Java Language and Platform Futures: A Sneak Peek

Brian Goetz

possible improvements
  • type inference for local variables
  • taming boilerplate
    • equals, hashCode toString...
    • IDE help for writing but not reading
    • e.g. data classes class Point(int x, int y){ } (but complex issues to solve)
  • improved switch: eg pattern matching
  • project valhalla: value types / better Data layout (complex)
  • specialized generics
  • project panama: efficient native code (better JNI)
