Cheat sheets are a godsend when you don’t know something – and that will happen no matter how well-prepared you are, which is why these cheat sheets might come in handy. And since we’re here to learn more about programming languages, why not dive deeper into the JVM universe? It will be fun, I promise.
Two decades after its release, Java is still developers’ darling. In this post, you will get to know the real reasons that have kept Java secure and away from retirement.
When MVC 1.0 was dropped from Java EE 8, that should have been the end of it. But the community rallied and now MVC 1.0 lives on, with a little help from Java Champion Ivar Grimstad.
Whether it’s about open source, Java, or even the intractable debate over stateful design vs. stateless design, Java Champion Lukas Eder has a lot of thoughts about the current state of the programming world.
In late May, Mark Reinhold proposed to “adjust the General Availability date in order to accommodate the additional time required to move through the JCP process.” Since there were no objections to the proposed eight-week extension, Java 9 will be released on September 21.
Things are heating up as May gives way to June. What were we reading this month? Well, in addition to diving deep into the archives, readers were really interested in Angular 4, Java’s slight decline on the TIOBE Index, and especially the fallout from the controversial vote against JSR 376 and Project Jigsaw.
The release of Java 9 could be delayed to September 21, 2017. What does this mean for Jigsaw? What does this mean for developers? We talked to Georges Saab, chairperson of the OpenJDK governing board and vice president of development for the Java Platform group at Oracle about the proposal to delay the release of Java 9, the roadmap towards Java 10 and more.
Lucky number three. The third meeting of the Jigsaw Expert Group (they also met on May 17 and 22) offered an answer to the question on everyone’s lips: Is the group ready to move forward? Let’s have a look at the minutes.
Java has been around forever. It seems like there’s nothing about this old favorite that we don’t know about. But do you really know everything about Java? Test your knowledge about Java and find out!
Mark Reinhold, Chief Architect of the Java Platform Group at Oracle, came up with the proposal to allow illegal reflective access from code on the class path by default in JDK 9 and to disallow it in a future release. Although the idea was well received, he emphasized that the change won’t “magically solve every JDK 9 adoption problem.”
Apache Maven is one of the actors that criticized the current state of Jigsaw. We caught up with Robert Scholte, chairman of the Apache Maven Project to chat about how well Maven is already working with Java 9, what is still problematic about Jigsaw and how the roadmap to Maven 5 looks like.
In this tutorial, Allice Watson, explains how a String can be converted into an int data type in Java [examples included].
The clock is ticking: Although the EC didn’t approve the Public Review Ballot for JSR 376, the Jigsaw ship has not sailed yet. We caught up with Rémi Forax, a member of the Jigsaw expert group at JAX 2017 to chat about the impact of the vote on the state of Java 9 and the criticism surrounding Jigsaw.
