Cloud native Java with Micronaut – An alternative to Spring?
Yes, you read it correctly, there are alternatives. Although the top dog Spring is enjoying great popularity with Java applications, we should not forget that there are also other frameworks worth taking a look at. Here we’ll be talking about Micronaut, a relatively new framework, but one that offers some interesting features that make it a real rival to Spring, especially in the cloud environment. In this article, we will implement an application using Spring Boot and then using Micronaut. Then, we will compare the two approaches and see where each framework is superior to the other.

Java 12 Tutorial: How the new switch expressions work
The switch case expressions in Java go back pretty much to the beginnings of the programming language. It was basically a compromise in language design to make it easier for C++ developers to switch to Java. Relics like break and fall-through were not very intuitive and caused a lot of errors. In addition, the case statement was very limited regarding the notation of the values. Fortunately, this all changes with Java 12. The syntax has been slightly modified to allow specifying one expression and multiple values. In this way, case differences can be formulated much more elegantly.
