Java 9 which was expected to release on July 9 won’t be releasing on that date due to the ongoing controversy over a planned but later rejected the approach to modularity, said Georges Saab, vice president of software development in the Java platform group at Oracle and chairman of the OpenJDK governing board.

The company decided to reschedule its release date after several big companies such as IBM, Red Hat, and Twitter voted against it earlier this month in Java executive committee stating that it would be too disruptive to developers and would fragment the Java community.

Now it is expected that Java 9 Standard Edition will be released on September 21 till then open source community will address and rectify the ongoing controversy over a planned but later rejected the approach to modularity.
