Java News Roundup - Week of March 22nd, 2021. A roundup of last week's news in the OpenJDK and wider Java ecosystem.
It has been a fairly significant week in the OpenJDK ecosystem.
Two of the JEPs related to the delivery of Pattern Matching have reached Candidate status.

The applet API was one of Java's original selling points - as a way of delivering rich client applications in the browser - and has been present since Java 1.0. In recent years, however, all mainstream browsers have removed support for this API as the browser has matured as an application delivery platform.
What is OpenJDK? OpenJDk or Open Java Development Kit is a free, open-source framework of the Java Platform, Standard Edition (or Java SE).
