In Java, a typical workflow involves restarting the application with (almost) every class change. For some applications, it is not a problem at all; for others, it is a disaster, from HotSwap to agent-based reloading. This session takes a look at the options available for Java class reloading. There are plenty of tools you can use for this task: rely on standard JVM HotSwap, redesign your application to rely on dynamic class loaders, comprehend the Zen of OSGi, or integrate a reloading agent. Every option has its own drawbacks and benefits, and the presentation takes a deep dive into the subject. Come get a better understanding of class reloading technologies and become a more productive Java developer.
