Java's Hidden Gems: Tools and Libraries

This session is a whirlwind tour of many lesser known, but very interesting, Java tools and libraries. We'll have a sneak peak at dozens of tools to improve security, builds, architecture, tests, and other areas.

About seventy examples are available on GitHub and we'll go over as many as possible during the session, briefly explaining the tool or library and showing some code examples. Pitest, TestContainers, Gatling, JDK Mission Control, Apache POI, JavaPoet, Microstream, OptaPlanner, Apache Spark, Togglz, OWASP dependency check, Renovate, Apache Maven Daemon, and OpenRewrite are some examples of the tools and libraries covered in this session.

After this session you'll surely have learned something new, which you can further investigate whenever you want to apply it.
