In this new release, seven JDK Enhancement Proposals are presented to improve developer productivity, the Java language, and the platform’s performance, stability, and security.
JavaOne 2022, which will take place in Las Vegas between October 17 and 20, will showcase Java 19’s key capabilities.
The world’s number one programming language and development platform, Java 19, has been released by Oracle today, the latest version of the world’s most popular programming language and development platform. The Java 19 (Oracle JDK 19) platform delivers thousands of performance, stability, and security improvements, including enhancements to the platform that will help developers improve productivity and drive innovation throughout the organisation. At JavaOne 2022, which will take place in Las Vegas from October 17-20, Oracle will demonstrate the latest capabilities of Java 19, including a keynote broadcast that will be broadcast on dev.java/ at 9:00 a.m. Pacific Time on Tuesday, September 20 at 9:00 a.m. Pacific Time.
We need to continue collaborating with the developer community to keep Java going. As the steward of Java, Oracle is steadfastly committed to providing developers and enterprises with the latest tools to help them create innovative apps and services,” said Georges Saab, Oracle senior vice president of development, Java Platform and Chair of the OpenJDK Governing Board. As a result of the tireless work of the Java community around the world, the powerful new enhancements in Java 19 are a testament to the monumental work they have done.”
Updates and improvements to the Java Development Kit (JDK) are provided by seven JDK Enhancement Proposals (JEPs). Updates are primarily follow-up preview features that improve on earlier releases.
Among JDK 19’s language improvements are Record Patterns and Pattern Matching for Switch from OpenJDK project Amber; library enhancements for interoperability with non-Java code (Foreign Functions and Memory API) and vector instructions (Vector API) from OpenJDK project Panama; and the first previews for Project Loom (Virtual Threads and Structured Concurrency), which will drastically simplify the process of writing and maintaining Java-based applications with high throughput.
IDC’s research vice president for software development, Arnal Dayaratna, said that Java developers are increasingly seeking tools to build highly functional applications for deployment in the cloud, on-premises, and hybrid environments. Java 19 meets these requirements and shows how the Java ecosystem is well-positioned to meet future developers’ and enterprises’ needs.”
Oracle releases new Java features every six months using a predictable release schedule. This cadence ensures Java’s pervasiveness across a wide range of organisations and industries by delivering continuous improvements to the platform’s performance, stability, and security.
