ultimate-stress: simple and fast stress-test framework

This post is about stress test framework mainly for java projects but can easily be used for others (from any machine with java7+), as there is a support for http requests with template engine out-of-box.

Algorithms and Data Structures of JDK 7

While checking periodically if there is one or another standard algorithm in JDK I've decided to make such index. It was also interesting why some famous data structures or algs are included in and others - not.
A format of this survey is only about key properties and features of algorithms and data structures of JDK, all details and full description - you can easily find in javadoc or jdk sources.
Let's start from simple to complex!

2 days of integration of osgi, hadoop and hbase

Spent almost 2 days trying to connect to local hbase from OSGI.
The problem is that hbase client uses hadoop which had this bug when run in containers (osgi, tomcat etc).
Bug tracker guys finally submit a fix to legacy 0.23 branch with fix, so I tried it, but it failed with source/api incompatibility (this issue):
java.lang.NoSuchMethodError: org.apache.hadoop.net.NetUtils.getInputStream(Ljava/net/Socket;)Ljava/io/InputStream;
    at org.apache.hadoop.hbase.ipc.HBaseClient$Connection.setupIOstreams(HBaseClient.java:363)
    at org.apache.hadoop.hbase.ipc.HBaseClient.getConnection(HBaseClient.java:1046)

What I've found in the sources is that - hbase calls this static method
public static java.io.InputStream getInputStream(Socket socket) throws IOException
but 0.23.x branch latest version has this
public static org.apache.hadoop.net.SocketInputWrapper getInputStream(java.net.Socket socket) throws java.io.IOException

Do you see the issue? I don't yet. Normally the second can be used in any place where the fist does... But still it fails either due to OSGI some classloading issue or some implicit hbase/hadoop integration issues, I'm not clear on this yet.

What could I do?
I tried orderly downgrading from 0.23.7 to 0.23.1 (just in case), and fortunately 0.23.1 - worked! It has the same static signiture.

So, if you need to connect to hbase from osgi - you'll have to downgrade required hadoop libs to 0.23.1. Seems there is yet another annoying OSGI-specific bug.

SUMMARY: you can add frameworks and components to your java app just adding their dependencies if you don't have OSGI... because otherwise you'll be dancing with tambourines for days and hacking to get it working!

смотреть всем

особенно т.н. "архитекторам" и product/project-менеджерам... особенно в банках или госструктурах.

p.s. конечно автор местами перегибает для красного словца, но в целом все по делу, из реального опыта, я видел подобный ад чуть ли не во всех местах где работал.

unique escaping of ' in shell

if you need to escape single quote in a bash script, e.g. in bashrc:
alias='cool command with ' inside'
- you must replace it with '"'"'
alias='cool command with '"'"' inside'

p.s. explanation.
