What Next After Java Developer
The New Package:
Expected to be out in 2016, the new Java Standard Edition 9 will have lots of things in its kits. Some of the things that can be expected out of it include:
- New capabilities,
- Performance tweaks,
In fact, modularity will be the most significant change to Java 9. The effort to modularize the source code will come with a build system to enhance the capability of the same. There is a aim to design and implement a standard module system for the platform and to apply the system into the platform. The primary goals of this are to implement the platform easily and make it scalable to small devices along with improving security, maintenance, performance and provide developers with better programming tools.
Processing Updates In API:
It is expected that Java 9 will improve the features of API used for controlling and managing the processes within the operating system. The current API is associated with limitations and these limitation force developers to take the help of native codes. Moreover, the current API offers limited support for the processes of native operating system due to which developers have to set up an environment to start a process. However, in the next version, the design of the API will accommodate deployment on smaller devices with different models of operating system. It should take into account the environment where multiple virtual machines are running in the same operating system.
Segmented Code Cache:
A Java developer will also be happy with the 9th version because it aims to divide codes into segments that will help in improving performance and facilitate extensions to a great extent. The code cache will no longer have a single code heap, but segmented code heaps that will contain compiles data of specific types. This design will help developers to use separate codes with different set of properties.
Boosting The Performance:
Core Java developers aim to boost the performance of contended object monitors. This in turn will benefit real-world applications along with industry benchmarks. In fact, improvement in performance will be explored in large numbers of areas that are contended to Java monitors like cache line alignment and field recording. It is also applicable for fast Java monitor enter and exit operations. HTTP 2 will also boost the performance of loading times of web pages. Thus, the entire focus of the protocol is performance.This can pave the way for bigger success.
