Last year, Oracle announced a new, faster release plan for the Java Development Kit (JDK) which has significant implications for the Java community.
Faster release cycles will bring most Java versions to end-of-life status in a matter of months.
Free public updates for older versions of the JDK will end – access to security and bug fixes will only be obtainable via support contracts.
What does this mean for organizations dependent on Java technologies for their core business? How do you plan for the future?
You’re invited to a seminar where these issues will be addressed by two people deeply involved in these changes and how they will impact organizations; Gil Tene, CTO and co-founder of Azul Systems, and Steve Millidge, founder of Payara Services.. Both Steve and Gill will talk through the details on what’s happening with Java, and provide guidance on how you can prepare your organization.
Where: Institute of Directors, 116 Pall Mall,Trafalgar 2 Room, London SW1Y 5ED
