Search Everywhere is a little gem in IntelliJ IDEA and all its features are yet to be discovered ;)
A great report on Java Tools and Technologies, aka JavaTnT :), was published just recently. As usual, one may say that those is a "biased" numbers. Well, the numbers might be biased. But it is not really clear, the bias agains/towards what?
There are discussions at Reddit and Hackernews about the report. Some would say that the numbers are legit. Some would say that the numbers do not make sense. Of course, the numbers do not make sense if you don't like them ;)
In any case, the results present the JavaTnT landscape pretty well. It would be nice if more people would care to enter their data during the survey instead of arguing about the numbers afterwards. Oh well.. first world problems :)

I was tinkering with Java 8 lambdas just lately. It happened to be an early morning on a bus from Tallinn to Tartu and I probably didn't sleep enough the night before. So I managed to puzzle myself with this little piece of code:
I actually expected it to print "Hello, lambda!" when executed, but it didn't. Can you figure out why? This is a very simple puzzler, and a very silly mistake that I did. I shouldn't have used the method reference to initialize the runner variable of RunForrestRun class. However, while the example is very simple, it actually shows that the new features do bring some accidental complexity into the language.
