Migrating to Modules

All Days,Day 2 - 28th Nov 15:20-16:10 All Halls,Main Hall #Influencers Advanced

Java has finally shipped with modules! You’ve attended presentations and read articles about Java 9 modules, but how do you actually go about modularizing an application? This session will present a practical example in which an application is modularized. Application architecture, dependencies, and tooling will be covered. Hopefully this will give you a better idea of what is involved in modularizing an application and the benefits it provides.

Introduction to CDI

All Days,Day 2 - 28th Nov 10:30-12:20 All Halls,Master Class Hall Novice

Contexts and Dependency was introduced in Java EE 6 and has since become a core technology. This lab will cover the basic features of CDI 1 and 2. Everything from injection and scopes to decorators, transactions, concurrency, and testing will be covered.

Exploring Java Heap Dumps

All Days,Day 1 - 27th Nov 13:30-14:20 All Halls,Hall 3.1 #J2D Advanced Advanced

Memory leaks are not always simple or easy to find. Heap dumps from production systems are often gigantic (4+ gigs) with millions of objects in memory. Simple spot checking with traditional tools is woefully inadequate in these situations, especially with real data. Leaks can be entire object graphs with enormous amounts of noise. This session will show you how to build custom tools using the Apache NetBeans Profiler/Heapwalker APIs. Using these APIs, you can read and analyze Java heaps programmatically to ask really hard questions. This gives you the power to analyze complex object graphs with tens of thousands of objects in seconds.
