More Information
  • Understand Java SE 9 platform module system (JPMS) concepts and goals
  • Understand the changes to the folder and library structure in JDK 9 and how this introduces the reliable configuration concept
  • See how JPMS provides real encapsulation to develop more secure applications
  • Build applications using the new module system
  • Know how to use the module-path instead of the class-path when starting Java applications
  • Learn by examples the different techniques that help you migrate your current code to Java SE 9 smoothly
  • Find out how to use the new jlink tool in JDK 9 to a customizable JREs that fit scaled-down devices efficiently.
  • Master creating pluggable and loosely coupled components or modules, with services, service providers, and service consumers.
  • Explore via examples how to create a service provider where you need more control over how the service implementation is initiated

This practical video series will make you a master of Java SE 9's core concepts, components, tools, and new major features, so you can become a Java Ninja. By the end of the third section, you will have mastered Java Modularity and its core JDK structure changes.

The second section introduces more advanced topics about modularity and covers all the techniques that will help you migrate your code smoothly to Java 9. The final section introduces the great new features shipped with the language to show you how to create custom runtime images (aka customized JREs) and loosely coupled modules with services, service provider, and service consumers.

All the topics are powered by examples to make the explanations practical.
