Best of Java 2020
The best tools and tech from the Java ecosystem in 2020:
- mvnd — The Maven Daemon.
Type one extra letter, speed up your maven builds by 20-50%! Seriously, try it and see for yourself. mvnd is a drop-in replacement for maven. Once installed, just type
mvnd in place of
mvn and mvnd runs your builds using an in-memory, always running daemon process. After the first build, cached classes and data ensure markedly faster builds. If your development cycle is code/maven/test/repeat, you can see a significant increase in productivity.
Sauce. A great tool with an unusual name, Spoiklin Sauce lets you create charts and statistics for your Java codebase. See how your code compares to other projects. Is your code a Netty or an Ant?. Then run the analysis tools to see recommendations on refactorings to improve your code.
