What is Looming in Java

Track: Core Java
In the evolving landscape of software development, Java continues to be a stalwart choice for building reliable, scalable, and performant applications. The language and its ecosystem have evolved, incorporating modern paradigms and tools that cater specifically to the needs of high-scale applications. In JDK 21, java released Virtual Thread, which is known as Project Loom.

Project Loom introduces lightweight and efficient virtual threads called fibers, massively increasing resource efficiency while preserving the same simple thread abstraction for developers. In this talk we will introduce how Fibers can reduce the effort of developing and managing high throughput applications. We’ll take a quick peak at asynchronous coding styles, and then look at how Loom fits in today’s Java applications.
