Microbenchmarks with JMH / Java Microbenchmark Harness

Monday, October 2nd, 2017

Writing microbenchmarks for parts of our applications is not always easy – especially when the internals of the virtual machine, the just-in-time-compiler and such things are coming into effect.

Java Microbenchmark Harness is a tool that takes care of creating JVM warmup-cycles, handling benchmark-input-parameters and running benchmarks as isolated processes etc.

Now following a few short examples for writing microbenchmarks with JMH.

Object Graph Mapping by Example with Neo4j OGM and Java

Monday, July 18th, 2016

When integrating a Neo4j database into a Java application a developer often needs to map nodes and edges of the graph to corresponding Java classes of the domain model.

Neo4j OGM eases this work and allows us to map our domain objects to the graph database using simple annotations – similar to the Java Persistence API (JPA) for relational database management systems.

In the following tutorial I’d like to demonstrate how to use Neo4j OGM to build a simple train timetable planner and a permission system mapping between graph, nodes, edges and POJOs.
