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.

Interview series with Java influencers — Part 2

Java 9 and the future of modularity: Will Project Jigsaw be a hit or flop?

Never a dull moment with Java 9. First, the JCP EC decided not to approve the Public Review Ballot for JSR 376 but then they signed off on the Reconsideration Ballot. Java 9 will be released on September 21 but will developers get started on JDK 9 without modules? In the second part of our interview series, Java influencers weigh in on Java 9 and the modular ecosystem.

JDK 9 receives eight-week extension

Java 9 delayed to September 21

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.

Caution: This change will not magically solve every JDK 9 adoption problem

JDK 9: Proposal to allow illegal reflective access by default

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.”
