Java Annotated Monthly – June 2018

No really big Java news this month, but plenty of good articles to help us to improve as developers and as team members.  There’s how-tos for Java 8, 9 and 10, some presentations from conferences earlier in the year, and a smattering of design, architecture and culture information.



The faster release cadence means all the different versions of Java that are current production-ready are just going to be in the plain ol’ Java section from now on.  There’s still plenty of Java 8 how-tos coming out, more information about how to use Java 9 features now people are using them in anger, and “var” is still causing discussion.

Languages, Frameworks and Libraries

This month this section is “stuff that’s Java-related but not in the SDK”.


SOLID never goes out of fashion in OO circles, and it’s always worth re-reminding ourselves of the fundamentals.


I like to be able to put articles that aren’t just about code here, so expect to see a Culture section pop up more often.


As usual, JetBrains will be at a number of events in June, either with a booth, a talk, or sometimes both! Looks like the week of 11th June in particular is pretty busy for everyone.
