Next stop, Java 15! Yes, now that Java 14 is out in the wild, we’ve got our eyes set on the next destination, JDK 15. We will be keeping track of all the Java 15 news throughout its development. It’s a small news roundup today – a release date, another JEP proposed to target and our first confirmed JEP to target Java 15. Let’s take a closer look.
Z Garbage Collector has been part of the JDK since Java 11. Since then lots of new features and enhancements have been made to ZGC, resulting in a long time as an experimental feature. However, because no ZGC-specific bugs have been reported in months, JEP 377 proposes to change its status from experimental to production.
Java 14 was released last week, so we spoke to Michael Vitz about the latest features. Read the interview to find out why he thinks JEP 358 is a significant improvement—but does not bring Java closer to Kotlin. He also shared his thoughts on the shorter release cycle and named a feature he would like to see in Java 15.
To celebrate the release of Java 14, here’s a deep dive into Records in JDK 14. It’s written by Developer Advocate at JetBrains, founder of eJavaGuru.com and Java Champion, Mala Gupta. What a treat! So let’s get stuck in.
Last week, Java 14 was released! We spoke to Markus Günther about the most important features, what he would like to see in Java 15, and what to take into consideration when upgrading. Also find out how he thinks Java is reducing the gap to other programming languages.
Java 14 was released last week, so we spoke to Oliver B. Fischer about the latest features. Find out what he likes about Java 14 and what he thinks is missing. Read the interview to learn why he has mixed feelings about the faster release cycle and whether he recommends updating.
For the release of Java 14, we spoke to software architect Tim Riemer. Read the interview to find out what features he is most excited about, whether he misses any features, and what he would like to see in Java 15.
For the release of Java 14, we spoke to software developer Jens Schauder. Read the interview to find out what features he is most excited about, how Java compares to other languages, and why the number of additional features does not define how relevant a programming language is.
„Languages must evolve, or they risk becoming irrelevant,“ Brian Goetz (Oracle) said in November 2019 during his presentation „Java Language Futures“ at Devoxx in Belgium. As Java Language Architect, he plays a major role in the fact that Java, despite its 25 years, is still far from being outdated. In this article, we’ll take a look at the innovations of JDK 14.

instanceof in JDK 14. It’s written by Developer Advocate at JetBrains, founder of eJavaGuru.com and Java Champion, Mala Gupta. What a treat!
Java 14 is finally here. Java 12 and Java 13 each came with a manageable number of new features, and thanks to the new release cadence that hasn’t changed for Java 14. We’ve kept track of JDK 14 from the very start, so we’re very excited that the big day is finally here!
For the release of Java 14 we talked to Java expert Dr. Heinz Kabutz. What does he like and dislike about Java 14? What is he currently working on? What does he still find disturbing in 2020? Read on to find out…
OpenJFX is currently hosted on Mercurial, but with Project Skara in the pipeline and JavaFX already partially on GitHub, Kevin Rushforth thinks it’s time to talk about moving OpenJFX there as well. It couldn’t have come at a better time because Bitbucket announced this week that they are shutting down Mercurial for good next summer.
Two new JDK Enhancement Proposals, or JEP, drafts propose to make changes to garbage collection in the next JDK. One wants to remove Concurrent Mark Sweep garbage collector, since it was deprecated two years ago, and the other wants to make Z Garbage Collector available to macOS users as well. Let’s take a closer look.
