  • Scout APM - Less time debugging, more time building
  • SonarQube - Static code analysis for 29 languages.
  • JetBrains - Developer Ecosystem Survey 2022
  • Akka

    Build highly concurrent, distributed, and resilient message-driven applications on the JVM

    What you are describing is more or less the actor programming model. (If you’ve heard of Akka, then you’ve heard of the actor model.) Loom is an enabling technology for implementing the actor model on the (vanilla) JVM, and a lot of people are looking forward to that, including me! So that’s a perfectly valid approach.

  • junit5-looming

    🧵 JUnit 5 Test Engine using project Loom early-access builds

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.
