Come hear a lively overview of the new features in JDK 7, including the language changes of Project Coin, the filesystem and other I/O features from NIO.2, and the new invokedyamic JVM instruction.
2:20pm–3:00pm Tuesday, 07/26/2011
The Java programming language has evolved significantly since its introduction in 1995. In this talk, I'll discuss language changes from the addition of assertions in JDK 1.4 through Project Coin in Java 8, discussing what worked, what didn't, and why. Finally, I'll discuss ongoing efforts (Project Lambda for Java 8) and future plans, in light of the lessons learned from previous changes.
