Network applications must handle events intelligently and efficiently, establish priorities, resolve conflicts, and manage resources to avoid blocks, dropouts, and the other jams that occur in high-traffic environments. Netty is a Java-based networking framework designed to handle asynchronous network events smoothly so applications are easy to write and maintain. Netty in Action introduces the Netty framework and shows how to incorporate it into Java network applications. Readers will learn to write highly-scalable applications without the need to dive into the low-level non-blocking APIs at the core of Java. They'll learn how to think in an asynchronous way and master the best practices of large-scale networks apps while working through numerous hands-on examples.

Summary Docker in Action teaches readers how to create, deploy, and manage applications hosted in Docker containers. Purchase of the print book includes a free eBook in PDF, Kindle, and ePub formats from Manning Publications. About the Technology The idea behind Docker is simple. Create a tiny virtual environment, called a container, that holds just your application and its dependencies. The Docker engine uses the host operating system to build and account for these containers. They are easy to install, manage, and remove. Applications running inside containers share resources, making their footprints small. About the Book Docker in Action teaches readers how to create, deploy, and manage applications hosted in Docker containers. After starting with a clear explanation of the Docker model, you will learn how to package applications in containers, including techniques for testing and distributing applications. You will also learn how to run programs securely and how to manage shared resources. Using carefully designed examples, the book teaches you how to orchestrate containers and applications from installation to removal. Along the way, you'll discover techniques for using Docker on systems ranging from dev-and-test machines to full-scale cloud deployments. What's Inside Packaging containers for deployment Installing, managing, and removing containers Working with Docker images Distributing with DockerHub About the Reader Readers need only have a working knowledge of the Linux OS.

The java New I/O (NIO) packages in J2SE 1.4 introduce many new, indispensable features previously unavailable to Java programmers. These include APIs for high-performance I/O operations, regular expression processing, and character set coding. These new libraries are a treasure trove for java developers. The NIO APIs are especially valuable where high-performance I/O is a requirement, but they can also be useful in a wide range of scenarios. The new APIs let you work directly with I/O buffers, multiplex nonblocking streams, do scattering reads and gathering writes, do channel-to-channel transfers, work with memory-mapped files, manage file locks, and much more. The new high-performance Regular Expression Library provides sophisticated, Perl-like regex-processing features such as pattern matching, search and replace, capture groups, look ahead assertions, and many others. The Charset API gives you complete control over character set encoding and decoding, which are vital for properly managing the exchange of documents on the Web, for localization, or for other purposes. You can also create and install your own custom character sets. Staying current with the latent java technology is never easy. NIO, new in Java 1.4, is quite possibly the most important new java feature since Swing. Understanding it thoroughly is essential for any serious Java developer. NIO closes the gap between java and natively compiled languages and enables java applications to achieve maximum I/O performance by effectively leveraging operating-system services in a portable way. Java NIO is a comprehensive guide to the java New I/O facilities. It lots you take full advantage of NIO features and shows you how they work, what they can do for you, and when you should use them. This book brings you up to speed on NIO and shows you how to bring your I/O-bound Java applications up to speed as well. Java NIO is an essential part of any Java professional's library.

Many of the normal concerns faced by application developers are amplified by the challenges of web-scale concurrency, real-time performance expectations, multi-core support, and efficiently consuming services without constantly managing I/O blocks. Although it's possible to solve most of these issues with existing languages and frameworks, Go is designed to handle them right out of the box, making for a more natural and productive coding experience. Developed at Google for its own internal use, Go now powers dozens of nimble startups, along with name brands like Canonical, Heroku, SoundCloud, and Mozilla, who rely on highly performant services for their infrastructure. Go in Action introduces the unique features and concepts of the Go language, guiding readers from inquisitive developers to Go gurus. It provides hands-on experience with writing real-world applications including web sites and network servers, as well as techniques to manipulate and convert data at incredibly high speeds. It also goes in-depth with the language and explains the tricks and secrets that the Go masters are using to make their applications perform. For example, it looks at Go's powerful reflection libraries and uses real-world examples of integration with C code.

How the Famous Sell Us Elixirs of Health, Beauty & Happiness
Author: Timothy Caulfield
Publisher: Beacon Press
"An exploration of the effect our celebrity-dominated culture has on our ideas of living the good life Our perceptions of beauty, health, success, and happiness are framed by a popular culture that is increasingly disconnected from reality. This isn't just a hyperbolic assertion. Research tells us that our health decisions and goals are influenced by both celebrity culture and celebrity endorsements, that our children's ambitions are now overwhelmingly governed by the fantasy of fame, and that our ideals of beauty and success are mediated through a celebrity-dominated worldview. The celebrity brand is at once the most desired state of being (modern-day royalty!) and one of the most socially problematic. Health law and policy researcher Timothy Caulfield provides a fun look into the celebrity world, including interesting facts and anecdotes, as well as a boatload of practical and evidence-based advice on everything from diet, skin care, and colon cleanses to detoxing from our celebrity ambitions. Caulfield tries out for American Idol, has a professional makeover, and endures the Gwyneth Paltrow-endorsed cleanse in this thoroughly unique, engaging, and provocative book"--
