2050, Paris n'est plus qu'un torrent de violences, le terrain de jeu de fanatiques déchus. L'air n'est plus respirable. Les hologrammes ont remplacé les hommes. Le travail n'est plus que le privilège de quelques-uns. Sous l'hégémonie de Dame Consommation, il est devenu interdit de fabriquer et réparer.
Ce livre est un signal d'alerte. Il est futuriste sans être fantaisiste. Un livre terrifiant de vérités aux premières pages et saisissant d'espoir aux dernières. Un très beau roman d'anticipation, empli d'humanité. Un bel appel au vivre ensemble et au retour à l'autosuffisance.
This comprehensive guide shows you how to master the most important
changes to Java since it was first released. Generics and the greatly
expanded collection libraries have tremendously increased the power of
Java 5 and Java 6. But they have also confused many developers who
haven't known how to take advantage of these new features.
Java Generics and Collections covers everything from the most
basic uses of generics to the strangest corner cases. It teaches you
everything you need to know about the collections libraries, so you'll
always know which collection is appropriate for any given task, and
how to use it.
Topics covered include:
- Fundamentals of generics: type parameters and generic methods
- Other new features: boxing and unboxing, foreach loops, varargs
- Subtyping and wildcards
- Evolution not revolution: generic libraries with legacy clients and
generic clients with legacy libraries
- Generics and reflection
- Design patterns for generics
- Sets, Queues, Lists, Maps, and their implementations
- Concurrent programming and thread safety with collections
- Performance implications of different collections
Generics and the new collection libraries they inspired take Java to a
new level. If you want to take your software development practice to
a new level, this book is essential reading.
Philip Wadler is Professor of Theoretical Computer Science at the
University of Edinburgh, where his research focuses on the design of
programming languages. He is a co-designer of GJ, work that
became the basis for generics in Sun's Java 5.0.
Maurice Naftalin is Technical Director at Morningside Light Ltd., a software consultancy in the United Kingdom. He has most recently served as an architect and mentor at NSB Retail Systems plc, and as the leader of the client development team of a major UK government social service system.
"A brilliant exposition of generics. By far the best book on the
topic, it provides a crystal clear tutorial that starts with the
basics and ends leaving the reader with a deep understanding of both
the use and design of generics."
