In the last article I outlined a pragmatic approach to Java 8's Optional class. In this one I'm looking at how we should name query methods that might return Optional.

Gary Benson: td_ta_map_lwp2thrGary Bensonhttp://gbenson.net/?p=4702015-08-25T15:24:47Z2015-08-25T15:24:47Z
To debug live processes on modern Linux GDB needs four libthread_db functions: td_ta_map_lwp2thr (required for initial attach) td_thr_get_info (required for initial attach) td_thr_tls_get_addr (not required for initial attach, but required for “p errno” on regular executables) td_thr_tlsbase (not required for initial attach, but required for “p errno” for -static -pthread executables) To debug a corefile on […]

Gary Benson: InfinityGary Bensonhttp://gbenson.net/?p=4492015-08-27T00:00:19Z2015-08-25T00:24:49Z
I’m writing a replacement for libthread_db. It’s called Infinity. Why? Because libthread_db is a pain in the ass for debuggers. GDB has to watch for inferiors loading thread libraries. It has to know that, for example, on GNU/Linux, when the inferior loads libpthread.so then GDB has to locate the corresponding libthread_db.so into itself and use […]

Stephen Colebourne: Java SE 8 Optional, a pragmatic approachStephen Colebournetag:blogger.com,1999:blog-741750605858169835.post-38046791749243271612015-08-13T07:49:49Z2015-08-13T07:49:00Z

The Optional classs in Java 8 is a useful tool to help developers manage data. But advice on how to use it varies. This is my take on one good approach to using Optional in Java 8.
