Real-World Compatibility and the Java Promise

Ever wonder how Java achieves such success in fulfilling the “write once, run anywhere” (WORA) promise? In this session, a senior member of the IBM Java team speaks candidly about the many difficulties Java faces behind the scenes in terms of compatibility and the various perspectives to consider.

The presentation describes areas such as bugs, bug fixes, algorithmic implementation assumptions, optimizations, multiple JVM implementations, and language changes. Hear how IBM is making Java better by championing compatibility and contributing directly to OpenJDK. By the end of the session, you will have clear insights into the complexity of the issues and how they’re addressed in the OpenJDK ecosystem.
