Speeding up Android builds with an incremental Java compiler

Since we launched JRebel for Android last year, we’ve learned a lot about the Android build system, how it behaves in real-world projects, and where actual build time bottlenecks occur. Most of this invaluable feedback came from our JRebel for Android users and provided us ideas on how to make it even faster!

Today, I’m pleased to announce that the JRebel for Android now includes an incremental compiler that makes the performance of code and resource updating even snappier.

When you use the default toolchain, specifically Android Studio and Gradle, there are two major tasks in the build process of an Android app that are not entirely incremental. First is the compilation of Java source files and the other is resource packaging. In this post, I wanted to share some details about the compilation aspect and how we made it incremental, what challenges still exist and where it can take you performance wise.

Spring and Java EE – Head to Head

Spring v JavaEE

Spring and Java EE are largely considered competing technologies. Our recent RebelLabs tools and technologies report asked whether which Java EE versions people used and whether or not they used Spring.

However, we’re trying to understand better what exactly developers mean when they say “I use Spring” or “I use Java EE.” Are we talking about the servlet classes being used underneath it all or the full blown profile? We’ll find it out by asking you for a little more detail in our new 5 question mini-survey.

4 JPA Best Practices for Better Application Performance

You know how when you say a word too many times, it loses its meaning?
Performance. Performance. Perfromance. Perfroamnce. Prefroanmce. Prefornacme. Hold the door!

Sometimes that happens with “performance,” especially when there are so many points of failure which are out of your control. But one thing you can control as a developer, is how your code uses the database.

This post gives you a slideshare for 4 JPA best practices for better application performance.

OSX productivity tips: advanced shortcuts and windows manager

I’ve been a long time OSX user. The saying goes: “Once you go Mac, you never go back!” And while I absolutely love what Apple has done with the operating system, there are always some customization and productivity tricks that can make the entire experience even more awesome.

Today I would like to share a couple of customizations with you. I use these whenever I get my hands on a new Mac. I am somewhat of a shortcut junkie and I try to avoid using the mouse as much as possible. This blog post is heavily centered around that and adding new global keyboard shortcuts to OSX.
