Java 9: Building Robust Modular Applications

By: Dr. Edward Lavieri, Peter Verhas, Jason Lee

Overview of this book

Java 9 and its new features add to the richness of the language; Java is one of the languages most used by developers to build robust software applications. Java 9 comes with a special emphasis on modularity with its integration with Jigsaw. This course is your one-stop guide to mastering the language. You'll be provided with an overview and explanation of the new features introduced in Java 9 and the importance of the new APIs and enhancements. Some new features of Java 9 are ground-breaking; if you are an experienced programmer, you will be able to make your enterprise applications leaner by learning these new features. You'll be provided with practical guidance in applying your newly acquired knowledge of Java 9 and further information on future developments of the Java platform. This course will improve your productivity, making your applications faster. Next, you'll go on to implement everything you've learned by building 10 cool projects. 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 just a few. By the end of this course, you will be well acquainted with Java 9 features and able to build your own applications and projects. This Learning Path contains the best content from the following two recently published Packt products: • Mastering Java 9 • Java 9 Programming Blueprints

Ongoing Special Projects

Java Enhancement Proposals present design and implementation changes to the Java platform. The criteria for a JEP being drafted is that the work must meet at least one of the following:

  • At least two weeks of engineering work
  • Signifies a significant change to the JDK
  • Represents a high demand issue for developers or customers

Projects, on the other hand, represent collaborative efforts that are sponsored by one of the following groups:

  • 2D Graphics
  • Adoption
  • AWT
  • Build
  • Compatibility and specification review
  • Compiler
  • Conformance
  • Core Libraries
  • Governing Board
  • HotSpot
  • Internationalization
  • JMX
  • Members
  • Networking
  • NetBeans Projects
  • Porters
  • Quality
  • Security
  • Serviceability
  • Sound
  • Swing
  • Web

Groups are formal and new ones can be proposed.

The following listed active projects represent possible future enhancement areas to the Java platform. Brief information about each project is provided later in this section and provides insight into general areas of future changes:

  • Annotations pipeline 2.0
  • Audio Synthesis...
