Oracle will increase the release cadence of Java SE to every six months. However, it seems that the six-month cadence will impact more than just Oracle’s plans. JAXenter editor Hartmut Schlosser talked with Stephen Colebourne about all this and more.
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. However, the six-month cadence will impact more than just Oracle’s plans. JAXenter editor Gabriela Motroc talked with Daniel Bryant about all this and more.
Java SE 9 was released almost a month ago and we already have Java 9 support in Eclipse Oxygen, Spring Framework 5.0, IntelliJ IDEA and more. Now Gradle has joined the club. Let’s see what this means.
Project Jigsaw, Java’s new modular system, is the star of Java 9. We talked with Rabea Gransberger, software developer at MEKOS and organizer of JUG Bremen, about the new release, the modular system, what’s still missing in this release and the plans for an all-new and significantly shortened release cycle.
JavaOne began yesterday, October 1. If you’re not there, you’ll probably want to watch the Java keynote today at 2 p.m. PT. We still have some hours left so let’s see what this year’s JavaOne is all about. We talked with Oracle’s Mike Lehmann and Donald Smith about what to expect from the conference and we got a sneak peek into the future of Java. In short, “it’s all about developer empowerment and simplification.”
Oracle recently announced the general availability of Java SE 9 — even though it has over 150 new features to offer, the star of the release is the Java Platform Module System, also known as Project Jigsaw. We talked with Lukas Eder, founder and head of R&D at Data Geekery GmbH, the company behind jOOQ about his favorite features in Java 9, the ones that were not included, Project Jigsaw and the new version numbering scheme.
A lot will change in the Java world now that JDK 9 has been released. Oracle has proposed a new version numbering scheme in order to emphasize the time-based releases and to make it easier to figure out the release date of any particular release. In short, there will be no Java 10 — instead, we’ll have 18.3 (March 2018), then 18.9 (September 2018) and so on. Which scheme do you prefer?
A seemingly endless number of debates is taking place around Java 9 and project Jigsaw. It started before Java 9 was even released and now that it’s here, we invited Falk Sippach to talk about the release and its key feature, Project Jigsaw, what’s missing in Java 9 and whether it was worth the wait.
Oracle has just announced the general availability of Java SE 9, Java EE 8 and the Java EE 8 Software Development Kit (SDK). From now on, it’s all about faster releases and more open source engagement.
Stephen Colebourne, Java Champion and JAX London speaker is very excited about the upcoming Java 9 release and the imminent modular future. Project Jigsaw should have been a major feature of Java 8 but now it’s ready for public display. Therefore, it’s time to consider how it might affect existing and new codebases. We talked to Stephen about the new Java 9 and the star of the show, Project Jigsaw.

Java 9’s due date is coming but there are still some things we need to understand before its arrival. In the last part of our interview series, Java influencers bust some Java 9 misconceptions and reveal what they’d like to see in Java 10.
IntelliJ IDEA 2017.2 is finally here. This massive update for IntelliJ IDEA contains an abundance of features and important bugfixes. There’s Kotlin 1.1.3 support, Groovy 2.5.0 support, smarter coding assistance, Java 9 module diagrams and more.
