☕️ Java 21 is Getting Closer to the Finish Line 🏁
Java 21 General Availability date is a little month from now, on 19th Sept to be precise. The changes are set in stoned and release candidates are heading out. As a Java developer, I am totally excited about the GA of JDK 21.
There are numerous changes and additions to Java 21, a few being moved to the next stages of preview or incubation. Virtual thread, in my opinion, would be the Top highlight of the features Java 21 is bringing. Record Pattern would be the game changer. And I have already talked about the Switch being on steroids in my previous post “Java Switch Statement is now more Powerful“. Now Pattern Matching with Switch would take it up one step further.
I will surely write more about them in brief and individually, so keep visiting CodersTea 💪

Before you go…
Hear me out, Here is the Plan.
I tried to divide the summaries into their own buckets to have a better understanding of the topic at hand. I couldn’t add all of those to this post but surely will add them as we know about them.
“🤝 United by Programming” is all about programming language updates.
“🏋️♂️ Work with Framework” is a bucket filled with frameworks we use.
“🛠️ You Tool” is a group for IDEs, editors, or any tools devs use.
“☁️ Cloud and You” will be all about cloud news such as from AWS, Google Cloud, or Azure.
“😈 Server Maniac” wants to grab all the server content such as Kafka, Kubernetes, and more.
“💁♂️ On the other hand” will deal with content that doesn’t fit a particular genre.
Some of the content may overlap with one another if I am trying to finish the deadline to complete the post. Do let me know in the comment if you see any such mistake and want to embarrass me.
See you in the next Post.
