Java's four big projects are entering the home stretch: Amber and Panama have already incubated, previewed, and even finalized some features, Loom and Valhalla are on track to follow soon. Time to take a closer look at how...
- Project Amber makes the language more expressive and ready for today's and tomorrow's problems
- Project Panama cuts through the isthmus separating Java from native code
- Project Loom enables hassle-free and efficient structured concurrency
- Project Valhalla mends the rift in Java's type system and improves performance
After this talk, you will know what to expect from Java in the next few years.
