Java: Today and Tomorrow

Java is the most popular development platform on the planet, with literally millions of developers and users and over twenty years of development.

In this presentation, we’ll start with a discussion about where Java is today. The current release is JDK 10 but, with the new six-month release cadence, this will soon be replaced with JDK 11. Moving applications from JDK 8 to a later release requires careful attention to the impact of the Java Platform Module System, which we’ll briefly discuss.

The way Java is delivered is changing in the next six months; from JDK 11 public updates will only be available for free for six months, until the next release of the JDK. What this means and how it impacts users will be discussed in detail.

From there, we’ll look at the technical future of the Java language and platform with projects like Valhalla, Loom and Metropolis.

In the second half of the presentation, we’ll look at how to build a better JVM. Java uses a virtual machine that saves a lot of work for developers but, with features like automatic garbage collection and JIT compilation, performance tuning can be confusing and complicated. We’ll explore how different algorithms and approaches to these features can radically improve the performance of Java applications without the need to change a single line of code.

Be ready for a deep technical dive into Java!
