Adt4j: Algebraic Data Types for Java

This library implements Algebraic Data Types for Java. ADT4J provides annotation processor for @GenerateValueClassForVisitor annotation. ADT4J generates new class for each @GenerateValueClassForVisitor annotation.

It allows you to easily define custom data types. Like this:

// Define Expression data type
@WrapsGeneratedValueClass(visitor = ExpressionVisitor.class)
// ExpressionBase class will be automatically generated by annotation processor
// You can use any other name instead of ExpressionBase, like VeryLongNameThatYouShouldNeverActuallyUse
class Expression extends ExpressionBase {
  public static void main(String[] args) {
    // Static constructor methods are automatically generated for Expression class
    Expression e = mul(sum(lit(5), lit(1)), lit(2));

    // Reasonable default toString implementation is provided:
    System.out.println(e + " = " + e.eval());

  // This is the required boilerplate for wrapper-class
  Expression(ExpressionBase base) {

  // Example of "pattern-matching"
  int eval() {
    return accept(new ExpressionVisitor<Integer>() {
      Integer lit(int i) {
        return i;
      Integer sum(Expression e1, Expression e2) {
        return e1.eval() + e2.eval();
      Integer mul(Expression e1, Expression e2) {
        return e1.eval() * e2.eval();

  // Actual data-type definition
  // Data type is recursive. No special treatment of recursive definition is required.
  @GenerateValueClassForVisitor(wrapperClass = Expression.class)
  interface ExpressionVisitor<R> {
    @GeneratePredicate(name = "isLiteral");
    R lit(int i);

    R sum(@Getter(name = "leftOperand") Expression e1, @Getter(name = "rightOperand") Expression e2);
    R mul(@Getter(name = "leftOperand") Expression e1, @Getter(name = "rightOperand") Expression e2);



  • Support recursive data types
  • Generate hashCode, equals and toString implementations with value semantics
  • Generate predicates, getters and "updaters" with additional annotations
  • Fully customizable API: custom names and access levels for generated methods
  • Optionally generate Comparable implementation with precise compile-time type-check if it is possible
  • Optionally generate serializable classes with precise compile-time type-check if it is possible
  • Sensible error messages
  • Support generated class extention through standard Java's inheritance.
  • Reasonably fast

Known Issues

maven-compiler-plugin version 3.2 and later doesn't work nicely with annotation processors, see MCOMPILER-235. Only clean builds work. Repeated compilation causes duplicate class errors.

It is possible to support explicit recursive data-types definitions without selfReferenceVariableName hack, but javac bug prevents it from working. It works when no type-parameters are used, see [ example](


Use maven dependency to use ADT4J:


You can use adt4j-shaded artifact to simplify deployment and to avoid dependencies' conflicts. adt4j-shaded has no dependencies and does not pollute classpath. All java-packages provided by adt4j-shaded are rooted at com.github.sviperll.adt4j package.



See NEWS file.


See Tutorial


$ git clone
$ cd adt4j
$ mvn test

Check for errors and warnings.

ADT4J is built to be compatible with Java 7. See universal-maven-parent project's documentation for instructions about building projects compatible with JDK7.

How to Install OpenJDK 11 on CentOS 8

What is OpenJDK?

OpenJDk or Open Java Development Kit is a free, open-source framework of the Java Platform, Standard Edition (or Java SE). It contains the virtual machine, the Java Class Library, and the Java compiler. The difference between the Oracle OpenJDK and Oracle JDK is that OpenJDK is a source code reference point for the open-source model. Simultaneously, the Oracle JDK is a continuation or advanced model of the OpenJDK, which is not open source and requires a license to use.

In this article, we will be installing OpenJDK on Centos 8.

Your Data Architecture: Simple Best Practices for Your Data Strategy

If you accumulate data on which you base your decision-making as an organization, you should probably think about your data architecture and possible best practices.

If you accumulate data on which you base your decision-making as an organization, you most probably need to think about your data architecture and consider possible best practices. Gaining a competitive edge, remaining customer-centric to the greatest extent possible, and streamlining processes to get on-the-button outcomes can all be traced back to an organization’s capacity to build a future-ready data architecture.

In what follows, we offer a short overview of the overarching capabilities of data architecture. These include user-centricity, elasticity, robustness, and the capacity to ensure the seamless flow of data at all times. Added to these are automation enablement, plus security and data governance considerations. These points from our checklist for what we perceive to be an anticipatory analytics ecosystem.

Getting Started With Data Lakes

Frameworks for Efficient Enterprise Analytics

The opportunities big data offers also come with very real challenges that many organizations are facing today. Often, it’s finding the most cost-effective, scalable way to store and process boundless volumes of data in multiple formats that come from a growing number of sources. Then organizations need the analytical capabilities and flexibility to turn this data into insights that can meet their specific business objectives.

This Refcard dives into how a data lake helps tackle these challenges at both ends — from its enhanced architecture that’s designed for efficient data ingestion, storage, and management to its advanced analytics functionality and performance flexibility. You’ll also explore key benefits and common use cases.


As technology continues to evolve with new data sources, such as IoT sensors and social media churning out large volumes of data, there has never been a better time to discuss the possibilities and challenges of managing such data for varying analytical insights. In this Refcard, we dig deep into how data lakes solve the problem of storing and processing enormous amounts of data. While doing so, we also explore the benefits of data lakes, their use cases, and how they differ from data warehouses (DWHs).

This is a preview of the Getting Started With Data Lakes Refcard. To read the entire Refcard, please download the PDF from the link above.

Data Types in Java: Primitive & Non-Primitive Data Types


In any programming language, a data type is an ascribe of data that lets the computer or compiler know how the programmers want to assign the data. A data type adds a restriction to the variables or a function while assigning values.

These data types define the behavior of data like the way values of that type can be stored and operations that can be done on data. Let’s have a look at all the data types provided by java.
