Get your hands on the latest issue of JAX Magazine – crammed to the brim with integration testing tips, Eclipse update overviews and reasons why bosses need to appreciate their dev teams.

The barbeques are smouldering out, the nights are
drawing in and Summer’s well and truly drawing to a close. That can
only mean one thing: JavaOne is nearly upon us!

After a false start in 2013, since last year’s event,
we’ve finally had the long awaited Java 8 launch, bringing with it
lambdas, the long-awaited re-imagining of the Date and Time API,
and countless other small tunings that overall added up to one big
release.

Java 9 still seems a long time off, but we’re expecting big
developments on the modularity front. Not sure about those freemium
release model rumours – but rest assured, we’ll keep you posted.
This will be my last issue as editor of JAX Magazine, but I’ll be
keeping a keen eye on future editions for all the latest Java
goodness, courtesy of Coman Hamilton, your friendly local
JAXenter.com and JAXmag man.

On that note, as usual, we’ve got plenty to offer. For
starters, Nicolas Frankel will be offering an in-depth look at
Spring configuration modularization for Integration
Testing
.

From the Eclipse and Big Data worlds,
we’ll be hearing from Holger Voormann and regular contributor Cory
Isaacson.

Finally, CloudBee’s Sacha Labourey will explain
why app developers are now “strategic” gold. Well
worth printing and sharing with your boss we think, ideally in
poster size, positioned directly in front of his
monitor.

You can download your free copy of JAX
Magazine
 (and previous issues) straight to your desktop,
tablet or ginormous Rasberry Pi phone – we won’t
judge.
