What are your plans for moving to JDK 9? Are you already in production or are we all just “thinking” about it? Simon Ritter believes that there are a few key reasons why JDK 9 will have little adoption in production.
GitHub is all about sharing code, so it makes sense that there’s a certain amount of code-copying on the site. However, recent research suggests that over 70% of the code on GitHub is just duplicates. While Java wins points for originality, all of the languages surveyed have a surprising amount of project plagiarism.
Fn, a new serverless open source project was announced at this year’s JavaOne. There’s no risk of cloud lock-in and you can write functions in your favorite programming language. “You can make anything, including existing libraries, into a function by packaging it in a Docker container.” We invited Bob Quillin, VP for the Oracle Container Group to talk about Fn, its best features, next milestones and more.

There’s a definite chill in the air as the days grow shorter and shorter. October is over, so let’s check in and see what happened. Last month, we read everything there is to read on Angular in anticipation of the release of 5.0. Also, the latest JDK 9 news, code repositories, and more!
Garbage Collection logging is not standardized. And as time goes on, differing “standards” proliferate, leading to further fragmentation within the field. How can we fix this? In this article, Ram Lakshmanan goes over the latest attempt at standardization, the Unified JVM Logging framework.
Oracle has proposed to increase the release cadence of Java SE to every six months and indicated they will begin distributing builds of OpenJDK under the GPLv2+CPE license.
