    On Domain Specific Languages in Java: Method Chaining

    I just came along a very interesting blog posting about Domain Specific Languages (DSL) in Java. In his posting, Mohamed Sanaulla nicely discusses three different patterns to define an internal DSL for constructing object graphs: Method Chaining, Nested Functions and Lambda Expressions. In this series, I am going to look into each of them. In this first posting of the series, I am going to look into the Method Chaining pattern. [more...]

    Useful abstractions for I/O, part four

    In part one of this series, I’ve introduced you to the Transformation interface, which applies or unapplies a function to a Source or Sink. In this posting, I’ll show you how to write a general-purpose composed Transformation. [more...]

    Useful abstractions for I/O, part three

    In the second part of this series, I’ve covered caveats when using the Source and Sink interfaces. This time, I’ll look into another useful abstraction, the Store interface. [more...]

    Useful abstractions for I/O

    Pretty much any program needs to do I/O to process some data. Sure, in Java we have InputStream and OutputStream (or its modern day cousin, Channel) to do this with relative ease. However, this is not the end of the story. In everyday programming, I often need some higher level abstractions. Actually, I need them so often that I wonder why there are no abstractions like the following in the JSE API. [more...]
