This course provides an overview of the most important features in Java 12, such as preview language features like switch expressions, API updates, as well as features concerning performance and security enhancements.
Keeping up with Java can be a challenging task. Only 6 months after the realease of Java 11, you now have to contend with Java 12. In this course, What's New in Java 12, you get an overview off all the important new features in Java 12. First, you will learn about API changes, such as the CompactNumberFormat API and new methods on the String class. Next, you will discover a preview Java language feature called Switch Expressions. Finally, you will explore how to use JMH, a micro-benchmarking tool for Java code that is heavily used in JDK 12 itself. When you're finished with this course, you'll be ready to make the most of Java 12 in your own projects.
