Your pre-enrollment for sessions will be validated onsite. We will hold your pre-enrollment until 10 minutes prior to the session start time, at which point your seat may be given to someone else if you are not present.

Going Native: Bringing FFI to the JVM [CON3979] Write once, run anywhere has served us well over the years, but eventually everyone needs to use code that doesn’t run on the JVM. There are native libraries out there for crypto, graphics, data stores, computation, user interfaces, and much more, but they’ve been hard or impossible to use from JVM-based code. Until now. The Java Native Runtime (JNR) is a high-speed foreign function interface (FFI) for calling native code from Java without ever writing a line of C. Based on the success of JNR, JDK Enhancement Proposal (JEP) 191 will bring FFI to OpenJDK as an internal API. And hopefully a JSR for Java 9 will tightly integrate and standardize an FFI API. Learn more in this session. This talk will explore current and future FFI options, and show you how to help.
