Java Rocks More Than Ever

In a series of blogs full of technical detail and cross-platform comparison, senior developer Geert Bevin from ZeroTurnaround gives 10 reasons why Java is a great technology. He built software for musical instruments using C++, with Juce Library and CPython, and realized that he missed a lot from the Java ecosystem.

He has written the first six blogs, which include Java Compiler, the core API, Open Source, the Java Memory Model, HighPerformance VM and Bytecode. In his first blog about Java Compiler, he gives examples and recommendations on how to use the JVM's just-in-time, the compiler code versus the architecture, runtime rather than static or dynamic linking. 

Upcoming topics include: 
Intelligent IDEs
Profiling Tools
Backwards Compatibility
Maturity With Innovation

The JVM Language Summit - 2012

A new article, now up on otn/java, provides information about the upcoming 2012 JVM Language Summit, scheduled for July 30–August 1, 2012 on the Oracle campus in Santa Clara. The Summit brings together top language designers, compiler writers, tool builders, runtime engineers, and VM architects, from around the world for an open technical collaboration.

Summit organizer Brian Goetz of Oracle remarks: "We've been running the JVM Language Summit for the past five years. The attendees at the Summit are the people who are making languages on the JVM happen—there are typically architect-level representatives from many JVM language communities including JRuby, Jython, Scala, Groovy, and Clojure. This is a tremendous opportunity for the community to influence the future direction of the JVM and for us to learn more about how the JVM is being used, where it shines, and where it falls short."

The schedule is equally divided between traditional presentations, most of which are limited to 40 minutes, and informal workshops, which consist of small facilitated discussion groups among self-selected participants to enable deeper dives into the subject matter. There will also be impromptu lightning talks.
