Java Value Types: What is it and why are they important

Donnerstag, 9. Mai 2019
17:00 - 18:00

Value types are new, currently not existing, and yet features of the Java language and the JVM that are developed in the project Valhalla. The introduction of value types will greatly enhance the capabilities of the Java ecosystem, making it a tool for problems that are currently solved using other programming languages or applying special techniques that are more in the shady area of hacking than program design and development. It will also be made possible to use the JVM (or GraalVM by that time) for languages like Go or Swift, which cannot effectively be executed on the JVM. This talk is an introduction to the new features and it is also about the philosophy and practical considerations about value types. After this talk, you will understand what value types really are, what they are good for, and will be ready to experiment with it using the available pre-release code as well as be ready to use it professionally as soon as the feature is released.
