Gradle is now a Java 9 support 'club member'

Gradle’s Java 9 support explained

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.

Interview with Mike Lehmann and Donald Smith

JavaOne 2017: What to expect this week

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.”

Interview with Java Champion Lukas Eder

“Jigsaw won’t be important for consumers for quite a while — we already have Maven and OSGi”

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.

After 9 comes 18.3

Life after Java 9: Will you miss the old 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?

Things are *definitely* changing

Java SE 9 and Java EE 8 are here

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.

Interview with Stephen Colebourne

Java 9 and beyond: “Modules are very much a feature for the long-term”

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.
