Basics of Java 8 Lambdas!
This blog aims to explain the basics of functional programming, using Java 8 lambdas. The blog assumes you have no prior knowledge of the functional programming paradigm but have basic knowledge of Object-Oriented Programming.
What is Functional Programming.
Functional programming is nothing but a style of programming, that promotes pure functions. By pure function, I mean a piece of code that takes some input, performs computations, and gives the desired output. It doesn’t have any “side-effects” or tasks, like printing or manipulating variables outside its own scope. These functions are first-class functions, i.e., …
“All you need to know about java’s thread life cycle!”
This write-up is aimed at explaining the various states of a thread in the Java world. If you are are new to the multithreaded programming realm, try my other blog here that explains thread fundamentals.
According to Sun microsystems, there are 4 states in the java thread life cycle. They are:
Multithreading is a topic dreaded by many programmers. Probably its due to the fact that, if not written properly, multithreaded programs can cause bigger blunders than single-threaded programs and the damage done by multiple threads can be harder to assess. Some people find it difficult to understand, while others don’t bother studying it. Personally, I find it to be one of the most fascinating features of a programming language.
Through this blog, I strive to explain the nuances of multithreaded programming in simplest terms. …
