Jigsaw: What the Heck Happens Now?

Session details
Session Type: 
Experience level: 

By the time you see this talk, Java 9 should have been released with its flagship feature: the Java Platform Module System (JPMS), also known as Jigsaw.

It goes without saying that Jigsaw will have a big impact on the entire Java ecosystem, and particularly on OSGi developers who have an 18 year head start on modularising Java applications. However, while OSGi and Jigsaw ostensibly solve similar problems, they do so in very different ways. In this talk I will address questions such as...

  • Does JPMS make OSGi obsolete?
  • How can OSGi and JPMS work together?
  • Will OSGi change to take advantage of JPMS features?
  • What will the future look like for OSGi and Java?
