Hi Jeff,

Are you finding JSON to be the preferred format for transmitting data in the industry over XML?

Thanks.
Hi Ben and David,

Does Java in a Nutshell include code examples readers can download to follow along while reading the book?

Hi Peggy,

When should a Java class have an interface? Should all classes ideally have interfaces?

Thanks!

Hi,

I'm one of the winners for Book Promo Winner - Microservices in Action - Tuesday, December 18 2018. I noticed the status on the Book Promotions page is still on 'waiting for winner info'. I was just wondering if they were sent in.

Thanks!

Hi Brian,

The contents of your book look really interesting. They look like concepts that could be applied for all development, not just Python. Is that true, or is it mostly recommended for Python developers?

Thanks!

Hi,

I just wanted to point out that when I go to this link
https://coderanch.com/wiki/689164/Book-Promotions-Winners

and click on See our BookPromotions2018Winners link, it actually takes you to the 2017 list. Can someone update this so we can see the 2018 list?

Thanks!

Electron appears to be a multi-platform framework to develop desktop applications. You use web technologies like JavaScript, HTML, and CSS to develop. This is new to me too. I'm hoping someone else can elaborate further.
Hi Morgan and Paulo,

I noticed chapter 7 in the book is called "Building a reusable microservice framework". Do you actually get to develop a microservice framework from scratch? I just thought that sounded really neat.

Thanks,
Carl

Hi Craig,

I've never used Spring or Sprint Boot, but I have Grails experience. Is any part of Spring similar to other server side MVC frameworks like Grails, Rails, etc as far as initial setup and convention?

Thanks!

I was wondering if I can deploy an Android app I develop to my own phone, without putting it up on the Google Play Store and paying for A Google developer account. Thanks.

Hi Campbell,

Thank you for your reply. I should have mentioned how I'm installing them. I'm FTP-ing tar.gz files for each to the Linux environment, I'm not using the package manager. Should I still put them in /usr/bin? Thanks.

I have my Tomcat and Java installation in /opt but to be honest I don't really understand the Linux directories. I know I can technically get them to work almost anywhere. However, I would like to stick to convention. Where would these typically be installed? If it helps, only one user and root should be able to modify them. This server's only reason for existence is to run a Java application.

FYI this is cross-post from Reddit. No one replied at the time of this new thread. https://www.reddit.com/r/linux4noobs/comments/9up9ja/logical_directory_to_install_tomcat_and_jdk_on/

Thanks.
