Java Magazine Edition about Libraries [63994]
Oracle, May 30th 2017

Andrew Binstock blogs, "In an age of frameworks, there still remains a supreme need for libraries, those useful collections of classes and methods that save us a huge amount of work. For all the words spilled on the reusability of object orientation (OO), it's clear that code reuse has been consistently successful only at the library level. It's hard to say whether that's a failure of the promises of OO or whether those promises were unlikely to ever deliver the hoped-for reusability..."

Oracle preps developers for Java 9 upgrade [60740]
InfoWorld, February 17th, 2017

Oracle has released a guide to help developers move from Java 8 to Java 9

Paul writes in InfoWorld, "In preparation for the planned July release of Java 9, Oracle has released guidance for moving applications over to the forthcoming upgrade, which features big changes through modularization.

The newly released JDK (Java Development Kit) 9 Migration Guide notes that every update brings with it binary, source, and behavioral incompatibilities with previous versions. 'The modularization of the Java SE Platform brings many benefits but also many changes,' Oracle said. 'Code that uses only official Java SE Platform APIs and supported JDK-specific APIs should continue to work without change.' But code that uses certain features or JDK-internal APIs may not run or may give different results, the company cautioned..."

Javapocalypse soon! Oracle warns devs to bin plugins, fast [60525]
The Register, February 6th, 2017

The last browser to support NPAPI plugins - Firefox 52 ESR - should appear in March

Simon writes in The Register, "Oracle's warned developers who still expect browsers to run code developed for Java plugins to get busy finding an alternative.

The developers behind all major browsers have decided the NPAPI framework invented last millennium by Netscape has had its day, because there are now better ways to do multimedia and other fun stuff inside a browser. Chrome therefore binned plugins in 2015, IE gave up ages ago, the fat lady sang at Opera during 2016 and Safari has stopped bothering too..."

Enhancing ICS Mappings with Custom Java Classes by Ricardo Ferreira [59466]
By Juergen Kress, January 4th, 2017

Juergen writes, "One of the most common tasks performed during the creation of integrations in ICS (Integration Cloud Service) is the implementation of mappings. In a nutshell, mappings are the resources that ICS uses to allow messages coming from the configured source application to be sent to the configured target application. Failure in properly defining and configuring these mappings directly impacts how integrations are going to behave while sending messages downstream..."
