Google Cloud Platform To Launch Java 9 and 10 Support: A technical blog about Google CloudPlatform’s support for the newer versions of the Java programming language, by Google Cloud Developer Advocate Felipe Hoffa.
Google is also launching a new GCP codelab that demonstrates how to use Java 9 and 10 with Google App Engine Flexible.
According to Hoffa, developers can use the new features in Java 9 and 10 to run their code on App Engine Flexible, without having to worry about managing VMs.
Google is also encouraging GCP customers to vote for the next language that should be supported by App Engine Flexible. Go, PHP, and Python are currently leading the race with 35%, 18% and 12% votes respectively.

Google Cloud Platform To Launch Java 9 and 10 Support: A technical blog about Google CloudPlatform’s support for the newer versions of the Java programming language,
Java 9 and 10 are coming to Google Cloud Platform. New support for these versions of the popular programming language will be rolled out in Q1 2019. This announcement was made by Google at the Oracle Code One conference that is presently taking place in San Francisco.
Google Cloud has recently been investing resources in enabling Java developers to build on their platform, after having not historically done so. The company has hired on some of the best and brightest minds from the Java world, such as Principal Engineer Josh Bloch, who previously worked for Oracle as Chief Java Architect, and Patrick Chanezon who previously served as Developer Advocate at Docker.
The current versions of Java supported on GCP are Java 7 and 8. With the impending release of Java 11, these two earlier versions are now end-of-life (EOL) and will no longer receive updates and security fixes from Oracle. The new release of Java 9, which happened in 2017 and included a host of new features including JShell and modules, is also EOL with respect to commercial use.
In order to meet compliance standards many organizations still remain on these
A technical blog about Google CloudPlatform’s support for the newer versions of the Java programming language,
Java is one of the most popular programming languages in use by developers today, and we are pleased to announce that Java 9 and 10 are now fully supported on Google Cloud Platform.
Earlier this year we reported that Java SE 8 was available in Google App Engine standard environment. We’ve been working closely with our partners at Oracle, who provide the underlying JRE implementation. Thanks to them, we have added support for both Java 9 and 10 in the standard environment. Today you can use these new versions of Java with App Engine standard environment. In addition, we’ve also made it available as a beta release for App Engine flexible environment.
The above-mentioned changes will allow you to build robust apps using the latest versions of the frameworks, libraries and tools that come with Java 9 or 10. You can develop your apps locally using JDK 9 or 10 and deploy them on App Engine standard environment without making any modifications to your code. Since JDK 9 is not yet available on Debian Jessie (which is currently used in App Engine flex environment) we are providing an image based on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, which has JDK 9 installed on it by default.
Google Cloud Platform is about to introduce support for the Java 9 and 10 programming languages. The company’s official technical blog announced that Google will be making available new language versions for its Google App Engine, which is a cloud computing platform for web developers.
According to the technical blog, Java 9 was launched in September 2017. It came with more than 150 features, including JShell, improved API methods, modularity and more. Java 10, on the other hand, was released in March 2018. It came with additional local variable type inference, performance improvements and application-specific class-data sharing.
In its post, Google said it hopes to update its App Engine as soon as possible to embrace the new Java versions. The company has also added that it will collaborate with AdoptOpenJDK and Azul Systems “to make sure that we have a reliable open source distribution of the JDK.”
Java has been one of the most popular programming languages in recent years. In May 2018, developer analysis firm RedMonk released its report ranking the top 20 programming languages based on their popularity on social media sites such as GitHub and Stack Overflow. Java landed at number eight spot in RedMonk’s rankings.
Google Cloud Platform (GCP) will soon be adding support for Java 9 and 10, the search giant announced on Tuesday. The company said it has already been working on supporting these versions of the programming language for almost a year.
The latest GCP offering will be in addition to Java 8, which the company has been offering since 2013. This version of the platform was the first to add full support for all major cloud services, as well as continuous integration/continuous deployment (CI/CD) and Docker containers.
In a blog post announcing the news, Google said it had “decided to take this opportunity to improve our build and test environment and make it more modular, composable and extensible.” The company explained that this was necessary “to accommodate a wide variety of different use cases” and to enable it to “keep pace with rapidly evolving” developer tools.
Google also said that it would be launching an updated version of its popular Java runtime environment: OpenJDK 9 with HotSpot VM. This is a long-term support release that will be supported until at least September 2018 and is backward compatible with previous releases, Google said. The new version also features a number of bug fixes, as well as security enhancements.
Google Cloud Platform is a suite of public cloud computing services offered by Google. The platform includes a range of hosted services for compute, storage and application development that run on Google hardware. These services include the compute-optimized Google Compute Engine, the Google App Engine platform as a service offering, and the cloud storage service Google Cloud Storage.
Google Cloud Platform provides Developer Products for application development that run on Google hardware. This includes BigQuery for large data analysis, Cloud SQL for MySQL databases in the cloud, Cloud Datastore for scalable nonrelational storage, Prediction API for machine-learning algorithms and Translate API to integrate with other websites or software. It also provides Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) for machine learning and infrastructure services such as accessing user activity data, predictive modeling and recommendation systems.
