Java Magazine: Java SE 8

The March/April issue of Java Magazine jam-packed with information to get you started with Java SE 8, a revolutionary release of the world’s #1 development platform. 

The biggest change in Java SE 8—what some have called the most significant upgrade to the Java programming language ever—is lambda expressions, or closures. “Lambda expressions are anonymous methods that provide developers with a simple and compact means for representing behavior as data,” explains Brian Goetz, Java language architect at Oracle. “In a few years, developers will wonder how they ever lived without [them].”

In “Java 8: Explore the Possibilities,” we give you an overview of lambdas, the Nashorn JavaScript engine, Compact Profiles, the new date and time API, the role of community, and more. We also explore the new features that make Java ME 8 a comprehensive platform for connected devices and show you how to get started with embedded development. There are also articles on processing data with Java SE 8 Streams and the benefits of type annotations. Get started with Java 8 today with this issue of Java Magazine.

Java Magazine: Big Data

Simply put, big data is a big deal. As the volume, velocity, and variety of big data continue to increase, so do the opportunities for creating new applications for big data. The new issue of Java Magazine is all about big data. The good news is that Java developers are well positioned to take advantage of this opportunity because so many of the tools for big data are built on the Java Virtual Machine (JVM). 

Most of the pages in this issue to are dedicated to big data:

  • In our Q&A with Oracle’s Dan McClary, we explore why Java and big data are such a good fit, and what some of the implications of big data are for Java developers.
  • We also get hands-on with many of the available tools for big data. In “Big Data Processing with Java,” Fabiane Nardon and Fernando Babadopulos help you determine whether you’ve got a big data problem and introduce Apache Hadoop and some of the other tools that you can use to produce faster and more-efficient applications.
  • Tom White, author of Hadoop: the Definitive Guide, provides an introduction to Hadoop; Kim Ross explores Apache Cassandra; and Trisha Gee discusses the flexibility of MongoDB.  
  • “Power to the People” shows Java and big data in action, with sizeable results: Opower customers have saved more than US$350 million dollars on their utility bills and reduced greenhouse gases at the same time.

Learn how big data is or will change the way you work in this issue of Java Magazine.

How Java Helped Team USA Win the America's Cup

Congratulations ORACLE TEAM USA!

The team leveraged a lot of technology--including Java--to win the America's Cup. One member of the sailing team was on the team for both his sailing and programming skills. Here's a video with Gilberto Nobili, sailor and Java devloper.

While sailing, they "collect about 3,000 variables a second." The code provides real-time data while they are racing. When asked why he used Java, Nobili explained that he needed Java's "write once, run anywhere" ability. "I knew the system needed to be able to run on multiple devices and multiple operating systems," he explained, "Java provides the best way to do that." You can learn more in the article "Wind Powered. Data Powered" from this summer's Java Magazine.
