The MovieRepository class is used in a Spring Boot web application about old movies.

Modify the findMoviesByName method of the MovieRepository class so that it uses JdbcTemplate to return all Movies that start with the nameStartsWith string. The returned list should contain Movie objects with the name, year, and rating fields correctly set.

The following class, provided here and below, is used to configure Spring:

class Config {
    public DriverManagerDataSource dataSource() {
        DriverManagerDataSource ds = new DriverManagerDataSource();
        return ds;
    public JdbcTemplate jdbcTemplate(DriverManagerDataSource ds) {
        return new JdbcTemplate(ds);

For example, executing the following code:

AnnotationConfigApplicationContext config = new AnnotationConfigApplicationContext();
MovieRepository repository = config.getBean(MovieRepository.class);

repository.createMovie("Some movie", 1974, 3);
repository.createMovie("Some other movie", 1993, 2);
repository.createMovie("Another movie", 1993, 2);

List<Movie> movies = repository.findMoviesByName("Some");
for(Movie movie : movies) {
    System.out.println( + " - " + movie.year + " - " + movie.rating);

should print:

Some movie - 1974 - 3
Some other movie - 1993 - 2

Screening Applicants: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

Since we’re all biased and we use incorrect proxies, why not just outsource hiring to experts or recruitment agencies? After all, they’ve been screening people for many years, so they must know how to do it right?

Not really. I was surprised to discover that many experts disagree with each other. Everybody praises their pet method and criticizes the others. Many of these methods look legitimate, but are based on...
