The state of Java 9

Java 9 Standard Edition should bring big benefits to developersmdash;as soon as it actually arrives.The planned update to the popular enterprise language and platform is set to offer a world of new capabilities.

Among these are modularity, an experimental version of ahead-of-time compilation, and a REPL (read-eval-print-loop).

But the release keeps getting stalled by the major overhaul required for modularization.[ The big 4 Java IDEs reviewed: See how Eclipse, NetBeans, JDeveloper, and IntelliJ IDEA stack up. | Keep up with hot topics in programming with InfoWorld's App Dev Report newsletter. ]Already delayed several times before (it was set to arrive in September 2016 at one point), the upgrade is now due as Java Development Kit 9 in September 2017.

The release has been mired in disagreements pitting Java steward Oracle against major Java participants such as Red Hat and IBM over whether modularization is on the right track.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

Java 9 delayed due to modularity controversy

Java 9 wonrsquo;t be released on July 27 after all.Oracle has proposed that Java 9 Standard Edition be delayed until September so the open source community that is finalizing Java 9 can address the ongoing controversy over a planned but later rejected approach to modularity, said Georges Saab, vice president of software development in the Java platform group at Oracle and chairman of the OpenJDK governing board.[ The big 4 Java IDEs reviewed: See how Eclipse, NetBeans, JDeveloper, and IntelliJ IDEA stack up. | Keep up with hot topics in programming with InfoWorld's App Dev Report newsletter. ]The Java Platform Module System, a key capability of Java Development Kit 9 and the subject of Java Specification Request (JSR) 376, failed in a vote by the Java executive committee earlier this month.

Faster machine learning is coming to the Linux kernel

It's been a long time in the works, but a memory management featurenbsp;intended to give machine learning or other GPU-powered applications anbsp;major performance boostnbsp;is close to making it into one of the next revisions of the kernel.Heterogenous memory management (HMM) allows a devicersquo;s drivernbsp;to mirror the address space for a process under its own memory management. As Red Hat developer Jeacute;rocirc;me Glissenbsp;explains, this makes it easier for hardware devices like GPUs to directly access the memory of a process without the extra overhead of copying anything.
It also doesn't violate the memory protection features afforded by modern OSes.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
