Apache Maven supports ALL Java

Day 2 /  / Track 2  /  EN

With the release train we can expect a new version of Java every 6 months. This means that tools like Maven should try to keep with this pace. Especially Java 9 came with some new features, and Maven managed to support these features. Maven found an elegant solution to work with modulepaths and classpaths without any need for developers to specify which jars belongs where.

This session will highlight the most important features developers should know to work with Java 9 and 10, combined with some practical tips and warnings.
