Session: To Java SE 8 and Beyond

Wednesday 10.00 - 10.50
Room: Honey Badger

With the release of Java SE 7 last year the Java platform is back on the move, addressing the needs of developers as platforms and applications change. This session will briefly recap what was included in Java SE 7 and the Java Community Process before moving onto the current ideas for features in Java SE 8, focusing on Lambda expressions and modularity. Discussions are underway within Oracle about the main themes for Java SE 9 and beyond. We'll conclude with a look at some of the features that are being considered for inclusion in versions of Java as far forward as Java SE 12.
