed book that accelerates your mastery of Java's various I/O APIs. In this book, you'll learn about classic I/O APIs (File, RandomAccessFile, the stream classes and related types, and the reader/writer classes). Next, you'll learn about NIO's buffer, channel, selector, regular expression, charset, and formatter APIs. Finally, you'll discover NIO.2's offerings in terms of an improved file system interface, asynchronous I/O, and the completion of socket channel functionality.

RESTful Java Web Services Security

This book will serve as a practical companion for you to learn about common vulnerabilities when using RESTful services, and will provide you with an indispensable knowledge of the tools you can use to implement and test security on your applications. It will cover the fine details of setting up RESTful services such as implementing RESTEasy and securing transmission protocols such as the OAuth protocol and its integration with RESTEasy. Furthermore, it also explains the implementation of digital signatures and the integration of the Doseta framework with RESTEasy.

RESTful Java Patterns and Best Practices

The convergence of social networking, cloud computing, and the era of mobile applications has created a generation of emerging technologies that allow different networked devices to communicate with each other over the Internet with REST. REST has the benefits of being stateless; easing scalability, visibility, and reliability; and being platform and language agnostic.

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.

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.

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.
