Optimistic Boolean Functions

Every developer encounters situations on a day to day basis where he has to write a code that flows based on some condition, and every condition eventually resolves to a Boolean. When conditions become complex enough to be part of flow control constructs like ifs..whiles..whens we tend to extract them into a method with meaningful… Continue reading Optimistic Boolean Functions

Parallel Programming in Java – (Part-2)

Hello, welcome to the second part of "Parallel Programming in Java" series. If you have somehow missed the first part and want to read it now, then read it here. So Part-1 covered the very basic concept of task execution in parallel and how ForkJoin framework helps in writing parallel programs easily. We saw how… Continue reading Parallel Programming in Java – (Part-2)
