Java in the cloud

Cloud computing is changing the face of application development. Businesses are finding ways to save on costs and increase scalability with cloud services. The success of web service applications and Software as a Service (SaaS) has led to growing acceptance of Platform as a Service (PaaS) and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS). Cloud computing resources provide Java developers with the ability to build out new projects at a low cost and scale up quickly if those Java cloud services are successful. In this section, learn about Java cloud computing and Java Web services applications including Java Web services, cloud application testing and ALM in the cloud.

Java tools

Java tools and technology help application developers build better code faster. Some Java tools are aimed at increasing the efficiency of applications running on the Java platform in terms of the computing and storage resources necessary to run the application. Other Java technologies are focused on making Java applications more maintainable via modularity and component reuse or other strategies. Still other tools and technologies are designed to make each application developer more effective by increasing communication (collaboration tools) or reducing the need for repetitive boilerplate code (high level abstractions and Java code libraries).

  • const

    The const (constant) keyword indicates that the associated variable cannot be changed. Constants are used in many programming languages.

  • exception handler

    In Java, checked exceptions are found when the code is compiled; for the most part, the program should be able to recover from these. Exception handlers are coded to define what the program should do under specified conditions.

  • encapsulation in Java

    Java offers four different "scope" realms--public, protected, private, and package--that can be used to selectively hide data constructs. To achieve encapsulation, the programmer declares the class variables as “private” and then provides what are called public “setter and getter” methods which make it possible to view and modify the variables.
