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.
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.
Lucky number three. The third meeting of the Jigsaw Expert Group (they also met on May 17 and 22) offered an answer to the question on everyone’s lips: Is the group ready to move forward? Let’s have a look at the minutes.
Jigsaw’s rocky development has hit another potential roadblock. In an unprecedented move, IBM and Red Hat have publicly stated they will vote no on Project Jigsaw. Could this delay Java 9?
The countdown to the Java 9 release has begun — in just 100 days, we’ll be able to take it for a spin. However, some of the members of the Java Platform Module System expert group claim that we shouldn’t pop the champagne just yet. Is Jigsaw really that flawed or is it a worthy opponent to JBoss Modules and OSGi?
How does Java 9’s modularity compare to the OSGI module system? Is it good to set goals for code coverage? The latest Thorben Janssen brings us the latest news and essential reading from the Java world.
Following last summer’s announcement that the JDK’s source code would be modularized by Project Jigsaw, Chief Architect Mark Reinhold has now given an insight to the latest developments in the modularization of Java.
Mark Reinhold announces gear shift from explorative stages to creation of production-quality design and implementation for Jigsaw in Java 9.
Following slow progress, Project Jigsaw devs ditch four years
The second half of the year was as eventful as the first: heres the most important and interesting events from July through to December.
IBM’s Holly Cummins and ‘Diabolical Developer’ Martijn Verburg discuss ways of overcoming complexity in software development. Recorded at JAX London 2012.
In 2015, is Java just going to be 20 years old, or is it going to be new and vital? asked IBM’s Poole in his JAX London keynote.
With JAX London just around the corner, we caught up with the Keynoters. Our second chat is with Java performance masters Kirk Pepperdine and the Diabolic Developer, Martijn Verburg.
