Just curious as to how everyone's doing on the MS style version releases Oracle has implemented: are you updating with each release or have you decided to stay in a certain version and why?
At this stage of development in my career, near the end, I am programming heavily in MS-SQL, SAS, and C#. I program Java mostly at home. My oldest son has taken an interest in programming and he is learning Java, and doing pretty well at it, for his own pleasure. We program games and utilities for our own use and work together on some of the projects. He likes 8.x so he has been reluctant to upgrade, so I'm staying with him in Java 8 so far, and realistically, I'll probably retire before I move on or have another large Java application to develop.
So just curious--what are you guys using?
Out on HF and heard nobody, but didn't call CQ? Nobody heard you either. 73 de N7GH
still on java 10 here. I have considered upgrading, but the neweties are not very impressive, not worth to upgrade. And in some programs I use javaFx classes, so these will probably break after an upgrade.
There are three kinds of actuaries: those who can count, and those who can't.
Regrettably I'm still using Java 8. Since I retired it seems like I don't have as much time for recreational programming. Ironic, isn't it? I'm also, just as regrettably, still using Eclipse Mars. One of these days I really should upgrade those things.
