Java is now on a six-month release schedule, with new features being added all the time. This workshop will show the most important features that have been added to Java, including functional features like streams, lambda expressions, and method references, and from there discusses modules, jshell, collection factory methods, private methods in interfaces, new annotations and more. The goal is to demonstrate not only what has been added, but why and where to use them.
Additional topics will include Local Variable Type Inference, the new HTTP client, the enhanced switch expressions, and more. If there is interest, coverage of preview features like records and text blocks will be included.
