In the book, we’ll cover the new features of Java 7 (NIO.2, Project Coin, InvokeDynamic, New Concurrency, G1 Garbage Collector).
We’ll also study three non-Java languages (Groovy, Clojure and Scala) – and most importantly, we’ll explain what they mean to you as a working developer.
In addition, we’ll place a special emphasis on two areas – performance tuning and concurrency. These have a new spin on them in Java 7 (and for concurrency, we'll also explain how the non-Java languages do things differently).
Last but not least we tie in the new and exciting material as well as showcasing some important software craftsmanship techniques by taking you through an example (imaginary) project
