While most people are still using Java 8 from six years ago, new versions of the language are being released every six months! The latest Java versions provide an abundance of new features, such as functional programming capabilities, switch expressions, local variable type inference, additions to the Stream API, new factory methods for Collections, text blocks and much more. With so much content, your Java upgrade should be more than simply the update of a jar file. Your test code no longer has to be as verbose as it once was — this means less code to write and maintain! This talk introduces some of the new features of Java 9 – 14 and provides examples of how these features can be used for test automation.
Key Takeaways: * Introduction of new features in the latest 6 releases of Java (Java 9 – 14) * Examples of how the features can be used for test automation projects * Greater command of the programming language
