As 2019 draws to a close, we got in touch with some prominent members of the Java community to gather their thoughts on the events of the last year. In this five part series, we will look at what they had to say. In this first part, we asked what their Java highlights were in 2019.
Top 10 Java stories of November: Quarkus 1.0.0.Final, Java’s new ValueType and current plans for Java 14
December is here, so let’s take a look back and see what happened last month in the Java world, which remained as busy as always. More JEPs were confirmed for JDK 14—that means there are currently 14 features under consideration for Java 14. See what else happened from a new Quarkus release to the most popular programming languages, and read some inspiring new interviews from our series Women in Tech.
Every Monday, we take a step back and look at all the cool stuff that went down during the previous week. Last week Quarkus 1.0.0.Final arrived, five new JEPs were confirmed for Java 14 and we published a new interview in our series Women in Tech.
IntelliJ IDEA 2019.3 has been released with many new features for users of the Ultimate and open source versions. The team worked on providing a faster startup time and reduced memory consumption to all users of the IDE, while Ultimate users receive additional features.
In this video, you will meet Quarkus, a Kubernetes native Java stack tailored for OpenJDK HotSpot and GraalVM, crafted from the best of breed Java libraries and standards. Alex Soto, software engineer at Red Hat, is passionate about the Java world and will guide you through Java particle acceleration using Quarkus.
We caught up with Red Hat’s Alex Soto at JAX London and spoke to him about Quarkus and his conference session, “Java Particle Acceleration using Quarkus”. Watch the interview and find out about Quarkus, the Supersonic Subatomic Java.
After two release candidates and 30 releases over 36 weeks – that’s one every nine days – the final version of Quarkus 1.0 is here. Don’t feel sad though, the pace won’t slow down and they’re already talking about their plans for Quarkus 1.1! Let’s take a closer look.
Every Monday, we take a step back and look at all the cool stuff that went down during the previous week. Last week we featured a look at ways in which Java is staying young, such as with frameworks like Quarkus, Sourcetrail was open sourced, we looked at edge architecture and its impact on IoT and much more. Let’s take a closer look.
Java is no spring chicken and some are even referring to it as a “vintage language”. Despite its popularity, there are some complaints about it. In our new cloud-native world, why does Java need to evolve? In order to evolve to keep up with modern, cloud-native apps, Java needs to keep all of what makes it so dependable, while also being able to function in new app environments.
The Java Framework Quarkus is making Java ready for the Cloud-native Age with Kubernetes and Serverless. With Quarkus 1.0.0, the first major version has been released. Although it does not contain any major changes, it represents an important milestone for the open source project.
In 2016, Forbes published an article in which Apache Tika was identified as one of the key emerging technologies. Sergey Beryozkin (Red Hat Middleware R&D) revealed in an interview at ApacheCon 2019 what Apache Tika can do with GraalVM and where there is room for improvement.
What did we learn at JAX London 2019? The answer is obviously different for each visitor, as many paths lead through the JAX programme. We summarised some of OUR personal highlights from the big Java conference – of course without claiming to be complete.
Quarkus version 0.22.0 arrived recently, adding a Quarkus Extension for Spring Web API, and a new web interface for easily creating Quarkus applications. See the newest changes and be sure to check out our interview with Alex Soto, Java Champion and Director of Developer Experience at Red Hat about the future of Quarkus.
September is upon us! The sun is still shining, but the mornings have a chill in the air. Don’t worry though, we’ve got something to keep you warm on your way to work – the 10 hottest posts from the last month. Let’s take a closer look.
