Java Weekly: April Fools Edition

Normally, I am using the Java Weekly series to collect the most interesting Java related links. But today I prepared a special April Fool Edition for you. I hope you enjoy it.

Researchers at the CERN institute discovered the first evidence for the Force. They also found several practical applications for it, like influencing minds, lifting heavy things or reheating coffee.

Neo Technology announced the newest generation of their graph database with codename "Matrix". This revolutionary software massively improves the capabilities of existing graph databases and is now able to process partial and full braindumps of live subjects. I can't wait to give this database a try!

The jOOQ engineering team identified backwards-compatibility issues with Java Generics and decided to rewrite their API. They will now introduce Generic Generic Types to avoid similar problems in the future.

The people from ZeroTurnaround had a look at the way we are currently storing information and found lots of 0 bits in the binary representation. As it is really inefficient to keep so many worthless bits, they implemented a new compression algorithm and released it as their new tool: ZipRebel. The algorithm provides impressive results and allows you to download the whole internet within milliseconds.

Do you know the impact of cosmic energy on your Scrum team?
I mean, it's pretty obvious, that changes in the constellation will affect the events happening to a Scrum team. So better read the Scrum horrorscopes for sprint 7, 2015 and adapt accordingly.

Do you like PacMan? Than visit Google Maps and click on the PacMan image at the bottom left to use the streets of a given location for a game.

But that is not the only April Fool by Google. They also introduced the new website Guess what you see there ;)

All of us have been waiting for it and now Microsoft has finally done it: They launched MS-DOS Mobile! But there is one huge downside, it is especially designed for Lumia smartphones. Lets hope that they adapt it to other devices so that all of us can use it in the future.

See you next Monday

for the next (real) issue of Java Weekly and follow me on twitter, where I share great Java resources during the week.

Did I miss a great April Fools? Please post the link in the comments.
