Java’s future is full of cool advances: data classes, value types, generics over primitives, pattern matching, etc. Let’s peek into Java’s future!
Posts which cover the past and future development of the Java programming language.
I’m sure you’ve heard this and that about Java 9: modularity, collection literals (or not?), private methods on interfaces, etc. But if you really want to know all that’s coming, you need this ultimate guide.
There I go babbling about new stream methods and then I forget one: a Stream::iterate overload that produces a finite stream.
More about Java 9 – this time: Optional. We’ll see how the new methods ‘stream()’, ‘or()’, and ‘ifPresentOrElse()’ considerably improve its API.
Java 9 is coming! And it is more than just Jigsaw. One of the many changes are new Stream methods: ‘takeWhile’, ‘dropWhile’, and ‘ofNullable’. For more fun with streams!
In Java 9 a module must read another to be able to use its API. With implied readability a third module passes the dependency on, allowing the first to read the second without explicitly depending on it.
A Jigsaw tutorial explaining how to create modules, state dependencies between them, and use the module system as a service locator to decouple modules.
Mark Reinhold proposed a six-month delay of JSR 376 / Project Jigsaw and thus of the Java 9 release. According to this JDK 9 would come out in March 2017.
JavaOne 2015 saw a series of talks by the Project Jigsaw team about modularity in Java 9. This one gives a peek under the hood discussing layers and class loaders.
