Well almost here
I am quite excited about the new release of Java SDK. Here are couple of my favorite new features.
- Strings in switch statements: Now Strings can be used in switch statements , saving us implementing a horrendous if block.
- Try with resources: You can now declare auto closable resources in try and cleaning up of these resources are done automatically. No more massive finally blocks
- Diamond formation for generics declarations
- Multi catch clauses: If your catch blocks are the same now you don’t need to declare them separately. Different exception types can be declared in the same catch block separated by |
Here is the link for all new features:
