It’s only two weeks since the last Java Annotated Monthly and we have another huge issue! I’d like to say March’s edition is dedicated to International Women’s Day, and it can be if you like. To be honest, the inclusion of women contributors in this month’s newsletter is, in fact, nothing special or new. It’s the result of several years of hard work identifying new sources of videos and articles, intentionally expanding the people I follow on Twitter, and placing effort into amplifying voices that deserve to be heard. There is still plenty of room for improvement though so I will not relax and say “it’s OK, we’re diverse now”. Because we’re not.

Java News

THREAD: Background and explanation for deprecation of the java.lang.Object constructor.

This work is in the Valhalla prototype repo, not the JDK mainline. What eventually arrives in the mainline will likely differ. Existing code will continue working or have a migration path. 1/

Culture & Community

Happy International Women’s Day (March 8th)! And because someone is bound to ask, November 19.

Also, this section just keeps getting bigger. This month I’ve included a bunch of books, too, as I’ve been reading more actual paper things in the last year or so and, who knew, I’m learning a lot from them.

Sometimes I consider re-focusing the newsletter on just Java-specific stuff. I do not want to do this. I believe developers are people first and a language-typist second. Or third. Or maybe even waaaay down the list.

And Finally

A chance to catch up on the other IntelliJ IDEA and JetBrains blog posts from this month.

IntelliJ IDEA 2020.1 (currently EAP) not only supports the new #Java14 Record syntax, but can generate new record classes for you to help you get started. Try it now! https://www.jetbrains.com/idea/nextversion/ … (download #Java 14: https://jdk.java.net/14/ ) #TheDriveToDevelop

We are hiring!! I’m looking for a Java/JVM Developer Advocate to join my team. I’m interested in talking to developers who are thinking of switching into an advocacy career, i.e. you don’t need to be an experienced speaker/blogger to apply.

If you have any interesting or useful Java / JVM news to share via Java Annotated Monthly, leave a comment or drop me a message via Twitter.
