What’s This?

This is the Java Full-Stack Report for January 2022. It has news, technology recommendations, important releases, and an editorial.

Table Of Contents

New & Noteworthy

Critical Log4j Vulnerability Log4Shell with Zero-Day Exploits, Garbage Collection Improvements from JDK 8 to JDK 17, Red Hat Reluctant on Proposed 2-Year Java LTS Cadence, JetBrains IDEs Get Remote Development, JetBrains Clones Visual Studio Code - But At What Price, An Oral History of Stack Overflow – Told By its Founding Team, and Benedict Evans’ Annual Tech Presentation.

Technology Index

My technology recommendations are based on popularity, industry analysis, and my 23 years of Java experience. I measure popularity with job ads from 63 countries, online training students, Stack Overflow questions, and Google searches.

Release Radar

Last month saw new releases for Gradle, Spring Boot, Quarkus, DropWizard, IntelliJ, and Eclipse.


I believe Log4Shell is Java’s biggest crisis ever. How did we handle Log4Shell? And how can we prevent another Log4Shell? My answers are in this month’s editorial: Log4Shell Shows The Need for “Trustworthy Java”.
