HTY-2357 Modules in One Lesson | Devoxx
java Java Language

Auditorium

Thursday from 1:45 PM til 2:35 PM

A practical introduction, with live coding, to Project Jigsaw and the Java Platform Module System in Java 9. We’ll construct and hack on a simple modular application to explore the essential aspects of the module system. We’ll see how the module system ensures reliable configuration and strong encapsulation, how it improves security, and how it makes the JDK itself configurable.
