Chapter 28. 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
