Anyone who knows software development knows about the Java Virtual Machine. The Java Virtual Machine is responsible for interpreting Java byte code and translating it into actions. In the beginning, Java was the only programming language used for the JVM. But increasing complexity of the language and the remarkable performance of the JVM created an opening for a new generation of programming languages. If you want to build a strong foundation with the Java Virtual Machine and get started with popular modern programming languages, then this book is for you.
The book will begin with a general introduction of the JVM and its features, which are common to the JVM languages, helping you get abreast with its concepts. It will then dive into explaining languages such as Java, Scala, Clojure, Kotlin, and Groovy and will show how to work with each language, their features, use cases, and pros and cons. By writing example projects in those languages and focusing on each language's strong points, it will help you find the programming language that is most appropriate for your particular needs.
By the end of the book, you will have written multiple programs that run on the Java Virtual Machine and know about the differences between the various languages.
Style and approach
This practical, example-filled guide will help you get started with the JVM and some of its most popular languages.
About this Bundle
Learn the fundamentals of Java and help streamline your development with help from the Java Programming Java EE, Microservices and Testing Bundle.
Featuring 20 new-to-Fanatical eBooks across three tiers, this collection not only has a big title, it also a huge array of insightful guides to match - teaching you how to build reliable and high-performance applications and much more.
Choose Tier One and you’ll get five eBooks focused on tackling all kinds of performance-related issues and enhancing your development skills with Java’s state-of-the-art features. This tier includes Design Patterns and Best Practices in Java, in which you’ll explore the traditional Java design patterns and get to know the new functional features of Java, as well as understanding the OOP and FP paradigms.
Opt for Tier Two and you’ll receive five additional eBook titles with an emphasis on developing microservices, and crafting effective, business-oriented Java EE applications. With Java EE 8 Application Development, you’ll develop applications by taking advantage of the latest versions of CDI, Security, Servlets, and JSF and other Java EE specifications.
In addition, you’ll also learn how to implement RESTful web services using the new JAX-RS 2.1 API, which also includes support for Server-Sent Events (SSE) and the new reactive client API.
If you choose Tier Three, you’ll gain access to all 20 of these fantastic titles, increasing your knowledge on all things Java related. Hands-On Cloud-Native Applications with Java and Quarkus will help you seamlessly integrate imperative and reactive programming models to build modern Java applications - while Mastering Microservices with Java - Third Edition helps you gain a better understanding of how to implement and design reactive microservices.
The eBooks included in this bundle are available in EPUB, MOBI, and PDF formats.
