We Can Do Better - IBM's Vision for the Next Generation of Java Runtimes
There is no question that the Java platform is successful. There are mature high performance runtimes, a rich ecosystem with extensive libraries, a tools ecosystem, and broad innovative community supporting the platform. Even with all these great things, software development remains difficult, the reuse of components elusive, and new runtime requirements for cloud, multicore, big data, and security are pushing the limits of these runtimes.
By leveraging modularity and service architectures, coupled with runtime enhancements, we can enable continued innovation while maintaining compatibility, improving performance, and making it easier to create, evolve and reuse software components.
Come hear IBM's Chief Technology Officer for Java give a technology perspective on what needs to change in Java to address the challenges of producing modular software in the future.
