Things are starting to move fast in the Java EE 8 universe. We checked in to see what happened in the past month, just to make sure you didn’t miss anything important. The big news is the final release version for JSF 2.3 but that’s not all that happened in March!
Companies are scrambling to find enough programmers capable of coding for ML and deep learning. Are you ready? Here are five of our top picks for machine learning libraries for Java.
Do you know how other developers react when Java developers talk? Or how Oracle does math? Have you ever wondered what’s the difference between coding academic Java and enterprise Java? Share a laugh with us as we reveal the most-shared gifs, code and jokes about Java programmers.
For all search-engine geeks out there, the Apache Lucene Team has a very special gift for the holidays: Version 5.4.0 of Apache Lucene and Apache Solr has been released!
This week in Java news: the cause of Java 9 delays becomes clearer, Java is to get a new version string scheme and the Streams debate continues. Java news updates and new knowledge resources in Thorben Janssen’s Java Weekly.
There’s a legend out there saying that every time someone mentions Project Jigsaw, it’s delayed by one month. Alex Zhitnitsky takes a brief look at Project Jigsaw’s history of delays in the wake of recent news about the Java 9 launch being pushed back.
Another dose of Thorben Janssen’s Java news is served looking at the unfortunate delay of JDK 9, two fundamental Java EE technologies and an introduction to RAML, the RESTful API Modelling language. All this and more with the hottest Java links for the week.
Working between Java 7 and Java 8? Then you might be aware that the AutoCloseable type goes through a little change for the newest version of Java. Lukas Eder explains how the contract for AutoCloseable is now similar to the Iterable contract.
Oracle cannot meet expectations for the planned release of Java 9 in September 2016. In a message broadcast to the community via mailing list, chief architect Mark Reinhold has revealed that the modularisation work in Project Jigsaw needs more time.
There has been a lot of talk about the speed of streams in Java 8, but as Alex Zhitnitsky shows, sticking to a more traditional Java programming style with iterators and for-each loops will significantly outperform new implementations in Java 8.
Thorben Janssen returns for this week’s Java news which looks at Lambdas and Streams in Java 8, OSR and a small serving of Java EE via WildFly Swarm microservice development. All this and more with the hottest Java links for the week.
What makes a UI attractive to the user? Members of the Reddit community have thrown up their hands in support of beautiful Java UIs to gain inspiration outside of the IDE space. Here we show a couple of examples of how good-looking a UI can be.
It’s a Superman vs. Batman battle. If we pit sequential streams against regular for-loops, which one comes out faster? After some careful benchmark tests, Angelika Langer shows us which is fastest, and why must be careful to make judgements.
How does Java 9’s modularity compare to the OSGI module system? Is it good to set goals for code coverage? The latest Thorben Janssen brings us the latest news and essential reading from the Java world.
