Clojure Extended: Java interop

About the Book

This paper is focused on one narrow theme: how to use Java capabilities in Clojure. There are plenty of tutorials and books about Clojure so far, but most of them consider their readers as new ones in programming. There is no room for extended topics as the result.

Java interop is one of such topics. You will learn how to reuse proven Java libraries to get the results quickly. We will go through several business cases. In each of them, you are going to solve a problem by writing Clojure code that relies on Java capabilities. All the cases are real and borrowed from the projects I've been worked on personally.
