Java SE 9 has just been announced with it's major feature of modularity, also known as Jigsaw. If you listen to Oracle, you would think that moving to this totally different JDK and JRE is as simple as writing your first "Hello World!" program. Depending on your application's needs, it may turn out to be this straight-forward. But, as we continue to experiment with this new Java SE 9 paradigm, we are discovering several hiccups, hurdles, and surprises.
The JDT team is dedicated to delivering full support for Java™ 9 right when the new version is released, just as we did for every version. In this session we will share some of the things we learned while working from an evolving specification. We will also discuss the impact of this new version specifically on tool-smithing for Java.
Last year I showed where we, i.e. JDT, are with Java™ 9. This was well received and got a lot of positive feedback . We added many features since then and Java™ 9 is supposed to go GA on September 21.This session will present the most important new stuff in Java™ 9, especially project Jigsaw, which introduces modules into Java™. I will show how to get started developing Java™ 9 code with Eclipse and demo the new features that are provided by the upcoming Eclipse release for Java™ 9.
Internals of Java Virtual Machine based on challenges and experience in implementation of one of the most popular code coverage tools for Java - JaCoCo ( http://www.jacoco.org/jacoco/index.html ) that is backbone of award-winning Eclipse EclEmma Plugin ( https://www.eclipse.org/eclemma ).
In this presentation we will dive into bosom of JVM (bytecode, restrictions, classloaders) answering on following questions:
