October 2014 – JAX London issue

Dust has barely begun to settle on the new features of Java 8, and already Oracle has unleashed a storm of excitement on the Java community. The official confirmation of new features for Java 9 release has made it an interesting few weeks in Java, indeed, with most of the Java community debating the need for the new APIs and modular source code. But the excitement’s not over just yet. This month has plenty of fun and games in store for us, with the JavaOne just behind us and the JAX London just around the corner.

Speaking of fun, in this issue PHP pro Sebastian Bergmann explains why dishing out bad code is exactly like dishing out bad dosh – and why it helps to think of code as well-prepared food.

Oracle’s Geertjan Wielenga shows us the ropes of giving our data some REST using NetBeans. Holger Voormann continues his exploration of Eclipse’s Luna updates, taking us through the new project highlights and what’s still missing. Finally, Paul Fremantle tells us about every CTO’s need to balance their breadth and depth of tech knowledge and gives a few hints about his keynote on connecting the world, coming in at the JAX London in October. Here’s to an exciting couple of weeks!
