Run Scala on Java with these unique features

Let us start it in layman terms...

Why you need Scala...

The name Scala stands for “scalable language.” The language is so named because it was designed to grow with the demands of its users.

Where Scala can be applied...

You can apply Scala to a wide range of programming tasks, from writing small scripts to
building large systems.

The real use of Scala...
  • Scala is easy to get into. It runs on the standard Java platform and interoperates seamlessly with all Java libraries. It’s quite a good language for writing scripts that pull together Java components.
  • But it can apply its strengths even more when used for building large systems and frameworks of reusable components.
Technically, Scala is a blend of object-oriented and functional programming
concepts in a statically typed language.
The fusion of object-oriented and functional programming shows up in many different aspects of Scala;
It is probably more pervasive than in any other widely used language. The two programming styles have complementary strengths when it comes to scalability.

What are the Scala unique strengths...
  • Scala’s functional programming constructs make it easy to build interesting things quickly from simple parts.
  • Its object-oriented constructs make it easy to structure larger systems and to adapt them to new demands.
The combination of both styles in Scala makes it possible to express new kinds of programming patterns and component abstractions. It also leads to a legible and concise programming style. And because it is so malleable, programming in Scala can be a lot of fun.

The sample SCALA program...

Scala program:

var capital = Map("US" -> "Washington", "France" -> "Paris")
capital += ("Japan" -> "Tokyo")
println(capital("France"))

This program sets up a map from countries to their capitals, modifies the map by adding a new binding ("Japan" -> "Tokyo"), and prints the capital associated with the country France.

The notation in this example is high-level, to the point, and not cluttered with extraneous semicolons or type annotations.

Indeed, the feel is that of a modern “scripting” language like Perl, Python, or Ruby.

One common characteristic of these languages, which is relevant for the example above, is that they each support an “associative map” construct in the syntax of the language

Top 20 ultimate ETL Questions really good for interviews

How to print/display the first line of a file?  there are many ways to do this. However the easiest way to display the first line of a file is using the [head] command.  $> head -1 file. Txt no prize in guessing that if you specify [head -2] then it would print first 2 records of the file.  another way can be by using [sed] command. [sed] is a very powerful text editor which can be used for various text manipulation purposes like this.  $> sed '2,$ d' file. Txt how does the above command work?  The 'd' parameter basically tells [sed] to delete all the records from display from line 2 to last line of the file (last line is represented by $ symbol). Of course it does not actually delete those lines from the file, it just does not display those lines in standard output screen. So you only see the remaining line which is the 1st line.  how to print/display the last line of a file?  the easiest way is to use the [tail] command.  $> tail -1 file. Txt if you want to do it using…

The unique helpful SAN architecture simplified one

Storage Area Networks (SANs)

A SAN is connected behind the servers. SANs provide block-level access to shared data storage. Block level access refers to the specific blocks of data on a storage device as opposed to file level access. One file will contain several blocks. 

SANs provide high availability and robust business continuity for critical data environments. SANs are typically switched fabric architectures using Fibre Channel (FC) for connectivity. The term switched fabric refers to each storage unit being connected to each server via multiple SAN switches also called SAN directors which provide redundancy within the paths to the storage units. This provides additional paths for communications and eliminates one central switch as a single point of failure.Ethernet has many advantages similar to Fibre Channel for supporting SANs. Some of these include high speed, support of a switched fabric topology, widespread interoperability, and a large set of management tools. In a storage ne…

Four Tableau products a quick review and explanation

I want to share you what are the Products most popular.
