Simon Ritter, Deputy CTO at Azul Systems and alternate representative on the JCP EC wrote in a blog post after JCP executive committee’s first face-to-face meeting that “the JCP will require some substantial changes to the processes it uses” to ensure that an agile Java standard is possible.
In this video, Ondrej Mihalyi explores what has happened in the world of enterprise Java recently, including the progress of the Java EE 8 specifications and the features already provided by some interesting open-source projects. He also zooms in on the MicroProfile.io initiative and how its future direction can be formed with your contribution.
The dominance (not to mention popularity) of Java has remained uncontested for years. Java continues to top almost all the lists of programming languages in respect of popularity, career scope, and industry preference. Java is great because of its versatility, strength and capacity to handle complex tasks. But is there anything better than Java? Can there really be one?
2017 is finally here, so it’s time to see which technology trends might become important this year. We asked six people to talk about the features they would you like to see in Java 10.
Eclipse January is a set of common data structures in Java, including a powerful library for handling numerical data. As the volumes and complexity of data dramatically increases —the so-called ‘Big Data’— Eclipse January provides a numerical library that simplifies the handling and manipulation of data in the form of multi-dimensional arrays.
In this article, Java champion Lukas Eder weighs in on the Java ecosystem’s obsession with NonNull annotations and explains why using type annotations is a very strategic decision.
Netflix Hollow is a Java library and comprehensive toolset for harnessing small to moderately sized in-memory datasets which are disseminated from a single producer to many consumers for read-only access. It is built with servers busily serving requests at or near maximum capacity in mind and its aim is to address the scaling challenges of in-memory datasets. Let’s see the advantages that come from using Netflix Hollow.
The Register is painting a bleak picture of Java clients’ financial future — it appears that Oracle has decided to approach both clients and partners who are out of compliance on Java.
Cloud technologies are changing the IT landscape and companies that want to implement a cloud strategy must face the challenges that go hand in hand with this transformation. Apache jclouds, an open source multi-cloud toolkit for the Java platform, helps fill some of the gaps in the cloud landscape. We asked Ignasi Barrera, member of the Apache jclouds Project Management Committee to identify the benefits of jclouds and to clarify what’s under this project’s hood.
Clinton’s campaign: Could machine learning and Java have prevented their failure to handle big data?
Hillary Clinton’s 18-month campaign as the Democrat candidate for the presidency of the United States has been famously and resoundingly data-driven. A war room of senior analysts, mathematicians and researchers monitored, tracked and calculated every significant movement of her campaign, adjusting strategy to shift focus to different geo-political demographics. The polls gave affirmation that she was on track to win until the final hours of the campaign, but ultimately the pollsters failed to forecast the US election result correctly. A loss not just for Clinton and the Democrats, but for all those who are proponents of the value of data. Or so it is told.
In this post, Alex Zhitnitsky takes a down-to-earth view at the frameworks we have at our disposal, focusing on the Java ecosystem, to actually implement microservices and see what they’re all about.
When Java Platform Module System (JPMS) is released, developers can start to deliver their own Java modules for the JPMS. What happens when developers want to use Java modules to compose applications which are running on a container that is built using the OSGi module system? Will containers be able to provide APIs in a way that JPMS modules can require and access them? Thomas Watson, Senior Software Engineer at IBM, explore the JPMS and answers these questions.
In this session, Simone Bordet examines the HTTP 2.0 protocol and explores what it takes to write HTTP 2.0 applications in the Java platform, what plans there are to support it in JDK 9 and which Servlet Containers are already offering HTTP 2.0 support.
In our latest issue of JAX Magazine, we dive deeper into reactive programming and analyze the most popular JVM language and where we are heading to. After talking to Martin Odersky, the creator of Scala, about the 2.12 version and the current state of this programming language, we invited six Scala developers to weigh in on Scala’s appeal and to express their opinion with regard to Scala’s future.
