Zulu 10 Has Landed

  In a previous blog post, I went into great detail about all of the 109 new features I had managed to uncover that are included in JDK 10. Given that it’s only six months since the release of JDK 9, this is an impressive feat on the part of the Java Platform Group at

Who Will Use JDK 9?

Recently, I ran a webinar on “Migrating Applications to JDK 9” . To develop this, I used some of the material I had researched for an earlier blog post along with new material gleaned from different sources.

Four Reasons to Attend Zulu University

A while back, I spent an evening in front of a video camera putting together a four-part series explaining Zulu, the family of Java kits provided by Azul based on OpenJDK. With the video series, we were looking for a reasonable way to encapsulate everything from the Zulu product family into a few quick study

Java: More Typing With Less Typing

There are many things that prove divisive amongst software developers. For example, just ask a group of (more mature) developers whether they are a vi or emacs user and this will normally result in a heated discussion on the merits of both (personally, I’m a hard core vi man). Other subjects such as operator overloading
