Five releases of Java in two years! Yes, the new fast cadence for the OpenJDK does work. Despite the short development cycle, the rate of change of Java is faster than it was before. In this session Simon will take a look at the rapid evolution of the Java platform with the introduction of new features in each of the recent releases:
- JDK 9: Java Platform Module System
- JDK 10: Local variable type inference
- JDK 11: JDK Flight Recorder
- JDK 12: Switch expressions
- JDK 13: Text bocks
- JDK 14: Records and pattern matching
He’ll also cover many of the smaller features that will make your life as a developer easier.
What might future JDKs include? To answer that question, he’ll explore some of the longer-term plans for Java, like project Amber, Loom and Valhalla.
