collections


Even though

private List synchList = Collections.synchronizedList(new LinkedList());

is thread safe, serialize sync List is NOT thread safe for sure. The story is, if you only synchronized the collection, and if we try to get the iterator in concurrent access environment, it will throws currencymodificationexception .

For collection is small, may be making defensive copy http://www.javapractices.com/Topic15.cjp is good. Otherwise, in java5, there is concurrency collection.

scalability


There are two key primary ways of scaling web applications which is in practice today.
1) “Vertical Scalability” - Adding resource within the same logical unit to increase capacity. An example of this would be to add CPUs to an existing server, or expanding storage by adding hard drive on an existing RAID/SAN storage.
2) “Horizontal Scalability” - Adding multiple logical units of resources and making them work as a single unit. Most clustering solutions, distributed file systems, load-balancers help you with horizontal scalability.

Scalability can be further sub-classified based on the “scalability factor”.
1) If the scalability factor stays constant as you scale. This is called “linear scalability“.
2) But chances are that some components may not scale as well as others. A scalability factor below 1.0 is called “sub-linear scalability“.
3) Though rare, its possible to get better performance (scalability factor) just by adding more components (i/o across multiple disk spindles in a RAID gets better with more spindles). This is called “supra-linear scalability“.
4) If the application is not designed for scalability, its possible that things can actually get worse as it scales. This is called “negative scalability“.

Brian Zimmer, architect at travel startup Yapta, highlights some worst practices jeopardizing the growth and scalability of a system:
* The Golden Hammer. Forcing a particular technology to work in ways it was not intended is sometimes counter-productive. Using a database to store key-value pairs is one example. Another example is using threads to program for concurrency.
* Resource Abuse. Manage the availability of shared resources because when they fail, by definition, their failure is experienced pervasively rather than in isolation. For example, connection management to the database through a thread pool.
* Big Ball of Mud. Failure to manage dependencies inhibits agility and scalability.
* Everything or Something. In both code and application dependency management, the worst practice is not understanding the relationships and formulating a model to facilitate their management. Failure to enforce diligent control is a contributing scalability inhibiter.
* Forgetting to check the time. To properly scale a system it is imperative to manage the time alloted for requests to be handled.
* Hero Pattern. One popular solution to the operation issue is a Hero who can and often will manage the bulk of the operational needs. For a large system of many components this approach does not scale, yet it is one of the most frequently-deployed solutions.
* Not automating. A system too dependent on human intervention, frequently the result of having a Hero, is dangerously exposed to issues of reproducibility and hit-by-a-bus syndrome.
* Monitoring. Monitoring, like testing, is often one of the first items sacrificed when time is tight.

If we are seeing a sustained arrival rate of requests, greater than our system is capable of processing, then something has to give. Having the entire system degrade is not the ideal service we want to give our customers. A better approach would be to process transactions at our systems maximum possible throughput rate, while maintaining a good response time, and rejecting requests above this arrival rate. - http://mechanical-sympathy.blogspot.com.au[..]apply-back-pressure-when-overloaded.html

1. 清楚意識到您的創新意圖
2. 為彈性的工作時間設計一個架構
3、涉入,然後再把手收回去
4. 測量什麼是有意義的
5. 給予「無實質價值」的報酬
6. 象徵化
7. 不是標準化地複製他人的創新行為

http://www.inside.com.tw/2014/01/15/6-way-innovation-culture http://www.fastcodesign.com[..]6-ways-to-create-a-culture-of-innovation


1. 在公司裡跟別人吐露的心事越少,對你越好。你以為是無傷大雅的閑聊,其實有可能會造成嚴重傷害。把你的猜測和擔憂都埋在心裡吧。

2. 務必管理好和下屬的關系。花時間和公司裡的較低層員工在一起,盡量對他們友好。對電梯操作員禮貌問候,對郵遞員表示感謝,對助理說句友善的話,這些都會得到讚賞。打造名譽要從基層做起。同樣的,碰到不爽的事情,要自己消化情緒,不要在別人面前發泄。

3. 做領導是一份全職工作,職責的時鐘永不停止。每個微小的跡象都會被解讀,你的不耐煩、失望或不安全感都會被那些解讀你的人放大。不應做出隨意、毫無準備的坦白,信息必須經過深思熟慮才能發出。要特別小心書面的東西,尤其是電子郵件──它們永遠都不會消失。

4. 保持聆聽並索取建議。每周至少在公司餐廳吃一次午飯,或者時不時在咖啡機旁逗留,聽聽其他人都在聊些什麼。如果有人想跟你說話,那就沒有理由不聽。如果有人批評,即使你不讚同也要花時間仔細回應。

5. 你覺得很風趣的俏皮話通常並不風趣。你的幽默感很容易被解讀為自傲和笨拙。如果你仍然以為講笑話或引用某個幽默故事對陳述觀點很重要,那麼請先跟你的配偶或信任的朋友演練一遍。幽默是有風險的。千萬不要拿嚴肅的事情開玩笑。

6. 很重要的一點是,保証重要事務的重要性。應該經常解釋你的戰略,可以換個措辭,但要反復強調。

7. 絕不要抱怨和解釋,沒有人會聽。出了差錯就承擔責任。不要把錯誤怪到前幾屆管理層、天氣、運氣不好或競爭對手身上。但也不要露出防御姿態。向前看──除非上級要求你辭職。

8. 信任你的專業顧問,接受他們的專業意見。不要對市場做過多猜測。沒有所謂的完美數據。做出決策,往前走。

9. 謹慎使用“平均”這個詞──平均深度為6英寸河也可能淹死人。欣然接受“平均”,只會獲得虛假的安全感。假設最糟糕的情況會發生,因為通常就是如此。

10. 最後這條是陳詞濫調,但卻是至理真言:絕不要做或說你不希望在報紙頭條看到的事情。和媒體打交道時,不要回答假設性的問題,謹記麥克風永遠不會真正關閉,絕不要同意“私下”談。對一場危機唯一值得做的公開回應是誠實。
