JDK 9 is scheduled for general availablity in July 2017. The biggest new feature for this release of Java is Project Jigsaw that brings modularity to both the core JDK libraries as well as, potentially, application code.
Modularising the JDK core libraries is not just a simple matter of breaking up the rt.jar file into a number of sections. The Jigsaw module system allows for encapsulation of packages that developers do not want publicly exposed. Encapsulation of JDK internal APIs will potentially break backwards compatability for application code that uses these APIs. This session will explain the practicalities of running applications on JDK 9.
We’ll also look at how you can migrate existing applications to the new module system in a gradual and controlled way to minimise impact on users.
