### Scala vs Java programming language

In Excercise 4, we have to use .flatMap or .filter to simplify the given code. However, the syntax used in the solution is very different from the one observed on the slides and I'm having trouble understanding which syntax I should focus on. This also makes it difficult to digest the contents learned in class.
How would the following code be written using the syntax on the slides (Lecture ?

Code: Alles auswählen

(IO.read("filename.json")
flatMap JSON.parse
filter { !_.hasProperty(Ignore) }
map someComplexComputation
onComplete {
case Success(result) =>
println(s"final result: $result") case Failure(_) => println("could not compute result") } ) JLP Moderator Beiträge: 35 Registriert: 19.

The same code using dots and brackets looks like the following: Code: Alles auswählen (IO.read("filename.json") .flatMap(JSON.parse) .filter { !_.hasProperty(Ignore) } .map(someComplexComputation) .onComplete { case Success(result) => println(s"final result:$result")
case Failure(_) =>
println("could not compute result")
}
)

Hey,

I was wondering if following code could work as well... Since this is the structure seen in the lecture:

Code: Alles auswählen

val content = IO.read("testEx04.json")
val processed = content.flatMap { content =>
val json = JSON.parse(content)
json.map { json =>
val result = Future {
someComplexComputation(json.filter{ !json.hasProperty(Ignore) }
}
result.map { result =>
println(s"final result: \$result")
}
}
}
processed.onComplete {
case Failure(_) =>
println("could not compute result")
}
I hope I'm not too late to have an answer before the exam

Did you try to run it?

Yes, but I couldn't run it because IO.read and JSON.parse are methods of an external library (not mentioned in the exercise). Maybe akka?

Anyway, I'm pretty sure that it would work (since I've done some other tests) except for the filter part:

Code: Alles auswählen

someComplexComputation(json.filter{ !json.hasProperty(Ignore) }
So the proposed solution is a better option in this case I think.
