Rails 7 was released in August 2021, it includes several new features that were not present in Rails 6, including:

  1. Action Mailbox: A new feature that allows you to route incoming email to controller-like mailboxes for processing.

  2. Action Text: A new feature that allows you to easily add rich text editing and storage to your Rails application.

  3. Parallel Testing: A new feature that allows you to run tests in parallel, which can significantly speed up your test suite.

  4. Multiple Database Support: A new feature that allows you to connect to multiple databases from a single Rails application.

  5. Import Maps: A new feature that allows you to import JavaScript modules using import maps, which can help to improve the performance of your application.

  6. Action Cable Testing: A new feature that allows you to test Action Cable, the Rails framework for real-time communication, more easily.

  7. Active Record: Some new features were added to ActiveRecord, like support for custom types, and more control over the ordering of results.

  8. Rails Webpacker: The default JavaScript bundler for Rails has been updated to webpacker 6 which brings better performance and new features.

These are just a few examples of the new features in Rails 7. It also includes several other improvements and changes in the Rails framework to make it more robust, faster and more secure.

Why "F" and "L" suffix | (10.0F, 10L)

Let us take it this way, We will create their needs. So we will get why they are needed. Try to guess, which functions will be executed in the following program: public class MyClass {     public static void main(String args[]) {         MyClass obj = new MyClass();         obj.fun1(10);     }     void fun1(byte val){         System.out.println(val);     }     void fun1(int val){         System.out.println(val);     }     void fun1(float val){         System.out.println(val);     }     void fun1(long val){         System.out.println(val);     }     } It seems like every method is capable to run this program because 10 is still literal because It has no data type. Before Java, In previous technologies, this scenario gave an ambiguity error. But Java solves this problem by removing the concepts of literals. It means Java provide a data type immediately when these born. So here 10 is no more literal. Java provides Integer data type for it. So now it is of Integer t

Typecasting | How is Long to Float Conversion possible?

We will take a brief description of Typecasting and will try to do focus on Log to Float Conversion. Typecasting: Assigning a value of one data type to another. When we assign a value of smaller data type to a bigger one. it is called Widening. Java did this conversion automatically as they are compatible. As shown in the following figure: One another kind of conversion, when automatic conversion not possible i.e. when they are not compatible is Shortening. It will be just opposite of above and diagram will be reversed. How is Long to Float Conversion possible? If we look carefully at the diagram, there is one conversion which looks questionable is Long(8 bytes) to Float(4 bytes) conversion. It looks like data lossy conversion. Actually, Type conversion does two things: Either change in range or change in behavior or both. Change in Range: short a = 3456 // this value can be varied within the range of -32768 to 32767 int b = a // now this value can be varied wi
