Java9 and REPL
Forget debugging, welcome joy and productivity
Oh Java, my old, lousy and boiler plaited friend. For ages, trying anything new (which luckily wasn’t that frequent afterall) required starting a new project, followed by a
Sandbox class and a
public static void main method. Alternatively, a simple JUnit test was a nice entrypoint as well - if we were lucky enough to have some dependency management sorted out.
