Milan Bhagwat wrote:Hi Nicolai, Great to see book on Module system. Does this book also includes JDK 11 changes?
Yes, it's up to date with Java 11. That wasn't difficult, though, because there's only really one important module-system-related change between 9 and 11 and that's the removal of the Java EE modules.

-- Try-with-resources and multi-catch , plus NIO.2, which I studied for OCP 7, but not the upgrade to 8(!)
-- Lambdas and all the streams API details I studied for the upgrade to 8 (seemingly everything except the Date/Time API?...ha, so now I've been through that and the previous deprecated version, while Java 11 'direct' candidates do not have to cover either!)
Elaine Byrne wrote:On the other hand it seems I avoid having to study a few new (post-8) features (annotations and secure coding? - I'm not sure where these are described) – I know I can explore these by myself, but surely it would be better to have them included them in a separate 8->9 upgrade exam in place of the repeated material?

(And then, on a tangent, the appearance to the uninitiated that OCP for Java 8 is 3 versions behind the current 11.)

I wonder if there is any chance Oracle would reconsider the upgrade situation. Anyone know of any petitions on this? Suppose I could write to them (ha ha)...
