    Umgebungsvariablen in Java verwenden Arbeiten mit Umgebungsvariablen in Java

    Umgebungsvariablen sind eine hervorragende Möglichkeit, Java-Anwendungen zu konfigurieren, ohne Einstellungen explizit in Code speichern zu müssen, z. B. für Datenbank- und Caching-Server oder für APIs von Drittanbietern.

    Solche Einstellungen außerhalb des Codes vorzunehmen hat mehrere eindeutige Vorteile:

    • Bei Änderungen der Einstellungen muss der Code nicht aktualisiert und erneut kompiliert werden.
    • Die Offenlegung sensibler Anmeldeinformationen wie Benutzernamen und Passwörter sowie von Tokens wird verhindert.
    • Derselbe Code kann in mehreren Umgebungen bereitgestellt werden.

    In diesem kurzen Artikel werde ich Ihnen einige der Möglichkeiten zeigen, wie Sie mit Umgebungsvariablen in Java arbeiten können.

    Zugriff auf Umgebungsvariablen in Java

    Eine der häufigsten Methoden ist die Verwendung von System.getenv(), die ein optionales Argument des Typs String akzeptiert. Je nachdem, ob ein Argument des Typs Stringübergeben wird, werden unterschiedliche Werte von der Methode zurückgegeben. Genauer:

    Wenn ein String übergeben wird und er mit einem Schlüssel in der Map der internen Umgebung übereinstimmt, wird dessen …

    Get to Know Java SDKs and Libraries Copy of TwilioQuest  Blog Headers  1200X628 (1).png

    This post is a part of a series that supports an expanded adventure, as of May 2022, in TwilioQuest, but it will be relevant to anyone curious about Java Libraries. Happy reading!

    Ahoy, operator. Congratulations on gaining acceptance into the Arcane Academy of API Arts. I’m Professor Taifa Omar Warsame, head of House Turing. In House Turing, we believe that code is for people. If code isn’t human centered - if it’s not helping people have fun, work smarter, or live better, it’s not that interesting. That’s why, in House Turing, we love SDKs and helper libraries. They help make working with APIs easier and more readable for the humans behind the code.

    For creatives such as myself, writing code can be a form of art and expression. It's another medium to bring ideas to life, whether it be a data visualization or small click based game …

    How to Set Up and Deploy a Java Spring Boot Application header - How to Set Up and Deploy a Java Spring Boot Application

    It might seem intimidating to build projects using Java especially when it seems confusing to know how to start and set up. Fortunately, using the Spring Boot and ngrok tools will reassure you that writing code for Java applications can be fast and seamless.

    Spring Boot reduces the problem of figuring out how to structure the project hierarchy and provides sufficient documentation for developers to create standalone applications without relying on external web servers.

    Many articles on the Twilio blog utilize ngrok, a localhost tunneling tool that exposes webhooks on public URLs that can be reached by Twilio. The excellent ngrok tool is also used to generate temporary public URLs for your development web server.

    In this article, you will learn how to set up a Java Spring Boot application and create a tunnel from a URL on the ngrok.io domain to the local application running on your computer. …

    How to Write Custom Queries Using JdbcTemplate In Spring Boot header - How to Write Custom Queries Using JdbcTemplate In Spring Boot

    When developing applications it is crucial for a developer to understand the abstractions behind the libraries that are used in the application. This will help the developer understand the code better and assist them in writing efficient applications.

    In this tutorial, you will learn how to write custom queries using JdbcTemplate which is a wrapper class for writing row JDBC queries. There are other implementations that are much more convenient than JdbcTemplate such as Hibernate and the Java Persistence API (JPA) because these API’s hide the actual implementations from the developer and only expose the necessary details such as the methods to insert, update and delete records from your database.

    When you decide to use JdbcTemplate as opposed to Hibernate and the Java Persistence API you are prone to have boilerplate code in your application. The benefit of using JdbcTemplate is that it provides low level access to your queries …

    How to Write Effective Unit Tests in Java header - How to Write Effective Unit Tests in Java

    In the early years of my career, getting started with testing my code felt like trying to break through a brick wall. To hopefully make your experience less painful, here is an attempt at the introduction I was given to this important topic.

    In this article, you will learn how to write code which is easily testable and how to test it using a single tool: JUnit 5.


    • Java Development Kit (JDK) version 8 or newer.
    • JUnit 5.8.2 (though most versions of JUnit 5 should work).
    • An IDE with JUnit integration is recommended, such as Eclipse, Intellij IDEA, Android Studio, NetBeans. This article will make references to IntelliJ IDEA.
    • A build tool is recommended, such as Gradle or Maven to manage the JUnit 5 dependency.

    Why You Should Care About Testing

    Anytime you write application code that is deployed and used, it is being tested. Whether you …

    もうずいぶん前からTwilioのREST APIを使用していますが、HTTPでクライアントとサーバー間の通信を確立する際にREST APIがどのように使用されているかを見るといつも驚きます。APIを呼び出すと、サーバーが呼び出されます。次に、サーバーがビジネスロジック全体を実行し、結果を返します。

    自分でAPIを作成できるように、これらのAPIがどのように開発されているかを常に知りたいと思っていました。これが分かれば、Spring Bootなどのさまざまなフレームワークを探求できます。そこで、Spring Bootを使用してREST APIを開発し、初心者がSpring Bootを使い始めるのに役立つこのチュートリアルを作成することにしました。

    このチュートリアルでは、Spring BootでREST APIを開発し、従業員データベースでCRUD操作を実行する方法をご紹介します。


    • Javaに関する予備知識または学習意欲。
    • Java Development Kit(JDK)バージョン8以降。
    • Maven 3.3以降
    • MySQL。MySQLで従業員データを保存し、REST APIでアプリケーションにアクセスします。MySQLの設定をWorkbenchで行う手順については、ガイドに従ってください。
