Overview of this book

Java is a powerful language that has applications in a wide variety of fields. From playing games on your computer to performing banking transactions, Java is at the heart of everything. The book starts by unveiling the new features of Java 9 and quickly walks you through the building blocks that form the basis of writing applications. There are 10 comprehensive projects in the book that will showcase the various features of Java 9. You will learn to build an email filter that separates spam messages from all your inboxes, a social media aggregator app that will help you efficiently track various feeds, and a microservice for a client/server note application, to name a few. The book covers various libraries and frameworks in these projects, and also introduces a few more frameworks that complement and extend the Java SDK. Through the course of building applications, this book will not only help you get to grips with the various features of Java 9, but will also teach you how to design and prototype professional-grade applications with performance and security considerations.

Chapter 12. What is Next?

At last, we have come to our final chapter together. We've built a number of different types of application, attempting to highlight and demonstrate different parts of the Java platform, especially those new to Java 9. As we've discussed, it's impossible to write something with only new-in-Java-9 technologies and APIs, so we also saw a variety of interesting items from Java 7 and 8. As Java 9 is finally shipping, it makes sense to look ahead to see what Java's future might hold for us, but it's also wise to look around and see what other languages are offering so that we can decide if our next Java will actually be Java. In this chapter, we'll do just that.

We will cover the following topics in this chapter:

  • Recapping topics we previously covered
  • What we can expect in the future
