Modern Java, från version 8

Java version 8, införde tre begrepp som i grunden förändrar ditt sätt att designa programkoden inuti metoderna/funktionerna av en klass. Dessa tre är Lambda Expressions, Data Stream Pipelines samt Asynchronous Computation. Java version 9, förändrade vårt sätt att designa Java applikationer, eftersom det nya modulsystemet (JPMS) är så pass genomgripande och skapar möjligheter för snabb uppstart av en Java applikationer och eliminering av class-not-found problem. Denna kurs vänder sig till dig som idag arbetar med en tidigare version av Java och önskar att snabbt komma igång med att tillämpa alla nyheter i språket och standardbiblioteket.

  • Oracle’s new licensing strategy with Java 11 and onward
  • Using OpenJDK

JShell - The Java REPL

  • What is JShell
  • Usage

  • Understanding snippets
  • Using jshell from within a Java program

Selected Features of Java 9/10/.../latest

  • Automatic type inference of local variables
  • Direct compilation and execution of single-source Java programs
  • Writing Java programs as shell scripts
  • The new system logger

Functional Interfaces

Functional interfaces is a syntactic foundation for lambda expressions covered in the next chapter. Here we discuss what it is and other syntactic enhancements of interfaces in Java to support the introduction of lambda expressions.

  • What is a functional interface
  • Default method
  • Method and constructor reference
  • Functional interfaces in the Java API

Lambda Expressions

Lambda expressions (aka closures or anonymous functions) is much welcome addition to the Java syntax, and the fundamental building block on virtually almost everything else we cover in this course.

  • What is a lambda expression (aka closure)
  • Basic syntax
  • Dealing with free variables
  • Limitations of the type system
  • Currying

Selected Java API Class Updates

Of course, have all the collection classes been augmented to support lambdas. Here we walk you through the changes both for collection classes and others as well.

  • Review of the most important container classes
  • Lambda oriented methods in the collection classes
  • Optional
  • The Java 8 API explorer

Data Stream Pipelines

Java has always been about data-structures and its organization. What you did inside the method of a class was left to your discretion, until now. Say hello, to data streams. After you have seen the merits of writing functional code as a pipeline chain of filters, transformations and aggregators, you will never go back. Trust us on this.

  • What is stream and pipeline
  • Stream sources
  • Bounded and unbounded streams
  • Number streams
  • Parallel streams
  • Filters and matchers
  • Mappers and aggregators
  • Numeric aggregators
  • Understanding collect()
  • Understanding reduce()
  • Using the Collectors utility
  • Special filters
  • Using Map and FlatMap
  • Sorting and shuffling
  • The Java 8 Streams Cheat Sheet

Modules

What is modules in Java 9 (JPMS)

  • Changes to your source code directory organization
  • The module-info descriptor
  • Overview of the sub-divided Java API into modules
  • Changes to the JDK install directory
  • Developing a small multi-modules application
  • JUNit5 test suite
  • Project directory content
  • Execution on the command-line, using the java command
  • How to create module JAR files
  • How to make a module JAR file “executable”
  • Execution based on a module JARs
  • Complete shell-script for compilation, packaging and execution
  • Listing dependencies with jdeps
  • Creating a shrink-wrapped JRE using jlink

Threaded Computation

Short overview of how the threading support has evolved in Java and a motivator and background for the next chapter.

Asynchronous Computation

Asynchronous computation has over the last half-decade emerged as the most important computation paradigm, because of how efficient it handles system resources and scales way beyond threaded computation. In this chapter you will learn all you need to know in order to write you own asynchronous computation chains using the new CompletableFuture class. We will also show you how to combine Stream with CompletableFuture.
