Spring Framework 5.0 on JDK 9

Core Spring

Spring Framework 5.0 is the first generation of the core framework explicitly targeting JDK 8 as well as JDK 9, allowing a smooth early-adopter upgrade to JDK 9. This talk illustrates the general compatibility challenges for frameworks on JDK 9, with lessons learned from Spring Framework 5.0's development. It also provides concrete advice for upgrading Spring applications to JDK 9, on the classpath as well as on the module path (Jigsaw), highlighting the benefits and the tradeoffs involved.
