    If you've ever used libraries like or (if you've ever done some backend development) and wondered how do they seem to add some code/logic into your app just by adding some annotation to some method, or if you ever wondered how mocking frameworks like Mockito can change a class behavior for example, then most likely you're interested in a programming technique that allows to modify existing code, usually known as Aspect oriented programming (also known in Java as Bytecode instrumentation) which, even though it might sound intimidating at first, some really cool tools such as Byte Buddy or AspectJ make it quite easy to accomplish.

  • Do people use JPA a whole lot?

    One of my colleagues made a PR to Hibernate to fix query statistics for the case when your usual query is less than 1 millisecond and you have millions of them (not per second surely, but during the lifetime of the application - there were some thousands per second) - that was the case on one of our projects - And that was many years ago - computers got faster since than.

  • Help in reading JAVA documentation for Configuration class (hibernate)
    1 project | | 15 Mar 2022
    The answer is that you're using a different version of hibernate than you're looking at the documents for. Your docs link is REALLY old. The oldest version of docs that has on their site where you can easily find them is 4.2 and in that version (maybe even older ones, probably started in 4) .addAnnotatedClassis inConfiguration`
  • Partitioning a billion-row table of soccer data using data context
    2 projects | | 9 Mar 2022
    My team has been developing the backend application that provides the most crucial data exploration features. We adopted Kotlin v1.6 running on top of a JVM (Java Virtual Machine) as the programming language, Spring Boot 2.5.3 as the framework, and Hibernate 5.4.32.Final as the ORM (Object Relational Mapping). The main reason why we opted for this technology stack is that speed is one of the most crucial business requirements. So, we needed a technology that could leverage heavy multi-thread processing, and Spring Boot turned out to be a reliable solution.

  • How to mock a database connection in Java?
    1 project | | 5 Jan 2022
    There are in-memory databases such as H2 which you can use for testing that is just a library you import. However, syntax can vary between databases. So it's only really appropriate if you're also using something like Hibernate which abstracts away a lot of the differences.
