Top 5 Books to Learn Grails Framework for Java and Groovy Developers.

Earlier, I have shared some of the must-read Groovy books and today, I'll share some of the best books to learn Grails for Java developers. Grails is a web application development framework completely written in Groovy. The Grails and Gradle framework are built using Groovy language. Grails is the framework to develop a web application using Groovy. The concepts within Grails, like interceptors, tag libs, and Groovy Server Pages (GSP) are very similar to what we have in Java. You'll be amazed at how quickly you can have a first-class web application up and running from ground zero. Grails includes everything you need in a single zip file on a web server (Jetty), a database (HSQLDB), Spring, Hibernate, even a Groovy version of Ant called GANT.

3 Books to learn Java from Scratch in 2018 - Best of Lot Must Read

I receive half a dozen emails every day asking about which is the best to learn Java from scratch? Which book should I read in 2018 to learn Java? or Which is the best Java for beginners? When I receive such email, before giving my recommendation I ask two questions, first do you have any programming experience? e.g. Are you coming from C, C++ or Python background? Or you are a fresher with no experience in programming, just a couple of classes on data structure and algorithm and operating system on college. If the guy some prior experience I recommend him the book like Core Java for the Impatient which teaches basics of Java programming language and API and also how to use Java in right way.

3 Ways to Convert String to Short in Java - Example Tutorial

In last a couple of examples, I have taught you how to convert String to Integer, Long, Double, Float, Boolean, and Byte in Java and today I will show you how to convert String to Short in Java, but before that let's revise what is short data type in Java. The short is an integral data type similar to the int but it only takes 2 bytes to store data as compared to 4 bytes required by an int variable. Since it takes only 2 bytes or 16 bits to store data, the range of short is also shorter than int. It ranges from -32,768 to 32767 (inclusive) or -2^15 to 2^15 -1. You might be wondering why upper bound is 255 and lower bound is -256 but that's because we have included zero in between.
