Migrating Real-World Million-Line Code Bases to Java 7: Lessons Learned

A session at JavaOne 2012

Thursday 4th October, 2012

12:30pm to 1:30pm (PST)

In enterprise development, migrating to a new version of Java can be a complex endeavor. However, the swift adoption of Java 7 by the community enables a smooth transition, if you plan ahead and take one small step at a time. In this session, you’ll hear about Info Support’s experiences with successful migrations on several large enterprise projects, such as the Dutch Railways planning system, a complex, million-line code base. The presentation shows real project statistics on performance and productivity improvements because of Java 7 and addresses several topics for migration: tools, frameworks, and language changes. It also discusses approaches to incrementally upgrading in a multiteam environment and how to minimize risk and effort.
