The essential Java 9 feature you probably never heard of

Java 9 is set to release in July 2017, and it will come with a list of new and revised features, methods, and other elements. In our search through the JDK enhancement proposals (JEP), we came across JEP 266. It holds some interesting updates to CompletableFuture, Concurrency updates and support for Reactive Streams, that caught our attention.
In the following post we take a deeper look into JEP 266, go over the improvements it has to offer and talk about one very interesting feature we bet will be one of the most used Java 9 features. Let’s go.
