Abstract

JDK 11 was released in September 2018, six months after JDK 10 and a year after JDK 9. This talk will walk you through the modular Java platform introduced in JDK 9, and explain how it enabled further evolution in JDK 10 and 11. We'll look at new Java language features that enhance productivity without compromising Java's traditional focus on readability and maintainability. Finally, we'll look ahead to the next feature release -- JDK 12 in March 2019.
