Java 9 adds some long awaited and powerful new features, as well as some migration challenges. In this presentation we’ll go over what’s new, and what it takes to make the jump. We’ll also review a case study of making a third-party Java Collections library (Eclipse Collections) Java 9–compatible. You will get an overview of all the steps taken and the evolution of a final, Java 9–compatible product. Also covered will be the available tooling, and simple yet practical tips and tricks for upgrading.
