Course Topics
  1. Understand the new Java release cycle and Long Term Support (LTS) releases
  2. Be familiar with significant deprecated and removed features, and how to work around them
  3. Create and use Java modules, understanding module descriptors, modular JARs, exports and dependencies, and the modulepath
  4. Understand the structure and behavior of the modular JDK, how it supports modular applications as well as legacy classpath-based code, and the implications of strong encapsulation on each
  5. Migrate classpath-based applications to Java 11, understanding the stages of migration and options available
  6. Recognize the issues with 3rd party libraries in a migration effort, and how to work with them on the modulepath and classpath
  7. Use local-variable type inference with var, including lambda parameters
  8. Gain a practical working knowledge of the JShell REPL tool, including working with code snippets and variables, configuration, and using external libraries
  9. Use the HTTP Client to access HTTP resources from Java, as well as understand the other options available
  10. Work with various HTTP request and response types, using both synchronous and asynchronous techniques
  11. Outline the new factory methods in Java Collections and understand native immutable collections
  12. Describe the motivation for multi-release JAR files (MR-JARs), understand their structure, and how to create them
  13. Understand the runtime behavior of MR-JARs in both legacy and modern JVMs, and principles and strategies for working with them effectively
  14. Outline the principles of Reactive Programming and how it differs from traditional synchronous invocation models
  15. Describe Reactive Streams and the role of the Flow API that defines the Java platform’s support for them
  16. Understand the characteristics and benefits of custom runtime images
  17. Use jdeps to analyze application dependencies, and create custom runtimes with jlink, for both modular and classpath-based applications
  18. Explore some of the more important additional features and APIs, including new features for interfaces, the Process API, new JDK tools and command line options
