I have been happy lately to see the progress in Functional Java. A project truly arrives when it becomes the inspiration for other clever ideas. Witness Lazy Error Handling in Java, Part 1: The Thrower Functor.
Every few days comes another fun bit of functional programming creeping its way in to my workaday language, Java. Current wish list item: the
fj team deploys to a public Maven repository so I can just say:
<dependency> <groupId>fj</groupId> <artifactId>functionaljava</artifactId> <version>2.8</version> </dependency>
UPDATE: This just gets more interesting: Lazy Error Handling in Java, Part 2: Thrower is a Monad and Lazy Error Handling in Java, Part 3: Throwing Away Throws.
