Here we go…

1. Spring and Java

>> Refactoring to Eclipse Collections: Making Your Java Streams Leaner, Meaner, and Cleaner []

Turbocharged streams processing with this drop-in replacement for the Java Collections Framework classes. Very cool.

“A beginner’s guide to Non-Repeatable Read anomaly”

How was this article picked as one that was worth our time?


Hey William,
Sure, that’s a great question.
First, Vlad puts out great, in-depth writeups about JPA and more generally SQL. And, of course, I personally find these deep-dives into DB semantics very useful.
That being said, you certainly don’t have to read each and every article – just pick the ones that you care about.
Hope that helps.


Hi, William

Why do you think that article is not worth your time? Can you try to elaborate it?
