6:00pm - Venkat Subramaniam - Java Modules: Why and How

Java Modules are the future. However, our enterprise applications have legacy code, and lots of it. How in the world do we migrate from the old to the new? What are some of the challenges. In this presentation we will start with an introduction to modules and learn how to create them. Then we will dive into the differences between unnamed modules, automatic modules, and explicit modules. After that we will discuss some key limitations of modules, things that may surprise your developers if they are not aware of. Finally we will discuss how to migrate current applications to use modules.
