Java’s new release cycle introduces new features at a more rapid pace, requiring increased attention from users. This course provides in-depth coverage of the important new features through Java 11 LTS. It also provides an overview of useful new features in Java 12+ that are likely to appear in Java 17 (the next LTS release). Technical coverage starts with the new Java Platform Module System (JPMS), which presents a fundamental shift in how applications are organized, and interconnected to the libraries they use. We introduce modules from the ground up, show how to use them, describe your choices in usage, as well as caveats and pitfalls. We also provide guidelines for migration from non-modular applications. The course covers many other new and powerful features that will be useful to developers (see the detailed outline for specifics). The course also includes several extra optional labs and guided self-study exercises in these additional areas. The course is very hands-on, including numerous code examples and programming labs that reinforce the concepts presented, so that attendees can immediately employ what they’ve learned in their current projects.
Working knowledge of Java programming, including use of inheritance, interfaces, and exceptions.
