Persona: Architect, CTO/CIO/Leadership, Developer, JVM, Technical Engineering Manager

Abstract

Join Bernard Traversat, Vice President of Java SE Development at Oracle to discuss migration strategies for Java 9 and the important of the new Java 9 module system to improve Java code upgradability. As the speed of deployment in the cloud is accelerating, the compatibility and upgradability of cloud services are becoming critical. The Java 9 modular runtime and module system provide a fundamental new way to assemble and protect compatibilities between Java code. This session will review the compatibility and upgradability stand taken by leading developer’s platforms (Java, JavaScript, Node.js, Python, Go), cover the new Java 9 features (module system, modular runtime, multi-jar packaging, Jdep, etc), and discuss migration strategies to migrate your existing code to Java 9. The session will provide number of useful tips to ease the migration of your code to Java 9.
