Let's Code Jumi #283: Launcher Actors (Part 1)

The code which sends the startup command to the daemon is from the original walking skeleton and not unit tested, which makes it hard to modify. This part must be re-designed before we can add support for a second command - the shutdown command.

Let's Code Jumi #281: Process Liveliness (Part 1)

Let's Code Jumi #274: Command Line Arguments (Part 1)

Next I will want to get the shutting down of the daemon process from walking skeleton quality to production quality. To get a feel for the code in that area, let's start with something easy - command line parsing.

Let's Code Jumi #268: Concurrency Bug (Part 1)

Though it had not yet bitten me, I realized that WorkerCounter has a concurrency bug that could cause two onAllWorkersFinished events being fired. Let's try to find a more reliable design...

Let's Code Jumi #267: Continuous Delivery

Doing the first release of the Jumi Actors library. I will explain my deployment pipeline for implementing Continuous Delivery to deploy Maven artifacts into Maven Central using Go and Sonatype OSSRH.

Let's Code Jumi #264: Custom POM Properties (Part 1)

Maven includes in every JAR a pom.properties file which contains the artifact's groupId, artifactId and version. I would like to include there also Git's revision ID. Unfortunately maven-jar-plugin's pomPropertiesFile option is broken and we need a workaround.

Let's Code Jumi #251: Stopping Actor Threads (Part 1)

Jumi has not yet needed support for stopping actor threads (it just exits the whole JVM), but for the Jumi Actors library to be general-purpose, there should be a way to release resources.

Let's Code Jumi #228: MonitoredExecutor (Part 1)

If we create an Executor which notifies when it has finished executing its commands, that should help in getting rid of Actors.startUnattendedWorker() and the numerous callbacks of the old WorkerCounter.

Let's Code Jumi #225: Decoupled Actor Threads (Part 1)

Creating an actor used to be coupled with creating its thread (or reusing the current thread). By separating those operations we can unify "primary" and "secondary" actors, making the actors much simpler to use.

Let's Code Jumi #222: Unified Actors (Part 1)

By unifying the processing of "primary" and "secondary" actors, the internal design can be improved considerably, and later we can get rid of those two different actor categories completely.

Let's Code Jumi #220: ActorRef (Part 1)

The Jumi Actors library can be made easier and safer to use by introducing a reference class, a bit like in Akka Actors. This is the first step for a bunch of design improvements to the actors library.

Let's Code Jumi #214: Misc Refactoring (Part 1)

Some small refactorings. A nice feature in IntelliJ IDEA is "Analyze | Run Inspection by Name" which lets you apply a quickfix with one command for all found problems in the whole project - in this case adding missing @Override annotations.

Let's Code Jumi #210: Isolated Tests

When I rewrote TestClassRunnerTest and SuiteRunnerTest in specification style, I left behind tests which were not isolated - they were checking more things than just the one thing they were interested in. I figured out a way to write them better.
