Azul Deputy CTO Simon Ritter will be speaking at this event about Project Jigsaw in JDK 9…
Project Jigsaw will bring modularity to the Java platform; something that will enable better security, performance and flexibility for deployment of applications. This talk will look at the fundamentals of how modularity in Java will work. Developers will need to understand that these changes go significantly further than just separating the standard class libraries into a number of discrete units.
Simon will explain the impact project Jigsaw will have on developers in terms of building their applications, as well as helping them to understand how things like encapsulation of private APIs, which have up until now been visible, will change in JDK 9.
