Putting the spotlight on Java tools
The ever-changing and, more importantly, ever-growing Java ecosystem keeps developers on their toes. In honor of the Java 12 release, we decided to put a spotlight on a few tools from the Java universe.
Although popularity is an important metric when choosing a tool, you might not recognize some of the names included in this JAX Magazine issue. That’s because the community and all the tools it produces play an important role in Java’s development and we need to debunk the myth that just because a certain tool is popular, that automatically means it’s suitable for every situation.
If 2019 is all about consolidating your Java skills and knowledge, you’re in luck! Open the magazine and discover some old favorites and new additions!
