Talk

Java Next - From Amber to Loom, from Panama to Valhalla

Conference
Java

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.

Scheduled on Wednesday from 13:40 to 14:30 (Europe/London) in Gallery Hall
