Which JSON library for Java can parse JSON files the fastest? Originally published: May 28, 2015 Updated on August 13, 2017 Updated on October 5, 2021 JSON is the accepted standard these days for transmitting data between servers and web applications. We often don’t think about the JSON libraries we use, but there are some differences between them. JSON is often used to transport and parse big files. This is a scenario that is common in data processing applications running in Hadoop or Spark clusters.

So, what exactly does OverOps do? OverOps pinpoints the exact cause of critical exceptions in your application with the variable state for context. Armed with that information, you don’t have to waste countless hours on detective work sorting through logs or your APM to figure out what happened with your application and what precisely needs to be fixed. For example, a programmer typically sees an exception with the related stack trace like the following. The stack trace does not show you a lot of information to help pinpoint what and why an exception was thrown in your application. In some c ..read more

Sounds cool, right?  Well it took a lot of painful debugging to pull that off. Here are a few scenarios I have seen as well as how OverOps could have helped us. Dat ..read more

Things Are Changing Quickly – How Do You Keep Pace? Over the past few years, we have experienced a shift in the way we deliver applications. We are being forced to innovate faster and deliver higher quality software more frequently. Applications are now commonly built on microservices and using Kubernetes. In response to this, the way we approach the design and delivery of software has changed. Most would identify the cloud as a main component of this change. While that’s true, let’s dig deeper. The most impactful change is the application of supply chain concepts to software. We have created ..read more

Per Forbes, the distributed workforce is here to stay. Over half of Americans now work either full-time or part-time from somewhere that isn’t an office. We can only expect that number to keep growing, and while other countries haven’t jumped into fully remote work quite as quickly as the United States, the global trends are undoubtedly headed in the same direction.  But with a distributed workforce comes communication challenges, and 2020 certainly taught us a lot about what works and what doesn’t for keeping DevOps teams aligned and functioning when everyone is working from different lo ..read more

As the general population becomes more app-savvy and less patient, app performance has become a major issue for any company needing to keep the customer’s attention.  Need statistical proof? 47% of consumers expect a page to load in two seconds or less, and 40% will abandon a website that takes more than three seconds to load. Three seconds is of course an eternity in the age of 5G and IoT. A LOT can happen in those three seconds. The problem is that for a lot of companies, not ENOUGH is happening in those three seconds because the application is getting stalled by things that should have ..read more
