The vJUG, a virtual Java user group, presents live streaming technical sessions about topics related to Java, JVM, Java EE, Internet of Things and more. Organized by Mani Sarkar and Simon Maple from the London Java Community, their aim is to get the greatest minds and speakers of the Java industry to give talks and presentations in the form of webinars and live streaming from JUG meetups.
First session: How is Java/JVM built? Tuesday, March 24, 2015 at 14:45 UTC, 15:45 in Germany, 10:45am in New York, 7:45am in San Francisco, and 22:45 in Beijing
Mani Sarkar and Daniel Bryant will give an overview of the Adopt OpenJDK program. They’ll explain why developers should get involved, how to participate, and how front-end developers can take advantage of the Adopt OpenJDK. Watch the session live at http://nighthacking.com/event/javaland-2015/
Second session: What's coming in Java.Next? Wednesday, March 25, 2015 at 14:45 UTC, 15:45 in Germany, 10:45am in New York, 7:45am in San Francisco, and 22:45 in Beijing
Learn from Heather VanCura how you can take part in Java technology by Adopting a JSR. This session give a brief overview of the Adopt-a-JSR program. Andres Almiray will discuss JSR 377, Desktop|Embedded Application API; Anatole Tresch will discuss JSR 354, Money & Currency API; and Ed Burns will discuss the two JSRs he is currently leading, JSR 369, Java Servlet 4.0 Specification and JSR 372, JavaServer Faces (JSF 2.3) Specification.
Two sessions are scheduled for next week. They are live from the JavaLand Conference in Germany, in partnership with the Nighthacking community. You can watch them online at http://nighthacking.com/event/javaland-2015/

• JVM Reaction to Memory Pressure: “Memory pressure” is a property that represents the total memory usage (RAM) on the system. This new feature can be leveraged to reduce the amount of memory used on a system where multiple JVMs are deployed and control the amount of memory designated to be consumed by each JVM, avoiding Out of Memory Errors (OOMEs) from occurring.
• Improvements to the native packager: Enables developers to create native-feel applications that do not require clients to have an existing Java Runtime installed. These self-contained applications can then be deployed into areas like the Mac app store. The application developer has full control over the runtime and application entry points.
• Ability to modernize the JavaFX stack on Mac OS X: The JavaFX media stack has been ported on Mac OS X® from QTKit and Quicktime, which have been deprecated, to the newer AVFoundation framework. With this, developers using the JavaFX media stack can now gain Mac App Store acceptance and have the opportunity to have their applications released on the Mac App Store.

The seventh annual JVM Language Summit took place during three days earlier this week. "It is a small room gathering of JVM and language implementers" explains JVM Architect John Rose. The number of attendees is intentionally limited so they can discuss topics with presenters and each other. The talks and discussions were about " the use of the JVM to implement new languages, and language constructs. What the pain-points are and how to evolve the JVM to fix the pain-points." Watch John's interview and learn about Valhalla and Panama, two new Oracle projects related to the JVM.
The summit sessions will be available online for free in the coming weeks.
