How Uber Engineering Verifies Data at Runtime with the Annotations You Already Use

Uber’s hypergrowth forces our developers to engineer stability into our apps using resourceful techniques. In 2016, for instance, we created and open sourced Runtime Annotation Validation Engine (RAVE), a data model validation framework that uses Java annotation processing to tackle the number one cause of crashes in our Android apps: NullPointerExceptions (NPEs). NPEs are a common issue with languages like Java that do not have nullability built into their type system. By leveraging the annotations you already use, RAVE acts as a…
