If youre a programmer who wants to stay updated according to the industry standards, then this Learning Path is for you. Java 9 is the most recent update to the list of Java languages. Java 9 is the successor of Java 8 and this version is making a lot of developers happy due to a variety of reasons. Java 9 incorporates a plethora of new changes like the Java platform module system, restructuring the JDKs and JREs runtime modules, defining a new URI scheme for naming modules, classes, and so on. In this Learning Path, you will learn functional and reactive programming using Java 9. functional programming includesthe introduction to functional Programming and installation. Application development with Java 9 can be summarized in these words: More Power; Less Code. Under reactive programming, you will get to learn about the basics of reactive programming and understand the Flow API. You will also get to learn about the various operators, and learn about the unit and concurrency testing used in reactive programming. You will also learn about Lambda expressions, Stream operations, sequential data processing and parallel streams. By the end of this Learning Path, you will be able to successfully write powerful functional and reactive programs with the help of Java 9.
