Reviews

“Java 9 revealed: for early adoption and migration gives a rather complete description of what Java 9 will be all about. The description is accompanied by detailed instructions on how to guide your code migration … . People concerned with Java 9 should definitely read the book. It does a great job at smoothly and incrementally presenting the complexity of Java 9.” (Computing Reviews, August, 2017)
