What does JDK 9 mean to you? Modularization is the first thing that comes to mind, but there is a lot more. Come discover less-well-known but important technologies that Oracle has been working on with partners such as Intel to provide a higher-performance, lower-footprint, scalable Java with JDK 9. This session talks about JDK 9 optimizations spanning support for larger vectors with enhanced vectorization, optimized math libraries, cryptography and compression acceleration, compact strings, new APIs with associated optimized implementation, and many more features that help big data, cloud, microservices, HPC, and FSI applications.
