Records and Text Blocks: But What Else Is Interesting In OpenJDK 17?

By now, we all know that JDK 17 is the latest Java long-term supported release with several new language features. There are already many resources that explain the Java Record and Text Blocks in detail. But JDK 17 has much more interesting changes since JDK 11.

In this session, I go into more detail about some other interesting changes that are not language features but are a good reason to switch to JDK 17.

  • Improvements in the Class Data Sharing feature.
  • JDK Flight Recorder for monitoring purposes.
  • Improvements in Performances in the Garbage collectors
  • Preventing security issues with context-specific deserialization filters.

Besides the explanation, you also see these changes in action with some demos.
