Java Magazine
Read them, reread them, share them.

Week of February 8, 2021
Did you read the one about records? The article about code review antipatterns? Elasticsearch? How about the listing of the 25 greatest Java applications ever written—from Minecraft to the US National Security Agency’s Ghidra? Lambda expressions, anyone?

These 10 stories were the most widely read last year. We hope you will enjoy revisiting the best of 2020.

Take care,
Alan Zeichick
