Next Issue: Wednesday, May 4, 2022
My newsletter is published on the first Wednesday of every month.
This issue is late because I gave a talk at QCon London and updated all job charts, I spoke at JavaLand in Germany and the Google Developer Group Milton Keynes.
Popularity trends: Kotlin, Postgres, Jakarta EE, and Flutter are the “losers of job ad mentions” this month. Quarkus is #3 in job ads mentions for the first time (behind Spring Boot & Jakarta EE). Also, see my recommendations for a JVM language, a database, a back-end framework, a web framework, and a mobile app framework.
OpenJDK, Micronaut, Eclipse, VS Code, and Netbeans had major releases. Maven, Gradle, Spring Boot, Quarkus, and DropWizard had minor ones.
New & Noteworthy
Java 18 is here, zero-day exploit hits Spring Boot, and Java Heap Deep Dive, Part 2.
