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")

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

Four Tableau products a quick review and explanation

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

Total four products. Read the details below.

Tableau desktop-(Business analytics anyone can use) - Tableau  Desktop  is  based  on  breakthrough technology  from  Stanford  University  that  lets  you drag & drop to analyze data. You can connect to  data in a few clicks, then visualize and create interactive dashboards with a few more.

We’ve done years of research to build a system that supports people’s natural  ability  to  think visually. Shift fluidly between views, following your natural train of thought. You’re not stuck in wizards or bogged down writing scripts. You just create beautiful, rich data visualizations.  It's so easy to use that any Excel user can learn it. Get more results for less effort. And it’s 10 –100x faster than existing solutions.

Different Types Of Payment Cards you need to know

The Credit Card (Shopping): The purpose o this card is to buy any item withing the limit prescribed by banks to cardholder. These cards can have both Magnetic stripe and Chip cards. 
Now a days all banks are issuing credit cards with CHIP and PIN. After entering the PIN by cardholder, then transaction starts for further processing.

The debit (ATM, Cash) card is a relatively new method of payment. It is different from a credit card because the debit cardholder pays with the money available in their bank account, which is debited immediately in real time. A debit card seems to be more dangerous compared to a credit card because the debit card is directly linked to the bank checking account and usually allows ATM cash withdrawals.

On the other hand, it is more protected by the required two-factor authentication (PIN number plus card itself). The real dangerous element of many branded debit cards is that they can be processed as credit cards, without entering the PIN.

The Sqoop in Hadoop story to process structural data

Why Sqoop you need while working on Hadoop-The Sqoop and its primary reason is to import data from structural data sources such as Oracle/DB2 into HDFS(also called Hadoop file system).
To our readers, I have collected a good video from Edureka which helps you to understand the functionality of Sqoop.

The comparison between Sqoop and Flume

The Sqoop the word came from SQL+Hadoop Sqoop word came from SQL+HADOOP=SQOOP. And Sqoop is a data transfer tool. The main use of Sqoop is to import and export the large amount of data from RDBMS to HDFS and vice versa. List of basic Sqoop commands Codegen- It helps to generate code to interact with database records.Create-hive-table- It helps to Import a table definition into a hiveEval- It helps to evaluateSQL statement and display the resultsExport-It helps to export an HDFS directory into a database tableHelp- It helps to list the available commandsImport- It helps to import a table from a database to HDFSImport-all-tables- It helps to import tables …
