Introduction to Java programming, Part 1: Java language basics

Get an introduction to the structure, syntax, and programming paradigm of the Java language and platform in this two-part tutorial. Learn the Java syntax that you’re most likely to encounter professionally and Java programming idioms you can use to build robust, maintainable Java applications. In Part 1, master the essentials of object-oriented programming on the Java platform, including fundamental Java syntax. Get started with creating Java objects and adding behavior to them, and conclude with a summary of Java coding best practices.

JVM concurrency: Building actor applications with Akka

Actor applications require a different style of programming from the linear approach that is used for single-threaded applications. Go deeper into structuring systems in terms of actors and messages from Scala code, using the Akka toolkit and runtime.

JVM concurrency: Acting asynchronously with Akka

The actor model, a long-established approach to concurrent programming, gives you an easy way to build applications for high concurrency and scalability. Learn about the actor model and start working in Scala or Java with the Akka implementation of the model.

JVM concurrency: Asynchronous event handling in Scala

Scala Future and Promise classes give you powerful ways to handle asynchronous processing, including nonblocking ways to organize and sequence events. The async / await constructs, implemented as a macro, make it even easier to write nonblocking event handling in Scala. This tutorial shows you the basic Future and Promise techniques in action, then demonstrates how async / await can convert what looks like simple blocking code to nonblocking execution.

JVM concurrency: Java 8 concurrency basics

Java 8 incorporates new language features and added classes that give you easier ways to construct programs, including concurrent programs. Learn about new, powerful parallel-processing support in the language made possible by Java 8 extensions, including CompletableFuture and streams. You'll recognize similarities between these new features and some of the Scala capabilities that you explored in the first article of this series.

Using Spark Streaming for keyword detection

As new kinds of devices connect to the internet, they generate petabytes of data every day. Companies analyze this valuable data to better understand and meet their customers’ needs. Streaming big data analytics gives users the ability to analyze data in real time, which is useful in time-critical applications like fraud detection. In this article, learn how to use the Spark Streaming platform for real-time keyword detection.
