    Java 9 is going to provide several developer tools which complement the modular system and enhance developer productivity.

    I plan to give overview of new Java Linker tool that would assist in creating a modular Java runtime. "jlink" assembles and optimizes a set of modules and their dependencies and "jmod" for creating modular packages with class files and resources. "jimage" which is 5x more performant than zip or jar formats.

    I plan to give interactive session in how to create a modular JDK image with specified root modules using jlink. Describe the plugin api for extension using custom modules.

    I shall give insights on tools usage and internals which would help developers in decision making along with benchmark results.

    The Eclipse IDE provides a lot of powerful features and capabilities. With so much functionality at your disposal, many users don't use the full potential of the IDE. To be most productive, mastering your IDE is as important as mastering your source code.

    In this talk, I will unleash many invaluable tips and tricks that will allow you to better use the Eclipse IDE and make you more productive in your routine development tasks.

    Once you know how to leverage these powerful features of Eclipse to the fullest, you are going to enjoy working with Eclipse more than you could ever expect.

    I will cover various areas from efficiently organizing your workspace content to navigating, coding and debugging in Eclipse, and provide you a glimpse of some cool new Eclipse features.

    With Java 8 out the door, it is an exciting time to be a Java developer. The new constructs in Java 8 look nice but may not be so intuitive for developers. This is where Eclipse helps you to become more productive while writing and understanding programs with Java 8 constructs. I will show you how to make your experience with Java 8 more convenient and pleasant by using some new tooling features provided by Eclipse as part of its Java 8 support.

    I will also highlight useful tools like the AST and Java Element views, plug-in spies etc. that make working with Eclipse more effective.

    During this talk, you will have many "Ah, I didn't know Eclipse can do that!" moments. Some of the examples include:

    • Determining who last modified a line of code and when
    • Popping up an in-place outline of the element at cursor position
    • Bookmarks
    • Split editors
    • Grouping and sharing breakpoints
    • Print-points
    • Smartly stepping into a single method within a series of chained or nested method calls while using Java debugger
    • Identifying and navigating to the functional method from lambda expressions and method references

    Come and learn about the best Eclipse IDE capabilities that you might not be knowing yet. There will be something new for everybody.
