At the very beginning of last year, I decided to track my reading habits and share the best stuff here, on Baeldung. Haven’t missed a review since.
Here we go…
1. Spring and Java
Reactive support has finally been merged and is included into this cut of the 5.x version of the framework.
If you’ve been holding off from exploring it before, now’s a good time to get your feet wet.
Interesting notes about what JVM compiler does to optimize the performance of our production code.

Quick and to the point – some nice APIs are coming along with Java 9.
Hehe, the good ol’ one-to-one relationship.

I personally strive to keep a healthy tension between the two and, as Sean says – ship when it’s 90% perfect.
