How to Handle the UnsatisfiedLinkError Runtime Error in Java

24-Jan-22   |   By Rollbar   |   In Rollbar , Development
Rollbar

A native library is a library containing code compiled for a specific (native) architecture. There are certain scenarios like hardware-software integrations and process optimizations where using libraries written for different platforms can be very useful or even necessary. For this purpose, Java provides the Java Native Interface (JNI), which allows Java code that runs inside a Java Virtual Machine (JVM) to interoperate with applications and libraries written in other programming languages, such as C, C++, and assembly. The JNI enables Java code to call and be called by native applications and libraries written in other languages and it enables programmers to write native methods to handle situations where an application cannot be written entirely in Java .

Threads are a basic concept in concurrent and parallel programming . They allow programs to do multiple things at the same time and are often used for performing computationally intensive tasks in the background without interrupting the main program. This is accomplished through multithreading, a common programming and execution model which allows multiple threads to exist within the context of one process. These threads share resources but are able to execute independently.

3 mindset shifts to succeed with test automation

24-Jan-22   |   By Daniel Burns   |   In Xray , Automation
Xray

Test Automation is a necessary precondition for high-quality modern development. Testing and test automation must be integrated into the software delivery processes to give the team the right level of feedback, at the right time, and to ensure high-quality software. One of the biggest challenges of building a test automation framework that works on a long-term, scalable basis, is that it requires fundamentally different conditions compared to a predominantly manual testing approach.

How to Fix The IllegalStateException in Java

24-Jan-22   |   By Rollbar   |   In Rollbar , Development
Rollbar

An IllegalStateException is a runtime exception in Java that is thrown to indicate that a method has been invoked at the wrong time. This exception is used to signal that a method is called at an illegal or inappropriate time. For example, once a thread has been started, it is not allowed to restart the same thread again. If such an operation is performed, the IllegalStateException is thrown. Since the IllegalStateException is an unchecked exception, it does not need to be declared in the throws clause of a method or constructor.

Data sharing isn't optional this year - its essential

21-Jan-22   |   By Team ThoughtSpot   |   In ThoughtSpot , Analytics
ThoughtSpot

The concept that data is critical to an organization's growth is nothing new. As digital transformation takes every industry by storm, however, the types and sources of data have rapidly evolved. Relying simply on proprietary data is blinding at best. Over the last few years, innovative companies have raced to tap into new sources — often those they don’t own. External data like weather, jobs reports, and social media are already being leveraged to better understand customer behavior and optimize supply chains.

Visual Regression Testing: 5 Best Tools to Catch Visual Bugs

21-Jan-22   |   By AJ Funk   |   In Rainforest , Regression Testing
Rainforest

Automated visual regression testing tools check for style issues and problems with the visual layer of an app or website. The benefit of these tools is that they can catch issues on the visual layer (the user interface of the website or app, which customers see) that may get missed by test scripts that only interact with the underlying code (the DOM). Common visual regressions include things like overlapping modules, hidden buttons, elements that render off-screen, brand styles reverting to old versions, and a host of minor or major CSS issues that can get missed by both human QA testers and automation scripts.
