Everything you need to know about Local Variable Type Inference: Java

In this article, I will be talking about Local variable type inference in Java. Local variable type inference in Java was released as part of Java 10 and it was the highlight feature of Java10.

Now, we’re going to look at the biggest change in Java 10 which was the introduction of local variable type inference. The Java language is sometimes considered to be a bit verbose. The language change we’re going to look at is an attempt to reduce the amount of boilerplate code we have to type in Java.

What is Local variable type Inference?

This feature is all about the variables in Java, whenever we declare a variable on the left-hand side we define a data type with the name of the variable and on the right-hand side, we define the expression to initialize the variable. Since we are talking about local variables here, these variables are limited to method scope i.e we are talking about variables inside the methods.

How to Install OpenJDK 11 on CentOS 8

What is OpenJDK?

OpenJDk or Open Java Development Kit is a free, open-source framework of the Java Platform, Standard Edition (or Java SE). It contains the virtual machine, the Java Class Library, and the Java compiler. The difference between the Oracle OpenJDK and Oracle JDK is that OpenJDK is a source code reference point for the open-source model. Simultaneously, the Oracle JDK is a continuation or advanced model of the OpenJDK, which is not open source and requires a license to use.

In this article, we will be installing OpenJDK on Centos 8.

Local Variable Type Inference: Declare Var, Not War

This tutorial teaches the basics of Java’s local variable type inference, specifically where you can and can’t use var in your code.

Java is changing rapidly, and with the six-month release cycle, we are getting new features to try with every release. In Java 10, local variable type inference was added. It was basically aimed at reducing boilerplate code and improving readability when declaring local variables with initializers.

Programs must be written for people to read and only incidentally for machines to execute

Going Beyond Java 8: Local Variable Type Inference (var) - DZone Java

According to some surveys, such as JetBrains’s great survey, Java 8 is currently the most used version of Java, despite being a 2014 release.

What you are reading is one in a series of articles titled ‘Going beyond Java 8,’ inspired by the contents of my book, Java for Aliens. These articles will guide you step-by-step through the most important features introduced to the language, starting from version 9. The aim is to make you aware of how important it is to move forward from Java 8, explaining the enormous advantages that the latest versions of the language offer.

In this article, we will talk about the most important new feature introduced with Java 10. Officially called local variable type inference, this feature is better known as the **introduction of the word **var. Despite the complicated name, it is actually quite a simple feature to use. However, some observations need to be made before we can see the impact that the introduction of the word var has on other pre-existing characteristics.

Reference Variable in Java

Before We Started with the Reference variable we should know about the following facts.

**1. **When we create an object(instance) of class then space is reserved in heap memory. Let’s understand with the help of an example.

Demo D1 = new Demo();

Reference Variable

Now, The space in the heap Memory is created but the question is how to access that space?.

Then, We create a Pointing element or simply called Reference variable which simply points out the Object(the created space in a Heap Memory).

Heap Memory

**Understanding Reference variable **

1. Reference variable is used to point object/values.

**2. **Classes, interfaces, arrays, enumerations, and, annotations are reference types in Java. Reference variables hold the objects/values of reference types in Java.

3. Reference variable can also store null value. By default, if no object is passed to a reference variable then it will store a null value.

**4. **You can access object members using a reference variable using **dot **syntax.
