New Live Stream: Java Modules in Real Life
Java Modules have many benefits. They enable you to encapsulate packages and related resources and define strict accessibility rules. Introduced in Java 9 as the Java Platform Module System, or JPMS, Java Modules have proven to be somewhat tricky to use, even for experienced developers. During his guest appearance at our next IntelliJ IDEA Live Stream, Nicolai Parlog will teach us about modules. He’ll explain what they are, why we should use them, and when it is better not to. Register for the show and join us on Wednesday, July 27, at 5:00 pm CEST / 3:00 pm UTC.
Many Java projects (by some counts, over half) run on Java versions that support the module system, and Maven Central offers over 4,200 modules. If you’re thinking about creating modules for a project, you may have some questions:
- Why use modules?
- What is incremental modularization?
- What are common or tricky roadblocks?
- Where’s the exit?!
- When should I use modules and when shouldn’t I use them?
In this talk, Nicolai will answer these questions, so you can better decide whether modules are right for your project.
Everyone who is familiar with Nicolai’s community activities knows how open and helpful a person he is. He and our host Mala Gupta will help you to fully understand the topic and truly enjoy the show. Don’t forget to submit your questions using YouTube’s chat section.
