SpecsFor - Better Partial Matching for Dates

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
I just shipped a small update to SpecsFor that improves the partial-matching story when dealing with dates. Prior to this update, if you wanted to see if a DateTime value was “near” the current time, you had to do something like this: obj.ShouldLookLike(() => new TestObject { DateTimeValue = Some.ValueInRange(DateTime.Now.AddSeconds(-1), DateTime.Now) }) With version 4.3.2 though, you can now use the new Some.DateTimeNear method: obj.ShouldLookLike(() => new TestObject { DateTimeValue = Some.DateTimeNear(DateTime.Now) }) By default, any value within 1 second of the specified time will match, but you can adjust that globally by changing Some.DefaultDateTimeTolerance to
another value. It’s a small change, but I think it helps the spec convey its intent much more cleanly. Enjoy!...(Read whole news on source site)

The Visual Studio Partner Ecosystem

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
One of the unique values Visual Studio provides is that over and above the built-in features we have a multitude of extensions to address various niche development scenarios. These extensions are provided by our strong partner ecosystem. The Visual Studio Partner Ecosystem is the strongest it has ever been in the history of Visual Studio. This year we are excited to share that over 1100 partners have created tools and extensions that integrate with Visual Studio 2015, Team Foundation Server, and Visual Studio Online. For Visual Studio 2015 RTM release itself we have 84 launch partners
that have made new versions of their products available on the day that VS 2015 was released. Want to join in? Check out the VSIP Partner Program for info on how to join. Not only do these extensions work with VS 2015 Enterprise and Professional, but you can also use all extensions with our free offering - Visual Studio Community. Get started with an extension from the Visual Studio Gallery. Interested in writing your own extensions? It’s really simple to do so. Whether you’re interested in adding support for a new language, extending the Visual Studio interface, connecting a service...(Read whole news on source site)

Java's Unsafe class: "There is certainly also a way without it!" - JAXenter

There are numerous libraries, e.g. Netty, which use Unsafe internally
(using the previously described reflection hacks). In lots of cases this
isn’t even documented! Some projects also use special libraries as a
replacement for features appearing in later Java versions (javax
packages). One example is LongAdder, which is only part of Java 8’s java.util.concurrent classes.
