Java development update: Java 9 design with IoT by Oracle

This article is shared by Aegis professionals to make the entire Java development community aware of Java 9 design and new features that influence app performance.

Java 9 development kit is designed to revive interest of developers in Java platform. The embedded Java versions are enhanced by the IT professionals for developing enterprise level to IoT applications. JDK 9 is a Java SE prototype that has new features to enhance the control, operation system management processes, and contended locking and segmented code cache features to influence better Java performance. Other Java development Kit enhancements comprise of improvements to the JAMC, JMC, and the garbage-first GC.

As per the official announcement, Java EE 8 and next versions of Java for corporate app development will be supported by GlassFish Server Open source edition 4.1. Java EE 8 offers:

  • Enhanced HTML 5 support
  • Java API for JSON Binding 1.0
  • Bidirectional java objects mapping and JSON representations
  • REST management tools
  • API for RESTful web services 2.1
  • JSON processing 1.1

In case your developers are using Java 7 EE SDK, they can update it to include GlassFish Server 4.1, Java EE tutorial, and latest zip installer.

The market faces extreme shortage of developers who are efficient in developing Internet of Things applications for corporate sector. The reson could be lack of interoperability among the devices which build up the IoT; this limits the opportunity largely to proprietary systems. Developers’ ability to utilize Java language from back-end systems to embedded systems and everything else offers possibility to revise these interoperability limitations.

The optimum use of Java is gaining more attention due to demand of IoT apps in the business world. These apps have to be robust to support bidirectional data transmission in order to set an IoT function on automation. The IoT is introduced to make Java more useful and relevant than ever. The professionals are bringing a complete IoT technologies suite that comprises of everything- database to app servers. As per the statistical report, it is expected that the market will have over 50 million devices connected to the internet by 2020. The developers need to think over software type on which devices will be running instead of finding exact connected devices numbers.

Will this update get successful in reviving interest of developers in Java? What do you think? Share your views or thoughts regarding the topic.
