Microservices! They are everywhere, or at least, the term is. When should you use a microservice architecture? What factors should be considered when making that decision? Do the benefits outweigh the costs? Why is everyone so excited about them, anyway?  Brought to you in partnership with IBM.


This is a very interesting discussion. How to reference default methods from implemented interfaces throughout the class / interface hierarchy?

Situation:

interface K {
  int m() default { return 88; }
}

interface J extends K {
  int m() default { return K.super.m(); }
                        // ^^^^^^^^^^^^ How to express this?
}

Solution ideas:

  • K.super.m()
  • super.K.m()
  • ((K) super).m()
  • K::m()
  • K.default.m()
  • super<K>.m()
  • super(K).m()
  • super(K.class).m()
  • super[K].m()

Any other crazy ideas? See the discussion here:
