Get your first look at the changes and new features in Java 9, including Project Jigsaw, JShell, and the enhanced Process API.
- [Peggy] Hi, my name is Peggy Fisher, and I will be your instructor for this first look at Java 9. The purpose of this course is to review the new features that are being added with this new release. Although I will not be going over every single feature, I am going to highlight a few that I think are pretty important. I will also review some resources that are available to find out more about all the features included in JDK 9. Next, I will review four specific features that I feel are important to understand and know more about.
These include Project Jigsaw, which is a major change to Java and actually is going to help modularize Java, jshell, which provides a REPL session for Java which stands for Read-Evaluate-Print-Loop. There are also some new process API changes and there's an incubator project for working with HTTP/2. Finally, I will highlight some of the prominent features expected in this new release.
If you're ready, let's learn more about what to expect with Java 9.
